Pro-Ject Essential 2
Pro-Ject Essential 2
Catalogue Number
Release Date
February 2014

The Essential 2 maintains the same look and construction of Pro-jects previous model, the 'Essential' - but with a brand new tonearm and upgraded power supply the performance of the turntable reaches new heights

A quiet-running synchronous motor with silicone belt is driving a low-resonance platter made from MDF. A new motor control with DC power supply minimzes unwanted vibration effectively. The main platter bearing consists of stainless steelspindle and bronze bushing with Teflon bottom to seccure low friction.

The main chassis is made from lightweight, but very stiff particle board. Essential II utilises a straight 8,6" aluminium tonearm design made from a single piece of aluminium with sapphire bearings, which offers a far better "plug & play" solution, than it‘s predecessor. Special feet effectively decouples the turntable from the surface.
