Pro-Ject Essential Turntable
Pro-Ject's Lowest Priced Turntable Ever
Pro-Ject’s Essential turntable is an ideal entry point to the world of demanding audio reproduction. Featuring a Pro-Ject 8.6 UniPivot tonearm factory fitted with an Ortofon OM 3E moving magnet phono cartridge, the Essential delivers excellent sound quality at an unbeatable price. A resonance-optimized MDF plinth with three-point rubber feet and MDF platter with felt mat eliminate unwanted vibration. A silent synchronous motor with a two-step pulley drives the platter’s outside edge via a precision silicon belt.
"It doesn't matter whether you listen to REM's Automatic for the People or The Sorcerer's Apprentice by Dukas, this little Pro-ject delivers the sound with infectious enthusiasm."
The Essential incorporates a chrome plated stainless steel axle that rests on a polished steel bearing in a bronze housing for minimal wow-and-flutter and speed accuracy. A single-piece fixed headshell 8.6” tonearm features hardened stainless steel bearings and rigid aluminum tube to provide superb tracking and resonance reduction, and enables accurate adjustment of cartridge azimuth with ease. A fixed RCA interconnect cable and dust cover are included.
