Pro-Ject Essential III Digital Turntable

 

The Essential III Digital takes the Essential III design and adds the specially developed phono stage taken from the award-winning Essential II 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 24-bit/96kHz digital Optical output. The Optical output uses a high-quality Analogue-Digital Converter (ADC) to send a clean, uninterrupted signal to any digital hub. 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 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.

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!

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