SETUP
1. Platter and drive belt installation
Please remove drive belt from accessories box and install it as shown in the following ilustration. Put
the felt mat on the top of the platter.
2. Cartridge installation, stylus exchange
* If you purchased this turntable in a package that included the cartridge, this has already been done
for you.
Install the cartridge into the aluminium headshell, using the appropriate hardware included with your
cartridge. All cartridges with half inch mounting holes can be fitted.
Connect the cartridge as indicated below:

For correct cartridge alignment, use the two-point cartridge alignment protractor provided with your
T1 accessories. If unfamiliar with two-point setup, please refer to your dealer.
A damaged or worn stylus may harm your record collection and should be replaced.
Please remove stylus protection before pulling the stylus from the cartridge and replace for a new one.
Stylus type is exchange for pre-mounted cartridge Ortofon OM 5e: Stylus OM 5e. If in doubt, consult your
local dealer or distributor.

3. Vertical Tracking Force setting (VTF)
* This setting is only neccessary when you decided to repalce your cartridge. For factory fitted
cartridge, VTF was perfectly pre-set already.
Before setting the Vertical Tracking Force, confirm the exact weight of your cartridge.
Pushing carefully, move the counterweight onto the rear end of the counterweight support rod as
shown in the illustration below. Place the stylus pressure gauge onto the platter. To set the required
VTF, lower the tonearm lift lever as indicated in the illustration and place the tip of the stylus exactly in
between the two points marked 15mN and 20mN.
If the stylus gauge becomes level, then the correct pressure has been achieved. However if the there is
insufficient or excessive pressure the gauge will either not move or tilt down.
To adjust the amount of pressure, carefully move the counterweight (11) along the support rod, until
the stylus pressure is sufficient to raise the pressure gauge to the level position. Moving the
counterweight (6) away from the cartridge will reduce pressure and towards will increase pressure.
Finally secure the counterweight (6) using hexagonal key provided.
4. Maintenance and cleaning
Your record player requires little or no regular maintenance. Remove dust with a slightly moistened
antistatic cloth. Never use a dry cloth because this will create static electricity which attract more dust!
Antistatic cleaning fluids are available at specialist stores but must be applied sparingly to avoid
damage to rubber parts. It is recommended to fit the needle cover before cleaning or maintenance is
carried out to avoid damage.
If the player is not used over a long period of time the drive belt can be removed to prevent unequal
stretching.

Changing replay speed
To play 45 r.p.m., put the drive belt over the larger diameter part of the motor pulley. To revert to 33
r.p.m. repeat the proceedings using the smaller step on the pulley.
Connection to the amplifier
The record player has a captive tonearm signal lead for connection to the amplifier. Use the Phono input on
your amplifier. Make sure that the phono input offers correct matching and amplification for the type of
cartridge used. Line inputs (such as CD, Tuner, Tape or Video) are not suitable.
Take care to connect the left and right channels correctly. The right channel is usually marked red, the
left channel black or white. Check the manual supplied with your amplifier for relevant information.
The earthing wire of the tonearm lead should be connected to the earth terminal on your amplifier (if
provided).
If your amplifier does not have an input suitable for phono cartridges you will require a separate
phono amplifier stage for MM or MC cartridges which is then connected between the record player and
a free line level input of the amplifier.

Switching on and off, changing replay speed
Pressing the ON/OFF switch starts the motor of the turntable. Pressing the speed selector selects
between 33 r.p.m. and 45 r.p.m. The selected speed is shown respectively by the flashing LED. When the
platter has attained full speed, the LEDs stop flashing.
Connection to the amplifier
The record player has gold plated female RCA phono sockets and possibility to choose between Phono and
LINE output. With LINE OUT on, you can use a line input (such as AUX, CD, Tuner, Tape or Video) on your
amplifier. With PHONO OUT on, you can use your own phono pre-amplifier (sometimes labelled gram, disc
or RIAA).
Take care to connect the left and right channels correctly. The right channel is usually marked red, the
left channel black or white. The earthing wire of the tonearm lead should be connected to the earth
terminal on your amplifier (if provided).

Connection to the amplifier
The record player has two possible outputs – Line OUT with integrated preamplifier and Phono OUT for
connection to the preamplifier. If you choose Phono OUT, than use the Phono input (sometimes
labelled gram, disc or RIAA) on your amplifier. Make sure that the phono input offers correct matching
and amplification for the type of cartridge used. If you choose Line OUT, than use the Line inputs (like
CD, Tuner, Tape or Video).
Take care about connecting the left and right channel correctly. The right channel is usually marked
red, the left channel black or white. Check the manual of your amplifier for relevant information. An
earthing wire may be connected to the screw terminal between the sockets if you encounter humming
problems.
Bluetooth pairing
The record player has Bluetooth output and transmit signal automatically when is connected to mains.
It is paired automatically with any device with Bluetooth receiver (such as Pro-Ject MaiA, MaiA DS,
Bluetooth Box s and Bluetooth Box E).
For pairing with other devices and portable speakers use the manual of the given product.
For restart of the Bluetooth transmitter, please turn OFF and ON the Bluetooth module by using the
switch. Restart is needed only when there is a change of the Bluetooth receiver.

Potential incorrect use and fault conditions
Pro-Ject turntables are manufactured to the highest standards and undergo strict quality controls
before leaving the factory. Faults that may possibly occur are not necessarily due to material or
production faults but can sometimes be caused by incorrect use or unfortunate circumstances. Therefore
the following list of common fault symptoms is included.
The platter doesn't turn although the unit is switched on:
The unit is not connected to the mains power supply.
No mains at the socket.
Drive belt is not fitted or has slipped off.
No signal through one or other channel or both channels:
No signal contact from the cartridge to the internal tonearm wiring or from that to the arm lead or
from that to the phono box or between that and the amplifier. This could be due to a faulty plug,
broken wire or solder joint or simply loose plug/socket connection.
Phono input not selected at amplifier.
Amplifier is not switched on.
Amplifier or speakers are defective or muted.
No connection to the loudspeakers.
Strong hum on phono input:
No earth connection from cartridge or arm or arm cable to amplifier, or earth loop.
Distorted or inconsistent sound from one or both channels:
Record player is connected to wrong input of amplifier, or MM/MC switch incorrectly set.
Needle or cantilever damaged.
Wrong r.p.m., drive belt overstretched or dirty, platter bearing without oil, dirty or damaged
Service
Should you encounter a problem which you are not able to alleviate or identify despite the above
information, please contact your dealer for further advice. Only when the problem cannot be resolved
there should the unit be sent to the responsible distributor in your country.
Guarantee repairs will only be affected if the unit is returned correctly packaged. For this reason we
recommend keeping the original packaging.
Never return a record player without making sure that is it safely disassembled and correctly packaged
in the original packaging according to the diagrams on the last page of this user guide. Please remove
these parts and pack them separately: lid, counterweight, anti-skating weight and belt.
Fit the cartridge protection cap and the transport lock for the tonearm tube, prior to carefully packaging
the record player.
