About the Pro-Ject T1 Phono SB

A solid, affordable turntable

I looked at and listened to the Pro-Ject T1 Phono SB before I saw its price tag, and I was surprised to learn how budget-friendly it is. The base is constructed out of solid materials with a nice finish, and the heavy glass platter is a rarity at this price point. There's also a factory-installed Ortofon OM 5E moving magnet cartridge on the tonearm. All of that adds up to a turntable that looks great, sounds great, and won't break the bank.

Convenient and easy to operate

The switchable built-in phono preamp makes this 'table very convenient for just about any setup.You can switch it off and connect to your own separate phono stage or the phono input on a stereo receiver. Or engage the turntable's phono preamp and connect directly to a pair of powered stereo speakers. And you can switch from 33-1/3 to 45 rpm electronically, without having to make manual belt adjustments.

Features

Built-In Phono Preamp: The Pro-Ject T1 Phono SB features a built-in phono preamp that allows you to connect the turntable to an integrated amp or receiver that does not have a dedicated Phono MM input. This is a feature that can be turned off when using an integrated amp or receiver with a phono input. The Pro-Ject turntable is equipped with an attached 4' stereo RCA cable to connect to the line-level or Phono MM input of your AV receiver or integrated amplifier.

Low-Noise Design: For the drive system, where many turntables may use un-regulated DC motors with wide speed fluctuations, the T1 Phono SB features Pro-Ject's proven system of an electronically regulated, precision-speed AC motor. The T1 Phono SB also comes with electronic speed switching between 33 and 45 RPM. The result is a low-noise, stable drive system for the turntable. The precision-speed AC motor drives a belt-system, attached to a newly designed sub-platter, which is mounted into an ultra-precise 0.001mm main bearing with a hardened steel axle and brass bushing (just like Pro-Ject's coveted Essential III turntables). Alongside this chosen motor system, the T1 Phono SB is able to ensure a smooth, anti-resonant rotational platform for the tonearm and cartridge to ride across.

One-Piece Tonearm: The tonearm on the T1 Phono SB is a new model, based on previous Pro-Ject designs. With its straight, 8.6" effective length and stiff aluminum construction, this one-piece tonearm also features low-friction bearings for absolute accuracy in use. Besides the clean and stylish looks, the integrated headshell won't cause any additional vibrations either, and is a big improvement over many other detachable, screwed-on or glued-on headshells.

Ortofon OM5e MM Cartridge: The Pro-Ject T1 Phono SB comes supplied with an Ortofon OM5e Moving Magnet cartridge, featuring an elliptical diamond stylus tip for true high-fidelity playback from your vinyl record collection.

Zero-Resonance Construction: The stylish CNC-machined plinth features no plastic parts and is carefully manufactured to ensure there are no hollow spaces inside, therefore avoiding unwanted vibrations within the chassis. Carrying this philosophy through the design, the included 8mm glass platter is also a heavy, zero-resonance design (avoiding the flaws of plastic or lightweight steel alternatives). Finally, the purpose-chosen turntable feet also do a good job of isolating the T1 from ambient vibrations around your hi-fi system.

Added Protection: The Pro-Ject T1 Phono SB comes with a hinged, clear plastic dust cover and a felt mat to protect the turntable and your records.

when it says scratch and dent, is it that noticeable?
[ Joe  May 31, 2022 ]
1 answer
A
It is possible for scratch and dent items to have a minor blemish that is noticeable. It is also possible for the manufacturer's accessories have been replaced with generic equivalents and this is the cause of it being in this stock level. We do not have a way to find out which cause got it here or where the blemish, if it has one, is located on the product.

Q
Does the Pro-Ject T-1 turntable have real wood veneer or is the walnut vinyl wrap?
[ Big Mike  Mar 15, 2020 ]
3 answers
A
I did not get the walnut turntable, i got the black, I presume its a walnut veneer!!
[ James  Mar 15, 2020 ]
A
Appears to me it's real wood veneer.
[ Dennis  Mar 15, 2020 ]
A
I don't think it's a wrap as I believe the plinth is a compressed material; it's more akin to how ikea colors their shelving where the color is uniform throughout . I don't see this chipping or peeling for those reasons if that's your concern. The build is quite high quality for the price range.
