Hi-Fi Choice (November 2016) reviews Pro-Ject Audio Systems new and award winning The Classic 25th Anniversary turntable

Comments of Note:
“I lower the stylus onto a recording of Tchaikovsky’s Cossack Dance from Mazeppa played by the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra. This lively performance is both joyful and sprightly and the sound is delightfully realistic in my listening room, highlighting just how good a test this Telarc LP is for a full orchestra.”
Playing: Herb Alpert And The Tijuana Brass playing Our Day Will Come - “The trumpet consistently provides a real test for any cartridge and I’m pleased to note that it sounds well balanced and clear here. But what strikes me most is the timing and tempo, which are absolutely spot on. All of the musicians involved in this album are known for being at the top of their game and the Pro-Ject certainly does their performance proud.”
Playing: Barbra Streisand - I Don’t Break Easily - “The clarity of her voice is very good indeed…”
“The Classic is certainly a sophisticated turntable and its timeless elegance is brought right up to date by the carbon fibre construction of the tonearm. This arm matches well with the supplied Ortofon 2M Silver cartridge and sound-wise it turns in a great performance that’s particularly at home with vocals and jazz. All in all, The Classic is a perfect way to mark a 25th anniversary.”

Hi-Fi News (August 2016) reviews Pro-Ject Audio Systems new and award winning The Classic 25th Anniversary turntable

Comments of Note:
“The Classic served up a wealth of information and ordered it beautifully…”
“Vocalists were rendered with plenty of scale and located neatly to the fore of the action behind them.”
“The bass that was present, however, was beyond reproach in terms of detail, texture and pin-sharp timing.”
“rhythms were tracked with rail-like security ensuring the deck brought all kinds of songs to life with ease.”
“The Reggae-esque bassline underpinning The Wave Pictures’ ‘Red Cloud Road (Part A)’ from their EP Helen skipped along with an infectious gaiety but also with an impeccable level of detail around each note. This wasn’t just a bass guitar off in the background somewhere being idly strummed: it was right at the heart of the action and being played with conviction.”
“At the top end, The Classic package also turned in a highly capable performance.”
“By designing something positively affordable for its quarter-century, Pro-Ject has come up with a turntable that can hold its head high for the celebration.”
“The Classic is simply and neatly styled and turns in an excellent performance. There is plenty of scope to upgrade it further and I can see it winning many friends. Equally, I can’t wait to see what the company has up its sleeve in five years time for its 30th!”

Pro-Ject Audio Systems new The Classic 25th Anniversary turntable in Rosenut finish

To celebrate their 25 year anniversary, Pro-Ject Audio Systyems are combining traditional design with modern technology in a brand new turntable model. The aptly named 'Classic' is a sleek, compact and elegant turntable based around the "frame" design popularised by the likes of Thorens and Linn in the 1950's and 60's, but implemented with the innovative technologies Pro-Ject have become known for.

The two-plinth design allows the motor to sit in a separate plinth to the bearing and tonearm, reducing the unwanted transference of electrical and mechanical noise. The two medium-density fibre plinth sections are isolated from each-other with the use of specially selected Thermo-Plastic Elastomers (TPE). The use of TPE, rather than the spring-loaded method of historical designs, makes The Classic effortlessly simple to set up while retaining anti-resonance properties.

Image
Pro-Ject Audio Systems The Classic 25th Anniversary turntable

The idea of anti-resonant structures also carries through to The Classic's platter. The general layout was inspired by the iconic Debut platter assembly, but the main platter has been significantly upgraded to a special aluminium alloy version which is internally lined with TPE damping. The sub-platter and bearing are also similar to the Debut design, but the tolerances are far tighter for The Classic, resulting in a higher-quality performance.

Image
Pro-Ject Audio Systems The Classic 25th Anniversary turntable

The Classic also boasts a radical new tonearm design, inspired by the production processes developed for the award-winning RPM 3 Carbon turntable. The tonearm tube is made from a sandwich composite of carbon and aluminium. The carbon fibre gives the arm rigidity, speed and reduced mass, while the aluminium delivers better overall damping. The tube is then supported by a new bearing assembly with ultra-low friction and wider movement for improved tracking. The nickel-plated counterweight not only looks fantastic, it's also TPE-damped to ensure the arm remains acoustically neutral. The Classic tonearm can also be VTA and azimuth adjusted to suit almost any modern pick-up cartridge.

