Project Primary Acryl Turntable inc Ortofon OM Cartridge - Matt Black
Pro-Ject's “Plug & Play” turntable with an acrylic platter for clearer bass response
If you thought that a turntable set-up is complicated like rocket-science, Primary proves the contrary. This good sounding beltdrive deck offers the fastest possible installation process because it comes pre-adjusted out of the box. No further set-up is needed. Tracking force and anti-skating are carefully set. An acrylic dust cover is included. The turntable is available in matt black or matt white colour.
With a smart design of the tonearm ProJect were able to combine pure sound quality with an easy setup. Their plug&play design with pre-adjusted tracking force and anti skating has saved costs and is extremely efficient in handling. With no compromise in sound. On contraire, the lightweight and low friction aluminium tonearm is optimized for the Ortofon OM series and will bring out its maximum potential. With intelligent construction and without needless features they were able to keep the price attractive, despite it being hand made in Europe.
The Primary E confidently nails the basics, from an even tonal balance to a delivery that’s clear and clean and spacious enough to keep things coherent. Decent body and substance cling reliably to every frequency, and that’s made all the more enjoyable by a spirited sense of drive and momentum. The Pro-Ject wilfully promotes vinyl's warmth and sweetness, communicating vocals as well as the contrasting sense of effort behind drum beats.
The Primary E has an entertainingly musical performance and its priority seems to be entertainment.
The ProJect Acryl-It platter reduces dust and static to an absolute minimum. By nature acrylic is lighter and has properties similar to vinyl. The acrylic platter uses no mat so the vinyl will couple directly to the platter.Placing the lp on the platter without a mat will not scratch or do harm and you can leave the platter spinning while changing lps.
There are sonic qualities to the Acryl-It platter. The noise floor is dramatically lower and bass articulation is greatly improved. You can follow individual bass notes much more easily than before, and the music comes from an almost silent background.The acrylic platter is a worthwhile addition to a already good deck and you'll hear more into the music. There are non-sonic improvements, as well. No more static pops from lifting the record off that lousy felt mat.
To get an even better improvement out off the acrylic platter you can use a ProJect Clamp-It record clamp. This will sandwich the record to the platter.
Vinyl Records are inherently statically charged and attract dust, fluff and grit like a magnet. To protect that atmospheric sound of playing your precious vinyl we highly recommend you invest in the anti-static AM Vinyl Brush. It will prevent your stylus running over these contaminants and damaging your records.
The AM Pick-Up carbon fibre stylus cleaning brush is suitable for daily cleaning of the stylus. The stylus brush is the best tool for quick maintenance and daily cleaning of your needle tip. Clean it gently removes dust and crustification with thousands of the finest carbon fibres. The result is a clean and good sounding diamond stylus that ensures a perfect reproduction of your records.
The AM Record Cleaner Box Set not only includes the Anti-Static Record Cleaning Brush but also an equally important stylus cleaner to remove the build up on the stylus due to playing your vinyl. The record cleaner fluid and cloth are the perfect solution to cleaning up your record collection and optimising your vinyl listening experience.
