EISA Best Product 2019 – 2020
The Pro-ject name is synonymous with value-for-money turntables built in Europe. Since 1991 the company has arguably been leading the vinyl revival, and the X1 is its latest reinvention of the classic Pro-Ject 1 deck that started it all. Look beyond the gloss finish, using eight layers of paint and several rounds of hand-polishing – yes, on an affordable turntable – and you’ll find just about every aspect of the design has been improved, from the MDF plinth to the platter, the motor suspension and speed control, and the carbon/aluminium sandwich tonearm. Even the pre-fitted cartridge is new, being made by Ortofon and tuned by Pro-Ject. This is surely the best sub-€1000 turntable package on the market.
Hi-Fi Choice reviews the X1
Excellent low-cost turntable package with an upbeat sound. Pro-Ject’s X1 is an impressive turntable package.

An accomplished design in its own right. It's pretty much there in terms of being the best value. More than just a worthy successor to the original.