The Classic is supplied as standard with the Ortofon 2M Silver cartridge, which has been developed exclusively for Pro-Ject Audio Systems. This popular moving-magnet design allows The Classic to perform to a high standard right out of the box, and also offers upgrade options as your musical journey continues. The Classic is also supplied with a fitted dust cover, a junction box for easy cable upgrades and the Connect-IT E RCA cables. The three finishes (Eucalyptus (Black), Rosenut and Walnut) also mean The Classic can fit into any decor.

Pro-Ject Audio Systems The Classic 25th Anniversary turntable Key Features:

• Belt drive anniversary turntable with multi-plinth design
• MDF plinths (top plinth has metal layer 'sandwich' finish) separated by TPE suspension

Pro-Ject Audio Systems Primary turntable

Image
Pro-Ject Audio Systems Primary turntable in Black finish

If you thought that setting up a hi-fi quality turntable was complicated, the Pro-Ject Primary sets out to disprove that theory. It does this by effectively combining the strong points of two other award-winning turntables from the Pro-Ject range; the Elemental and the Essential II.

Image
Pro-Ject Audio Systems Primary turntable in White finish

Image
Pro-Ject Audio Systems Primary turntable in Red finish

Image

Like the Elemental, the Primary uses an 8.6” aluminium tonearm with sapphire bearings for optimal tracking. The tonearm is pre-configured for the supplied Ortofon OM 5E pick-up cartridge, so there’s no need to set-up the tracking force or anti-skate during installation. The motor is also the same perimeter belt-drive type, with a low-vibration synchronous motor that’s controlled by a built-in regulator for improved speed stability.

Where the Primary takes from the Essential II is in the traditional design layout. It shares the Essential II’s high-quality MDF finish, and the acoustically neutral MDF platter/felt mat platform. The plinth is available in matte black, red or white finish, and the added benefit of this layout is in the included detachable dust cover.

The Primary is terminated with RCA cables for direct connection to a Moving-Magnet phono stage. A separate version with a built-in USB phono stage is also available.

The Primary turntable sets out to prove that hi-fi quality turntables don’t need to be complicated. Simply install the belt and connect it to a system in order to enjoy vinyl playback on an affordable device that won’t hurt your records.

What Hi-Fi reviews Pro-Ject Audio Systems Primary turntable

"Benefiting from trickle-down technology developed for its costlier RPM-series turntables, this new deck features a host of engineering innovations to boost its sound. The V-shaped chassis and dynamically-balanced platter are both fashioned from MDF, the latter with a mat made from recycled LP vinyl, while the outboard 15V AC motor is driven by a compact synthesised power supply. The new 10in S-shaped tonearm is a key feature, comprising a damped alloy tube surrounded by a resin and carbon-fibre mix. This, in turn, carries a a custom silver-wired version of Ortofon's classic 2M moving-magnet cartridge, the final ingredient in what is a deeply impressive deck offering a remarkably stable and foot-tapping sound."

The latest edition to the RPM range of turntables follows on from where the hugely popular Genie 3 left off. The RPM 3 Carbon boasts a number of improvements from its sibling, the new RPM 1 Carbon.

The new RPM 3 Carbon design has been upgraded to significantly reduce resonance across the turntable. While maintaining the instantly recognisable shape, this turntable boasts improvements in the tonearm, bearing, and motor.

The brand new tonearm is a carbon fibre/aluminium resin construct, made using special heat and pressure treatments. The result of this new design is a tonearm that is more solid and anti-resonant than ever before at this price, while maintaining a light weight. The arm is finished off with a pre-fitted Ortofon 2M Silver cartridge and a new magnetic anti-skate mechanism. The improved counterweight also utilises TPE damping in the form of an anti-resonant ring around the fixing point.

The new vinyl topped sandwich platter creates the perfect surface for your vinyl to play on with no need for a mat.

