Hi  All

 

Are there any Project Primary E or Project Elemental users out there in Melbourne ?

 

I have ressurected my original Pioneer A400X and Epos 11 speakers to start a second system during the ‘lockdown’. Using a Vincent Pho-8 phono stage

 

The new turntable sits on an Ikea lack table, a Mission isoplat and addition 3mm EVA foam pads... the turntable is immune to foot traffic, i have a timber floor. The sound is very coherent and dynamic, and exceeded my expectation for a budget and well built tt.

 

Derek

I bought a Pro-ject Essential II on a whim when it was on special.  Quite similar. I still have it, and it does  a good job when I use it.  I replaced the Ortofon cart with an AT3600L and even though it's a cheaper cart, I think it's an improvement.

That’s good to know. Your Essential has a more sophisticated tonearm than my Primary, you can adjust antiskate but i cannot, so I think i’m stuck with OM family but dont mind it.

 

Did you upgrade to the acrylic platter by any chance?

Not sure you can't put different carts on it.  IMO antiskate in simple arms is not so critical.  I have arms with no anti-skate.

 

I looked at the acrylic platters.  I decided to just change the mat to a cork/neoprene one.

      I've had this turntable for 30 years. I haven't played vinyl for many years and so time has come allow someone else the joy of owning this.
       
      Specs are:
      CJ Walker brand (1980s)
      Grace G707 tonearm
      Goldring G1020 cartridge and stylus
      Original cover (repaired - see photo)
      Original hinges with covers
      Original platter
      Original (bronze) bearing is lubricated and in good condition
      New belt
       
      It has just had a full service and set up. The timber veneer is pretty good. It has a few little marks. I didn't attempt any rep[airs to the veneer, but I did apply a little wood polish. I have polished the lid. I didn't buff the lid as I wanted to present the turntable as naturally and honestly as possible.
       
      Pricing it has been quite tricky, but after discussing it with a few people and some input from SNA members I settled on a price that seems reasonable.. Apparently the Grace tonearm can sell for $400-$500.
       
      I'd rather not ship it if I can avoid it, but feel free to contact me.
