Don't Forget the Accessories!
Pro-Ject use rigorous standards and lessons learnt in the production of their high end turntables to help deliver class-leading sound quality for the Essential II, making it an outstanding entry level, belt driven turntable.

Driving a low-resonance platter, the ultra-quiet synchronous motor vastly reduces unwanted vibration. While the tonearm with sapphire bearings is engineered from a single piece of aluminium, again minimising any unnecessary play and delivering a reassuringly firm action. Additionally, the feet of the Essential II are designed as such that they effectively decouple the chassis from the surface you place the turntable on, reducing any potential resonance even further.

Featuring a pre-mounted Ortofon OM5e cartridge and gold-plated RCA interconnect cables, the Essential II sets the standard for entry level turntables and delivers a truly impressive performance for such a modest price.Back to Top
