A GENUINE HI-FI TURNTABLE AT AN AFFORDABLE PRICE
Unlike many other turntables around this price, the Pro-Ject Essential 2 has all the elements of a proper hi-fi turntable - just at a lower price. Starting with the deck itself, a new motor control makes the Essential 2 quieter and minimises unwanted vibrations. The main bearing is made from stainless steel and runs within a bronze bushing with Teflon coating. This type of build integrity is usually reserved for much more expensive designs and gives the Essential 2 a precison of sound that's a class above.
SINGLE PIECE, ALUMINIUM TONEARM
Continuing its hi-fi credentials, the Pro-Ject Essential II is supplied with a good quality tonearm. Unlike inferior plastic and steel versions, the Essential's tonearm is made from a single piece of aluminium, making it both light and rigid. The more rigid the more precisely it tracks, making listening to your records a more involving experience. For long-lasting quality, the tonearm is fitted with sapphire bearings.
FACTORY FITTED ORTOFON OM5E CARTRIDGE
The final flourish to this irresistible turntable is the inclusion of an Ortofon OM5e cartridge. Usually valued at over £50 on its own, it's a fantastic bonus to have this bundled in with the turntable. With its elliptical shaped stylus, it provides a balanced and distortion-free sound that's also kind to your records in terms of its low wear rate.
A DESIGN CLASSIC
In a classic case of form following function, the Project Essential 2 offers effortless style through its pared down minimalism. To emphasize the style statement, you can now order the Essential 2 in red or white as well as the more traditional black.
Essential in both name and nature, the Pro-Ject Essential 2 has everything you need to enjoy your records.
