”A great first turntable.” ’What Hi-Fi?’ 2019 award-winner.

Focused on sound quality. Pure and simple

Putting engineering excellence above ‘bells and whistles’, the Pro-Ject Primary E is designed for the best sound quality at its price. The deck features a high quality 230 volt motor for smooth running. The main bearing is made from stainless steel and runs within a Teflon-coated bronze bushing. This type of engineering quality is usually reserved for much more expensive decks and helps give the Primary E its class-leading sound quality.

A winner made better
Already a multi-award-winner, the Primary E now uses a totally revised motor for purer sound. Out go the old plug-based power supply and 9v motor to be replaced by a superior, directly connected 230v motor previously used in higher spec Project decks. Without an external power supply and the necessary processing, the new Primary E offers a low distortion, and extremely stable sound.

Easy set-up
Despite offering genuine hi-fi sound, the Primary E is designed for ease of use. From unboxing, all that's needed is for the platter to be placed on the bearing, the belt attached, the stylus guard removed and you're good to play. Both cartridge and counter weight are already fixed so there's no need for complicated adjustments.

Factory-fitted Ortofon cartridge
This deck comes pre-fitted with a top-brand Ortofon OM 1S cartridge. Giving smooth, natural sound quality, the OM 1S tracks smoothly and sounds musical. As part of the Optimum Match (OM) range, the stylus is upgradable to 5, 10, 20, 30 and 40 models, giving plenty of scope for future upgrading.

Simple is best
In a classic case of form following function, the Project Primary E offers effortless style through its pared down minimalism. Unlike like some, though, it’s not so pared back that it doesn’t feature a lid – a smart acrylic lid is standard with the Primary E.

The ideal starter turntable, the Project Primary E is still the perfect introduction to vinyl seduction.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great looking turntable, Great sound Being new to modern turntables was quite frustrated at having to get a pre amp but was well worth it the sound is great, although do miss the old direct drive turntables

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pro-ject e top class Bought this with the pro-ject pre amp and couldnt be happier. Sounds amazing, and is the best looking turntable on the market, so sleek. Love how you can see the band that rotates the platter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pro-ject Primary E I’d been wanting to pick one of these up as my dad has one in his stack - fantastic piece of equipment. Barely any hum and so easy to use. Highly recommended entry-level turntable.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from PLUG & PLAY? NO ITS NOT! Looks beautiful. Good pre-fitted cartridge & installed tonearm. Excellent so far. But how is it entry-level plug & play when the belt comes off so easily, and I lose several minutes trying to get it back on? It's aimed at people new to the audiophile world, but they're not used to this palaver, and wont put up with it. Neither will I. Will replace ASAP.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound, great value Only had the deck for a few weeks but the sound quality from my old vinyl is fantastic. It has brought new life to my collection. The build quality is superb compared to similar priced models on the market. Recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quality budget turntable. I have owned this turntable for a few weeks now and I think it is good value for money. It's from a reputable manufacturer, albeit their budget range, but build quality is good, and so is the sound quality. This has no features to speak of, no auto start stop, it's all done manually, which means there's less stuff to go wrong. I would recommend to anyone looking for a good quality budget turntable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Simple turntable The turntable is simple to set up with an elegant appearance. With no music playing I can hear the motor if I am standing close to the turntable. Adjusting the weight of the arm is a little bit tricky for a novice.
