    Bringing Back Vinyl With A Vengeance

    Whether you are dusting off your own records, borrowing your neighbors' collection, or going to your local vinyl store to pick up a new LP, you will need a quality turntable for your system. And look no further than Pro–Ject's aptly–named Essentials III. This stunning piece will make your vinyl stand out and brings new life into any record you choose. The acoustic elegance is easy to tell with these record players, with tons of features that help the Essentials III stand out. First of all, this piece includes an Ortofon OM10 cartridge that is pre–mounted and ready for action. Secondly, the materials involved elevate this piece to a higher level of sound quality. The MDF–made plinth and platter are optimized for resonance sensitivity and the glossy white finish is elegant and ethereal. The carefully crafted felt mat enhances contact between your records and the platter, while the aluminum pulley allows for precision power transmission. The main platter is enhanced with low tolerances, leading to reduced rumble, and reduced wow & flutter. With all of these intricate design elements, it is easy to see how much effort Pro–Ject puts into their turntables, preparing to deliver acoustic excellence.
