Pro-Ject 1 Xpression Carbon UKX


The 1 Xpression Carbon was released in 2013 as a beautifully designed turntable for true audiophiles, with some brand new features that have never been seen on any other Pro-Ject turntables before.

From the stunning finish to the audiophile technical specification, every element of this turntable has been meticulously designed to offer the best performance for the money.

The Xpression Carbon advances on other turntables thanks to its one-piece carbon fibre tonearm, which is mounted in a brand new heavy-weight assembly.

The over-sized support isolates the tonearm from the plinth allowing only the original music signal to be sent to your amplifier. Mounted on the tonearm is the new Ortofon 2M Silver, a special version of Ortofon’s world famous 2M Red cartridge, finished with silver spools for optimal signal generation.

The Xpression Carbon benefits from a new AC motor design with DC power supply. It achieves this unique combination by incorporating an AC generator on the underside of the turntable – so the DC power supply signal is changed to a clean AC supply, which allows the 9V motor to perform at its optimal level. The motor is isolated from the main plinth – to avoid resonance transference – by two rubber gromits designed and manufactured by Ortofon’s expert rubber division. The motor applies rotating force to a sub-platter, which drives the acrylic platter. The acrylic platter creates an alternative aesthetic and sound. The use of acrylic reduces tinny frequencies and helps accentuate the mid-range better.

The Xpression Carbon is supplied with both a felt and a cork mat, to tailor the sound perfectly for your ears, and your environments.

The Review from What Hi-Fi says “The Pro-ject 1 Xpression UKX is clearly one of the class leaders. Nothing else at this price digs up as much detail or delvers it with such precision”  5 Stars
