Vol. 14, No. 1 Spring/Summer, 2011



Pro-Ject has been one of the world's leading turntable manufacturers for many decades, and they have a reputation for providing great vinyl playback solutions at very affordable prices. They have now extended that availability down to even lower price ranges than before with three new models, the Essential at $299, the Essential USB at $499, and the RM1.3 at $499.

Pro-Ject Essential turntableThe Essential is an exceptionally attractive and high-performance turntable that has been reduced to the basics for first-time buyers or audiophiles on a tight budget. The performance-driven design is evidenced by a super-smooth-running AC synchronous motor that drives the resonance-free, MDF platter and a unipivot tonearm. The Essential incorporates a chrome-plated, stainless steel bearing axle that rests on a polished steel bearing in a bronze housing for low wow and flutter and speed accuracy. A single-piece tonearm with a fixed head shell features hardened, stainless steel bearings and a rigid aluminum tube that provide superb tracking and resonance reduction. The turntable comes fitted with a high-quality Ortofon OM 3E phono cartridge. These help make the Essential an unbelievable value. The Essential is available in matte black, red, or white.

The Essential USB is the same turntable equipped with a phono preamplifier that has standard analog as well as USB outputs. One can use the analog outputs to drive any preamplifier, integrated amplifier, or receiver that does not have a built-in phono preamplifier. The USB output can be used to transfer the output to a computer for archiving or CD production.

Pro-Ject RM1.3 turntableThe RM-1.3 is designed to look and perform like no other affordable turntable. Featuring a Sumiko Pearl moving magnet cartridge that is factory-mounted for your convenience, the RM-1.3 delivers musical fidelity that belies its price. A resonance-optimized MDF platter with a felt mat rests upon a three-point-suspension, MDF plinth. The RM-1.3 has a separate and completely-isolated motor assembly that has been optimized for low noise and speed stability. This model also incorporates an inverted, chrome-plated stainless steel bearing axle that rests on a polished steel bearing in a bronze housing for low wow and flutter and speed accuracy. Three nylon cone feet further reduce noise and vibration. A single-piece, 9-inch, S-shaped tonearm with a fixed head shell features hardened stainless steel bearings and a rigid aluminum tube that provide superb tracking. Accurate adjustment of both vertical tracking angle and azimuth are easily accomplished. The RM-1.3 is available in piano gloss black, red, or white.
