The Pro-Ject A1 Automatic Turntable is the ultimate choice for music enthusiasts who want to enjoy their vinyl collection to the fullest. This high-quality turntable is handmade in Germany by a manufacturer with a wealth of experience in making automatic turntables, ensuring that it is built to last. The A1 is designed to bring HiFi Stereo music enjoyment to as many people as possible, and it achieves this by offering a fully automatic start/stop feature and 98% German-made components.

One of the A1's standout features is its 8.3" ultra-light-mass aluminum tonearm. This tonearm is designed to work perfectly with the Ortofon OM10 cartridge, which is included with the turntable. Together, these components deliver extraordinary fast response and detailed microdynamics, making for an immersive listening experience. The tracking force and anti-skating on the tonearm are factory pre-adjusted, which makes the A1 plug & play-ready within a few seconds. This makes it perfect for vinyl beginners and experienced listeners alike as the sound quality is carried by all the audiophile features the A1 has on offer.

The A1 also features a carbon fiber reinforced headshell, which is super stable and rigid while keeping the weight super low. The composite material used in the headshell results in excellent internal damping of resonances, which helps to eliminate unwanted noise and distortion. The chassis of the A1 is also made of heavy wood, which avoids hollow spaces wherever possible, with just enough space to precision fit all the inner workings of the turntable. As a result, the chassis’ heavy mass reduces unwanted resonances to a minimum, providing a clean and clear sound.

The platter of the A1 is precision-balanced aluminum and it has a damping ring on the inside which adds weight and reduces resonances. The platter is then turned and precision balanced to receive its fine edges and lowest wow and flutter deviations. This ensures a smooth and stable rotation for the most accurate playback of your vinyl records.

The turntable also comes with a semi-balanced, low-capacitance RCA cable called Connect it E, which guarantees a perfect connection to your amplifier. This high-quality phono RCA cable has superior shielding that ensures the signal is not affected by interference. Additionally, the A1 has a built-in switchable preamp, which is perfect for those who don't have a phono preamplifier in their current HiFi setup. However, if you want to use another phono preamp, you can easily switch it off.

The Pro-Ject A1 Automatic Turntable also offers the convenience of being able to easily switch between 33 and 45 RPM speeds with the push of a single button. This allows you to listen to both your LPs and singles without the need to change the belt position.

In conclusion, the Pro-Ject A1 Automatic Turntable is a high-quality, handmade in Germany turntable that offers a fully automatic start/stop feature and 98% German-made components. It is perfect for vinyl beginners and experienced listeners alike as the sound quality is carried by all the audiophile features the A1 has on offer, making it the ultimate choice for music enthusiasts who want to enjoy their vinyl collection
