Elemental is a top-value turntable with maximum simplicity and outstanding sound quality! Pro-Ject has decided to go after the cheap plastic turntable market with a high quality alternative that comes complete with an Ortofon cartridge. The Elemental is “plug’n’play” all the way. No adjustment of the counterweight nor antiskating is needed because both are pre-adjusted at the factory. The straight ultra-low-mass tonearm is optimized for the Ortofon OM cartridge series. All the you need to do is remove it from the box, remove the bearing guard, install the belt around the platter, remove stylus guard, and plug it in!
The hidden secret to the Elemental's sonic success is a central gravity mass point made from artificial stone and placed directly underneath the platter bearing. It is capable of fully absorbing unwanted rumble and motor vibration. This turntable appears to be pure simplicity itself, while maintaining high quality audio standards.
