Pro-Ject 1 Xpression Carbon Classic (new lower price excl. cartridge)

$1,199.00 inc. GST

Factory modifications take Pro-Ject’s 1 Xpression turntable to new performance levels!

Following on from a prestigious series, the 1Xpression Carbon Classic is the 6th generation of 1991’s classic Pro-Ject 1. This up-spec version of their iconic turntable includes an aluminium platter.


The belt drive uses a low noise, decoupled AC motor with a precision frequency DC-driven AC generator for exact speed stability. A complex main platter, similar in construction to their high-end Xtension models, simply can’t found elsewhere in this price range. Thermo plastic elastomers (TPE) are used in a sandwich construction with aluminium for optimised resonance behaviour. The platter bearing axle is made from low tolerance chrome plated stainless steel running on a Teflon thrust plate in a bronze bearing housing. The main plinth is made from low resonance MDF timber, which is decoupled from structure-born noise by special absorber feet using TPE technology.

But enough about the sterling build quality. The sum of all these premium components is a sound quality that will make you forget everything else… And just listen.
