Want a sexy Turntable that you can mount, and connect to your speakers by Bluetooth? You won’t have to wait much longer with the new Pro-Ject VT-E BT Turntable. This is a new wireless version of the original VT-E.
The belt-driven VT-E BT builds on the original by adding its own phono pre-amplification and a Bluetooth transmitter. A quick look at its specs sheet reveals that it uses Bluetooth version 3.0. That may not be the latest tech, but it is sufficient for transmitting stereo music over the air. Purists can connect the Turntable to their existing HiFi rig with a pre-installed RCA cord, through Line or Phono Output.
It shares similar features with the original VT-E, like left/right-handed configurations, a rigid aluminium tonearm, manual speed change for 33 and 45 rpm records, and a pre-set counterweight for Ortofon OM cartridges. It’s pre-installed with the Ortofon OM5e cartridge so this makes it pretty much plug and play. You can place it on the desk, or mount it on your wall with the separately available wall mount. Your records are secured in place with a record clamp, so don’t be worried about them falling off!
Vertical Turntables are popular because they look stylish, save precious space and can even be mounted. Although it does not have a control app (like the newsworthy LOVE Portable Turntable) the VT-E BT is likely to please both beginners and audiophiles alike.
The Pro-Ject VT-E BT Turntable retails for approximately S$669 (£380) in the UK. Available in High Gloss Black, High Gloss White, and High Gloss Red.