The completely decoupled motor is based upon the same design as the Xpression Carbon, powered by an AC generator that's connected to the new DC power supply. The inverted main bearing now utilises a ceramic ball, offering a more fluid and consistent platter rotation than ever before.

Available in Red, White or Black High Gloss finishes, the RPM 3 Carbon is a turntable package that offers truly phenomenal value for money.

Key Features:

• Precision belt drive using synchronous motor
• Ultra-precision DC-driven AC generator motor power
• Inverted platter bearing with ceramic ball

• 10” S-shaped tonearm made from carbon, aluminium, resin utilising special heat and pressure treatments

YouTube video - Pro-Ject Audio Systems The Classic SB Superpack turntable

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Itghd-zPh4

Pro-Ject Audio Systems The Classic SB Superpack turntable is at Musicraft (Derby)

To celebrate their 25 year anniversary, Pro-Ject Audio are combining traditional design with modern technology in a brand new turntable model. The aptly named 'Classic' is a sleek, compact and elegant turntable based around the "frame" design popularised by the likes of Thorens and Linn in the 1950's and 60's, but implemented with the innovative technologies Pro-Ject have become known for.

The Classic turntable was introduced to high-praise and multiple awards in 2016. Due to the success of the original, Pro-Ject Audio Systems have decided to build a package, which includes some improvements on the original design for vinyl enthusiasts looking for a complete high-end solution.

The Classic SB SuperPack boasts the same elegant “frame” design as the original, with the only technical and visual change to the turntable found in the new integrated speed controller. This intuitive single button control provides Start/Stop and Speed-Change control for the motor for effortless changing between 33 and 45 RPM. The included additional drive belt also allows for 78 RPM rotation, when placed around the larger rung of the pulley.

As well as providing convenience, the speed generator also controls the performance of the motor, ensuring minimal noise and resonance is generated and transferred to the turntable. This design focus on minimal interference is carried through into the two-plinth design, where Thermo Plastic Elastomer (TPE) suspension balls decouple the main bearing and the tonearm from the motor.

The platter configuration of The Classic SB SuperPack is the same as the original, with a hidden sub-platter driving the special aluminium main platter. However, the The Classic SB Superpack includes an upgraded Leather-IT platter mat, rather than a standard felt design. Leather offers improved characteristics when compared to felt, and when used on The Classic opens up a more musical, engaging sound performance. This is then further improved by the included Clamp-IT record clamp. Record clamps are a popular accessory amongst modern vinyl enthusiasts, reducing record slip during playback and tightening up the bass performance with greater control and clarity.

The Classic SB SuperPack also boasts the same tonearm as the original model. The Classic Tonearm uses a one-piece conical tube made from aluminium, wrapped in a layer of carbon fibre. The carbon fibre keeps the tonearm light and stiff, while the aluminium adds improved damping and grounding. The bearing assembly is precision engineered, and includes a new bottom bearing that facilitates a much freer movement of the tonearm. The striking new nickel-finished counterweight is also TPE-damped, for improved performance.

The ability of The Classic Tonearm is so high, that The Classic SB SuperPack is supplied with an Ortofon Quintet Red Moving Coil cartridge. Offering a vastly improved performance compared to the original model’s 2M Silver cartridge, the Quintet Red is a well-rounded performer that works impressively across musical genres.

Finally, The Classic SB SuperPack is also supplied with upgraded RCA cables. The Pro-Ject Connect-IT CC RCA are designed for high-end turntable use – offering optimal signal transfer and shielding technology, to effectively reduce noise and maintain the original audio signal’s integrity.

In all other aspects The Classic SB SuperPack is the same as The Classic, benefiting from the advanced technologies that have made Pro-Ject Audio Systems a leader in the vinyl hi-fi market. The Classic SB SuperPack is a one-stop high-end solution for music enthusiasts who liked the design and technology of the original but are looking for a complete, one-stop high-end solution.

The Classic and The Classic SB SuperPack turntables are available in Eucalyptus, Rosenut or Walnut finishes. They are supplied as standard with all necessary set-up tools and a fitted dust cover.
