Hi-Fi Choice reviews the Primary E

UK, 10.2018:
What is most surprising about the Primary E, is its ability to deliver a genuinely satisfying musical performance at such a very attractive price and make it an ideal turntable for any new or returning fans to the format. It keeps poorer pressings listenable in a way that rivals often struggle to.

Hi-fi news reviews the Stream Box S2 ultra

UK 10.2018:
Is there anything it can‘t do? In every combination I tried – from various Macs connected to the USB-B inputs on the likes of iFi Audio’s Pro iDSD and the Quad Artera Solus through to a Raspberry Pi as player into a Chord Mojo and Meridian Explorer2 – the S2 Ultra’s pass-through USB ‘cleaner’ revealed more detail in the sound, and greater weight and definition in the bass.

The Audiophile Man reviews the RPM 1 Carbon

UK, 09.2018:
The RPM, in its own right, is a top quality turntable, with a blend of upper and lower frequencies that form a nicely balanced output without misbehaving bass bloom or midrange smearing.
Well not a RPM 3 Carbon, that’s for sure! That is, the final sonic difference is so large, the sound is actually completely different and in a good way. It’s more like a RPM 4 Carbon! The overall sound quality is so far away from the original that this deck sounds like a completely new design. It also should provide confidence and added security for those RPM 3 Carbon buyers out there. A bit fed up with your current turntable’s sound quality and feel like an upgrade? Well, before you reach for your wallet to buy an expensive turntable replacement, seriously consider one or more (or all) upgrades.

Stereo Spezial reviews the Stream Box S2 Ultra

DE, 09.2018:
Verdict: A versatile streaming bridge with solid sound potential and excellent control. The HDMI option brings a breath of fresh air to UPnP streaming. To conclude, we can say that Pro-Ject's first bridge with its deliberately reduced concept and the many, partly innovative, possibilities makes it one of the most exciting products of the year!

Hi-fi news reviews the Debut III S audiophile

UK, 09.2018:
The Debut III S audiophile turns out to be aptly named. While many decks at this sort of price level are thoroughly enjoyable to listen to, ultimately they can sound a little rough around the edges. Not so this turntable, which offers a poise and sophistication that belies its price tag. Once again, Pro-Ject has shown itself to be a master when it comes to balancing its packages as this new cartridge gels with the tonearm and deck superbly.

Sound Matters reviews the Debut Carbon (DC)

08.2018:
I was keen to discover what you get for digging a little deeper into your pocket. One of the most impressive upgrades is the tonearm, which is made from carbon-fibre — a material usually reserved for much higher-end turntable offerings. Debut Carbon is a seriously impressive turntable for the price and still holds up as one of the best affordable turntables.

What Hi-Fi reviews the Essential III

UK, 08.2018:
Another budget Pro-Ject turntable, another five-star review – the company simply can’t shake the habit of turning out top-class turntables. Just save up for the acrylic platter if you can…
