    Pro-Ject Audio Systems new George Harrison (Limited Edition) Record Player

    Pro-Ject Audio Systems have teamed up with the estate of legendary musician George Harrison to produce a special turntable, coinciding with the release of The George Harrison Vinyl Collection LP box-set from USM.

    The limited edition Pro-Ject George Harrison record player boasts an entirely unique appearance created by design specialists, Studio Number One. Studio Number One was founded by Shepard Fairey, and the Pro-Ject George Harrison record player makes use of an image taken from the world-famous artist’s work.



    The turntable itself is based on Pro-Ject Audio Systems’ coveted Essential III design with an Acryl-IT E platter. The Essential III benefits from a sturdy MDF plinth mounted on anti-vibration feet. Supplied with an acrylic platter, high-quality tonearm and Ortofon OM 10 cartridge, the sound performance puts the turntable in a class of its own when compared to rival products.

    The Pro-Ject George Harrison turntable is the perfect product for any George Harrison fan who takes their sound quality seriously. It’s also the ideal companion to the new vinyl box set, which features all twelve of Harrison’s studio albums as well as the classic live album Live In Japan (2LP) and two 12” single picture discs of When We Was Fab and Got My Mind Set On You.

    Released to commemorate George Harrison’s birthday (February 25th), the whole vinyl box set has been pressed onto high-quality 180g heavyweight vinyl with re-masters taken from the original analogue master tapes and newly cut at the legendary Capitol studios. With such a high-quality vinyl collection, it’s essential that you play these iconic tracks on a good record player, and the Pro-Ject George Harrison is just the player you need.

    Hi-Fi Choice (November 2016) reviews Pro-Ject Audio Systems new and award winning The Classic 25th Anniversary turntable

    Comments of Note:
    “I lower the stylus onto a recording of Tchaikovsky’s Cossack Dance from Mazeppa played by the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra. This lively performance is both joyful and sprightly and the sound is delightfully realistic in my listening room, highlighting just how good a test this Telarc LP is for a full orchestra.”
    Playing: Herb Alpert And The Tijuana Brass playing Our Day Will Come - “The trumpet consistently provides a real test for any cartridge and I’m pleased to note that it sounds well balanced and clear here. But what strikes me most is the timing and tempo, which are absolutely spot on. All of the musicians involved in this album are known for being at the top of their game and the Pro-Ject certainly does their performance proud.”
    Playing: Barbra Streisand - I Don’t Break Easily - “The clarity of her voice is very good indeed…”
    “The Classic is certainly a sophisticated turntable and its timeless elegance is brought right up to date by the carbon fibre construction of the tonearm. This arm matches well with the supplied Ortofon 2M Silver cartridge and sound-wise it turns in a great performance that’s particularly at home with vocals and jazz. All in all, The Classic is a perfect way to mark a 25th anniversary.”



    Hi-Fi News (August 2016) reviews Pro-Ject Audio Systems new and award winning The Classic 25th Anniversary turntable

    Comments of Note:
    “The Classic served up a wealth of information and ordered it beautifully…”
    “Vocalists were rendered with plenty of scale and located neatly to the fore of the action behind them.”
    “The bass that was present, however, was beyond reproach in terms of detail, texture and pin-sharp timing.”
    “rhythms were tracked with rail-like security ensuring the deck brought all kinds of songs to life with ease.”
    “The Reggae-esque bassline underpinning The Wave Pictures’ ‘Red Cloud Road (Part A)’ from their EP Helen skipped along with an infectious gaiety but also with an impeccable level of detail around each note. This wasn’t just a bass guitar off in the background somewhere being idly strummed: it was right at the heart of the action and being played with conviction.”
    “At the top end, The Classic package also turned in a highly capable performance.”
    “By designing something positively affordable for its quarter-century, Pro-Ject has come up with a turntable that can hold its head high for the celebration.”
    “The Classic is simply and neatly styled and turns in an excellent performance. There is plenty of scope to upgrade it further and I can see it winning many friends. Equally, I can’t wait to see what the company has up its sleeve in five years time for its 30th!”

