The Chassis

Starting with the chassis, Pro-Ject have crafted the X1 from MDF, rather than standard particle boards resulting in a better sounding and feeling turntable. This chassis is then finished with 8 layers of painting and a hand-polished finish, designed to look good and remain looking good, especially when compared to the commonly used foil painting techniques.

The Motor

The chassis houses a sophisticated DC/AC generator board which, combined with the convenient speed control board, delivers clean and stable power to the quiet-running motor. For improved performance the motor is decoupled from the main plinth using a new motor suspension system.

The Sub-platter

In the X1, the motor drives a new, heavy, non-resonant Acryl platter via a sub-platter drive system and a premium grade main bearing for liquid smooth rotation. This is the perfect platform on which to place your precious vinyl records, guaranteeing absolute reliability in its performance and sonic character.

The Tonearm

The X1 is also better than its predecessors thanks to the super-stiff, perfectly tempered Carbon/Alu sandwich construction tonearm. This new 8.6” tonearm design is incredibly light and stiff, with improved resistance to external interference. Finished as one-piece, with a non-resonance-inducing headshell, the X1 tonearm can also be set for azimuth and VTA adjustment, offering the flexibility that so many people are asking for. The tonearm is then supplied with a TPE-damped counterweight, further reducing cartridge-tonearm resonances.
