The unbelievable success and sound quality of the Essential tonearm gave Pro-Ject the idea to make a turntable using the same tonearm, but better motor assembly and better chassis construction. So in the Basic+ they’ve taken the main platter and bearing construction of the award-winning 2 Xperience turntable, but applied it in a slightly less-heavy chassis, and with a slightly simpler platter (MDF only, i.e. without the vinyl layer). The motor is a stand-alone type, so there is perfect isolation between the main chassis and motor.
Supplied in a neat Gloss Black finish, the turntable also comes pre-fitted with the Pro-Ject Pick-IT high-output moving coil cartridge. The Pro-Ject Pick-IT was developed in conjunction with Ortofon, the world-renowned manufacturer of quality pick-up cartridges, and it’s inclusion makes this record player a true high-end bargain.
