True Balanced connection

One of the significant benefits of balanced connections is their ability to eliminate noise and interference picked up during signal transmission. Moreover, cartridges are naturally balanced signal transducers, making the True Balanced approach particularly advantageous since it utilises the full potential of the cartridge's signal. 

High quality build

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 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.

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.

Pick it PRO Balanced cartridge

The new Pick it PRO Balanced cartridge is a revised version of the Pick it PRO which allows you a "True Balanced“ signal transmission. Standard MM cartridges cannot be used with a symmetrical connection, as it would result in a difference between the left and right channel. The big advantage of a balanced connection is its ability to remove picked up noise and interference.
