Pro-Ject Essential III Piono Black

ESSENTIAL3B

Pro-Ject's new Essential III is the perfect solution for the budding audiophile, with precision-crafted materials and simple, elegant designs that look as lovely as they sound. Building on the award-winning Essential II, the new Essential III series features a more refined bearing and an improved MDF body to give you smooth playback and a lively, balanced sound.

The Essential III comes pre-fitted with a high-quality Ortofon cartridge, which works in concert with Pro-Ject's finely-engineered 8.6" aluminium tonearm to reveal detail in your favourite records like you've never heard before. And with the shielded Connect-It E RCA cable ready to go, the sound that comes off the record will come out of your speakers crystal-clear and free of interference.

The Essential III includes the new MDF design, aluminium tonearm with Ortofon cartridge and more.
