Pro-Ject Audio Primary E Turntable (Black)
The Primary E offers the kind of build quality usually associated with more expensive models. Coupled with the Primary’s pre-set counterweight that makes set up a breeze, it’s an unbeatable option for a vinyl newcomer. Setting up a turntable can be a time-consuming process, but the Primary E saves you the hassle of balancing your tonearm so that you can get straight into playing records. The counterweight and anti-skating weights are pre-set out of the box, making setup a simple plug-and-play affair. With a pre-fitted cartridge made by Ortofon, the leading name in turntable cartridges, the Primary E has the warmth and precision to reveal new details in your favourite records, and the delicate touch to keep your records sounding great play after play. Play both 33rpm & 45rpm records with the simple manual speed control. Simply switch the drive belt onto the pulley suitable for your records.
Rotel A10 Amplifier (Black)
The A10 is based on the classic Rotel Class AB analog integrated amplifier, designed for music lovers everywhere. The architecture of the A10 is a perfect match for turntables, with an MM phono input being available on all Rotel amplifier models. This efficiently designed amplifier is all about performance – processing audio entirely in the analog domain to provide hours of listening enjoyment.
If you are considering taking your first step into a true hi-fi system or are seeking a small, high quality audio system for another living space, you can’t do better than the A10 integrated amplifier. The A10 is all about maximum performance for the price. Its design strips away added features that increase the overall cost and can detract from your musical enjoyment.
Simple to operate and a pleasure to listen to, the A10 has connectivity for all your listening sources including an analogue media input (3.5mm mini-jack) for iOS devices or other media players, a CD input, a MM phono input in case your taste runs to classic LPs, a Tuner input to listen to your favourite radio stations and two auxiliary inputs for other analogue source devices.
Monitor Audio Monitor 50 Speakers (Black)
The Monitor 50's modern square cabinets complement the 51/2" MMP II drivers and 25 mm black C-CAM tweeters. By placing the tweeters in the top corner of the speakers, Monitor Audio has been able to reduce the size of the cabinet and give a unique appearance.
The compact dimensions, driver technology and rear port allow the speakers to perform in the most confined locations. As the cabinet is rear ported, the output is well damped and is suitable for placement close to a wall. A single set of high quality gold plated binding posts provide the connections for a suitable amplifier. The Monitor 50s certainly sound bigger than they look.
