The Essential III is pre-fitted with an 8.6” aluminium tonearm for its lightweight, rigid characteristics. The gimbal bearing assembly uses sapphire bearings to allow for smooth tracking across a record, and the supplied counterweight allows for a variety of premium pick-up cartridges to be installed. The tonearm is supplied with an Ortofon OM 10 cartridge pre-fitted. Superior to the Essential II’s OM 5E cartridge, the OM 10 uses an elliptical profile and precision micro-mechanics to deliver a nice, full soundstage with plenty of impact.
The Essential III is a significant step forward for vinyl enthusiasts on a budget. The sound and the style have been pushed to new heights, all for a price that defies belief.

The Speaker Box 5 from Box Design by Pro-Ject Audio are audiophile two-way monitor speakers which use a bass reflex system. Their construction and design specification ensures they deliver a tight and clear bass, with good accuracy and soundstaging in the mids and highs.
These speakers are optimised for use with other Box Design or Pro-Ject Audio Systems components - but they do sound great with any other small systems.
Magnetically shielded, so the speakers can be placed close to a TV-set
