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.

Essential III: Sgt. Pepper‘s Drum

On June 1st, 2017, the iconic album Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band turned fifty years old. To mark the occasion, The Beatles announced three Anniversary Editions of the album in association with Apple Corps Ltd., Capitol and USM. Newly mixed by Giles Martin and Sam Okell in both stereo and 5.1 surround audio, amongst the anniversary releases is a Double LP Deluxe Vinyl edition that deserves to only be played on the best turntables available. So to support the release, Pro-Ject Audio Systems released a special edition version of the Essential III turntable, decorated with commemorative Sgt. Pepper imagery.

The Essential III has been an international hit since its release in late-2016. Following on from the multi-award winning MK II model, the Essential III combines style and substance into an enviably affordable package. After being re-worked earlier in 2017 as the George Harrison Record Player, the Essential III is now getting the Sgt. Pepper treatment.

The Essential III: Sgt. Pepper’s Drum is a non-limited, special edition release, designed to give more Beatles fans access to high-quality audio equipment emblazoned with the iconic group’s imagery. The striking blue MDF plinth boasts a vintage print to the top-panel, allowing the turntable to stand out from the crowd. Then, in glorious multi-colour, the iconic Sgt. Pepper’s drum kit logo is printed in the middle of the plinth. Adding an understated subtlety to the overall appearance, the frosted matte acrylic platter helps reveal the drum skin print underneath.

Aside from the cosmetic differences and the inclusion of an acrylic platter, all other characteristics of the turntable match the Essential III design. From the sleek MDF plinth, through the high-grade motor with aluminium pulley and precision-engineered main bearing, and onto the 8.6” aluminium tonearm with Ortofon OM 10 cartridge. The Essential III is a remarkable piece of affordable audiophilia.

  • Custom-designed MDF plinth with Sgt. Pepper inspired artwork

  • Factory-fitted Ortofon OM 10 moving magnet cartridge
