THE HI–FI HEADLINES
The resurgence of Vinyl has given a new lease of life to many turntable manufacturers of yesteryear, with companies such as Rega, Thorens and Linn experiencing a return to the good old days.
The company that has reaped the greatest benefit is a relative newcomer, Pro-Ject Audio. Beginning in the 1990s the philosophy behind Pro-Ject was to bring high-end vinyl performance to the midrange market. A good example of this is the Pro-Ject ‘Classic’ turntable (shown above), which we currently have on special for $995 plus cartridge. This turntable, which retails for $1,695, offers great performance for an achievable price. This approach is obviously working, as Pro-Ject is now the biggest selling turntable brand in the world.
Pro-Ject offers a formidable range of turntables, and most of them have just been upgraded. We carry models ranging from the Primary E selling for $349 including cartridge through to the Signature 10 at $8,800 – plus cartridge.
One of the highlights of the range is the Debut Carbon Endurance (below left), which has been fitted with an Ortofon 2M Red cartridge. This combination sells for $750, and at the moment comes with a free replacement stylus valued at $130. This is an exceptionally good turntable for the money, and the offer of the free stylus makes it a very attractive buy.
Another standout is the 2Xperience ($2,000rrp) which is available with the Ortofon 2M Bronze cartridge ($600rrp) for $2,200 complete.
