Project Essential Turntable

Sorry, This product is no longer available



Stripped back to the basics but not compromising on anything that would degrade sound quality, the Project Essential Turntable is a superb entry level turntable to help you enjoy your records to the full. Featuring a low noise AC motor with a silicone drive belt running around the circumference of the MDF platter, the Turntable also has a low resonance MDF plinth with isolation and leveling feet. Both 33 and 45rpm speeds can be set by using the two step pulley manually, whilst the aluminium unipivot arm allows the cartridge to track records with ease. Pre-fitted with an Ortofon OM3E cartridge, the Project Essential Turntable is ready to plug and play into a standard moving magnet phono amplifier input.
