Pro-Ject - Essential II USB Turntable
Pro-Ject Essential II USB Turntable
The Pro-Ject Essential II USB turntable features a quiet-running synchronous motor with silicone belt driving a low-resonance platter made from MDF. A new motor control with DC power supply minimizes unwanted vibration effectively. The main platter bearing consists of a stainless steel spindle and bronze bushing with Teflon bottom to secure low friction. The main chassis is made from lightweight, but very stiff particle board. Essential II USB utilizes a straight 8.6" tonearm design made from a single piece of aluminum with sapphire bearings, for a far better plug-and-play solution than its predecessor. Special feet effectively decouple the turntable from the surface.
Because Essential II USB comes with a built-in phono preamp with USB output, connection to both line-level input of your hifi system and PC/Mac easily can be used simultaneously. Open-Source recording software is available for free and the perfect solution for recording and processing of your audio data.
