  • Pro-Ject Essential III Digital - Red
  • Kanto YU6Active Speakers - Gloss Red
  • QED Profile Optical 1m Lead

 

The Essential III Digital is part of Pro-Ject Audio Systems' affordable turntable concept series. The Essential III Flexirange allows you to pick exactly which turntable is right for your personal system, without wasting money on unnecessary features for your need.

All models in the FlexiRange are based on the standard Essential III turntable. From the high-quality, acoustically neutral, high-gloss MDF plinth and platter, through the premium bearing and decoupling feet, all the way onto the aluminium tonearm, Ortofon OM 10 cartridge and 9V asynchronous motor; the Essential III is a proven performer that’s more than justified its 5 Star rating from What Hi-Fi? magazine.

The Essential III Digital takes the Essential III design and adds the specially developed phono stage taken from the award-winning Essential III Digital turntable.

The Essential III Digital aims to be a turntable that can be connected straight out of the box to any modern hi-fi system. The integrated phono stage gives users the option between an analogue line level output or a switchable 24-bit/96kHz digital Optical output. The Optical output can be set at 48kHz or 96kHz and uses a high-quality Analogue-Digital Converter (ADC) to send a clean, uninterrupted signal to any digital hub (including a Sonos Playbar when set to 48kHz). So whether listening to music through a soundbar, an AV receiver, a DAC, a digital pre-amplifier or a multi-room system with different input options - the Essential III Digital should fit in flawlessly.

The added benefit of optical transmission is that you can run longer cables without the same signal loss you would experience with long RCA leads. So if you want your turntable to sit away from your amplifier while still sounding great and not using wireless technology, that's now possible!

The switchable analogue output uses a phono stage based upon Pro-Ject's iconic Phono Box design to deliver a brilliant performance from the fitted Ortofon cartridge. For when you're ready to upgrade your system, the whole phono stage can also be bypassed for connection to an upgraded external phono stage.

Like all models in the Essential III FlexiRange, the Essential III Digital is available in a high-gloss red, white or black finish.

Key Turntable Features:

  • High quality MDF gloss-wrapped platter
  • Belt drive mechanism with silicone belt
  • Low vibration synchronous motor
  • Integrated motor control with DC power supply secures silent running
  • Main platter bearing made from stainless steel runs in bronze bushing with Teflon bottom
  • 8.6" aluminium tonearm with sapphire bearings
  • Factory fitted Ortofon OM10 cartridge
  • Built-in MM phono stage
  • Switch to bypass internal phono stage
  • Up-to 24-bit/96kHz optical digital output
  • Switch between 48kHz and 96kHz sample rates
  • Special turntable feet for effective decoupling
  • Lid included

Kanto YU6 Active Speakers
