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.
Our first Essential turntable was released just for this purpose. It was the ‘everything you need, nothing you don’t’ turntable. And now we’ve updated it for even easier use and better performance with the Pro-Ject Essential II.
It utilises a quiet-running synchronous motor with a silicone belt to drive its low-resonance MDF platter. Upgraded from its predecessor, the Essential II features a DC power supply that effectively minimises vibration and an upgraded pivot design for better balance. The main platter bearing consists of a stainless steel spindle and bronze brushing, with a Teflon bottom to secure low friction.