    To celebrate their 25 year anniversary, Pro-Ject Audio Systyems are combining traditional design with modern technology in a brand new turntable model. The aptly named 'Classic' is a sleek, compact and elegant turntable based around the "frame" design popularised by the likes of Thorens and Linn in the 1950's and 60's, but implemented with the innovative technologies Pro-Ject have become known for.

    The two-plinth design allows the motor to sit in a separate plinth to the bearing and tonearm, reducing the unwanted transference of electrical and mechanical noise. The two medium-density fibre plinth sections are isolated from each-other with the use of specially selected Thermo-Plastic Elastomers (TPE). The use of TPE, rather than the spring-loaded method of historical designs, makes The Classic effortlessly simple to set up while retaining anti-resonance properties.


    Pro-Ject Audio Systems The Classic 25th Anniversary turntable

    The idea of anti-resonant structures also carries through to The Classic's platter. The general layout was inspired by the iconic Debut platter assembly, but the main platter has been significantly upgraded to a special aluminium alloy version which is internally lined with TPE damping. The sub-platter and bearing are also similar to the Debut design, but the tolerances are far tighter for The Classic, resulting in a higher-quality performance.


    Pro-Ject Audio Systems The Classic 25th Anniversary turntable

    The Classic also boasts a radical new tonearm design, inspired by the production processes developed for the award-winning RPM 3 Carbon turntable. The tonearm tube is made from a sandwich composite of carbon and aluminium. The carbon fibre gives the arm rigidity, speed and reduced mass, while the aluminium delivers better overall damping. The tube is then supported by a new bearing assembly with ultra-low friction and wider movement for improved tracking. The nickel-plated counterweight not only looks fantastic, it's also TPE-damped to ensure the arm remains acoustically neutral. The Classic tonearm can also be VTA and azimuth adjusted to suit almost any modern pick-up cartridge.

    The Classic is supplied as standard with the Ortofon 2M Silver cartridge, which has been developed exclusively for Pro-Ject Audio Systems. This popular moving-magnet design allows The Classic to perform to a high standard right out of the box, and also offers upgrade options as your musical journey continues. The Classic is also supplied with a fitted dust cover, a junction box for easy cable upgrades and the Connect-IT E RCA cables. The three finishes (Eucalyptus (Black), Rosenut and Walnut) also mean The Classic can fit into any decor.

    Pro-Ject Audio Systems The Classic 25th Anniversary turntable Key Features:

    • Belt drive anniversary turntable with multi-plinth design
    • MDF plinths (top plinth has metal layer 'sandwich' finish) separated by TPE suspension

    Pro-Ject Audio Systems Primary turntable


    Pro-Ject Audio Systems Primary turntable in Black finish

    If you thought that setting up a hi-fi quality turntable was complicated, the Pro-Ject Primary sets out to disprove that theory. It does this by effectively combining the strong points of two other award-winning turntables from the Pro-Ject range; the Elemental and the Essential II.


    Pro-Ject Audio Systems Primary turntable in White finish


    Pro-Ject Audio Systems Primary turntable in Red finish



    Like the Elemental, the Primary uses an 8.6” aluminium tonearm with sapphire bearings for optimal tracking. The tonearm is pre-configured for the supplied Ortofon OM 5E pick-up cartridge, so there’s no need to set-up the tracking force or anti-skate during installation. The motor is also the same perimeter belt-drive type, with a low-vibration synchronous motor that’s controlled by a built-in regulator for improved speed stability.

    Where the Primary takes from the Essential II is in the traditional design layout. It shares the Essential II’s high-quality MDF finish, and the acoustically neutral MDF platter/felt mat platform. The plinth is available in matte black, red or white finish, and the added benefit of this layout is in the included detachable dust cover.

    The Primary is terminated with RCA cables for direct connection to a Moving-Magnet phono stage. A separate version with a built-in USB phono stage is also available.

    The Primary turntable sets out to prove that hi-fi quality turntables don’t need to be complicated. Simply install the belt and connect it to a system in order to enjoy vinyl playback on an affordable device that won’t hurt your records.

    "Move aside, pretenders. The Primary shows Pro-Ject is king of the budget turntable."

    "If you’re looking for a way ‘in’ to the record revival, the Primary is an excellent introduction."
