Project T1 Turntable

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

In Canada it is offered in Black and Walnut
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 particle board 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.
