"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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Style and Substance Stylish and superbly engineered, this turntable screams quality from all angles. It looks good (or at least different) and sounds even better (depending on the rest of your set-up of course). Once you get the belt fitted - set aside some time for this, and maybe get another pair of hands to help - plug in and play and you're away! Before taking the plunge on this model, I admit I did a lot of dithering. I really wish I'd taken the initiative sooner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound for little cost Bought the project elemental after being recommended in store sound quality is spot on for price of item plus love the fact it's different looking really stands out from the normal turntables set up out of box take 5 minutes well impressed

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply amazing I was a little sceptical about this turntable when I purchased it, due mainly on it's looks. How wrong was I. For the price, this turntable is nothing less than amazing. Every album I have played on this since I bought it has sounded truly amazing. The clarity of sound is second to none, this turntable will give some of the big names a run for their money. I would recommend this to anyone looking to purchase their first turntable, or anyone who is looking to upgrade.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good deck, but not without its design issues and I had a faulty cartridge Nice, but issues; my deck had its cartridge weight set incorrectly out of the box; records skipped. Checked with scales; counterbalance was set to half recommend value! Fortunately I knew how to rectify that, but many people wouldn't and existing owners may be damaging their collection or not hearing the deck at its best due to an incorrect tracking force. As in other reviews; that belt! Perhaps more of an issue for me because I was approaching the deck from the front rather than above as many would (unit placed on a middle shelf), but once you so much as touch the belt, off it pings and you can spend a frustration filled few minutes trying to get it back on. The spindle has been machined slightly too big; can be really difficult to get records on an off. Eventually exchanged unit for a Denon; too many issues and my cartridge was also faulty- was scraping the playing surface of most records. RS customer service excellent though in sorting out the exchange.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great starter turntable - good quality & excellent value for money Having had a bit of a disaster with a previous purchase (different brand/shop) as a starter turntable for my son, we decided to go to Richer Sounds and do it properly! We weren't disappointed. After excellent advice from the salesman, we went for the Project Elemental, and we're really pleased. It's a minimalist, unusual design and has a very solid feel unlike so many others in that price range. And - probably the most important thing - it's amazing sound quality. The only slight criticism is that the turntable is exactly the same size as a record, so when removing a disc, one has to be careful not to pick up the belt at the same time as the record. A slight size differential, or seating the belt into a groove in the turntable might have avoided this issue. The 'On/Off' switch is also slightly hidden so can be a bit fiddly to turn on and off. Having said all that, one gets quickly used to the quirks so it's not a huge issue. Overall I'd totally recommend this product
