Twenty five years ago, performance at this price and size was simply not possible. Together, the system is sonically accurate and pleasant to listen to. This budget audiophile system will suit most people’s tastes and be suited to small to medium sized rooms.
In the 1970’s Bjørn Erik Edvardsen set out to create an inexpensive amp that would bring Hi-Fi to the masses. This amp was to become the infamous NAD3020. Sales of it and the derivatives now surpass the million mark.
Pro-Ject are based in Austria and are currently producing more turntables than anyone else in the world and have become the reference when it comes to entry level, good quality turntables like the belt driven Pro-Ject Essential II.
