Pro-Ject Essential II Demon turntable by Parov Stelar

Pro-Ject Essential II DemonThe Pro-Ject Essential II Demon is the latest collaboration between Pro-Ject Audio Systems and the famous Austrian DJ and producer 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.
