Pro-Ject Primary

Reviewed on 28th March 2017 at

The Pro-Ject Primary, based on the engineering of the Elemental turntable, is a great way to get into the vinyl action.

It's full of life, bold, and has a great sense of rhythm that's a welcome surprise at this price. We've seen few players fit their brief so well.

Clearaudio Concept

Reviewed on 7th March 2016 at

We've long been fans of Clearaudio's Concept turntable package. It's a thoroughly sorted, easy-to-own package with tremendous sound that has poise and pace to spare, combining punch, extension and tonal variation in equal measure.

It is an outstanding product, and took the title of Best turntable £800+ at the 2015 What Hi-Fi? Awards.
