Forget about all-in-one turntables, soundbars & active speakers
What you really want is a hi-fi system.
This pack is designed for the true vinyl aficionado. With separate components, not only do you get better sound, but you have the flexibility to upgrade elements of this system later down the track. We like to call it future-proof.
Bluetooth as well!
This system doesn't just play records either. It has an amplifier with Bluetooth on-board too.
For those days where you can't make it off the couch to change the record and want the convenience of streaming music straight from your phone.
So, what's included?
- Primary E Phono turntable
- Stereo Box S2 BT amplifier
- Speaker Box 5 speakers
- All necessary cables
The dense MDF used to make the Essential III turntable means that it is heavier than the Primary E turntable of the current pack you are viewing. Minimal vibration is transferred into your music and the result is a clean & rhythmic sound with excellent bass attack.
To finish the turntable, a high gloss, 8-layer piano black paint is then applied for a showroom quality shine.
The MaiA S2 is still considered an ultra-compact integrated amplifier, in saying that, it is twice the width of the Stereo Box S2 BT. What you get for this jump in size is a whole slew of extras. More power (aka the ability to play louder music) and the addition of digital inputs, like Coax, USB, and Optical for use with TV, Computers, Streamers and CD Players.Speaker Box 5
The Speaker Box 5 are the exact same set of speakers as the Perfect Primary Pack, but in the Essential Ensemble Pack their 8-layer high gloss paint finish now matches the Essential III Turntable. You will also get some extra volume and bass out of these speakers as they are now paired with a larger amplifier, the MaiA S2.
Turntable: Primary E Phono
With a well-crafted, classic design, the Primary E Phono offers the kind of build quality usually associated with more expensive models.
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.
Amplifier: Stereo Box S2 BT
Offering up an impressive amount of power for it's size, the Pro-Ject Stereo Box S2 BT is perfect for a desktop workspace, bedroom or a small living room.
Packing 2 AUX inputs and Bluetooth streaming into a housing that’s smaller than a CD, the Pro-Ject Stereo Box S2 BT is full of surprises. You'll even be able to connect to your TV or computer into the spare input.
Speakers: Speaker Box 5
A stylish addition to any living space, you can't beat the classic lines of the Pro-Ject Speaker Box 5. Utilizing a 2-way monitor speaker design, the slick look is maintained because the bass reflex system is on back side.
The result? Tight and clear bass, minimalist looks and outstanding performance for their size.
What's in the box?
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.Read More
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.Read More
Looks and sounds fantastic right out of the box, super easy to set up and I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking to get into records.
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
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
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
Fantastic experience with the Pro-Ject Audio team. The customer service went even better. Will be my first visit when looking for more audio tech and upgrades! Highly recommended!
