Essential III Phono

Pre-fitted with Ortofon OM 10 Cartridge

The Pro-Ject Essential III Phono is the perfect solution for the budding audiophile, with precision-crafted materials and a simple, elegant design that looks as lovely as it sounds. Featuring a built-in phono stage, the Essential III Phono will fit easily into most sound systems.

 

The easiest way to add vinyl to your system

Building on Pro-Ject’s award-winning Essential II, the Essential III Phono features a more refined bearing and an improved MDF body to give you smooth playback and a lively, balanced sound. With understated elegance and European-built quality, the Essential III Phono is a delight you’ll treasure for years to come. The Essential III Phono comes pre-fitted with an Ortofon OM10 cartridge, which works in concert with Pro-Ject’s finely-engineered 8.6” aluminium tonearm to reveal detail in your favourite records as you’ve never heard before. And with its built-in phono stage, the Essential III Phono fits easily into most sound systems.

Simple, elegant design

Clean lines and classic geometry make the Essential III a stylish addition to any room, continuing Pro-Ject’s decades-long reputation for elegant, understated turntables.

Built-in phono stage

The sound coming from a turntable is extremely soft, so it requires a boost to get it to a listenable level. That’s the job of a phono stage, and the Essential III Phono has a phono stage built-in to make it easy to set up. Even better, the high-quality phono stage can be switched on or off as required, so the Essential III Phono can be paired with a new phono stage if you choose to upgrade in the future.

MDF construction

A major design evolution from the award-winning Essential II, the MDF used in the body and platter of the Essential III offers a more solid build, with better vibration-management for a smooth, natural tone.

Ortofon OM10 Cartridge & aluminium tonearm.

The Essential III Phono comes pre-fitted with an Ortofon OM10 cartridge. Its smooth movement allows the OM10 to extract astounding new details from your records, and bring them to life with a vivid, evocative feel. The cartridge works in concert with Pro-Ject’s finely-engineered 8.6” aluminium tonearm to reveal detail in your favourite records like you’ve never heard before.

Manual speed control

Play both 33rpm and 45rpm records with a simple adjustment of the pulley which the drive belt sits on.

Adjustable Counterweight & Anti-skating weight

Unlike the Jukebox & Primary lines, the Essential ranges features adjustable counterweights and anti-skating weights to accomodate any stylus or cartridge upgrade in the future.
