The Pro-ject Essential III A is effectively an Essential III with an upgraded frosted acrylic Acryl-IT E platter. Available for use with and without the supplied felt mat, the platter uses a stainless steel bearing in a bronze bushing with Teflon-lined bottom.

The Essential III A has a new integrated grounding link that dramatically reduces electrical interference, a built-in signal generator to ensure optimal speed stability and minimal resonances, and a new aluminium pulley among the improvements. It’s pre-fitted with an 8.6” aluminium tonearm with sapphire bearings, with an Ortofon OM 10 cartridge factory installed.

Available in high gloss black, red, and white.

Please note: you’ll need a phono stage to use the Essential III A.
