Hand-made in Europe
The Pro-Ject T1 Phono SB is entirely manufactured in Europe, from the smallest component to the plinth and tonearm, setting this turntable apart from other mass-produced competitors. With such close eyes on the production of this turntable, Pro-Ject is able to deliver a turntable with truly astounding build quality, so you’re guaranteed an exceptional analog experience.
Push-button speed control
To make it as easy as possible for customers to get started with the Pro-Ject T1 Phono SB an electronic speed control is integrated into the turntable - activated with a simple switch on the front-left of the plinth. This allows easy switching between the two most common speed formats, 33 and 45 RPM.
8.6” aluminium construction tonearm & Ortofon OM5e cartridge
The Pro-Ject T1 Phono SB has a straight, 8.6” tonearm with a stiff aluminium construction. This one-piece tonearm also features low-friction bearings for absolute accuracy in use. Besides the clean and stylish looks, the integrated head shell won‘t cause any additional vibrations either, a big upgrade from common screwed or glued-on head shells you normally see in turntables at this price point. The Pro-Ject T1 Phono SB comes pre-fitted with an Ortofon OM5e Moving Magnet cartridge, which features an elliptical diamond stylus tip for accurate playback and a pre-weighted counter weight. Meaning it is ready to play, straight out of the box! No adjustments, no need to balance the tonearm.
Phonostage on board
The Pro-Ject T1 Phono SB includes an on-board switchable moving magnet phono stage. This means that the turntable is ready-to-go out of the box, but also has the flexibility for the customer to upgrade their phono stage in the future. This could be a separate phonostage, or an in-built phono in their existing amplifier.
Heavy glass platter & stylish plinth
The Pro-Ject T1 Phono SB is supplied with a heavy, low-resonance glass platter. A significant upgrade from plastic or lightweight steel alternatives, this new platter both looks stylish & provides the consistent speed that your vinyl needs to sound its best. The plinth supporting the Pro-Ject T1 Phono SB is created using precision CNC routing, meaning there are no hollow spaces, as well as no plastic pieces, commonly found in entry-level turntables, resulting in avoidance of unwanted vibrations.

T1 Phono SB Specs
Legacy audiophiles forget that we all started somewhere, and most likely it wasn’t with a megabucks system. I can’t think of a combination that is more user friendly, with such a high level of sound and build quality than the Project T1 Phono SB.Read More
lt’s a lot of kit for the price - turntable, cartridge/stylus, built in phono stage & speed control, fitment tools and accessories all included. Plus it looks and sounds amazing. Definitely good value for money.Read More
I had been kicking the tyres on Pro-Ject turntables for a while. A friend purchased and was very happy so I made the leap. The T1 was an excellent choice to complement my Sonos system. Build and sound quality are great. The online service was efficient and my turntable was delivered safely to my door in a few days. Very happy customer.
Great service, simple set up, works a treat. At this stage just connected to my JBL soundbar until I purchase something more suitable. But now able to play all our old, great LPs.
Great service, fast shipping and awesome product!!
Recently we wanted to get a new record player to go with our Sonos Play 5 so we didn't have to run mixing boards and amplifiers to listen to records. We did our research and decided on the Pro-Ject Audio T1 Phono SB and I'm so glad we did. After making the purchase I received a call from Ellery at Pro-Ject Audio to make sure I understood the type of record player I was buying and to make sure I had something to run it when I received it, I have never had anyone follow up on an online purchase I've made to make sure the item I bought would work when I got it home; this is the type of service I expect walking into a store. But the service didn't end here. Our record player was dispatched quickly and I got another follow up, this time an email, once the record player had arrived to see if I needed any help setting it up. I highly recommend Pro-Ject Audio and you will not be disappointed with the record player or the service you receive. If I was to give a star rating out of 5 for my experience I would give 5 across the board.
