With the new Essential III line Pro-Ject covers many demands of vinyl enthusiasts. Table and tonearm fit the great Pro-Ject standard, so does the used MM cartridge. All in all a clean and lively sound signature
Stereo (July, 2017)
The Essential III belies its eminently affordable price tag with a sound that is fluid, musical and generally highly accomplished. The deck is sure-footed and more than able to dig deep into the heart of a recording to reveal inner detail.
Pro-Ject has done it again. By subtly improving critical aspects of the Essential II turntable and making a small cartridge change to big effect, the Essential III once again jumps nimbly to the top of the budget turntable class. The whole package is beautifully judged, well made and superb value for money. Even more importantly, its sound perfectly illustrates to a newcomer exactly what is so good about vinyl.
