Pro-Ject Essential III HP The Audiophile Entry-level Turntable (Cartridge Included)

£399.00

The audiophile Entry-level Turntable

With headphone output & phono stage

Essential III HP is the perfect partner if you want to enjoy your vinyl collection with headphones. The 6.35 mm output offers the option to listen to your records in a more intimate way, making sure you don‘t disturb others.

The Essential III HP brings all the benefits of the Essential line up but adds a dedicated headphone output and a phono stage with line level and phono output. Essential III offers a variety of enhancements compared to its successful predecessor, such as a diamond-cut aluminum drive pulley, a resonance-optimized MDF main platter and MDF chassis. The refined, high-precision platter bearing has significantly lower tolerances than Essential II. Essential III is equipped with an 8,6” aluminium tonearm with the high-quality pickup OM10 by the phonographic cartridge pioneer Ortofon. The included Phono RCA cable, Connect it E, is a high-quality semi-balanced interconnect cable with gold-plated RCA connectors that guarantees the perfect connection. Also the special decoupling feet isolate the turntable from the surface it is place on to deliver the best sound possible.
