The Pro-Ject Philosophy
Pro-Ject Audio Systems has always had one purpose since its establishment in 1991: bring HiFi Stereo music enjoyment to as many people as possible. How do we do this? By focusing all our efforts and energy into making the best sounding HiFi as affordable as possible. In 1991 we have achieved this with our first turntable – the Pro-Ject 1. Why a turntable? Because, back then, the CD format was in its infancy, had its fair share of problems and CD players were too expensive.
Pro-Ject Audio Systems is now extremely proud to announce that we have finally found access to exactly the kind of technology that allows us to make automatic turntables without degrading the sound quality to below our standards.
Handmade in Germany by a traditional manufacturer with a wealth of experience in making automatic turntables, the new Pro-Ject AUTOMAT series of turntables are, what we think, the new pinnacle of automatic turntable design. This technically reliable technology is what enables us to bring the Pro-Ject sound and philosophy to an entirely new audience, and, with it, affordable and accessible high-quality HiFi to people’s homes.
