Essential 3A Turntable with OM10 Cartridge - George Harrison Edition

The Essential III retains the simple yet elegant frame of the Essential II. Made from high-quality MDF for its acoustically neutral character, and now wrapped in a high-gloss paint finish (available in red, white or black); the main structure combines both elegance and functionality. The plinth is then mounted on three anti-vibration feet, for effective decoupling from the surface on which the turntable is placed.

One of the most obvious changes with the new model is in the use of an upgraded Acryl-IT E platter. Also available separately, the Acryl-IT E offers an inert platform for your vinyl records to reduce the unwanted effects of resonance. Available for use with and without the supplied felt mat, the platter uses a stainless steel bearing in a bronze bushing with Teflon-lined bottom for liquid-smooth rotation. The overall sound result is an open, exciting sound that arrives at a foot-tapping tempo.

The Essential III uses the same 9V motor as its predecessor, but it’s also the first to use a new integrated grounding link that dramatically reduces electrical interference to unprecedented low levels. The motor is a premium, synchronous AC design that’s driven by a built-in signal generator, ensuring optimal speed stability and minimal resonances. The brand new aluminium pulley improves the performance and the appearance even further still.

The Essential III is pre-fitted with an 8.6” aluminium tonearm for its lightweight, rigid characteristics. The gimbal bearing assembly uses sapphire bearings to allow for smooth tracking across a record, and the supplied counterweight allows for a variety of premium pick-up cartridges to be installed. The tonearm is supplied with an Ortofon OM 10 cartridge installed. Superior to the Essential II’s OM 5E cartridge, the OM 10 uses an elliptical profile and precision micro-mechanics to deliver a nice, full soundstage with plenty of impact.

The Essential III is a significant step forward for vinyl enthusiasts on a budget. The sound and the style have been pushed to new heights, all for a price that defies belief.

Product Questions
What do I need to listen to my turntable?
A HiFi turntable requires a phono preamplifier (also referred to as a Phono Stage), an amplifier & speakers for you to listen to your music. The phono preamplifier may be separate, built into your turntable or more commonly built into your amplifier. You can also connect your turntable to a media speaker aux input using a phono preamplifier.
How do I know if I need a Phono PreAmplifier?
If your HiFi amplifier has a phono preamplifier built in it will have a dedicated input on the rear labelled "Phono". Sometimes this is switchable via a toggle on the rear of your amplifier or via a software menu on the amplifier display & may need to be enabled to have effect. On some HiFi amplifiers the Phono input may have been an optional extra in which case there could be a label but no sockets. If there is no Phono PreAmplifier on your HiFi amplifier you will either need an external unit or a turntable with a built in PreAmplifier.

Modern media speakers designed for streaming can also be connected to a turntable if they have an Aux input. To do this you will need either an external Phono PreAmplifier or a turntable with a PreAmplifier built in.

How Do I know if my turntable has a Phono PreAmplifier built in?
Most turntables do not have a PreAmplifier built in & it can sometimes be difficult to tell without checking the manual. If it does have a PreAmplifier there will sometimes be a switch on the rear of the turntable to toggle between Phono & Aux level output. You can also safely connect any turntable to an Aux input to check, if the volume is very low then a PreAmplifier will be required.
Why do turntables require a Phono PreAmplifier?
Turntables are a passive device with no internal amplification & give a very low output compared to other audio products. The Phono PreAmplifier boosts the output level to the same standard used by CD, Cassette, Radio etc.
Where can I buy replacement Styli & Belts?
We have a selection of styli, belts, spare parts & upgrade available in the turntable accessories & spares store here

If the part you require isn't listed please let us know via our Contact Us page & we will do our best to find the part you require.

Why is my turntable very quiet?
If your turntable is very quiet this is usually because you require a phono preamplifer for your system. If you have a phono pre-amplifer but the sound is still very quiet it maybe that you have a Moving Coil (MC) Cartridge on your turntable that specifically requires a Moving Coil Phono Pre-Amplifier. Some pre-amplifiers will have an MM/MC switch (Moving Magnet/Moving Coil) which can be changed for Moving Coil cartridges. Moving Coil cartridges are considered to give a far superiour sound but are also quite expensive so only tend to be fitted to high end turntables.
