HI-FI WORLD 2015
The multi-award winning Essential 2 turntable from Pro-Ject has been a huge success since its launch back in 2013. The simplistic yet elegant design built on solid hi-fi principles have delivered a great turntable at an affordable price. But now Pro-Ject have taken their own traditional design, and completely revolutionised it to accommodate the needs of the vinyl listener.
The Essential 2 Digital aims to be the first turntable that can be connected straight out of the box to any modern hi-fi system. The brand new integrated phono stage gives users the option between an analogue line level output or a 24-bit/96kHz digital Optical output. The Optical output uses a high quality Analogue-Digital Converter (ADC) to send a clean, uninterrupted signal to any digital hub. So whether listening to music through a soundbar, an AV receiver, a DAC, a digital pre-amplifier or a multi-room system with different input options - the Essential 2 Digital should fit in flawlessly. The analogue output uses a phono stage based upon Pro-Ject's iconic Phono Box design to deliver a brilliant performance from the fitted Ortofon cartridge.The Essential 2 Digital further stands out from those around it thanks to the new black and white high-gloss paint finishes, and the "Digital" logo emblazoned on the plinth. It also boasts all the pre-existing features that have made the Essential 2 an international award winner. The 8.6" aluminium tonearm, heavy MDF platter and low-voltage motor with perimeter belt drive make a winning combination; while the Ortofon OM5E is the perfect cartridge to get instant gratification from your vinyl collection.
