Brand Project

The New Project X1 Turntable has the same design concept as their original P1  There were no fancy, unnecessary features, it was a strictly manual turntable design and all of these decisions resulted in unbelievable sound at a fantastic price. The X1 is based on the same concept as the P1, but improved in every aspect thanks to modern materials and new production methods.
