1Xpression Carbon Classic is the 6th generation of the hi-fi classic Pro-Ject 1, which was presented for the first time in 1991.
No other entry-level turntable concept is more audiophile and the current version includes a totally new carbon tone-arm with spin-off „EVO“-technology. It`s new innovative gimbal design features a resonance damping counterweight, that allows best performancefor any cartridge. The approved belt drive design offers low noise AC motor with effective motor decoupling, ultra precision frequencyDC-driven AC generator (like Speed Box) for ultimate speed stability.
The complex main platter construction cannot befound elsewhere in this price range and is similar to the Xtension models. Advanced thermo plastic elastomers (TPE) are used in asandwich construction with aluminium alloy for optimised resonance behaviour. Platter bearing axle is made from lowtolerance chrome plated stainless steel running on Teflon bottom in a bronze bearing housing. Turntable main plinth is from lowresonance MDF, which effectivly is decoupled from structure-born noise by special absorber feet, that use TPE technology. As aspecial feature, this package comes with the outstanding 2M silver cartridge, which features silver spools for ultimate fidelity.
