Pro-Ject Elemental Turntable with Ortofon Cartridge - Silver


Brand Pro-Ject

The entry level Elemental has revolutionized affordable turntables. Most budget decks are made from plastic and are of a full automatic design, this is handy but not great when sound quality is priority. Taking it's engineering values from more expensive models the elemental has all the important elements of a great sounding turntable.
Pro-Ject have opted for a high density MDF material in place of commonly used plastic increasing the mass and providing damping properties to lower distortion. The high mass platter will provide a more consistent speed, that will improve pitch and timing. Pro-Ject have cleverly created a great budget performer that has style and substance.
We will be more than happy to demonstrate this deck and even help setup for you at our Liverpool store.


The new Elemental table is a real "plug'n'play" turntable. No adjustment of counterweight and anti-skating is needed, because both are pre-adjusted. This new straight ultra low mass tonearm is optimised for the Ortofon OM cartridge series. 

All the buyer needs to do is remove it from the box, remove bearing guard, locate the belt around the platter, remove stylus guard and plug it in. 

The hidden secret to the new 'table's sonic success, is a central gravity mass point, made from artificial stone and placed directly underneath the platter bearing. It is capable to fully absorb unwanted rumble and motor vibration. This turntable appears to be pure simplicity itself, while maintaining high quality audio standards.

The Elemental also comes in a Phono USB model, click here.
