”The Primary E remains a great entry level turntable.” ’What Hi-Fi?’ 2023 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 No frills but great sound Excellent value for money. No frills, great sound though. Prefect starter turntable

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Project Primary E Good entry level turntable linked to Marrantz PM7000N and Triangle B03 speakers gives a great quality sound especially at the price. The belt drive is a little fiddly and can be easily removed when picking a disc off the turntable unless care is taken.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No frills - great sound - great price! Easy to setup as most of the work is done before leaving the factory. Nice build quality and finish. Sounds is great although I brought the model with no phono amp so it's plugged into my own Yamaha . Would recommend to anyone getting into vinyls on a low budget.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good startup Easy to setup. Belt system emits a noise but can’t be heard from listening position. RCA cable is not removable unless you install some connectors and replace the supplied wiring. Good service from Richer Sounds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great service as always and great knowledge. I have purchased a Project Primary E record player and also ordered a dragonfly cobalt DAC at the same time. The record player whilst a bit fiddly to get the belt on is essentially plug and play. Sounds great with my Yamaha RXA 2020 and KEF Q series speakers. Taken me ages to dig out my old records from the 70s 80s & 90s that haven't been played for at least 25 years. It's a great trip down memory lane. The DAC is due for delivery today so I'll have to update you on that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks and sounds great for the money Bought this as my teenage son's Christmas present and we both look the look and the sound of it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great sound awful fiddly way to change speed. I purchased this back in March this year. Love the suit produced from my old vinyl records. Only one thing I hate about it that you have to move the belt manually and there is no groove in the latter means it’s a fiddly job each time before y the belt goes properly around the platter and the speed adjustment spindle. Wish they had modified the design to make this change better in some way.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very simple turntable but with amazing sound. Extremely happy with my purchase. Would definitely recommend it to others
