Pro-Ject VT-E is the company's first ever vertical turntable and its innovative design makes it a unique offering in the market. It can be installed easily on a desktop or a wall and VT-E is also available in three different finishes and boasts left (special order only) or right-handed versions.
Pro-Ject Audio Systems are at the cutting-edge of hi-fi turntable design. The Vienna-based company design and engineer a vast range of record players, with the aim of providing a viable option for any audio enthusiast – regardless of budget or technical requirements.
With the rapid re-emergence of the vinyl format in popular culture, Pro-Ject are also looking to attract new people to the world of high-fidelity audio by producing a lifestyle turntable that incorporates hi-fi principles into a device that really stands out in your home.
The VT-E is Pro-Ject’s first ever vertical turntable, and its innovative design makes it a unique offering in the market. Not only can it be installed easily on a desktop or a wall, but VT-E is also available in three different finishes and boasts left- or right-handed versions.
The VT-E is based on the popular Elemental turntable, which has won plaudits around the world for its great sound and affordable price. Like the Elemental, the VT-E has a pre-set tonearm and cartridge, so all you need to do to get spinning is install the belt and platter, then plug it into your turntable-ready hi-fi system. Turntable set-up does not need to be complicated or arduous, and VT-E proves that.
Desktop or Wall
The VT-E plinth and platter are made from acoustically neutral medium-density fibreboard, and the supplied record clamp ensures the record does not slip on the spindle during playback. When mounting on a desk, the supplied feet and back-support create a sturdy tripod that isolates well from external vibrations. Alternatively when mounting on a wall the supplied mounting kit ensures a reliable fixing to the wall’s surface.
The VT-E’s motor is the same proven design as found in other Pro-Ject turntables, and boasts a built in AC generator for reliable speed stability and minimal noise. The tonearm is the same aluminium design found on the Elemental, but its specially-designed spring mechanism allows for accurate tracking of the record, even though it’s being played vertically. The VT-E is supplied with a set of preterminated Connect-IT E phono cables, for reliable connection to an external phono stage.
The overall result is a true hi-fi turntable, but one that looks like nothing else you’ve seen before. The VT-E is available in matt black, red or white finish, and is supplied with all required accessories. The right-handed version has a downward facing tonearm, and the left-handed version has an upward facing tonearm, for convenient cueing. An alternative VT-E will also be introduced soon with a high-gloss plinth, built-in phono stage and optional Bluetooth output for unrivalled convenience and style.
