Product Description

Pro-Ject Essential III Phono Turntable takes all the advantages of the standard Essential III version and adds line level output


Essential III Phono is from Pro-Ject's ‘FlexiRange’, which are a range of turntables specifically designed to give you exactly what you need, whatever your needs. So there should be a FlexiRange turntable for your system without you paying extra for any unnecessary features. Every model in this intuitive range is derived from the Essential III turntable.

Phono Version

The Essential III Phono takes all the advantages of the standard Essential III, from its high-quality, acoustically neutral, high-gloss MDF plinth and platter, premium bearing and decoupling feet to the 8.6” aluminium tonearm, Ortofon OM 10 cartridge and 9V asynchronous motor, but adds a Line level output for effortlessly simple integration into any hi-fi system.

Phono Stage

Based on Pro-Jects award-winning Phono Box series, this turntable uses integrated phono stage from the Phono Box range, offering precise RIAA equalisation and optimal signal gain for crystal clear playback through speakers. It also uses a junction box output for easy cable upgrades.

Though the Line level output enables connection to any LINE or AUX input on an amplifier, the handy switch on the side of the terminal enables you to turn off the phono stage. This means if you want to enjoy a superior phono-stage later on, you do not need to upgrade the whole turntable.


The Essential III Phono is belt driven from a synchronous motor and uses a durable silicone belt. High-quality semi-balanced Connect it E phono interconnect with gold-plated RCA connectors are included. Built-in DC-driven motor control lowers motor vibration and ensures speed reliability. It includes special decoupling feet and a dust cover.

Audiophile Grade

Producing audiophile acoustics in a handy package, Essential III Phono is simple to install into any hi-fi set up or to link to your amplifier in a living or listening room. The tuned, high-precision platter bearing has notably reduced tolerances than Essential II.

Essential III Phono delivers vivid, level and greatly immersive sound sure to delight any vinyl enthusiast. Like the other models in the range, it comes in a stunning high-gloss black, red or white finish.
