At the beginning of the tidal wave of digital audio led by the compact disc, Heinz Lichtenegger founded Pro-Ject Audio. Lichtenegger's goal was to bring hi-fi audio to the masses, and the company's first turntable, Pro-Ject 1, became a cult audiophile staple. Pro-Ject's commitment to impeccable sound is reflected in its selection of top-shelf components, meticulous craftsmanship, and forward-thinking design. The entire Pro-Ject Audio lineup is manufactured in Europe to exacting standards, from the entry-level T1 to the ultra audiophile-grade Signature 12. Alongside its signature turntables, Pro-Ject Audio offers a line of preamps, power amps, speakers, and headphones for end-to-end sound reproduction of the highest caliber.
