Audiophile plug& play turntable 

Over the last couple of years the popularity of listening to analogue records has grown enormously. 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! You can extract all the detail from the micro-grooves of your record only with high quality components and precision. 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-skating 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 cartridge 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!

A true HiFi stereo turntable!

Excellent entry to the world of Vinyl

Great sounding entry-level turntable. I have already had many hours of enjoying my small Vinyl collection on this turntable. The built-in phono soundstage does a good job of bringing out the detail on your Vinyl. It is easy to use and feels really sturdy without any cheap plastic. Setting up the turntable was a bit of a pain especially fitting the belt around the plate. The belt that came with it snapped when I was fitting it but Rapallo gave me a replacement at no extra cost. This is completely manual so you will need to lift the tonearm once it finishes playing the last track on the record.
