Pro-Ject 1 Xpression III Classic TurnTables

1 Xpression III Classic

A quiet running AC motor with a two-step pulley drives the hub and platter via a flat-ground belt. The medium density fibre plinth stands on three height-adjustable rubber-damped aluminium cones. The motor is decoupled from the plinth to reduce vibration transmission. The resonance-optimised platter is a sandwich construction utilising the hub, a fine-balanced aluminium platter and a cork mat (a standard felt mat is supplied also). The platter's low-tolerance chrome-plated stainless-steel axle runs on a polished ball bearing in a brass bearing housing.

Verry good turntable for the price.To me,the new platter upgrade helps avoiding some bad vibrations and is heavyer than the acrylic one.Coupled with the Pro-Ject Leather-It mat,it gives exellent results(stunning look included!)I bourth a Ortofon 2M bronse and a P-J speed-boxII.The TT is connected to the LP3 phono preamp from Moon (a little Sim Audio but big sound and dark back ground) and the sound is clear,open,tridimentional with a lot of energy .


Befor I make the move one this one,I had a use Rega P3-24 with a Ortofon Salsa(MC) that sounded pretty good too but the fit (of the Pro-Ject)and finish looks better and the bilth quality too! Really you'll say?Well...
Yes!
I know the RB301 tonearme is a verry good one but it looks plastish.(Look for the arm base and the anti-skating.The hobe is better machined on the P-J and the rega motor has been stiked to the plinth!They say it's to keep bad vibrations away!Humm...Wheird that I can see the pully going up and down and vibrate trough the plinth!The feets are and looks better on the P-J than the Rega that is only holding by a little screw.

The Rega P3-24 is a good LP player but when you think about the price you pay for it,I'd rather bye the 1XpressionIII classic with a higher grade cartrige and the speed boxII for a little less mony.

Oh! And it has VTA and asimut ajustment also...Good thinking!
