Pro-Ject Audio Systems are widely recognised as one of the finest turntable manufacturers in the world and has continually evolved their ranges since being founded in 1991. Their mission is to produce the best sounding stereo analogue components at the most competitive prices possible.
A time where digital audio media is on the rise, Pro-Ject aims to interest those to the world of HiFi audio and deliver a real stereo experience at a reasonable price. Their aim is to provide this without overloading their products with unnecessary features, and to restore the true emotional importance of music to audio enthusiasts around the world. Founder and CEO, Heinz Lichtenegger, wants an audience to take pride in their products and have a sense of ownership and interaction that you simply do not get with digital media.
The Pro-Ject 1 was a cost-effective true hi-fi turntable, made at a time when other manufacturers were reverting to cheap plastic alternatives in order to satisfy the dwindling demand. The 1 was made at Pro-Ject’s factory in the Czech Republic (SEV Litovel), at a time when the factory owner was just in the process of shutting down all turntable production. Heinz convinced the factory to make his products, and to this day the same factory is used to produce Pro-Ject’s extensive range of coveted hi-fi turntables.
The primary goal at Pro-ject is to offer superior sound quality where the components and materials are the foundation of the exceptional audio performance. Pro-Ject pride themselves with products that have a long-lasting value and give their customers satisfaction in all their audio needs.
Pro-Ject have carefully constructed each of their turntables tailoring to specific listening needs so no one will miss out on the full vinyl experience. When you have the right platform, you want to hear every detail as the artist intended. Quality records demand quality record players.
Based in Vienna, Austria, all Pro-Ject Audio Systems turntables are manufactured from scratch by a highly skilled workforce in Czech Republic where everything is done by their in-house technicians, including the tiniest screw to the chassis.
Pro-Ject’s cutting edge technologies and machines are able to create visually pleasing products without losing the eye for the finest details with a strict four step quality control procedure ensuring everything works as intended.
Every listener needs different features, so at Pro-Ject you can choose your turntable according to your preferences and listening habits. For example, you may want to listen to music from the record, but you also might want to connect your mobile phone through the stereo system. Pro-Ject provides you with this choice throughout their ranges. In addition, their competitive pricing allows anyone to invest in a turntable including those who may be price conscious.
With gaining popularity and interest, there are now more and more Pro-Ject turntables being distributed to over 80 countries world-wide sharing the passion for vinyl to every customer.
Pro-Ject Audio Systems was founded in 1991 in Vienna, Austria, by Heinz Lichtenegger - a young audio enthusiast who believed that analogue playback was the most cost-effective way to listen to music in audiophile quality
Heinz’s belief in the importance of the turntable came to prominence during a time when vinyl was at death’s door – with the CD revolutionising the wider audio market. However, Heinz stood firm and argued the case for not only analogue replay – but also for the pride and sense of ownership and interaction you simply do not get with digital media. So with this belief, he produced his first turntable – the Pro-Ject 1
From the Pro-Ject 1, all turntables – regardless of price – were made with the same basic principles:
Great Sound, Great Value, Ease of Use, Reliable Build
These core principles have inspired a modern-day product range that spans price points up to £7,000+, with specialist models designed to suit a multitude of technical and “taste” requirements for any audio enthusiast.
Today, analogue music reproduction is once again an important part of the music industry, with vinyl records taking on a new significance. All of Heinz’s efforts over 25+ years of work have been rewarded; but the mission is not over. Pro-Ject Audio Systems will continue to push the importance of quality analogue audio with every new product they develop.
The Pro-Ject turntable range boasts a wide variety of record players, suited to a variety of budgets and applications. Whether you’re new to the world of turntables or a true vinyl enthusiast, there is a Pro-Ject for everyone.
