About the Pro-Ject T1

Good sound at a great price

The Pro-Ject T1 packs quite a few quality features into a turntable that boasts a very reasonable price tag. 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.

Product Research


Low-Noise Design: For the drive system, where many turntables may use un-regulated DC motors with wide speed fluctuations, the T1 features Pro-Ject's proven system of an electronically regulated, precision-speed AC motor. The T1 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 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 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 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 comes with a hinged, clear plastic dust cover and a felt mat to protect the turntable and your records.

Does the dust cover fit over a record if it's playing?

[ Ted  Jul 26, 2021 ]
Yes, it does. The dust cover hinge can also be tightened to remain open at any angle. Mine is under a shelf, and only opens 45°.

Apologizes..Is the Parasound zphono pre amp a good match with this turntable?
[ Stephen  Jul 19, 2021 ]
1 answer
If your receiver has a phono input, you don't need a pre-amp for this turntable. Otherwise, any pre amp should work, if you need to use one.
[ ANDREW  Jul 19, 2021 ]
Is the Paramount iPhone pre amp a good match?
[ Stephen  Jul 19, 2021 ]
2 answers
Yes it is.
[ Dermot  Jul 19, 2021 ]
[ Mike  Jul 19, 2021 ]
Does this player come with it's own pre amp?
[ Stephen  Jul 19, 2021 ]
1 answer
This record player does not come with a pre-amp. Your receiver or amplifier must have a "Phono" input in order to provide a suitable input from the record player. Cables are included for the connection to your receiver or amplifier. If your receiver or amplifier has no phono input, you will have to provide a pre-amp to allow that connection.
[ Stan  Jul 20, 2021 ]
what should be used as a power source? I see a 15 volt jack receptacle but no cords for converting from 110 volts
[ James  Dec 26, 2020 ]

Standard 120v household outlet.
[ JORDAN  Jul 25, 2021 ]
Sorry but had eye surgery and havent opened package yet. Will let you know. Happy holidays!
[ BILL  Dec 26, 2020 ]
What speakers would go with this?
[ Andrea  Dec 13, 2020 ]
3 answers
My turntable is black,, not walnut. I have with black Bose speakers, excellent sound.
[ Sharon  Dec 13, 2020 ]
I am using old JBLs w/ an Old Onkyo receiver
[ DEBRA  Dec 13, 2020 ]
This turntable needs a phono preamp or an amp/receiver with a phono input. If you don't have that or don't want to deal with that I suggest a powered speaker with a built in phono input preamp the Kanto YU4 is a good choice and there are others sold here.
[ VOLHA  Dec 13, 2020 ]
What speakers are compatible?
[ Andrea  Dec 13, 2020 ]
1 answer
Andre, this is simply a turntable. You must have a received or amplifier with a phono input to make it work. By itself, it is useless. Speakers would connect to the receiver or amplifier, not the turntable.
[ Stan  Dec 13, 2020 ]
