The Essential 2 Digital turntable is available in a black or white high gloss finish. This turntable has all the award winning style and sound quality of the standard Essential but with the added bonus of a phono stage complete with an optical output!

The Essential 2 Digital aims to be the first turntable that can be connected straight out of the box to any hi-fi system without a specific turntable input! The brand new 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 a digital input. This unique feature allows the user to plug the turntable into any optical input on a PC/Mac for archiving or directly into a sound bar or other device for playback as well as utilizing the RCA outputs to connect to a conventional Hifi system.

The analogue output uses a phono stage based upon Pro-Ject's discrete Phono Box designs to deliver a superb performance from the fitted Ortofon cartridge.
