Pro-Ject Juke Box E1: Just Add Speakers Vinyl Playback

Pro-Ject's new Juke Box E1 just needs speakers to start your vinyl journey – or get the Juke Box E1 SET for true stereo convenience.

The Pro-Ject Juke Box E has won many fans looking to dip their toes into the world of vinyl just as the original Pro-Ject Juke Box blazed a trail as the vinyl revival was really becoming a thing.

The latest incarnation is the Pro-Ject Juke Box E1, which upgrades the tonearm and sub-platter drive system and offers more user-friendly switching between 33 and 45 RPM. Naturally, the central ingredients of Bluetooth and onboard amplification are still very much part of the mix.

Yes, this is more than an all-in-one analogue playback machine, as the inclusion of Bluetooth means you can squirt music over to it from your phone or tablet. Meanwhile, the integrated phono stage, pre-amplifier and power amplifier eliminate the need for separates. Furthermore, should you want an entire package, Pro-Ject offers a pair of speakers for the system for a little more cash.

The deck is based on the E1 turntable and features a CNC-machined wood chassis, aluminium tonearm and Ortofon OM 5E cartridge. This is all connected to a 50W per-channel Class D amplifier. The tonearm comes pre-set and balanced, so all you have to do is attach the drive belt, place the platter and plug the deck into the mains.

There's a neat display that shows the volume and input, as well as the turntable speed selector. Volume is handled by a 32-step potentiometer.

The Juke Box E1 is available now in black, white, red and walnut finishes, costing £599. The Juke Box E1 SET adds a pair of Pro-Ject's Speaker Box 5 speakers in a matching red, white or black finish, along with a speaker cable and speaker isolation feet, priced at £799.
