What is it?
A turntable set-up does not need to be as complicated as rocket-science. Pro-Ject VT-E turntable proves that. This good sounding belt-driven deck offers two versions for left– and right-handed users. The VT-E turntable can be positioned on a table or mounted on a wall. The fast installation process is made possible, because it comes pre-adjusted out of the box. No further set-up is needed. Tracking force and anti-skating are carefully set for the included Ortofon OM 5E cartridge. The turntable is available in black matt, red matt or white matt colour.
The VT-E plinth and platter are made from acoustically neutral medium-density fibreboard, and the supplied record clamp ensures the record does not slip on the spindle during playback. When mounting on a desk, the supplied feet and back-support create a sturdy tripod that isolates well from external vibrations. Alternatively when mounting on a wall the supplied mounting kit ensures a reliable fixing to the wall’s surface.
The VT-E’s motor is the same proven design as found in other Pro-Ject turntables, and boasts a built-in AC generator for reliable speed stability and minimal noise. The tonearm is the same aluminium design found on the Elemental, but its specially-designed spring mechanism allows for accurate tracking of the record, even though it’s being played vertically. The VT-E is supplied with a set of pre-terminated Connect-IT E phono cables, for reliable connection to an external phono stage. The overall result is a true lifestyle turntable like nothing else, but one that works on real hi-fi principles.
How does it work?
The VT-E is based on the popular Elemental turntable design, which has won plaudits around the world for its great sound and affordable price. Like the Elemental, the VT-E has a pre-set tonearm and Ortofon OM 5E cartridge, so all you need to do to get spinning is install the belt and platter, then plug it into your turntable-ready hi-fi system. Turntable set-up does not need to be complicated or arduous, and VT-E proves that.
VT-E’s 8.6″ gimbal bearing aluminum tonearm is designed to deliver the audio signal from your record without gathering unwanted outside resonances that could smear or otherwise degrade your music.
VT-E comes equipped with Ortofon’s OM 5E moving magnet (MM) cartridge. Its elliptical shaped stylus provides balanced and distortion-free playback that is this table’s perfect match.
The weight of VT-E’s MDF platter realizes is perfect for its vertical orientation, provides a smooth rotation for fantastic sonic performance, and is finished off with a felt mat.
VT-E’s improved belt drive design offers a low noise AC motor with an ultra precision frequency DC-driven AC generator for ultimate velocity stability without unwanted vibration.
