Building on the success of the multi-award winning Essential 2 turntable, Pro-Ject have taken their own traditional design, and completely revolutionised it to create the Pro-Ject Essential II Digital turntable, that accommodates the needs of the vinyl listener.
Aiming to be the first turntable with straight out of the box connectivity to any modern hi-fi system, the Essential 2 Digital incorporates a brand new integrated phono stage giving users the ability to choose between an analogue line level output or a 24-bit/96kHz digital Optical output.
The Optical output transmits a pure, unadulterated signal to any digital hub via the high-quality Analogue-Digital Converter (ADC). So whether you are listening to music through a soundbar, AV receiver, DAC, digital pre-amplifier or a multi-room system with different input options, you know the Essential 2 Digital will 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 Pro-Ject Essential 2 Digital stands out from the crowd 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.
