Pro-Ject, a prominent name in the world of turntables, has unveiled its latest offerings – the Pro-Ject T2 and T2 Super Phono turntables. These new additions to the Pro-Ject lineup aim to combine traditional analog sound with modern convenience, catering to both seasoned audiophiles and newcomers to the vinyl scene.

The Pro-Ject T2 and T2 Super Phono share a common foundation, boasting Pro-Ject's signature craftsmanship and attention to detail. Both models feature a T-Line turntable design, characterized by a heavy glass platter and a robust wood plinth, now expanded for enhanced stability. Available in sleek finishes including Gloss Black, Satin White, or Walnut, these turntables are designed to complement any home audio setup.

Under the hood, the T2 and T2 Super Phono are powered by a high-performance belt drive system, driven by a precision-speed AC motor. This setup ensures accurate speed control, with the flexibility to switch between 33 and 45rpm at the flick of a switch. The inclusion of Pro-Ject's engineered sub-platter and stainless-steel main bearing further contributes to the turntables' stability and playback quality.

A standout feature of the T2 Super Phono is its built-in switchable phono stage, designed to deliver superior analog performance. This addition provides users with the option to bypass the internal phono stage and integrate their preferred external preamp or even experiment with different cartridges, catering to a wide range of audio preferences.

Both models come equipped with a new nine-inch tonearm, featuring a single aluminum tube and a low-friction gimbal bearing assembly for enhanced accuracy. Paired with the included Sumiko Rainier cartridge, these turntables offer a plug-and-play experience right out of the box, with no complicated setup required.

In terms of aesthetics, the T2 and T2 Super Phono exude elegance with their minimalist design and attention to detail. The absence of plastic components and the inclusion of vibration-absorbing feet ensure optimal performance by minimizing unwanted vibrations and resonance.
