Pro-Ject Audio Systems are widely recognised as one of the finest turntable manufacturers in the world. Their mission is simply to produce the best sounding stereo analogue components at the most competitive prices possible. The current series spans a wide range of price points, with a variety of products targeted to key demographics or to accommodate the modern listener’s unique requirements.
Pro-Ject Audio Systems was founded in 1990 in Vienna, Austria, by Heinz Lichtenegger - a young audio enthusiast who believed that analogue playback was the most cost-effective way to listen to music in audiophile quality.
Heinz’s belief in the importance of the turntable came to prominence during a time when vinyl was at death’s door – with the CD revolutionising the wider audio market. However, Heinz stood firm and argued the case for not only analogue replay – but also for the pride and sense of ownership and interaction you simply do not get with digital media. So with this belief, he produced his first turntable – the Pro-Ject 1.
