High-End Turntables.


There's A Perfect Turntable for You.

For nearly 30 years, Fine Sounds Americas has brought the finest audio products to North America from around the globe, which includes Pro-Ject Audio and their high-end turntables.

Fine Sounds Americas’ relationship with Pro-Ject Audio started in 1993 when Heinz Lichtenegger, CEO of Pro-Ject Audio Systems, recognized that they would be instrumental in establishing his European-proven brand here in the US. This relationship has propelled Pro-Ject to become one of the most venerated brands in affordable high-end audio today.



Pro-Ject X8 Evolution Turntable

The X8 is Pro-Ject's most affordable mass-loaded turntable yet. Positioned neatly between the X2 and Xtension 9, the X8 adopts and breaks down its bigger siblings' features to make mass-loaded high-end design principles as accessible as never before.

Massive 5.1KG Platter

The X8 offers a heavy, TPE damped mass-loaded platter precision lathed from a single aluminium block and finely balanced. On the Xtension 9 and 10 you cannot really play around with using different mats due to the glued on vinyl top. The X8 comes with a standard felt mat, also allowing you to experiment with different material mats in the future and tailor the sound to your taste.

Pro-Ject X8 Evo - $2,499


Pro-Ject X2 Turntable

Audiophile Turntable with Composite Tonearm & Acrylic Platter

This turntable design, with Pro-Ject's underlying core philosophy and dedication to quality music performance, has all the high-end aspects built in that really take vinyl listening to the ultimate heights. But as is the way in hifi many people still wanted more. They were willing to invest more, because this is how much they fell in love with their newfound passion. It is hard to improve on such a well-performing turntable, but there are ways to do it. It was not time to reinvent the wheel, because the core engineering already was and still is ideal.

Pro-Ject X2 - $1,699


Pro-Ject Classic Evo Turntable

Designed to take the performance of the award-winning Classic Series to a new level, Pro-Ject’s ‘The Classic EVO’ adds advanced technology from their best turntables to an iconic, vintage-inspired design. The two-piece plinth may bring back memories of turntables of yore, but make no mistake – under the hood it’s a thoroughly modern machine. Where suspended turntables of years past used fussy springs to reduce vibration, The Classic EVO uses TPE bushings (thermoplastic elastomer) to isolate the motor and tonearm. The tonearm also got the royal treatment with a Sumiko Moonstone MM cartridge. The Classic EVO features a 9″ arm with the bearings used in our 9, 10 and 12cc Evolution tonearms for smooth, precise tracking of your records. The platter (internally damped) and sub-platter are made from CNC-machined aluminum to provide more rotational mass resulting in impeccable vibration resistance and enhanced speed stability.

Pro-Ject X1 Turntable

The Pro-Ject X1 is based on the simplicity of the vintage P1 by Pro-Ject and has been improved in every aspect thanks to modern materials and sophisticated new production methods. A sophisticated DC/AC generator board combined with the convenient speed control board delivers clean and stable power to the quietly-running motor. The motor is decoupled from the plinth via a TPE motor suspension system that isolates the motor and quells vibration. X1’s motor drives the massive, non-resonant 1.5kg satinized acrylic platter via a sub-platter drive system and a premium-grade main bearing for liquid-smooth rotation. The X1 incorporates carbon/aluminum composite tonearm. This 8.6” tonearm design is incredibly rigid with remarkable resistance to external interference. The Pro-Ject factory installs and aligns the splendid Sumiko Olympia cartridge simplifying the setup process. In action, Olympia provides superb tracking as well as a very musical and engaging presentation.

Pro-Ject X1 - $1,200

Pro-Ject Debut Pro

Debut PRO Keeps Things PRO-fessional

Borrowed from the audiophile-grade X1 & X2 turntables, the Pro-Ject Debut PRO implements the tried and true one-piece carbon-fiber-wrapped aluminum armtube. This heightens rigidity and mass allowing it to more effectively control more massive phono cartridges at this effective arm length. The composite carbon-fiber tonearm is also more effective at damping armtube resonance, allowing the signal to pass through unencumbered. PRO features a sophisticated tonearm bearing block made of nickel-plated aluminum. The icing is the tonearm collar, yielding the first Debut model to offer adjustment of vertical tracking angle. Azimuth is also readily adjustable. Listeners can fine-tune the full range of cartridge adjustment parameters to optimize the sound quality of the factory installed Sumiko Rainier MM phono cartridge.

Pro-Ject Debut Pro - $999

Pro-Ject Debut Carbon EVO Turntable

The new Debut Carbon EVO represents the epitome of Pro-Ject’s philosophy: high performance, clean aesthetics, and superb value. The elegant, simple aesthetic is unmarred by gimmicky lights, sliders, and buttons. It is a pure, high-performance turntable.

Vinyl playback starts with the cartridge, converting what’s in the three-dimensional record groove to an electrical signal. The Sumiko Rainier MM phono cartridge combines superb trackability with uncanny accuracy and clarity without sacrificing smoothness.

The Debut Carbon EVO uses Pro-Ject's proven 12” steel platter, now lined around the outer edge (bottom side) with an anti-resonant thermo-plastic elastomer (TPE). The result is a heavier platter with minimal noise over an expertly engineered main bearing and sub-platter.

Pro-Ject Debut Carbon EVO - $599

Pro-Ject Phono Preamps

Phono preamps (phono stages) make a bigger difference than most listeners realize. Due to the delicate nature of the phono signal, it needs to be treated just-so for optimal sound quality. Pro-Ject specializes in all things 'phono' and packs as much value as possible into each model. Whether you're running a budget moving magnet or an audiophile moving coil phono cartridge, Pro-Ject has you covered.
