Product Description

Pro-Ject Essential III SB Turntable adds, to the impressive list of features of the standard Essential III, a built-in speed control for 33 and 45rpm.

SB Version

Essential III SB is part of Pro-Ject's ‘FlexiRange’ which allows you to pick exactly which turntable is right for your personal system without paying extra for unnecessary features. Each model that makes up the FlexiRange is based on the original Essential III turntable.

This is the one to choose when it comes to comfort needs for the audiophile that has multiple 12“ LPs and 7“ Singles and likes to flip through them with ease. It enables the listener to shift speeds with the touch of only a button alternating between 33.3 to 45 rpm and vice versa within moments.

Speed Control

The neatly integrated speed control function on the Essential III SB is operated by a simple push button on top of the plinth, using an improved version of the motor generation system found in all other Essential III models.

This advanced motor control system ensures a clean power supply to the motor, reducing resonance and unwanted noise; so the Essential III SB can still deliver a lively, balanced and highly involving sound that will delight every vinyl lover.


Essential III turntables are pre-fitted with an 8.6” aluminium tonearm for its lightweight, rigid characteristics. The gimbal bearing assembly uses sapphire bearings to allow for smooth tracking across a record, and the supplied counterweight allows for a variety of premium pick-up cartridges to be installed.

The top grade OM10 pickup by pioneer Ortofon will guarantee for sonic pleasures all around. The OM 10 incorporates an oval profile and exact micro-mechanics to produce a nice, loaded soundstage with ample impact.

Essential III

All Essential III turntables retain the simple yet elegant frame of the Essential II. Constructed from premium MDF for its astounding acoustically natural traits; the turntable platter fuses both grace and functionality. The chassis is fixed on triple anti-vibration feet, for effecient decoupling from the level on which the turntable is placed.

Audiophile Grade

Essential III turntables features an identical 9V motor to its prior model, but its also the first to incorporate a fresh integrated grounding connection that drastically lowers mechanical interference to unheard of low levels.

The motor is a high-end, synchronous AC design that’s powered by an integrated signal generator, guaranteeing maximum speed steadiness and ultra low resonances. The fresh aluminium pulley enhances the performance and the look even further still. Essential III SB comes in a stunning high-gloss black, red or white finish.
