"Another excellent Pro-Ject turntable with a tempting upgrade option." 'What Hi-Fi? Sound & Vision magazine'. 5-star review. Tested at £240

The perfect turntable for audiophiles on a budget

Putting engineering quality above frills, the Project Essential III is perfect for those that enjoy their music above all else. With a specification that includes isolation feet, a low vibration motor with DC power supply and a quality Ortofon cartridge, the Essential III offers much more than just the basics and gives a class-leading sound.

Engineered for sound
Unlike many other turntables around this price, the Pro-Ject Essential 3 has all the elements of a proper hi-fi turntable - just at a lower price. The low vibration DC motor gives stable speed for accurate pitch and timing. The main bearing is made from stainless steel and runs within a bronze bushing with a Teflon coating. This type of build integrity is usually reserved for much more expensive designs and gives the Essential 3 a remarkable precision of sound for its price.

Single piece aluminium tonearm

Continuing its hi-fi credentials, the Pro-Ject Essential III is supplied with a good quality tonearm. Made from a single piece of aluminium, it's 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 tone-arm is fitted with sapphire bearings.

Cartridge upgraded to Ortofon OM10
Another great new upgrade with the version 3 of the Essential is an Ortofon OM10 cartridge. Replacing the previous OM5 model, the higher spec cartridge uses a finer stylus to get deeper into the groove, giving you a broader sound and more detail.

More impressive than ever, the Project Essential III is the 'go to' turntable at its price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value for money Bought this on advise from the store. Good model /value for money. The anti-skate weight is a bit fiddly to set up and doesn't take much to get dislodged. Other than that a good purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful clear sound I was looking for a replacement for my sadly dead record deck and the project essential 111 was suggested as an upgrade replacement. I've been totally blown away by the clarity and precision of sound - couldn't have had a better recommendation - utterly amazing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing quality at a reasonable price Really struggled to decide on which turntable to buy..... and after reading hundreds of reviews I ended up with a Pro-Ject Essential III..... and what a cracker it is !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is Happening After a succession of creppy cheap record players, I finally saved up and got something better and this is it. Easy to set up; there are good videos on richer sounds website if you need them. I have it connected to a little Onkyo system and its great. It does need a pre-amp though, so don't forget to buy that too. AND... don't forget to turn off the switch once you finish playing!! Looks very nice, shiny, minimal, black. . I am happy and there is less swearing in the house nowadays!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Service We bought this at 4.30 pm on Boxing Day. We rushed in before the store closed and the staff were so helpful. The turntable is fabulous and allowed my husband to play his Christmas gift from his son right away!
