Pro-Ject A1 Automatic Turntable
The Pro-Ject A1 Automatic Turntable is handmade in Germany by a traditional manufacture with a wealth of experience in making automatic turntables. Even the individual components are 98% made and produced in Germany. Paired with Pro-Ject technology and ideas, they set new standards in automatic turntable design. The new A1 is your best companion to comfortably enjoy your favourite vinyl’s.
Ortofon OM10 – Detailed Response & Microdynamics
A little-known fact is that the OM series of cartridges have their developmental roots and legacy in ultra-light-mass tonearm designs. Pre-fitted and adjusted in our factory, it is the perfect partner for your A1.
New Headshell – Carbon fibre reinforced
The headshell is made of carbon fibre reinforced polymer which is super stable and rigid, while keeping the weight super low. The composite material results in excellent internal damping of resonances.
Wood Chassis – Heavy and avoids hollow spaces
The chassis avoids hollow spaces wherever possible, with just enough space to precision fit all the inner workings of the A1. As a result, the chassis’ heavy mass reduces unwanted resonances to a minimum.
Damped Platter – Precision balanced aluminum
The damping ring on the inside adds weight and reduces resonances. In the last step the platter is turned and precision balanced to receive its fine edges and lowest wow and flutter deviations.
Connect it E – Semi-balanced RCA cable
To guarantee a perfect connection to your amp we use a high-quality phono RCA cable. Our Connect it E is a semi-balanced, low-capacitance cable, with superior shielding.
Phono Preamp – Built-in switchable preamp
If you don’t have a phono preamplifier in your current HiFi setup you will benefit of the A1s built-in one. If you want to use another phono preamp, you can easliy switch it off.
33/45 RPM – Ready for singles & LPs
No need to change the belt position. Easily change speed with the push of only a single button & listen to your favourite LPs aswell as singles.
Automat Line – Handmade in Germany
The A1 is fully handmade in Germany and looks back on decades of experience. Paired with Pro-Ject technology, it sets new standards in automatic turntable design.
