The Juke Box E not only boasts Bluetooth connectivity, but built-in amplification too...

Plug 'n' play turntables are a simple way to get your vinyl up and spinning and Pro-Ject's £299 Juke Box E has been designed with this in mind. The deck comes with pre-adjusted tracking, anti-skating and a pre-mounted Ortofon OM5e cartridge.

You can connect a number of sources via the three line level inputs provided, and there's even the option of pairing and playing music from a mobile device via Bluetooth. The addition of a line output gives you the option of connecting the Pro-Ject to a different system further down the line.

The icing on the cake is a built-in amplifier that delivers 50 Watts of power - all you need to do is partner with a suitable pair of stereo speakers.

The Juke Box E will be available in gloss black, red or white when it goes on sale in the UK later this year.

A New Project.........

This turntable will come as a revelation to new and young vinyl buyers......If they know it exists and if it is marketed to them efficiently.

The last thing any new vinyl addict wants is a seperate large amp, a phono stage, all the extra cables and interconnects and all the bother of having to even think about them, let alone buy them and set them up.

There are some options on the market, but young folks won't be aware of them and this is key. Project will have to tap into this market, or otherwise it won't sell too many units, as it is difficult to see who else would buy it. Certainly not someone with a set up already.

It is a lovely idea which I hope does well, even though the longevity of vinyl could be called in to question. 

I personally believe vinyl will be heading in a downward direction again in the not too distant future and sad as that is, it is not that much of a shock if you look at the reality of the situation, rather than all of the glossy talk of vinyl from most journalists, who simply love a good old fashioned story, rather than a serious look at the real situation.

Looks great

Would be even more interesting if they combined the amp with the vertical concept they showed off a while back. Quality deck and space saving all rolled into one.
