Sometimes, you don’t need frills. You don’t need all the bells and whistles. It’s not about flashy designs, unnecessary innovations or reinventing the wheel. Sometimes, you just need the essentials, done right.

Pro-Ject’s first Essential turntable was released just for this purpose. It was the ‘everything you need, nothing you don’t’ turntable. And now they have updated it for even easier use and better performance with the Pro-Ject Essential III.

Essential III offers a variety of enhancements compared to its successful predecessor, such as a diamond-cut aluminium drive pulley, a resonance-optimised MDF main platter and an MDF chassis. The refined, high-precision platter bearing has significantly lower tolerances than Essential II. Essential III is the audiophile entry turntable! The setup is very simple, the included Phono RCA cable, Connect-It E, performs way above its price range. Equipped with the high-quality Ortofon OM10, the Essential III delivers a lively, balanced and highly engrossing sound that will delight every vinyl lover.

  • Belt drive with synchronous motor and silicone belt
  • Diamond cut aluminium drive pulley
  • Chassis and platter made from low-resonance MDF

  • 8.6” aluminium tonearm with sapphire bearings
