Bill Gate's review

Howdy! I'm based in Wollongong for the Instant Classic team.

This write-up is designed to take the confusion out of your turntable hunt, so I'll be as straightforward as I can.

Let's get stuck into Pro-Ject's Primary E turntable.

Hi from Gabi

Here's the Primary E in some shots I took at home. Nice and elegant to look at, right?

I'd recommend it to anyone who's on a budget but wants to stay away from plastic-fantastic turntables. The build and sound quality for this price are incredible.

Precise tolerances make the platter spin evenly and at the correct speed. A solid base and shock-absorbing feet ensure unwanted vibrations don't make their way into your signal.

Think of the Primary E as the lowest priced 'proper' deck you can buy.

It's hand-made in Czechia by Pro-Ject, the world's biggest and most trusted hifi turntable brand.

From Rupert, one of our customers in Sydney:

"Instant Classic are a rare example of beautiful, well-curated products, stellar service, and lots of heart."

What if it were possible to buy new electronics goods while being nice to the planet?

The carbon and plastic footprints of your products will be offset by Instant Classic, at no extra cost. We call it Vinyl Neutral.

I'll also show you some alternatives to think about.

The Pro-Ject T1 is a good upgrade for not much extra dosh, with improved materials, a glass platter, a hidden drive belt and electronic speed control.

With the Essential III, we get into the realm of 'serious' turntables.

The big change is the MDF construction and decoupled feet. This is to insulate your deck from outside interference.

Debut Carbon Evo

I'm going to be blunt: if you can afford the Evo, you just have to get it.

It combines everything Pro-Ject's learnt about turntable design, and the advanced features achieve a phenomenal sound.

What's a good turntable all about? My test is whether it gives me goosebumps and has me tapping my toes. The challenge is finding one for a good price.
