 5/5 What Hifi - The Elemental is yet another top-class budget deck from Pro-Ject"..  
An Elemental Bargain  Ken Kessler Soundstage 
How cheap is cheap? When is cheap too cheap? Is such a thing even possible?  Not that there's anything cheap about Pro-Ject's Elemental, a turntable so utterly cool and fun and desirable  that it defies reason. But to define with finality the concept of "cheap," let's get it out of the way so you can 
revel in this turntable's brilliance. "Cheap" can mean either "costing very little," or it can mean "nasty," as  when applied to something poorly constructed or even wanton. Trust me: its usage here is strictly about the price.
Plug & Play with Pre-Installed Ortofon OM5e MM Cartridge  
The Pro-Ject Elemental is one of the most basic and easy to set-up turntables we've ever come across. But that doesn't mean it doesn't deliver.
This is a very talented, and capable turntable with good build quality for the price. It's the best budget turntable on the market.
Those who want a good-quality record player at an entry-level price should start here. They won’t be disappointed.
"The Elemental is yet another top-class budget deck from Pro-Ject. It's a fine first step on the vinyl ladder."    What Hi-Fi Sound & Vision magazine. 5-Star review. 
Designed to take on the more usual 'plastic' designs at this price, the Pro-Ject Elemental has the same basic engineering values of their usually much more expensive designs. So, rather than using plastic for the base and platter, Pro-Ject uses high density MDF. This provides many advantages including increased mass and better damping properties; both of which are ideal for providing lower distortion. A further advantage of the high mass platter is that it provides a more consistent speed, helping both pitch and timing consistency.
Despite offering genuine hi-fi sound, the Elemental has been designed to be as unintimidating as possible. From unboxing, all that's needed is for the platter to be placed on the bearing, the belt attached, the stylus guard removed and you're good to play. Both cartridge and counter weight are already fixed so there's no need for complex adjustments.
As you'd expect from the makers of some of the funkiest turntables in the business, the Pro-Ject Elemental destroys the opposition in terms of style just as much as it does with sound. The stripped down aesthetic mirrors the minimalist look of their more expensive turntables and comes with a choice of coloured trim. Choose between classic silver, hot red or ice white for the look that best suits your preference.
True hi-fi quality, style and superb value are simply elemental in making this a class-leading turntable.
Pro-Ject use rigorous standards and lessons learnt in the production of their high end turntables to help deliver class-leading sound quality for the Elemental, making it an outstanding entry level, belt driven turntable.

Best buy turntable with maximum simplicity & outstanding sound quality!  
Pro-Ject has decided to go after the cheap plastic turntable market with an high quality alternative that comes complete with an Ortofon cartridge. The new Elemental table is a real "plug'n'play" all the way. No adjustment of counterweight and antiskating is needed, because both are pre-adjusted. This new straight ultra low mass tonearm is optimised for Ortofon OM cartridge series. All the buyer needs to do is remove it from the box, remove bearing guard, locate the belt around the platter, remove stylus guard and plug it in.  
The only plastic here is the stylus guard!  
The hidden secret to the new table's sonic success, is a central gravity mass point, made from artificial stone and placed directly underneath the platter bearing. It is capable to fully absorb unwanted rumble and motor vibration. This turntable appears to be pure simplicity itself, while maintaining high quality audio standards.  
There isn’t anything digital that sounds close to the Elemental at its price point. Not only that, it delivers the fundamental characteristics of vinyl playback at a previously unheard-of price. There’s no easier, more affordable first step into the format than this  Simply put, the Elemental has set a new benchmark for budget turntables. Pro-Ject has delivered a musically satisfying performance with a budget turntable that anybody can afford. While some may lament the fact they can’t fiddle around with its cartridge/tonearm setup, consider the fact that the Elemental is not made with you in mind. It’s for the music aficionado and vinyl newbie who wants to hear records, but can’t be expected to know (or learn) how to set-up a turntable. For those who want to take their first tentative steps into the format, or if you have records lying in storage that you want to give a second life to, there’s no cheaper or easier solution than this. Buy with confidence - Audiofi Review
“Whether you’re taking your first step on the vinyl ladder, re-discovering your record collection, or simply want to transfer a few old 45s to your iPod, the Pro-Ject elemental is a great place to start. It’s simple to use and sounds better than it has any right to at the price. It’ll outlast any mass-produced plastic turntable. And, perhaps most importantly of all, it won’t ruin your record collection. Highly recommended.” - Audio Apprisal Review
