With a built-in Pro-Ject designed, high-quality MM phono stage and an electronic speed switch between 33 and 45 RPM, the T1 Phono SB is the perfect turntable for anyone starting their journey into vinyl.
The T1 Phono SB also ships with a RCA to 3.5mm jack adapter in the box. Making it perfect connecting directly to a speaker with an AUX input.
Hand-made in Europe
The Pro-Ject T1 Phono SB is entirely manufactured in Europe, from the smallest component to the plinth and tonearm, setting this turntable apart from other mass-produced competitors. With such close eyes on the production of this turntable, Pro-Ject is able to deliver a turntable with truly astounding build quality, so you’re guaranteed an exceptional analog experience.
Push-button speed control
To make it as easy as possible for customers to get started with the Pro-Ject T1 Phono SB an electronic speed control is integrated into the turntable - activated with a simple switch on the front-left of the plinth. This allows easy switching between the two most common speed formats, 33 and 45 RPM.
Phonostage on board
The Pro-Ject T1 Phono SB includes an on-board switchable moving magnet phono stage. This means that the turntable is ready-to-go out of the box, but also has the flexibility for the customer to upgrade their phono stage in the future. This could be a separate phonostage, or an in-built phono in their existing amplifier.
Heavy glass platter & stylish plinth
The Pro-Ject T1 Phono SB is supplied with a heavy, low-resonance glass platter. A significant upgrade from plastic or lightweight steel alternatives, this new platter both looks stylish & provides the consistent speed that your vinyl needs to sound its best. The plinth supporting the Pro-Ject T1 Phono SB is created using precision CNC routing, meaning there are no hollow spaces, as well as no plastic pieces, commonly found in entry-level turntables, resulting in avoidance of unwanted vibrations.
The Pro-Ject T1 Phono SB Turntable is perfect for those getting into vinyl records for the first time or those returning to them after rediscovering their old collections. You will struggle to find another unit that is as simple to set up and use while sounding this good.

Back in 1958, at the age of only 24, Alex Encel set about building locally-made stereo systems for Australians. Over half a century has passed since Alex built his first pair of speakers by hand here in Melbourne, and now that tradition continues with a colourful range of bookshelf speakers: Gelati.
"This new speaker delivers a colourful, tutti-frutti range of sound that doesn't demand expensive auxiliary components for good results. It represents excellent value for money, punches well above its price and should definitely be high up your audition shortlist."
Encel Gelati are made in a number of uniquely flavoured lacquer and woodgrain cabinets like Birch Black, Vanilla, Caramel Walnut, and Pistachio.
They’re adaptable to the surrounds of your listening space, with 12 delicious magnetic grilles on offer in shades like Eucalyptus Green, Ocean Blue, Lemon Yellow and Coffee Brown. Swapping them out takes seconds, allowing you to choose and change your speakers' appearance. Gelati don't come with grilles as standard, allowing you to personalise their look.
Designed and voiced in Melbourne, Encel Gelati serve a svelte, engaging tone that performs confidently across a range of genres. Whether you're listening on vinyl, CD, or streaming, they promise a totally absorbing musical experience. Gelati are packaged with a minimum of disposable materials and manuals, with instructions and information available online at encel.com.au/gelati.
A defining trait of the Encel brand is artistic collaboration, with Melbourne-based illustrator Alice Oehr designing the Gelati’s packaging. And of course, Gelati are manufactured with sturdy, durable materials like MDF and kevlar, meaning their gift of great music will continue for years down the line.
Without a conductor, an orchestra is a room of unguided elements, struggling to find cohesion with one another. All of them individually brilliant, but without a guide to give them direction, to make the collective into one breathtaking whole. A good quality turntable and speakers both have the capacity to render music with majesty and emotion, though without an amplifier to process the turntable’s signal and provide the speakers with an electrical current infused with all that information, they both lie dormant.
An amplifier is the processing centre and the drive behind a great hi-fi system. It takes an input signal, imparts just the right amount of clean power, then pushes it out to the speakers, causing their drivers to vibrate and fill your room with wonderful music. If a turntable or CD player’s signal were played directly through your speakers you’d barely hear a thing. A quality amplifier significantly boosts the precious information from these source components without degrading or distorting it. In essence, an amplifier is the Brains that brings everything to life and paints all the rich, vivid detail.
Brains is an integrated amplifier equipped with an impressive range of inputs, the perfect focal point around which to build your sound system. You could be diving into vinyl for the first time, streaming music from your phone, digging out your old CD collection, or hooking up your TV for stirring cinematic sound. It has all those bases covered, and is housed in a beautifully minimalist chassis that slides comfortably into any room’s unique aesthetic. You can also enjoy some one-on-one time with your music with the headphone output, excellent for late night listening.
Brains is made from durable materials, chosen for their sturdy, robust qualities. With so many modern audio products designed to be upgraded or replaced within a few years, its beautiful, timeless looks and longevity are a breath of fresh air. Every aspect of the componentry is repairable, meaning it’ll continue bringing joyful sound into your life for as long as it’s loved, a wonderful family heirloom to deliver music for generations ahead.
Simple bass and treble controls allow you to shape your sound as you like, enriching music, films and games with low-end thunder or adding a touch of extra sparkle and clarity. Tone controls give the benefit of allowing you to adapt your sound to your specific listening conditions. Smaller speakers in a large room? Give the bass dial a generous spin. Music sounding a little flat in a smaller carpeted space? Get that treble singing. Brains hands you full control of your sound.
Input selection and volume can be adjusted from afar with the remote control, which is bundled free of charge at launch.
Brains boasts a high-current, low-noise transformer, engineered to eliminate unwanted physical vibrations and electrical interference. Think of it as the bridge between the power from the wall socket and the delicate internal circuitry of an amplifier. It’s absolutely essential that this circuitry is fed with clean power, free of electronic noise, and that’s precisely what the transformer does. Under the hood you’ll also find Class A/B amplification. Bluetooth speakers and wireless headphones use what’s called Class D amplification. It’s more efficient, and certainly fits into smaller spaces, but the organic, faithful, vividly rendered sound of Class A/B can’t be imitated or replaced. The resulting sound that’s created by these elements is nothing short of breathtaking.
The main chassis is custom-engineered from steel with special tooling for the solid aluminium front panel, and finished with a fine sand-blast to accentuate its elegant lines. Volume is controlled entirely in the analog domain, eliminating the introduction of digital artefacts.
Brains is available in black or white finishes with inverted shading for the control dials and input selectors. Design work was undertaken in Melbourne, with dozens of iterations experimented with and refined before arriving at the finished product. Every aspect of the engineering and hardware have been chosen with beautiful, natural sound at front of mind. Encel has been bringing wonderful sound to Australian living rooms for over 60 years, and here that legacy continues boldly.
Brains is covered by a three year manufacturer’s warranty.
