"An excellent entry-level turntable that gets all the basics spot-on. It makes listening to records fun, and we can't ask for more than that." What Hi-Fi? Sound & Vision magazine. Best turntable up to £400, 2015 Awards

Genuine hi-fi turntable

Unlike many other turntables around this price, the Pro-Ject Essential 2 has all the elements of a proper hi-fi turntable - just at a lower price. The deck has a new motor control making it quieter and minimises unwanted vibrations. The main bearing is made from stainless steel and runs within a bronze bushing with a Teflon coating. This type of build integrity is usually reserved for much more expensive designs and gives the Essential 2 a remarkable precision of sound.

Single piece aluminium tone-arm

Continuing its hi-fi credentials, the Pro-Ject Essential II is supplied with a good quality tone-arm. Made from a single piece of aluminium, it's both light and rigid. The more rigid the more precisely it tracks, making listening to your records a more involving experience. For long-lasting quality, the tone-arm is fitted with sapphire bearings.

Factory-fitted Ortofon cartridge

The final flourish to this turntable is the inclusion of an Ortofon OM5e cartridge. Usually valued at over £50 on its own, it's a fantastic bonus to have this bundled in with the turntable. Its elliptical shaped stylus provides a balanced and distortion-free sound that's also kind to your records in terms of its low wear rate.

A design classic

In a classic case of form following function, the Project Essential 2 offers effortless style through its pared down minimalism. To emphasize the style statement, you can now order the Essential 2 in red or white as well as the more traditional black.

Essential in both name and nature, the Pro-Ject Essential 2 has everything you need to enjoy your records.
