Once you have the information you need, we want to make the purchase process as simple as possible. So we give you up-to three options on how to buy our products.
Our preferred option is for you to visit a nearby store and buy what you need locally.

To find your local retailer, either click the 'Buy In-Store' button on your product page for exactly the right recommendation, or head to our comprehensive Where To Buy tool.
If you want the added convenience of only having to pop-in to store when you know the product you want has arrived, you can use our Click & Collect-style checkout process. With Buy Now, Collect Locally, your purchase takes place online and the product is then delivered direct to your local supporting retailer; ready for you to collect when you're ready.

Though vinyl is one of our most cherished and enjoyed music platforms, the equipment used to playback records is - by its very nature - prone to issues and problems that can disrupt your experience. One of the most common issues reported to us is mains hum, and though this can be a problem it is almost always not down to a faulty turntable; instead it's because there is not a strong enough 'true' earth in your system.
All turntables are prone to attract some level of noise, however, most (like all Pro-Ject record players) are engineered to reduce this tendency as much as possible - so you often only hear it with the amplifier volume on maximum and no record playing. When there is a noise that's audible during normal playback it is often due to poor grounding (even with the supplied ground lead linking the turntable to your phono stage/amplifier), and the problem is typically environmental.
There are lots of messy or impractical solutions to try and find an alternative earth-point, but we've found that running an additional earth lead to another grounding point will provide a great solution in most instances. That point could be a dedicated mains plug with just the earth pin connected to the ground lead and both other pins removed, or it could be your system's amplifier, or even a nearby radiator. Each installation is unique, but hopefully these cables can help.
