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!
