T1 Phono SB
New Generation Audiophile Entry Level Turntable
Built-in Phono Stage & Electronic Speed Switch – Made in Europe
The stylish CNC-machined plinth of the T1 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 glass platter is also a heavy, zero-resonance design. Finally, the purpose-chosen turntable feet also do a good job of isolating the T1 from ambient vibrations around your hi-fi system. In the T1 the 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. The tonearm new tonearm has an effective length of 8.6”. This one-piece aluminium tonearm also features low-friction bearings for absolute accuracy in use. The T1 comes with a pre-adjusted Ortofon OM 5E Moving Magnet cartridge and is ready to use right out of the box. Also super shielded, semi-symmetrical, low-capacitance Pro-Ject phono cables are included.
Compared to the base T1-model, the Phono SB version includes a built-in, Pro-Ject designed, high-quality phono MM stage and an electronic speed switch between 33 and 45 RPM. For the drive system, where most alternative products may use unregulated DC motors with wide speed fluctuations, the T1 Phono SB features our proven system of an electronically regulated, precision-speed AC motor.

A very good record player for under £300
…one of the best-looking affordable turntables…
The build quality is solid and the details are nicely worked out. I can’t remember installing any turntable that went together as logically and easily as this one does.
…the low end that the T1 Phono SB does possess is wielded with commendable dexterity.
…there isn’t much that will unsettle the T1 Phono SB or cause the performance to be anything other than very enjoyable.
If you are looking for a turntable that will be up and running in minutes and is able to deliver an engaging performance, the T1 Phono SB is ideal.
Pro-Ject makes a dream come true with the T1
The little plug-and-play turntable sounds very mature. Even listeners used to high-end gear will
appreciate how the Pro-Ject-Ortofon set tackles even the most difficult music passages.
The T1 deals with high levels masterfully.
…the T1 is fun straight out the box – great value, hassle-free, ready-to-use.
Hifi Pig reviews the T1 Phono SB
The Pro-Ject T1 SB Phono is versatile and very easy to install in a number of different systems, from a
beginner‘s first Hifi to something more advancecd. Definitely something I will consider buying for his first system in his room.
