Pro-Ject's "Elemental", A $199 Crosley Killer!
The secret to the new 'table's sonic success, Mr. Lichtennegger told me, is the mass placed directly below the platter bearing. The platter is of MDF, as is the plinth itself. The 'table appears to be simplicity itself, while maintaining high quality standards.
Now there's no reason to buy one of those cheap, plastic groove chewing Crosleys. Those "turntables" are currently chewing up vinyl coast to coast. Enough is enough! This should hopefully begin to put an end to it.
Lichtennegger says he's hoping to get the turntable into "alternative" retail spaces such as Target, Restoration Hardware, and other non-typical outlets that have started to carry vinyl related products.
