The album is widely regarded as a milestone of music history in terms of commercial success as well as artistic breakthrough. No other album has been produced with such high efforts!
This special edition design of Pro-Ject's Essential III turntable shows the base drum of the infamous album. Many myths and theories have been created because of this album and especially because of its cover. In celebration of the 50th anniversary jubilee of this unique masterwork, Pro-Ject wants to offer all fans of this legendary album the opportunity to give their beloved record an additional place in their living room.
Pro-Ject's Essential III turntable offers a variety of enhancements compared to its successful predecessor, the Essential II. The III's upgrades include a diamond-cut aluminum drive pulley, a resonance-optimized acrylic main platter, and an MDF chassis. The refined, high-precision platter bearing has significantly lower tolerances than Essential II. And yet, the performance-packed Essential III is now Pro-Ject's audiophile entry-level turntable. You just can't do better for the price.
The setup is very simple, and this complete package comes with tonearm, cartridge, and other essential accessories.
Features for Accurate Playback
A resonance-optimized acrylic platter helps to quell plinth vibration. An integrated quiet running DC-powered synchronous motor control minimizes motor vibration and guarantees speed stability. The Essential III incorporates a diamond cut aluminum drive pulley and a low tolerance platter bearing with stainless steel spindle for low wow-and-flutter and speed accuracy.
Quality Tonearm and Cartridge Included
A single-piece fixed headshell 8.6 aluminum tonearm with sapphire bearings and rigid aluminum tube provides superb tracking and resonance reduction. Accurate adjustment cartridge azimuth is easily accomplished.
The Essential III is ready for you to start enjoying music almost as soon as you get it out of the box. Unlike turntables that require lots of fussy installation steps, the Essential III is easy to set up. Equipped with the high-quality OM10 moving magnet cartridge by the turntable cartridge pioneer, Ortofon, Essential III delivers lively, balanced and highly involving sound that will delight every vinyl lover.
Dustcover and Cable Included
The Essential II turntable also includes chassis-fitted RCA interconnect jacks and comes with a 1.0 meter Connect-It E stereo RCA cable and an attractive dust cover. Essential III comes in aesthetically pleasing high gloss black, red, or white finishes.
