The Essential III HP is part of Pro-Ject Audio Systems' affordable turntable concept series. The Essential III FlexiRange allows you to pick exactly which turntable is right for your personal system, without wasting money on unnecessary features for your need.
All models in the FlexiRange are based on the standard Essential III turntable. From the high-quality, acoustically neutral, high-gloss MDF plinth and platter, through the premium bearing and decoupling feet, all the way onto the aluminium tonearm, Ortofon OM 10 cartridge and 9V asynchronous motor; the Essential III is a proven performer that’s more than justified its 5 Star rating from What Hi-Fi? magazine.
The Essential III HP takes the Essential III design and adds a phono stage, which offers output for a normal hi-fi system as well as its own built-in headphone amplifier.
The Essential III HP allows for personal listening, when you don't want to play your vinyl through a set of speakers. The 6.3mm output with its own dedicated volume control is capable of driving most modern headphones with ease, and makes listening to music a more intimate experience.
The switchable analogue output uses a phono stage based upon Pro-Ject's iconic Phono Box design to deliver a brilliant performance from the fitted Ortofon cartridge. For when you're ready to upgrade your system, the whole phono stage can also be bypassed for connection to an upgraded external phono stage.
Like all models in the Essential III FlexiRange, the Essential III HP is available in a high-gloss red, white or black finish.
