A classic design
Based on classic 'frame' designs from turntable pioneers like Thorens, Ariston and Linn, but with modern Pro-Ject input, the Classic is far more sophisticated than first appearances suggest.

Isolated twin-plinth for superb vibration resistance
With two plinths as standard, the motor sits in a separate one to the tonearm and bearing. This isolates the sensitive tonearm and bearing mounts from potential vibration issues caused by the motor. The two plinths are further isolated by the use of TPE (Thermo-Plastic Elastomers) between them.

Platter damping
Damping also extends to the brand new platter design. Using an aluminium alloy has long been the traditional choice but, once again, Pro-Ject has improved on this by using modern technology. Lining the inside of platter with TPE damps it and kills the 'bell effect' that can cause unwanted resonance from the metal platter. The result is that even the most subtle musical detail can clearly be heard.

Radical new tonearm design
Developing their famous carbon fibre tonearms to the next level, the Classic's tonearm tube uses a sandwich of carbon fibre and aluminium. The carbon fibre provides its usual rigidity and low mass while the aluminium delivers better overall damping. The nickel-plated counterweight is also TPE-damped, for ultra-low resonance. It may be brand new in design, but this tonearm is all set to become its very own classic.

Ortofon 2M Silver cartridge fitted
Matching the hi-spec arm is an equally impressive cartridge. With a value of around £100, this cartridge is a considerable step-up over typical budget designs. The advantages of such a high quality cartridge include a wider frequency response for deeper bass and more detailed treble, plus less wear on your records.

Natural sound
Taken as a whole, this immaculately designed turntable sounds superb. The design provides a powerful and dynamic sound that's typical of this type of design. Thanks to the attention paid to damping, it also has a very 'clean' and precise balance that's a world away from similar looking, 'woolly-sounding' decks from the past.

Easy to set-up
A great advantage of using TPE damping rather than springs between the two plinths is that you don't need specialist skills and tools to set it up. With fixed rate damping on the plinth, you're simply left to make the usual tonearm adjustments - just as you would with Pro-Ject's more basic decks.

Classic style
A substantial wooden casing, metal topped plinth and deep, aluminium platter give the Classic the style of a far more expensive turntable. A choice of three matte finishes makes it easy to get a Classic that complements your room decor.

A classic by name and nature, this Pro-Ject turntable is one to cherish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Build quality and Excellent Sound I purchased the Project Classic about two weeks ago from Richer Sounds Edinburgh branch through Garry the store manager. The turntable arrived last week and I set it up over the weekend and I am more than happy with the result. The turntable is first class , very well packaged,easy to set up and the sound is breathtaking at times. The build quality is of a very high standard and really is a fantastic buy at the price. The sound is sharp, soundstage and stereo imaging is precise and could easily pass for a turntable with a significantly higher price tag. I am enjoying playing my vinyl that I have had stored away for over 20 years and the quality of sound is absolutely excellent . I can't praise this turntable highly enough and would advise anyone thinking of revitalising their record collection to give the turntable serious consideration. Thanks to Garry at Richer Sounds Edinburgh for first class advice as always and once again I have made another excellent purchase from Richer Sounds. thanks Murray

Exquisite sounds from 40 year old vinyl. Richer sounds gave great tips for setting up correctly which was far easier than I had anticipated. Thanks t
