Pro-Ject Essential II Demon turntable by Parov Stelar
The company says that Parov Stelar and Pro-Ject Audio Systems share the love and passion for music and so moved to cooperate in creating a third special turntable, that shows “Parov Stelar design”.
The Essential II Demon is based on the renowned Essential series of Pro-Ject turntables and utilises a straight 8.6-inch aluminium tonearm design made from a single piece of aluminium with sapphire bearings, which offers a plug and play solution.
Special feet effectively decouple the turntable from its surface and a quiet-running synchronous motor with a silicone belt is driving a low-resonance platter made from laminated particle board.
The main platter bearing consists of stainless steel spindle and bronze bushing with Teflon bottom to secure low friction.
The Pro-Ject Essential II Demon will come fitted with a quality MM cartridge from highly acclaimed Ortofon OM series.
The Essential II Demon will be available as a limited collectors edition for €359.00 – I’m not sure how limited these turntables will be but the first 500 come with the Demon Diaries EP by Parov.
