What is it?
If you thought that a turntable set-up is complicated like rocket-science, Primary proves the contrary. This good sounding belt-drive deck offers the fastest possible installation process because it comes pre-adjusted out of the box. No further set-up is needed. Tracking force and anti-skating are carefully set. An acrylic dust cover is included. The turntable is available in matt black, matt red or matt white colour. Because Primary Phono USB comes with a pre-mounted cartridge and built-in phono preamplifier with USB output, connection to both line-level input of your hifi system and PC/Mac easily can be used simultaneously! Open-Source recording software Audacity® is not based on a specific platform, it is available for free and the perfect solution for recording and processing of your audio data.
How does it work?
Like the Elemental Phono USB, the Primary Phono USB uses an 8.6” aluminium tonearm with sapphire bearings for optimal tracking. The tonearm is pre-configured for the supplied Ortofon OM 5E pick-up cartridge, so there’s no need to set-up the tracking force or anti-skate during installation. The motor is also the same perimeter belt-drive type, with a low-vibration synchronous motor that’s controlled by a built-in regulator for improved speed stability.
The Primary Phono USB boasts a built-in phono stage and optional USB output for recording vinyl to a PC or Mac. The Primary Phono USB is supplied with RCA cables, but the use of a junction box allows for retro-upgrading with better cables. A separate version with a traditional phono output is also available.
The Primary Phono USB turntable proves that hi-fi quality turntables don’t need to be complicated. Simply install the belt and connect it to a system in order to enjoy vinyl playback on an affordable device that won’t hurt your records.
