Pro-Ject X1 B Balanced Turntable

A belt-drive with 8.6" tonearm and ships with Sumiko Rainier MM cartridge.

The award-winning X1 and X2 turntables feature height-adjustable TPE-damped aluminum feet, massive plinths of top-quality MDF, solid acrylic record platters and one-piece carbon-fiber-wrapped aluminum tonearm tubes with precision bearings. Their motors are also shielded, TPE-isolated, and fed by the cleanest power delivered by Speed Box technology for push-button speed change and spot-on stability. 

The X1 B has an effective tonearm length of 8.6″ with a 3.3 lb., 20 mm thick platter. 

Getting Balanced

Once you put a moving coil cartridge on the X1 B, you are using its full ability to connect to a fully balanced phonostage. MC cartridges are inherently balanced, and when you’re ready to switch to the balanced experience, select your MC cartridge, add the mini XLR connecting cable, connect it to Phono Box S3 B or DS 3’s mini XLR input and you’re in for a treat. It's important to select a moving coil cartridge that perfectly matches your tastes and system, so the X1 B ships with a Sumiko Rainier moving magnet to get you started out of the box.
