Audiophile plug&play turntable with built-in phono stage and switchable phono/line output
Trend: Cheap turntables
Over the last couple of years the popularity of listening to analogue records has grown enormously. This trend has enticed a lot of manufacturers from far and wide to enter the turntable game. These new players are trying to get a piece of the cake with plastic, features, low quality and cheap prices. They forget what makes a real turntable – sound quality! You can extract all the detail from the micro-grooves of your record only with high quality components and precision. Plastic, lightweight platters, flimsy tonearms and low quality cabling with primitive cartridges are not suited for real HiFi grade turntables.
Pro-Ject‘s response to cheap turntables: Primary E Phono
With a smart design of the tonearm we were able to combine pure sound quality with an easy setup. Our Plug & Play design with pre-adjusted tracking force and anti-skating has saved us costs and is extremely efficient in handling for our customers. With no compromise in sound. On contraire, the lightweight and low friction aluminium tonearm is optimized for the Ortofon cartridge 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 with the integrated phono preamp connected to a line input (for example AUX, CD, Tuner, Tape, etc.). With intelligent construction and without needless features we were able to keep the price attractive, despite it being hand made in Europe. This way we‘re able to offer our customers the maximum of sound quality!
A true HiFi stereo turntable!
