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.

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.

Switchable phonostage on board

The Primary E Phono includes an on-board switchable moving magnet phono stage. 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.

Simple speed control

Play both 33rpm & 45rpm records with the simple manual speed control. Simply switch the drive belt onto the pulley suitable for your records.

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.

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

Awesome little Package

Fitted the bill perfectly as a compact high quality turntable and speaker combo. Very classy and great sound. Streaming via Bluetooth an added bonus. Great addition to our apartment

Awesome ProJect Primary E

Bought a ProJect Primary E for a second ‘back to basics’ system to spin old vinyl. It arrived superbly packed and built and was virtually ‘plug and play’. The sonics exceeded my expectation - set it up with a well isolated mdf plinth with sorbothane feet and played through an external phono stage. The musical experience is highly immersive, rythmically foot tapping and addictive with very good tonal balance throughout. Highly recommended for those planning to dip their toes into vinyl and a bargain to boot ! 5 stars in my book
