The Pro-Ject Essential Mk3 takes everything that was great about the ProJect Essential Mk2 and adds over £100 worth of upgrades to create a truly fabulous deck for an extremely modest increase in price.


The Essential Mk3 retains the simple yet elegant plinth of the Essential Mk2. Constructed from high-quality MDF for its acoustically neutral character, and now wrapped in a high-gloss paint finish (available in red, white or black); the main structure combines both elegance and functionality. The plinth is then mounted on three anti-vibration feet, for effective decoupling from the surface on which the turntable is placed.

One of the most obvious changes with the new model is in the use of an upgraded Acryl-IT E platter offering an inert platform for your vinyl records to reduce the unwanted effects of resonance during playback.

The Essential Mk3 uses the same 9V motor as its predecessor, but it’s also the first to use a new integrated grounding link that dramatically reduces electrical interference to unprecedented low levels. The motor is a premium, synchronous AC design that’s driven by a built-in signal generator, ensuring optimal speed stability and is fitted with a high precision aluminium pulley.

The Essential Mk3 is pre-fitted with an 8.6” aluminium tonearm for its lightweight, rigid characteristics. The gimbal bearing assembly uses sapphire bearings to allow for smooth tracking and the supplied counterweight allows for a variety of cartridges to be installed. The tonearm is supplied with an Ortofon OM10 cartridge giving better soundstage and dynamics than the OM5 fitted to previous models.
