Pro-Ject T1 Phono SB Review

The new model from the basic series, Pro-Ject T1 Phono SB (actually the upgraded T1), now brings an integrated turntable preamplifier and button speed switch. Read further details in our review below. Pro-Ject should simplify its complex range of turntables and thus make it clearer to customers. That, however, did not happen, even though the Xpression and Experience lines were shut down. In the meantime two new types of devices were added so there are 12 turntable lines again. In the last few years, Pro-Ject has paid the most attention to basic models intended for those who would enter the

Pioneer PLX-500 Review

After the triumphal march of the PLX-1000, Pioneer sends the similar directly driven PLX-500 into the race for space next to the mixer. In terms of its specifications, it lags a bit behind the top model, also slightly different in the dimensions and pitch range. It has a 44.1 kHz USB sound card in its chassis – interface to connect with the computer in order to digitize vinyl without an additional audio interface. This sometimes takes a lot of weight when making a purchase decision and the professional demeanor improves. Is this a good turntable for DJs and audio digitizing

Pro-Ject Essential 3 Review

The Pro-Ject Essential 3 turntable is a great example of how a manufacturer can offer something new, interesting, and quality for relatively little money. In its program, Pro-Ject offers a huge number of turntables that meet the requirements of various categories of users. It is not disputed that the company has vast experience that they have accumulated in the construction of turntables in recent years, and certainly have the technology that helps their knowledge to effectively implement in every new model. But looking at the turntable on the test raises the question of how far it is possible to innovate

Audio Technica AT-LP120 USB Review

Audio Technica AT LP120USB Review Music and technology move on at a very fast pace these days, basically much like any technological advancement; if you stand still, you’re lost! The problem with that whole situation is that the things you enjoy about the way things were, can often become lost too, or even obsolete. For instance, you might have an extensive collection of old LPs or vinyl records, and you might have some of your favorite tunes on them, tunes which you would love to listen to every day. You might not want to keep buying a new format of

Pro Ject RPM 1 Carbon Review

Pro Ject RPM 1 Carbon Test – Stable RPMs The base model in the top category of Pro-Ject’s turntable is far more than the basic class – it is a perfect reproduction of vinyl. In the rich turntables selection of well-known Austrian manufacturer, which even makes up to nine lines of the product(except for attractive vertical turntable and limited special editions), the graduation from the basic Elemental model to the leading Signature is very gradual, although it may be somewhat confusing for an indecisive buyer, it offers answers and solutions for all vinyl reproduction needs. Pro-Ject RPM 1 Carbon is

Pro Ject RPM 1.3 Genie – Review, Test & Conclusion

It is hard to imagine in the present time that some company produces over 20 models of turntables. And in the Austrian-Czech company Pro-Ject’s catalog, we counted them straight 24. The model that we have tested is not included in the catalog, but complete review, test, and conclusion of Pro Ject RPM 1.3 Genie follow. Namely, the name of the tested model is RPM 1.3 Genie, while the company catalog available on the Internet only has an RPM 1 Genie model. What is different is difficult to say. Looking at the image of model 1 and comparing it with the

Rega RP1 – Review, Test and Final Verdict

The turntable in the initial class can sound soft and seductive on the first impression, but over time, that impression can turn into a feeling that we have a deal with a subtle, “lazy” device. Rega RP1 does not belong to that line of “budget” turntable classes. We can say it is a turntable under 500$, but it has a sound that belongs in a higher price class. Read the details below. RP1 is a new entry-level model of the legendary British music company that has built its name for decades on high-quality and affordable turntables and tonearms. Rega RP1

Audio Technica AT-LP5 Review

Today we have the opportunity to make Audio Technica AT-LP5 Review. This is a relatively new model from Audio Technica Company. What is good and what is bad in this turntable? Read below in our review article. I have to admit that I’m constantly surprised by the rate of return of the vinyl to the audio scene. At a time when every free moment of your time is valuable and there is a huge offer of simple music players, a turntable that requires time, attention and certainly not the most practical sound source is returned to the scene. The record

Denon DP-300F Review

If you grew up listening to records, you know that it was the coolest thing to have back in the day. People would spend hours listening to records. If you thought these days were long gone, you could think again. Vinyl has come back and this time, it is a force. There are no signs that it will go out of the entertainment scene soon. With the return of turntables, many manufacturers have come up with different designs of turntables that have different features. This makes it tough to choose one among the many choices. Do not worry. We have

Pro-Ject Debut Carbon Review

Pro-Ject launches the Debut Carbon turntable in three different versions. We went through it step by step. The Devices In The Test Pro-Ject Debut Carbon DC Turntable with Ortofon 2M Red Cartridge (~ $400) Pro-Ject Debut Recordmaster with USB and Phono Preamp (~ $500) Pro-Ject Debut Carbon Esprit SB (~ $600) The Czech-Austrian vinyl giant Pro-Ject started more than 20 years ago with a single model, the construction of which dates back to the pre-reunification period – and which made posthumously socialism the best friend of the hi-fi beginner. Today the program is so finely differentiated that even someone who
