Trend: Cheap turntables
Listening to analogue records has grown in popularity enormously over the last couple of years. 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! Only with high quality components and precision can you extract all the detail from the micro-grooves of your record. 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
With a smart tonearm design we were able to combine pure sound quality with an easy setup. Our plug&play design with pre-adjusted tracking force and anti ska-ting 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 OM series and will bring out its maximum potential. With intelligent construction and without needless features we were able to keep the price attractive, despite this product being hand-made in Europe. This way we‘re able to offer our customers the sound quality they deserve!
