$599 $449

Many new audio systems, like home cinema receivers, soundbars, multiroom audio, TVs and Bluetooth speakers only offer digital optic input connections: So up to now vinyl lovers using such systems had no chance to play their records on those systems. The perfect solution is: Essential II DIGITAL

An unique belt-drive turntable with built-in MM pre-amplifier that features digital optic as well as analogue amplifier connection options. Delivered with acrylic lid and with high-gloss black deck.

A quiet-running synchronous motor with silicone belt is driving a low-resonance platter made from MDF.

The main chassis is made from lightweight, but very stiff particle board.

Utilising a straight 8,6′ aluminium tonearm with a single-pivot bearing made from steel, a spectacular good tracking of vinyl grooves is guaranteed. Due to the brilliant concept, unwanted resonances are effectively transferred into the tonearmbase and turntable chassis. Armtube and headshell are made from a single piece of aluminium.

Because the Pro-Ject Essential comes with pre-mounted cartridge, connection to phono input of your hifi system is made fast and simple and your vinyl treasures can be heard in outstanding quality!
