” A solid, easy-to-use deck that reaffirms Pro-Ject’s supremacy in the budget market.” ‘What Hi-Fi? magazine’. 5-star review. Tested at £190.

A ‘proper’ turntable engineered for the best sound

Putting engineering excellence above ‘bells and whistles’, the Pro-Ject Primary is designed for the best sound quality at its price. The deck has a low vibration, DC motor making it quiet and 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 its class-leading sound quality.

Plug 'n' play
Despite offering genuine hi-fi sound, the Primary 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.

Factory-fitted Ortofon cartridge
This deck comes pre-fitted with a top quality Ortofon OM5e cartridge. Usually valued at over £50 on its own, it's a fantastic bonus to have this bundled in with the turntable. Its elliptical shaped stylus provides a balanced and distortion-free sound that's also kind to your records in terms of its low wear rate.

Simple is best
In a classic case of form following function, the Project Primary offers effortless style through its pared down minimalism. To emphasize the style statement, you can also order the Primary in matte white as well as the more traditional black.

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

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great result I bought this turntable to replace an old Technics which had finally given up - after reading many reviews I plumped for the Project Primary - it could not have worked out better - brilliant sound when coupled with my Denon amp and Monitor Audio speakers. Thanks to Andy at Leicester RS, very patient and helpful

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple Set-Up I've had this turntable for a couple of weeks now It was bought to compliment an extensive Sonos system. Which it does perfectly. Very easy to setup. It was working within 15 minutes of receiving it from my gtiendly DPD driver. Great to be able to play those decades old lps and singles again. Nostalgia lives again. Wonderful to be able so simply to relive my halcyon days once more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality turntable Bought to replace my Ion turntable and what a jump in quality. Excellent sound and very easy to connect to my amp. Getting used to the band drive took a few goes, as it's quite easy to pull it off when removing an L.P. A minor issue though considering the rest of the package. The 6 year warranty is spot on as well.
