This is a beautiful turntable. Really well built, easy setup, and great sound. This is an Essential iii with an upgraded acrylic platter and a nice paint job.
Sounds great with the OM10 (which is very close to the well regarded Red 2MM).
If you’re a Beatles fan and need a turntable this is a no-brainer..
The Pro-ject deserves a 5-star rating, but be careful removing a record from the platter; lift it carefully by the very top of the record or the belt can easily slip off. Easy enough to get used to.

We bought this turntable for our living room after our old Dual started having issues. We chose this table despite not being massive Beatles fans because we found it much cheaper than a normal essential iii table and it came with an upgraded acrylic platter. I was worried it’d be too Beatle-y in a hokey way and was plannig on covering up the branding, but it honestly isn’t jarring in any way. The Sgt. Pepper logo is distorted through the platter (looks very cool actually), plus it comes wih a felt mat anyway if you’d prefer to cover it. And besides a small “The Beatles” logo on the front left of the plinth, it just looks like a quality design on a blue deck.
It may just be the essential line, but Pro-ject has really upped their game since we bought our Debut Carbon table 5 or 6 years ago it seems. All wires are now very well-insulated compared to the old thin black component cables our carbon has. The spindle is a long metal spike - much longer than the carbon. There is no motor hum. I think whatever the fix to the carbon isolating the motor was also done with this table.
The dustcover seems slightly tinted conpared to our carbon - not really a pro or a con but whatever.
The tonearm is a bit weightier. This is the main difference between this and the debut carbon (besides the slightly less expensove cartridge). But so long as you set the tracking force correctly, it will treat your records just as well. I actually prefer this tonearm setup - it sits in its rest very securely (much more so than with our carbon actually).
But the most noticible difference between is the belt being external to the platter on this turntable. Being unable to switch between 33 and 45 rpm on the carbon without removing the platter is a big pain, and having the ability to easily switch by changing the belt to the other groove makes playing 45s much more practical. More expensive and/or older TTs with more features have a button or switch, but there’s a lot that can go wrong with those. And I’d rather a manufacturer put a few more dollars towards making the components responsible for playback rock-solid - which they have.
If you’re looking for a great table around $300, this should be high on your list. If you can find it cheaper, I don’t think it canbe beatby any other new table on the market in the same price range.
