Pro-Ject Essential II Phono USB


The Pro-Ject Essential 2 USB takes everything that was great about the Pro-Ject Essential and makes it even better! The Essential 2 USB is the latest offering from Pro-Jects affordable turntable range.

Welcoming a new motor control the Essential 2 offers quieter running and minimises unwanted vibrations. This turntable is a manual turntable that comes supplied with the same fitted cartridge as was previously found on its more expensive sibling, the RPM 1.3 Genie. This deck is the ultimate in introductory hi-fi; an 8.6” aluminium tonearm made from a single piece of aluminium combines with a sturdy plinth to make an even greater sounding and affordable turntable package.

The Essential 2 USB comes with a built in phono stage with a USB out allowing for connection to both the line-level input of your hi-fi system and your PC/Mac so they easily can be used simultaneously!
