Pro-Ject - Essential III BT Turntable
Pro-Ject Essential III BT Turntable NEW for 2018!
Stream Vinyl LPs to Bluetooth-Enabled Devices, Play Records with Involving and Detailed Sound with the Pro-Ject Essential III BT Turntable: Includes Pre-Mounted Ortofon Cartridge and Wireless Output
Spin and stream your LPs to Bluetooth-enabled headphones, DACs, or active speakers with the Pro-Ject Essential III BT turntable. An EISA Award-winning Essential III ‘table bolstered by an aptX Bluetooth output, Essential III BT sends wireless data streams to any capable device within its 30-foot range, allowing you to take the sound of your vinyl with you anywhere (and your Bluetooth gear) goes. Factor in Pro-Ject's turntable heritage, the inclusion of a preinstalled and factory-aligned Ortofon OM10 cartridge, and entry-level high-end performance, quality, and aesthetics, and Essential III BT is worth far more than its asking price.
Featuring an 8.6-inch aluminum tonearm with sapphire bearings, hearty MDF platter, diamond-cut aluminum pulley, enhanced low-tolerance bearing with stainless-steel spindle, resonance-damping decoupling feet, and a sturdy MDF chassis, Essential III BT tracks and plays back LPs with absorbing precision and nuance-extracting detail. Its integrated DC-powered motor control minimizes vibration and affords excellent speed stability.
You also get a Connect-It E, a phono cable with gold-plated connectors that far outperforms the signal-transmission quality of stock RCA versions, as well a dust cover for handy protection. And because of the so-simple-anyone-can-do-it setup, you'll be enjoying music very soon after you unbox Essential III BT.
If there's one caveat that comes with Essential III BT, it's that you'll be spending lots more time listening to music – no matter where you're at. Then again, that's what spinning LPs is all about. All you need to do is decide what high-gloss color you desire.
"Another budget Pro-Ject turntable, another five-star review – the company simply can't shake the habit of turning out top-class turntables."

"Anyone upgrading from an entry-level record player is going to love the output from this turntable."
