Pro-Ject Essential III Phono
The Pro-Ject Essential III Phono is the perfect solution for the budding audiophile, with precision-crafted materials and a simple, elegant design that looks as lovely as it sounds. Featuring a built-in phono stage, the Essential III Phono will fit easily into most sound systems.
The easiest way to add vinyl to your system
Building on Pro-Ject’s award-winning Essential II, the Essential III Phono features a more refined bearing and an improved MDF body to give you smooth playback and a lively, balanced sound. With an understated elegance and European-built quality, the Essential III Phono is a delight you’ll treasure for years to come. The Essential III Phono comes pre-fitted with an Ortofon OM10 cartridge, which works in concert with Pro-Ject’s finely-engineered 8.6” aluminium tonearm to reveal detail in your favourite records like you’ve never heard before. And with its built-in phono stage, the Essential III Phono fits easily into most sound systems.
Simple, elegant design
Clean lines and classic geometry make the Essential III a stylish addition to any room, continuing Pro-Ject’s decades-long reputation for elegant, understated turntables.
Engineered With Care:
Built-in phono stage
The sound coming from a turntable is extremely soft, so it requires a boost to get it to a listenable level. That’s the job of a phono stage, and the Essential III Phono has a phono stage built-in to make it easy to set up. Even better, the high-quality phono stage can be switched on or off as required, so the Essential III Phono can be paired with a new phono stage if you choose to upgrade in the future.
A major design evolution from the award-winning Essential II, the MDF used in the body and platter of the Essential III offers a more solid build, with better vibration-management for a smooth, natural tone.
Ortofon OM10 Cartridge & aluminium tonearm.
The Essential III Phono comes pre-fitted with an Ortofon OM10 cartridge. Its smooth movement allows the OM10 to extract astounding new details from your records, and bring them to life with a vivid, evocative feel. The cartridge works in concert with Pro-Ject’s finely-engineered 8.6” aluminium tonearm to reveal detail in your favourite records like you’ve never heard before.
Manual speed control
Play both 33rpm and 45rpm records with a simple adjustment of the pulley which the drive belt sits on.
Adjustable Counterweight & Anti-skating weight
Unlike the Jukebox & Primary lines, the Essential ranges features adjustable counterweights and anti-skating weights to accomodate any stylus or cartridge upgrade in the future.

I haven't been able to play with this turntable much yet but so far I am very happy with it. I have a lot of old vinyl that I haven't played for years and just wanted a turntable that was a bit above entry level and the essential fits the bill nicely.
There was a bit of a hiccup with it being damaged during delivery but all replaced with no problems. It is a bit fiddly to set up to start with but persistence was the key in my case.
Very happy with the service from Nat at Living Entertainment who was very knowledgeable, patient and helpful.
