Pro-Ject X1 B Gloss Black
This award-winning turntable has set a standard for showing the audio world how proper execution of basic principles in turntable design can amount to audiophile-caliber sonics affordably.
It attacks the problems of isolation & resonance from multiple angles featuring height-adjustable TPE-damped aluminum feet, a massive plinth of top-quality MDF, a solid acrylic record platter, and a one-piece carbon-wrapped aluminum tonearm tube with precision bearings. Its motor is also shielded, TPE-isolated and fed by the cleanest power delivered by Speed Box technology for push-button speed change and spot-on stability.
The X1 B also integrates with all of Pro-Ject's Balanced components for the cleanest sound possible. In the early days of music recording and reproduction, balanced operation was necessary to stave off noise. This was the standard. However, as demand increased for easier, more affordable at-home listening, unbalanced (RCA) connections were developed & implemented for cost-cutting & ease-of-manufacture and were popularized. Balanced connection in music reproduction became a thing reserved only for the ‘high-end.’
For Pro-Ject, the question became this: why NOT position our customers to hear the difference? This is why X1 B along with our balanced phono preamps (and cables!) were developed. We invite you to experience the difference achieving balance makes in your enjoyment of analog playback. What it translates to in its most concise definition is more music, less noise. With noise eradicated, expect a new degree of depth to the sound stage allowing more detail to emerge and exceptionally heightened dynamics. Your favorite records truly offer more than meets the ear, and X1 B is equipped to deliver the full extent of what you’ve been missing.
