Pro-Ject Audio Systems
Pro-Ject Audio Systems are widely recognised as one of the finest turntable manufacturers in the world. Their mission is simply to produce the best sounding stereo analogue components at the most competitive prices possible. The current series spans a wide range of price points, with a variety of products targeted to key demographics or to accommodate the modern listener’s unique requirements.
In 2016, Pro-Ject marked their 25th anniversary year with the release of a turntable that combined traditional styling with modern technology; showing their innate ability to keep turntables fresh and interesting at a time when popularity of the vinyl format was at a previously unprecedented level. The Classic proudly sits in the middle of a multi-award winning range of turntables that manage to combine sound performance with the latest technologies and unrivalled style at every level.
Pro-Ject are also obsessed with the importance of stereo playback systems. With modern audio systems often bringing speakers either very close together or into a single enclosure, the real impact and importance of true hi-fi stereo is being lost. That’s why everything Pro-Ject create is made with pure stereo applications in mind; bringing back the true emotional importance of music to audio enthusiasts around the world.
Based in Vienna, Austria, all Pro-Ject Audio Systems turntables are made by a highly skilled workforce with great skill, care and attention in their central-European factory.

The new Elemental table is a real "plug'n'play" turntable. No adjustment of counterweight and anti-skating is needed because both are pre-adjusted. This new straight ultra low mass tonearm is optimised for the Ortofon OM cartridge series. 


All the buyer needs to do is remove it from the box, remove the bearing guard, locate the belt around the platter, remove stylus guard and plug it in. 

The hidden secret to the new 'table's sonic success, is a central gravity mass point, made from artificial stone and placed directly underneath the platter bearing. It is capable to fully absorb unwanted rumble and motor vibration. This turntable appears to be pure simplicity itself while maintaining high quality audio standards.

Key Features:

  • Belt drive system with low vibration DC motor
  • Central gravity mass point made from artificial stone
  • Main platter bearing made from stainless steel runs in bronze bushing with Teflon bottom
  • Low resonance MDF platter with felt mat
  • Factory fitted Ortofon OM5e cartridge
  • 8.6” ultra low mass tonearm with straight arm tube
  • Pre-adjusted tracking force & antiskating
  • Gold-plated RCA contacts & cartridge pins

Comments of Note:
“The bearings are extremely solid, with no play or platter wobble.”

“Lower the stylus to a record, and it soon becomes apparent that the Elemental sounds like no other budget deck.”

“as the opening chords of Halestorm’s cover of ‘Gold Dust Woman’ began to play, I immediately exclaimed something to the effect of “oh yes!!!”… it really was that good”

“The bass lines were beautifully defined, the sound stage was spot on, and the highs had a certain snap to them. Despite a tendency to lean towards brightness, the sound never becomes fatiguing or brash – it just has a certain sparkle in the top end that makes even warn records a joy to hear.”

“Inner groove distortion, a problem that plagues many budget decks was notable here only by its absence. At no point on any LP I played did the distortion become prevalent, even discernible. The sound was clean, crisp and clear from start to finish.”

“Whether you’re taking your first step on the vinyl ladder, re-discovering your record collection, or simply want to transfer a few old 45s to your iPod, the Pro-Ject elemental is a great place to start. It’s simple to use and sounds better than it has any right to at the price. It’ll outlast any mass-produced plastic turntable. And, perhaps most importantly of all, it won’t ruin your record collection. Highly recommended.”
