The T1 comes in three different versions. Choose what's right for you!
Let us show you where T1 dwells
The Base Model
For people who know what they want. The most cost-effective T1 variation: The base T1 has a direct phono output. Connect to your phono input or phono preamp of choice. Switch between 33 & 45 RPM via manual drive belt change.
T1 Phono SB
Phono Preamp and Speed Change
More convenience and flexibility: 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.
A wireless generation: On top of the base model, the T1 BT features a built-in phono stage and a BT transmitter for wireless music streaming to your favourite BT enabled speakers.
Our T1 is the first T-Line turntable, aiming to deliver true high-fidelity sound on a limited budget. Boasting premium materials, stylish aesthetics and a rich, lively sound, the extensive development process has ensured that there has been no compromise in the sound performance when achieving such an affordable price.

EISA Best Product 2020 – 2021
Pro-Ject has been building turntables for around 30 years and has virtually reinvented the market of quality-oriented budget turntables with the first Pro-Ject 1 and the later debut models. The T1 may be considered the current interpretation of this line and audiophile analog package with top sound at a low price. Pro-Ject offers versions from the absolute basic to versions with integrated phono preamplifier or wireless Bluetooth transmission. Always on board are the sturdy chassis, a high-precision bearing for the glass platter, and the newly developed aluminum tonearm made from one piece. Thus, the T1 achieves an extremely balanced, detailed sound image, where Ortofon's ready-made pre-installed MM pickup OM5E underlines the plug-and-play approach.
“The Pro-Ject surprised me – it sounds better.“
U.S.A., 01. 2022
• The glass platter is quite nice.
• The machining is done to close tolerances – very nice.
• The adjustable hinges on the dustcover are kind of nice.
• The integrated phono preamp in here is good.
• The Pro-Ject sounded the best out of all 3 of them.
• Pro-Ject has gone to great lengths to eliminate areas that will add additional resonances or vibrations with this table – and I can hear it!
• The foundation of this table is better than that of other tables with the OM 5E cartridge.
avforums reviewed the T1
This is an invigorating listen that can get more out of your records than you might reasonably expect at this price point. This is a seriously good record player for under £300.
