Pro-Ject Juke Box E
The record player itself is based on a modified version of the popular Pro-Ject Primary design. While requiring no complicated set-up, the turntable design still includes premium features like an 8.6” aluminium tonearm with sapphire bearings, Ortofon OM 5E cartridge, perimeter belt-drive operation and a low-vibration synchronous motor with reliable speed stability. To set the turntable up there’s no need to adjust the anti-skate or counter-balance settings, simply install the belt and you’re ready to spin!
Built into the turntable chassis is a premium integrated amplifier with plenty of power and dynamic sound. Boasting 50W per-channel output, the amplifier has a moving-magnet phono stage built-in, based on Pro-Ject’s coveted Phono Box technology. There’s also a wireless Bluetooth input for CD-quality streaming from a compatible smart device, and an additional Line input. So any modern source can also be added to the Juke Box E system.
Though the Juke Box E has everything you need to build a hi-fi system, it’s still possible to take the system even further with the Line and Phono outputs for either adding in a headphone amplifier (such as the Head Box S2), connecting to another larger system or even integrating an Analogue-Digital Converter (such as the A/D Box S2 Phono) for computer recording. The forward-thinking design also follows through to the overall quality of the Juke Box E.
With gold-plated RCA connectors and isolated speaker terminals on the back panel, the Juke Box E carries with it a real sense of prestige. The same can also be said for the overall construction, thanks to the thick, heavy high-gloss plinth, luxury aluminium pulley, included removable dust cover, special decoupling feet and the intuitive display panel on the top-chassis.
Operation is simple thanks to the volume and input information shown on the display, and the 32-step digital potentiometer – with added push function for switching inputs – allows you to set playback at exactly your desired volume. For times when the Juke Box E is out of reach, the supplied remote control helps with switching inputs and adjusting volume, as well as accessing more sophisticated controls including Bass and Treble adjustment and a Loudness boost.
The Juke Box E delivers a true stereo hi-fi system in a box with the simplest of set-up processes. Once again, Pro-Ject Audio Systems are on a mission to make the premium hi-fi vinyl listening experience accessible to as many people as possible, and this time they’ve delivered with an entirely new concept that is sure to turn heads..
The Primary E is available in 2 versions; the Primary E, without phono stage, and the Primary E Phono, with built-in MM phono stage and switchable phono and line output.
