The Pro-Ject Audio Primary E is an entry level audiophile plug&play turntable with built-in phono stage and switchable phono/line output
Trend: Cheap turntables
Listening to analogue records has regained enormous strength over the last couple of years. This exact trend has also called upon a lot of manufacturers from far-east. They are trying to get a piece of the cake with plastic, features, low quality and cheap prices. Though they forget what makes a real turntable – sound quality! Only with high quality components and precision you will get everything out of the micro-groove. Plastic, lightweight platters, flimsy tonearms and low quality cabling with primitive cartridges are not suited for real HiFi grade turntables.
Pro-Ject‘s response: Primary E Phono
With a smart design of the tonearm Pro-Ject were able to combine pure sound quality with an easy setup. Pro-Ject's Plug & Play design with pre-adjusted tracking force and anti skating has saved costs and is extremely efficient in handling for Pro-Ject's customers. With no compromise in sound. Au contraire, the lightweight and low friction aluminium tonearm is optimised for the Ortofon OM series and will bring out its maximum potential. The Primary E Phono is equipped with a switchable phono or line output, so it can be run with a dedicated external phono preamp or the integrated phono preamp connected to a line input (for example AUX, CD, Tuner, Tape, etc.). With intelligent construction and without needless features Pro-Ject were able to keep the price attractive, despite it being hand made in Europe. This way Pro-Ject are able to offer you, their customers the maximum of sound quality!
