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.

For the past 175 years, the Vienna Philharmonic has been inseparably linked with European musical tradition from the classical to the contemporary. The Philharmonic‘s performances have gone down in musical history and several masterpieces have been written for the ensemble. When in 1842, conductor and composer Otto Nicolai and music critics August Schmidt and Alfred Julius Becher considered the founding of a professional orchestra for the performance of symphonic repertoire (which until that time had not existed in Vienna), the primary goal was to facilitate high quality performances of the symphonies of Ludwig van Beethoven. From the beginning, this undertaking found willing partners in the members of the Imperial Court Opera Orchestra.

Uniquely, 175 – The Vienna Philharmonic Recordplayer is fashioned from material found in musical instruments. The wooden chassis and the lacquer of the 175 correspond to that of a violin. The gilded metal chassis is based on the brass instruments of the orchestra, while the fingerlift comes from a clarinet flap. Even the knob for switching on and changing speeds comes from a flute button. The technical heart of the turntable is the latest in record player design from Pro-Ject Audio Systems, based on Pro-Ject’s multi-award-winning model, “The Classic.” The design team has improved every technical detail, and produced the new model according to Pro-Ject’s highest standard of build quality, with the tightest tolerances.

Supplied with the 175 is a hand-selected cartridge, the result of a collabo- ration with Ortofon, based on their top-of-the-line Cadenza series. The housing of the cartridge is made from a very high damping alloy, carefully polished to match the surface of the turntable. The outcome is an extremely mellifluous sound, reflecting the goal of this collaboration: to approximate as closely as possible the sound of the world-famous Vienna Philharmonic. A limited edition series of 175 samples, the 175 offers music aficionados a unique collector‘s item in a classical design. It is available in two colours: Dark Cello or Bright Violin. At the back of the turntable is a plaque with the serial number and the name of the owner.

  • Only 175 will be made worldwide, and each turntable is handcrafted over a 2 month period
  • Personalised plaque on the rear of the turntable including the serial number and name of the owner
  • Delivered in a wooden box, and even the accessories are delivered in an exclusive wooden case.
