The refined, high–precision platter bearing has significantly lower tolerances than Essential II. Essential III is the audiophile entry turntable! The setup is very simple, the included Phono RCA cable, Connect it E, sounds far above its price range. Equipped with the high–quality pickup OM10 by the phonographic cartridge pioneer Ortofon, Essential III delivers lively, balanced and highly involving sound that will delight every vinyl lover. Essential III comes in the aesthetic highgloss colors black, red and white.

The only nitpick I have of it is that the felt mat that it comes with should be replaced with a better mat. I understood why they did it, which was for cost savings purposes, which doesn't bother me at all. I replaced the felt mat with the the Electrohome Turntable Platter Mat (bought that on Amazon as well) and that did wonders for the sound. The turntable didn't sound bad with the felt mat, but upon replacing the felt mat, the sound became brighter and more defined. Comparing the two mats, the sound was flatter with the felt mat. There are a gazillion different mat options out there and that is something you should factor in when purchasing this turntable.
Cons: when I received my turntable, there was no loop at the end of the anti-skating weight. Because the "fishline" is rather short and very, very fine, it was a little difficult to make a loop so that it could be attached where it was supposed to go. And, I have fairly small and steady hands. Also, this being my first experience with a belt drive turntable, I learned that it was quite easy to dislodge the belt when placing , or removing, an lp from the turntable. Not a big deal, but it usually takes me 2, 3, or 4 efforts to re-position the belt. One of my major inducements to get this turntable rather than a few others I was considering was the Ortofon 10 cartridge which, I learned, was a better cartridge than some of the competition. I would recommend this turntable to others, but the extra care that's required to avoid constantly dislodging the belt is a minor nuisance and not a dealbreaker.
If you have the patience for this sort of thing, go for it, but I don't have time for this nonsense, it is just awful design, plain and simple.
My primary reason for getting this was to connect to my Sonos connect and I needed a TT with a preamp. I didn’t do enough due diligence and didn’t realize that many other TT,s had preamps as well. Back in the day, you just plugged your TT into your receiver with a built in preamp and that was it. Now, most receivers do not have a preamp section. So , I got the project.
I really wanted to like it; but, alas, it came up short. Why? First, the design is plain awful. It’s a belt drive , and the belt goes around the platter. Sounds simple, right? Well, there is no groove in the platter to hold the narrow belt so the belt comes loose from the platter. When it does, it also dislodges the ridiculous anti-skate weight that just hangs on the back attached to a silly , tiny fish line with a equally silly, tiny hole that you have to hook on to a little groove on the tone arm. This is minamism at its worst. Then you have to reassemble everything which is a pain in the neck. I bought this from Sonos as they recommended it. It’s going back tomorrow
I’ll probably purchase the Fluance 81 that gets great reviews on Amazon and elsewhere.
I really did not intend to make this review so long, but I really wanted to make buyers aware.
