Project 1 Expression Carbon Turntable

The Pro-Ject 1 was the original turntable designed by Heinz Lichtenegger, founder of Pro-Ject Audio, back in the early 1990s. Since then, the 1 has been made in many forms, most notably of which was the popular Xpression series. Now, in 2013, the latest incarnation has been released - the 1 Xpression Carbon.

The Xpression Carbon advances on from its forbears with some brand new features that have never been seen on any other Pro-Ject turntables before. From the stunning finish to the audiophile technical specification, every element of this turntable has been meticulously designed to offer the best performance for the money - just like the original Pro-Ject 1.

The Xpression Carbon advances on other turntables thanks to its one-piece carbon fibre tonearm, which is mounted in a brand new heavy-weight assembly, inspired by the superior Evolution tonearms. This over-sized support effectively isolates the tonearm from the plinth, and takes any minor resonances in the tonearm and dissipates them immediately - allowing only the original music signal to be sent to your amplifier. Mounted on the tonearm is the new Ortofon 2M Silver, a special version of Ortofons world famous 2M Red cartridge, finished with silver spools for optimal signal generation.

The Xpression Carbon benefits from a new AC motor design with DC power supply. The motor is isolated from the main plinth - to avoid resonance transference - by two rubber gromits designed and manufactured by Ortofons expert rubber division. The motor applies rotating force to a sub-platter, which drives the high-gloss main platter. The Xpression Carbon is supplied with both a felt and a cork mat, to tailor the sound perfectly for your ears, and your environment.

The Xpression Carbon is available in three stunning high-gloss finishes; Black, Bordeaux and Midnight Blue.
