About The Pro-Ject Juke Box E Turntable
Just add compatible speakers to the Pro-Ject Juke Box E and you are ready to enjoy your favourite record album! It is great to see a brand go back to the way it was 50+ years ago with a simple, easy to use product, but reinvent it with the latest and superior technology. And if you only have a few vinyl albums, switch over to your phone or tablet music library and connect via Bluetooth! Think a turntable system like this is too tricky to setup? The Juke Box E is here to prove otherwise!
Turntables and the analogue experience have gained in popularity the last few years, many people are searching for a true and simple plug-and-play solution. A lot of products have been introduced to the market which are supposed to end this search, though there have only been two solutions so far, which in Pro-Ject’s opinion still are not adequate to enjoy the full potential of analogue players. The most popular probably is a plastic turntable with built-in speakers. Those are mostly made in far-east with cheap construction and toy-like build quality. These products are very far from the analogue sound as it is supposed to be, they even are close to destroying your valuable records. The built-in speakers also cause lots of vibrations which are picked up from the cartridge, the outcome is a very distorted and boomy sound. On top of that, you won’t get close to a real concert-like stereo feeling, as the speakers are too close to each other to form a room-like sound stage.
Pro-Ject believe the one true solution to the analogue plug & play dilemma is the Juke Box E. It offers built-in pre and power-amplifier, which allows you to place the speakers far away from each other to minimise the possibility of acoustic feedback and to create a real analogue stereo experience. If that’s not enough, this belt driven deck offers the fastest possible installation process because it comes pre-adjusted out of the box and offers superb sound quality. With the Juke Box E, Pro-Ject wanted to show all vinyl enthusiasts and audiophiles, how easy and fantastic a music experience from a modern record player can be.
Turntable Features: The record player itself is based on a modified version of the popular Pro-Ject Primary design. While requiring no complicated set-up, the turntable design still includes premium features like an 8.6” aluminium tonearm with sapphire bearings, Ortofon OM 5E cartridge, perimeter belt-drive operation and a low-vibration synchronous motor with reliable speed stability. To set the turntable up there’s no need to adjust the anti-skate or counter-balance settings, simply install the belt and you’re ready to spin!
Integrated Amplifier Features: Built into the turntable chassis is a premium integrated amplifier with plenty of power and dynamic sound. Boasting 50 Watts (Peak) per-channel output, the amplifier has a moving-magnet phono stage built-in, based on Pro-Ject’s coveted Phono Box technology. There’s also a wireless Bluetooth input for CD-quality streaming from a compatible smart device, and an additional Line input. So any modern source can also be added to the Juke Box E system.
Expansion Options: Though the Juke Box E has everything you need to build a hi-fi system, it’s still possible to take the system even further with the Line and Phono outputs for either adding in a headphone amplifier (such as the Head Box S2), connecting to another larger system or even integrating an Analogue-Digital Converter (such as the A/D Box S2 Phono) for computer recording. The forward-thinking design also follows through to the overall quality of the Juke Box E.
Connectivity: With gold-plated RCA connectors and isolated speaker terminals on the back panel, the Juke Box E carries with it a real sense of prestige. The same can also be said for the overall construction, thanks to the thick, heavy high-gloss plinth, luxury aluminium pulley, included removable dust cover, special decoupling feet and the intuitive display panel on the top-chassis.
Just Add Speakers!
With its full range of analogue and digital inputs, Juke Box E becomes one of the most versatile offerings on the market. A turntable, a preamplifier, a power amplifier and a Bluetooth receiver as a good looking one-box-solution! The line output even gives you the ability to connect an additional amplifier for a more complete setup.
The built-in high contrast display always tells you what volume-setting you are listening at and what input currently is in use. So you always know what’s happening. The 32-step digital potentiometer gives you perfect feedback and allows you to fine-tune to your desired volume. Pressing the volume knob switches between the available inputs. For further convenience an infrared remote control is included. With so much included and already setup, simply add speakers and you’re ready to go - see bottom of page for some recommendations.
