The Pro-Ject E1 Phono Turntable:

An Ideal Introduction to Vinyl: Whether you're new to vinyl or rediscovering your old LPs, the Pro-Ject E1 Phono offers an excellent balance of sound quality and practical features. Crafted to Pro-Ject's renowned high standards, the E1 Phono is a solidly constructed turntable. It boasts a CNC-machined composite fibre plinth, an aluminium tonearm, and an Ortofon cartridge. Unlike other budget turntables that may offer fixed speeds or cumbersome belt changes, the E1 Phono features electronic speed control, making it effortless to switch between 33rpm albums and 45rpm singles.

Built-In Phono Stage for Versatile Connectivity: One of the standout features of the E1 Phono model is its built-in phono pre-amp. This means you can easily connect the turntable to any hi-fi system or speaker with an 'AUX' input (an RCA cable is supplied, but your system may require an RCA to 3.5mm cable). Alternatively, you can still connect the E1 Phono to an amplifier's phono input, just like the standard E1 model.

Exceptional Sound Quality: Pro-Ject's extensive experience and design expertise shine through in the E1 Phono's build and design. The CNC-machined plinth is free of hollow spaces, offering excellent vibration resistance. This, combined with the isolation feet and anti-resonance platter, ensures that the E1 Phono delivers well-damped, low-distortion sound. The high-quality, isolated DC motor guarantees smooth and stable pitch, providing a lifelike sound experience.

Newly Designed Aluminium Tonearm: The tonearm of the E1 Phono is a standout feature. It's constructed from a single piece of aluminium with a fixed headshell, making it both lightweight and rigid. A rigid tonearm tracks more precisely, allowing you to hear every detail and nuance from your records. All tonearm settings come factory-set, making this Pro-Ject deck ready to play straight out of the box.

Complete Package with Ortofon OM5E Cartridge: The standard package includes a pre-fitted Ortofon OM5E cartridge, known for its quality and budget-friendly performance. It delivers a smooth, detailed sound that suits various music genres. As part of the Optimum Match (OM) range, the stylus is upgradable to 10, 20, 30, and 40 models, offering room for future upgrades.

Electronic Speed Control for Convenience: The E1 Phono includes electronic speed control, a valuable feature for a starter turntable. Many turntables in this class lack speed control or feature a cumbersome twin pulley system that requires manual belt adjustments. With the E1 Phono, you get a simple switch that allows you to effortlessly switch between 33 and 45 speeds at the push of a button. If you own a collection of singles and frequently switch speeds, electronic speed control significantly enhances your user experience.

Choice of Stylish Finishes: The E1 Phono boasts a timeless and elegant design. It's available in black, white, or walnut finishes, ensuring there's a colour to suit your style. All models include a removable dust lid.

  • Detachable RCA Leads for Cable Upgrades: Enjoy the flexibility of upgrading your cables with detachable RCA leads, allowing you to fine-tune your audio setup.
  • Ortofon OM5E Cartridge: The turntable comes pre-fitted with the Ortofon OM5E cartridge, featuring an elliptical stylus profile for precise tracking and high-quality sound reproduction.
  • Manual Tonearm: The 8.6” manual tonearm boasts an aluminum tube and a purpose-designed headshell, ensuring precise and accurate playback of your vinyl records.
  • Built-In MM Phono Stage: Benefit from the built-in Moving Magnet (MM) phono stage, delivering a line-level output for seamless integration with your audio system.
  • Electronic Speed Control: Easily switch between 33 and 45 RPM vinyl playback with the electronic speed control switch, offering convenience and versatility.
  • Gold-Plated RCA Connectors: The turntable is equipped with gold-plated RCA connectors, enhancing cable connections and optimizing signal transfer for superior audio quality.
  • Damped DC Drive Motor: The damped DC drive motor operates quietly, reducing noise and ensuring a distraction-free listening experience.
  • Anti-Resonance Design: The plinth and platter are meticulously crafted with CNC-machined composite wood fibers and ABS polymer, minimizing resonance and enhancing audio clarity.
  • Anti-Vibration Feet: To further enhance audio purity, the turntable features anti-vibration feet that effectively minimize external vibrations.
  • Dust Cover Included: Keep your turntable protected from dust and debris with the included dust cover, preserving the longevity of your vinyl records.
  • Handmade in Europe: Rest assured in the quality of your turntable, as it is carefully handcrafted in Europe using premium materials, all at an accessible entry-level price point.
