Pro-Ject has released their new entry level player, but to call this star "budget" implies you are about to make the wrong assumption about this player's quality. It is a legend in its own lifetime with a retail of just $499.00 it is clearly the best value record player in NZ.
Like its bigger brother, the Debut III, the Essential comes with a clear acrylic cover, but departs from Pro-Ject tradition by adding a unipivot tonearm.
Already with rave reviews and a What Hi-Fi Five Star review with comments like:
"The Essential is yet another excellent budget Pro-Ject. There's little to complain about here."
