Project T1 Turntable

Time for T1. We have taken our popular entry-level turntable design and improved every aspect of it.
The result is a very refined product. Made in Europe

Improving our budget turntable wasn't easy. Project has been the top-selling turntable in Europe and America

It was not easy, as Project Audio turntables are very good, especially when it comes to price/performance and the materials used for production:
1) A new glass platter.  

Glass is super rigid, and the moving energy will also create a flywheel effect. The result is an even quieter and noiseless operation and less wow and flutter - more stable speeds.

- We have a CNC machined base – the rest has lightweight cheap plastic or particleboard chassis with plastic veneers, a lot of air enclosure

- We have an ultra-precise Main bearing (tolerance .001") mounted on the rigid base. It has a hardened steel base and brass bushing
Finally, the purpose-chosen turntable feet also do a good job of isolating the T1 from ambient vibrations around your hi-fi system.

-We added a one-piece 8.6" tonearm with low friction bearings – the rest has a glued together tonearm with many small plastic pieces

Again, Project Audio has set the bar for an affordable high-performance turntable that also looks and feels incredibly luxurious higher than ever before. We are excited to win more customers for our hobby and passion: analog music listening.
