The perfect way to get started with vinyl

With well-crafted components and a simple, classic design, the Primary E Phono offers the kind of build quality usually associated with more expensive models to help even vinyl newcomers get the most out of their records. Even better, the Primary E Phono comes with an on-board switchable phono stage, as well as the counterweight and anti-skating weight pre-set, so plugging in your turntable and getting records playing has never been easier.

Need a complete sound system?

We're talking an all-in-one, compact hi-fi system with everything you need to get started. Delighting in your vinyl collection has never been easier.

Check out the Juke Box E Hi-Fi Set, which is perfect for someone getting into vinyl as well as true aficionados. The set includes the Juke Box E turntable and Speaker Box 5 speakers, giving you everything you need to start spinning. 

Switchable phonostage on board

The Primary E Phono includes an on-board switchable moving magnet phono stage (only available in Black finish). This means that the turntable is ready-to-go out of the box, but also has the flexibility for the customer to upgrade their phono stage in the future. This could be a separate phonostage, or an in-built phono in their existing amplifier.

Ortofon cartridge

With a pre-fitted cartridge made by Ortofon, the leading name in turntable cartridges, the Primary E Phono has the warmth and precision to reveal new details in your favourite records, and the delicate touch to keep your records sounding great play after play.

Set up and ready to go out of the box

Setting up a turntable can be a time-consuming process, but the Primary E Phono saves you the hassle of balancing your tonearm so that you can get straight into playing records. The counterweight and anti-skating weights are pre-set out of the box, making setup a simple plug-and-play affair.

Industry Reviews

Pro-Ject has revised a budget deck ... and has succeeded on every front. The Primary E confidently nails the basics, from an even tonal balance to a delivery that’s clear and clean and spacious enough to keep things coherent. It is sensitive to the sullenness of the band’s instrumentals, demonstrating levels of detail and precision that are more than passable in the company of budget amplification and speakers.

Set up is a breeze. From opening the box to spinning your first record on the Primary E, even if you have never so much as laid a finger on a record player before, should be no more than ten minutes. Pro-Ject has been refining their own unboxing process for the best part of twenty years now and the process has been refined to an art. There are very few turntables that are simpler to get up and running than this one.

Musical Perfection During Covid19 Times

To All At Pro Ject Audio...Thank You For Producing An Amazing Product In The Primary E Phono Turntable! It Is A Well Made, Athesiastiacally Pleasing Turntable That Provides Excellent Tonal Quality Along With The Ability To Play Any Vinyl Record (33/45 Speed) Without Any Risk Of Damage. I Personally Have Many Highly Collectable Albums (Beatles, Carpenters, Supertramp Just To Name A Few) That Are Now Very Hard To Find On CD...And Almost Impossible In Vinyl.....I Wound Not Risk My Valuable Collection Being Played On Anything Other Than The Pro Ject Range. Yes, there are plenty of more Esoteric and Expensive Turntables Out There, But I Want To Listen To Music, NOT Have To Set Weights, Turntable Speeds, Stylus Pressure etc....This Is What Makes Pro Ject Turntables So Good..Everything Is Professionally Pre Set Prior To Being packed And Sent Out. The Ability To Use A Dedicated Turntable Input (Phono) Or A Regular Line In (Aux) Is Great, Most Hi Fi Systems Or Amplifiers Have One Or The Other On Board, So Set Up Is Easier Than Ordering Take Out Meals!. Again, To The Pro Ject Audio Team Thank You For An Amazing Product....My Knack LP (1979) Also Thanks You!

Broken belt

Belt was faulty and broke pretty much straight away. I've contacted support and a replacement one is on its way. The product looks awesome and I would still recommend it, provided that the new belt works fine
