Pro-Ject Essential III Digital Turntable

The Audiophile Entry-level Turntable - With digital output & phono stage

The Essential III Digital offers its owner the opportunity not only to hear their records in the best analog quality, but also to convert them into a digital data stream via the optical output if required. This makes it an excellent partner for multi-room systems, sound bars or even TV sets! For the ease of use Essentiall III Digital also features a switchable phono and line level output.

Essential III Digital offers a variety of enhancements compared to its successful predecessor, such as a diamond-cut aluminum drive pulley, a resonance-optimized MDF main platter and MDF chassis.

The refined, high-precision platter bearing has significantly lower tolerances than Essential II. Essential III is equipped with an 8,6” aluminium tonearm with the high-quality pickup OM10 by the phonographic cartridge pioneer Ortofon.

The included Phono RCA cable, Connect it E, is a high-quality semi-balanced interconnect cable with gold-plated RCA connectors that guarantees the perfect connection. Also the special decoupling feet isolate the turntable from the surface it is place on to deliver the best sound possible.
