The Primary E has been designed to offer a hi-fi friendly alternative to vinyl music lovers who are limited by their budget.

Direct-wired Motor

Pro-Ject have updated the Primary in order to make it more affordable than ever before, without losing the quality fans of the brand have come to expect.

Offering exactly the same features and performance as the multi-award winning Primary record player, the Primary E is available for this price because of its direct-wired 230V motor.

Signal Processing

By removing the need for an external wall-wart power supply, the Primary E eliminates the need for any additional internal power signal processing but still retains a quiet, consistent motor rotation.

The motor itself powers the same perimeter drive belt system as the original Primary.

The end result of this change is a turntable that still sounds like a true piece of hi-fi, but that costs less than ever before.


The Primary E's 8.6" aluminium tonearm, taken from the Elemental, uses sapphire bearings for optimal tracking across a record side.

The tonearm is designed specifically for use with the supplied Ortofon OM pick-up cartridge, and tracking force and anti-skate is pre-configured to play straight out of the box with no fiddly setup.


The Primary E turntable proves that hi-fi quality turntables don’t need to be complicated.

Simply install the belt and connect it to a system with an MM phono stage in order to enjoy vinyl playback on an affordable device that won’t diminish your records.


Great Aesthetics

The overall aesthetic of the Primary E takes inspiration from the Essential II and has a sleek, retro appeal thanks to its consistent matte black finish.

The included detachable dust cover also brings extra convenience and protection when the turntable is not in use.

The plinth is finished in matte black and the added benefit of this layout is in the included detachable dust cover.

The best turntable under £200

"Pro-Ject has revised a budget deck to nail the £150 market, and has succeeded on every front."
