Mint reviews the Elemental

DE, 11.2018
The buyer must do without comfort feartures, but not on good sound. By the way - made in Europe - precisely processed and sonically as well as mechanically far away from the plastic disposal problems of Chinese products, but are still found in the same price range as the Elemental.

avforums reviews the Primary E

UK, 11.2018
The result is that for the money, you get something that delivers on the premise of vinyl replay and a new starting price for respectable analogue. Pro-Ject’s twenty year mission to make record players affordable shows no sign of abating and the Primary E is certainly worthy of recommendation.

SoundStage! HI-FI reviews The Classic

US, 10.2018
At its price, the Classic SB nudges the ragged edge of the entry level, but what it offers justifies that price. The Pro-Ject Classic SB is for those whose systems would most benefit not from an upgrade of speakers or amplifier, but from the addition of an analog front end that’s more than just a simple platter on a basic plinth.

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.
