”A great first turntable.” ’What Hi-Fi?’ 2020 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 5 out of 5 by from Excellent turntable I brought this a few weeks ago I did take my time going though loads of reviews, but this one kept cropping up time and time again. Having gotten this and listened to hours of music I can understand why. I’ve only got this playing through my Denon avr but sounds better than anything I’ve streamed or played on cd. All I need to do now is get it’s own dedicated amp and speakers to release its full potential. As an added bonus even my wife who wasn’t to sure about this purchase is impressed with it, admittedly it helps that it’s a good looking unit. I would recommend this to anyone thinking of getting a turntable I would recommend this as you won’t go wrong especially when it’s got a six year warranty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous looking, minimalist, amazing sound I'm no expert really however the sound that this generates through my system is amazing. I'm hearing new elements of music which I've been listening to for years! Don't forget to get the phono box however.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value Excellent sound for the price, looks good too. As other reviewers have said, the belt can be fiddly to fit. You have to be careful when lifting a record off the platter as it's easy to catch the belt with a finger and dislodge it if you're not careful.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Underwhelmed It's not good value for money, The "belt" is some irritating external bit of plastic that pulls round the wheel, comes off easily and is a pain to put back on. It also is lacking an auto-stop feature, which has been supplied as standard from the cheapest of record players for decades.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Super fast delivery I bought this to replace my old pro-jest turntable whilst it sounds so much better I was not aware about the external belt which comes off very easily and is awkward to put back. I ordered on the Saturday and they tried to deliver Monday super fast for a standard service!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reasonable price for a great turntable Bought this a few days ago, very impressed so far with the quality of sound. The belt is slightly tricky to fit, but once it's on it stays on!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bringing out the best in my old LPs The Pro-Ject Primary E is basic and simple to use while also looking stylish. More importantly, it has transformed my experience listening to my old LPs. It has replaced a trusty 30 year old Dual CS505 and suddenly I can hear more detail. There is no noticeable wow and flutter. The stylus tracks better through scratches. It was also very simple to set up. So I am very happy that I've made the switch.
