A very well made Turntable from Pro-Ject. And absolutely beautiful! I've been playing this for the past week and here is what I've experienced. First of all, I immediately replaced the Ortofon Cartridge with an Audio Technica AT120E. That cart is out of production now, being superceded with the AT120EB, which is a lesser performing cartridge, the specs aren't the same as the original. I've had experience over the last 5 years with the original 120E and it IS a great sounding cart with incredible tracking. The Ortofon doesn't have a 'nude' stylus and thus I didn't even want to mess around with that. So off it went and the 120E went on. The results are, for a $600 turntable, pretty amazing sound wise. I couldn't ask for more and the cart hasn't even broken 'IN' yet. One thing, actually TWO things, after playing the TT for about a week, pull the platter off, get some warm dishwater going with 'Dawn' liquid, get a 100% cotton dishcloth and wring it out, then pull...
I have had this TT for some time now. All I can say is that everything has been solid. No issues with humming that other people have commented on. Everything sounds so much more detailed and clear. The build is exceptional and the quality of materials is top notch for a TT in this price point. If you are thinking about buying a new TT, buy this you won't be sorry.
I have what you could call a medium to high end DAC and Transport that combined retails for $12k in the USA. It is well reviewed offering latest Direct stream technology. This is matched with a high current power amp, a 2a3 tube pre amp and heavily modified magnepan 3.6. The cables are high end and all the electronics have been modified to protect from EMF and RF. This set up took me years of investment. I purchased the. Project Esprit as my wife has a box of LPs she wanted to revisit. A also bought a recommended phono amp from this site as my pre did not have this feature. I was not expecting great things, however this player is good, very good. I'm not gonna go into the digital to Vinyl argument here but believe me this product delivers outstanding audio quality for the money. It does not have the deepest or smoothest bass, the highs are a little brittle but the all important mid range is very good indeed, perhaps better than the digital front end. It sounds real, good separation,...
