Essential Line

The Essential III design boasts a series of notable improvements that elevate it well beyond the ability of its multi-award-winning predecessor, both technically and cosmetically.


The Essential III A retains the simple yet elegant frame of the Essential II. It is now made with high-quality MDF for its superior acoustically neutral character, and wrapped in a high-gloss paint finish (available in red, white or black); the turntable plinth combines both elegance and functionality. 


One of the most obvious changes with the 'A' model is in the use of an upgraded Acryl-IT E platter. Also available separately, the Acryl-IT E offers an inert platform for your vinyl records to reduce the unwanted effects of resonance. Available for use both with and without the supplied felt mat, the platter slots into a stainless steel bearing in a bronze bushing with Teflon-lined bottom for liquid-smooth rotation. The overall sound result is an open, detailed and rich soundstage that arrives at a foot-tapping tempo.


The Essential III A uses the same 9V motor as its predecessor, but it’s also the first to use a new integrated grounding link that dramatically reduces electrical interference to unprecedented low levels. The motor is a premium, synchronous AC design that’s driven by a built-in signal generator, giving it optimal speed, stability and minimal resonances. The brand new aluminium pulley improves performance and appearance even further still.


The Essential III A is pre-fitted with an 8.6” aluminium tonearm for its lightweight, rigid characteristics. The gimbal bearing assembly uses sapphire bearings to allow for smooth tracking across a record, and the supplied counterweight allows for a variety of premium pick-up cartridges to be installed. The tonearm has an Ortofon OM 10 cartridge pre-fitted. Superior to the Essential II’s OM 5E cartridge, the OM 10 uses an elliptical profile and precision micro-mechanics to deliver a nice, full soundstage with plenty of impacts.


The Essential III A is a significant step forward for vinyl enthusiasts on a budget. With the inclusion of the Acryl-IT E platter, the sound performance and the cosmetic appeal have taken another significant step forward, while maintaining a price that defies belief.
