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 VT-E BT is Pro-Ject’s first ever vertical turntable with phono stage and bluetooth transmitter. Its innovative design makes it a unique offering in the market. Not only can it be installed easily on a desktop or a wall, but VT-E BT is also available in three different finishes and looks like nothing else you've seen before.

The VT-E BT is based on the popular Elemental turntable, which has won plaudits around the world for its great sound and affordable price. Like the Elemental, the VT-E BT has a pre-set tonearm and cartridge, so all you need to do to get spinning is install the belt and platter, then plug it into your turntable-ready hi-fi system. Turntable set-up does not need to be complicated or arduous, and VT-E BT proves that.

The plinth and platter are made from acoustically neutral medium-density fibreboard, and the supplied record clamp ensures the record does not slip on the spindle during playback. When mounting on a desk, the supplied feet and back-support create a sturdy tripod that isolates well from external vibrations. Alternatively when mounting on a wall the supplied mounting kit ensures a reliable fixing to the wall’s surface.

The VT-E BT’s motor is the same proven design as found in other Pro-Ject turntables, and boasts a built-in AC generator for reliable speed stability and minimal noise. The tonearm is the same aluminium design found on the Elemental, but its specially-designed spring mechanism allows for accurate tracking of the record, even though it’s being played vertically. The VT-E BT is equipped with an integrated switchable phonostage and bluetooth transmitter offering flexibility for wired or wireless play back of your vinyl records.

The VT-E BT is available in gloss black, red or white finish, and is supplied with all required accessories.

Please Note: The VT-E BT L (left-handed version) is currently only available to special order in the UK. Contact Us for more information.

Whether you are considering buying a new Hi-Fi or replacing your old one, the award winning WS80i wireless system will fit all of your needs and more.

Stylish looks coupled with a luxurious finish combine with stunning performance to make the WS80i stand out in its field. Uniquely the system also offers flexibility as the audio signal from your source device can be sent wirelessly to the loudspeakers located anywhere in your home. These are active loudspeakers, no need for external amplification as the amplifier is integral to the loudspeaker.

What exactly does it do?

This wireless speaker system has been designed to offer flexibility. The quality of the audio transmission is ideal for those wishing to use the speakers as their main source of listening. For example, by using the transmitter connected to a CD player, the signal can be sent wirelessly to the active speakers situated in "conventional" loudspeaker positions. Alternatively you may wish to locate the speakers elsewhere in the home and use with a laptop or MP3 player. 

So is it completely wireless?

Not quite, as the loudspeakers have built in amplification each speaker has to be connected to mains power, apart from that no wires!. Our system uses STS wireless technology operating at 2.4GHz with a sampling rate of 48.1 KHz (accepted CD quality). It is extremely robust and is not prone to interference from microwave ovens, telephones or wireless networks. 

The WS80i wireless system is supplied with two active speakers, a transmitter and multi-function remote control plus all the necessary accessories to enable you to listen to your favourite music.

The speakers are covered with faux leather, available in black or white with alternate colour stitching to offer a stylish and luxurious finish. The Transmitter, though small and compact is the hub of the system. Once connected to your source device it will send the audio signal to the loudspeakers providing CD quality sound.

WS80i is supplied as a colour matched system with the option of adding black or white speaker stands.

As both WS80 speakers are fitted with a signal receiver there are no interconnecting wires as with conventional speaker set ups. This ensures a clean, wire free solution for your home or office. Signal range is up to 25 metres.

Compliment your WS80 loudspeakers by placing them on the specifically designed DUET stands for optimum listening position. Available in black or white and incorporating (mains) cable management features.

Is it complicated to set up?

Not at all, the easiest way to send music wirelessly around the home is to connect the transmitter directly to your PC or MAC via the USB plug. The computer will identify the wireless USB transmitter as a USB headset and send music through digitally to the active loudspeakers. However the audio analogue input also allows any stereo analogue audio source to be fed via the transmitter to the wireless speakers. Up-to three different zones can be used with one transmitter and as many active wireless speakers as needed can be added.

Once turned on the active speakers are "paired" with the transmitter at the press of a button. The simplest way to understand the concept is that the transmitter will send music wirelessly from any source device fitted with USB, headphone socket or RCA line out to the active speakers within 25 metres of the source device.
