Pro-Ject releases the Ortofon Century

By: |

Austria (December 8, 2018): Pro-Ject has launched the Ortofon Century Anniversary-Turntable in celebration of the 100 years jubilee of one of the company’s closest partners, Ortofon.

Built on The Classic SB, the Ortofon Century incorporates ‘a few tweaks which result in even better performance. We took the already incredible Classic SB and exchanged the sub-platter for a more sophisticated aluminium one.’ The company promises ‘stunning aesthetics’ with the piano black chassis and the ‘silver aluminium sub-chassis.’

The supplied cartridge is a limited edition Ortofon Concorde Century in celebration of the jubilee. The Concord Century uses pure silver coils for ‘best
possible’ conductivity, promising a ‘more open and precise’ sound.

The Ortofon Century is available worldwide for 2.990€ MSRP.

From the press release:

‘Pro-Ject was founded in 1991, during the onslaught of the compact disc and CD players, with the mission to offer the best analogue experience for reasonable prices. In a time where the digital audio media had been on the rise, and vinyl was declared as outdated and dead, Heinz Lichtenegger kept his belief in the simple but best way to enjoy music – turntables.

Our aim is to get as many people as possible into the wonderful hobby that is HiFi audio and to deliver a real stereo experience for the lowest cost possible. The best way to start there is with a proper turntable. We want to give the customers back the right to choose what they need, without overblowing our products with unnecessary features.

Here at Pro-Ject we strive to create astonishing products with impeccable value. We only use the best components for the price and manufacture our handmade goods solely in Europe. With an eye for future trends we are always trying to fit the needs of the market.

Our passion and drive has been recognized by many acclaimed magazines. We have won multiple awards from the renowned HiFi press for our turntables and electronics over the years. Our products have also been used in countless TV shows and movies.

With cutting edge technologies and machines, we are able to create visually pleasing products without losing the eye for the finest details. We are closely working with partners of the music industry, such as Universal Music Group (The Beatles), Third Man Records (Jack White), The Rolling Stones, Parov Stelar or the world famous Hard Rock Café. Many industry leaders also cooperate with us, like the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra or Ortofon for their jubilees. With these partners, we create special limited edition products to give our customers even more choices.’
