In 1991 Pro-Ject started a revolution in HiFi with the introduction of the Pro-Ject 1 turntable. A new high-end, low budget turntable at a time when CD was king. Against all odds, Pro-Ject were creating interest in analogue audio at a time when others were turning their backs, and the success was only down to three critical philosophies. Simple yet technically correct design, High-quality valuable materials, and the fact they are fully handcrafted, expert engineers, made in Europe.
There are no fancy, unnecessary features; it was a strictly manual turntable design and all of these decisions resulted in unbelievable sound at a fantastic price. The X1 is based on the same concept as the P1, but improved in every aspect thanks to modern materials and new production methods. Including a better; chassis, platter, motor isolation, tonearm, counter weight, cartridge and more! The X1 has really made a substantial improvement in every way over the P1.
