Colour Name: Black
Like the Elemental, the Primary uses an 8.6-inch aluminium tonearm with sapphire bearings for optimal tracking. The tonearm is pre-configured for the supplied Ortofon OM 5E pick-up cartridge, so there’s no need to set-up the tracking force or anti-skate during installation. The motor is also the same perimeter belt-drive type, with a low-vibration synchronous motor that’s controlled by a built-in regulator for improved speed stability. Where the Primary takes from the Essential II is in the traditional design layout. It shares the Essential II’s high-quality MDF finish, and the acoustically neutral MDF platter/felt mat platform. The plinth is available in matte black, red or white finish, and the added benefit of this layout is in the included detachable dust cover. The Primary is terminated with RCA cables for direct connection to a Moving-Magnet phono stage. The Primary turntable sets out to prove that hi-fi quality turntables don’t need to be complicated. Simply install the belt and connect it to a system in order to enjoy vinyl playback on an affordable device that won’t hurt your records.

I didn't need to spend ages fitting the cartridge and balancing etc - it was all done in the factory which was an added bonus.
As far as quality goes, the build is typical of Pro-Ject - above-average quality and solid.
I've tested the turntable fully connected to my Pioneer amp and Tannoy speakers and I can honestly say I'm delighted with the sound quality - rich, deep and warm - the Ortofon cartridge that came pre-fitted was a good choice to compliment the unit.
Overall - this is an excellent budget audiophile starter turntable that produces top quality sound and on a par with turntables costing considerably more.
Overall, yes - I'd have no hesitation in recommending this turntable - an excellent choice for beginners or audiophiles on a budget.
