Product Description

Pro-Ject Essential III Digital Turntable shares the award-winning qualities of the standard version but adds an integrated phono stage and optical digital output.

Components

Essential III offers a diamond-cut aluminum drive pulley, an acoustically neutral resonance-optimised MDF main platter and chassis. The refined, high-gloss and high-precision platter bearing has significantly lower tolerances than Essential II.

Simple Setup

The setup is very simple and the performance of the included Connect it E Phono RCA cable surpasses its price range. Equipped with the high-quality pickup OM10 by the phonographic cartridge pioneer Ortofon, Essential III delivers lively, balanced and highly involving sound that will delight every vinyl lover.

Flexi Range

The Essential III Digital is part of Pro-Ject's affordable turntable concept series that ensures you don't waste money on features you won't use. This FlexiRange allows you to pick exactly which turntable is right for your personal system. All models in the FlexiRange are based on the standard Essential III turntable.

High Quality

From the high-quality decoupling feet, all the way onto the aluminium tonearm, Ortofon OM 10 cartridge and 9V asynchronous motor; the Essential III is a proven performer that’s more than justified its 5 Star rating from What Hi-Fi magazine. Essential III Digital takes the Essential III design and adds the specially developed phono stage taken from the award-winning Essential II Digital turntable.

Compatibility

The Essential III Digital aims to be a turntable that can be connected straight out of the box to any modern hi-fi system. The integrated phono stage gives users the option between an analogue line level output or a switchable 24-bit/96kHz digital Optical output. The Optical output can be set at 48kHz or 96kHz and 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 III Digital should fit in flawlessly.

Optical Output

The added benefit of optical transmission is that you can run longer cables without the same signal loss you would experience with long RCA leads. So if you want your turntable to sit away from your amplifier while still sounding great and not using wireless technology, that's now possible!

Phono Stage

The switchable 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. For when you're ready to upgrade your system, the whole phono stage can also be bypassed for connection to an upgraded external phono stage. Like all models in the Essential III FlexiRange, the Essential III Digital is available in a high-gloss red, white or black finish.
