An award-winning turntable now with Bluetooth connectivity – the Project Essential III BT is a flexible performer.

Bluetooth connectivity

Bluetooth connectivity means that you can connect up to your choice of Bluetooth speaker or Bluetooth-equipped Hi-Fi, wirelessly. Simply pair the turntable with your speaker and enjoy fuss-free connectivity up to a range of around 10m.

Phono pre-amp, built-in
Another advantage the BT model has over the standard Essential III is the built-in phono pre-amp. This means that when you’re using a wired connection, you can hook up to just about any Hi-Fi with an AUX input. If you’d prefer to use the phono pre-amp built into your existing amp then that’s fine, too, as the Essential III’s output can be switched to standard level.

Engineered for sound
Just like the standard version, the Pro-Ject Essential 3 BT 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 BT a remarkable precision of sound for its price.

Single piece aluminium tonearm
Continuing its hi-fi credentials, the Pro-Ject Essential III BT 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 tonearm is fitted with sapphire bearings.

Ortofon OM10 fitted
Another great feature is the standard fitment of an Ortofon OM10 cartridge. This higher spec cartridge uses a finer stylus to get deeper into the groove, giving you a broader sound and more detail.

Award-winning sound quality made more accessible than ever. The Project Essential III BT gives you the best of all worlds.

Also available in Red and White.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pro-Ject Essential III Turntable Bought this a week or so ago. Quick delivery. Easy set up and operation. Lovely sound quality too.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed I bought this turntable several months ago and though I don’t listen to it daily when I do it disappoints. It looks stunning, gloss black very nice but have to say that’s where the positive ends for me. There is a back ground noise from the platter mechanism which can be heard when listening to quieter tracks. The main problems I have are the belt and anti-skid weight. The slightest movement seems to dislodge the belt and I find it a pain to get back on. Then there is the antiskate weight. When I first set up the turntable it wouldn’t stay on. I even contacted RS and they asked me to return the device however I decided to follow some internet ‘tips’ and use a piece of blue tack. I’ve just lately noticed the platter stutters when starting up now. Safe to say this has been a disappointing purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks good and great sound Looks good although I think it looks better without the plastic cover. Easy to set up and found it easy to pair using bluetooth

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy set up and great sound. I bought this a week ago and it's been in constant use. Really easy to set up with clear instructions inside the box. The sound is great through a decent bluetooth speaker. The only slight drawback is the weight of the unit itself - it's very light and can easily be moved. Just be careful when you lift the lid.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound with bluetooth! I purchased the Pro-ject Essential III 2 weeks I have to say I am very impressed with the quality of the sound for the price. I can connect it directly to my bluetooth head phones or my JBL bluetooth speakers and it works like a dream! The turntable is hands but I enjoy that aspect too! I am having great fun playing my vinyl records which have not seen the light of day for several years. I am one very satisfied customer. Diego I would like to thank you for your expert advice and support:-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent sound I hadn't listened to my vinyl collection for several years. Wow, I'm so pleased that I bought the Project Essential III. My vinyl now sounds amazing. The Project brings out sounds that I wasn't previously aware of and I now prefer listening to vinyl rather than CDs or streamed music.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty easy to set up and sounds good Bought to bring life back to our neglected vinyl collection. We had it unboxed and up and running within half an hour. Sound quality is good. Only two minor glitches to report: * speed change key was missing from the package * initially the Bluetooth audio level was very low. Not clear why this was or why switching to another BT audio source and back fixed it, but it did...
