"The Elemental is yet another top-class budget deck from Pro-Ject. It's a fine first step on the vinyl ladder." What Hi-Fi Sound & Vision magazine. 5-Star review.

Engineered for superior sound

Designed to take on the more usual 'plastic' designs at this price, the Pro-Ject Elemental has the same basic engineering values of its more expensive designs. So for the base and platter, Pro-Ject uses high density MDF. This gives increased mass and better damping properties, both of which are ideal for providing lower distortion. A further advantage of the high mass platter is that it provides a more consistent speed, helping both pitch and timing consistency.

Plug 'n' play
Despite offering genuine hi-fi sound, the Elemental has been designed to be as unintimidating as possible. 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 complex adjustments.

A style statement
As you'd expect from the makers of some of the coolest turntables in the business, the Pro-Ject Elemental destroys the opposition in terms of style just as much as it does with sound. The stripped down aesthetic mirrors the minimalist look of their more expensive turntables and comes with a choice of coloured trim.

True hi-fi quality, style and superb value are simply elemental in making this a class-leading turntable.

We'll happily come to you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quality prodct, but be aware of extras. The initial outlay of £175.00 promised very good value for a well engineered deck. This initial promise was a little dented when it was discovered that a pre-amp was required (for £60.00). and protection of the rather exposed arm and deck meant another outlay of £60 00 for a protective cover. But listening to the beautiful sounds produced makes my penny pinching attitude seem a little hyper-critical.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A fab deck for the money. Lovely depth of sound and detail. Big issue is the motor hum.! A great sounding product. Nice simplistic ergonomic design, which looks good. Lovely depth of sound and detail. I however cannot live with the hum from the motor. The only way to get rid of the motor hum is to decouple the motor from the plinth. In my view, if Pro-ject sorted the issue with the motor and increased the price of the product to circa £200. These things would sell like hot cakes not just to audiophiles like me, but to Joe public as well. I'm in the process of returning my Pro-ject deck to Richer Sounds and am going to purchase the new RP2.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality sound Very basic it in it's operation - no auto start or stop - you have to queue the stylus yourself - but hey, so what & less parts to go wrong (we hope). Looks different & looks great, even better - sounds great through my amp & speakers. Love it. Only real gripe is why didn't they put a groove around the turntable to hold the belt a bit more securely & make fitting easier. Defo a thumbs up for the vinyl enthusiast.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Spot on The Elemental looks brilliant - the design definitely sets it apart from almost every other budget turntable and the sound quality is great. Everything you need to get going is included in the box too, can't really ask for more at the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Minimalist marvel - grass roots music once again! I did a lot of research to buy a quality turntable. I was put off by the USB brigade, all plastic and cheap-feeling. I wanted something that would do my albums justice after so long in the attic. I am thrilled to say that this little gem is just what I was looking for. It is teamed through a Cambridge Audio 551p phono amp (from RS) to a Technics HD51 mini hifi I got through a well-known auction site. Wow! The record deck is a bit of art in itself and comes virtually ready to roll. So glad it's not surrounded by scratchable plastic casing. A simple switch, no fuss smooth platter - just as bare bones as a record player can get. Takes up little more space than an LP. Great bit of kit for the price... and it's even a pleasure to have to get up every 20 minutes to change records!
