The following is a press release issued by Pro-Ject.
March 12, 2019 - With great honour and pleasure we announce that Pro-Ject has partnered again with The Universal Music Group: This collaboration celebrates the 30th anniversary of Ringo Starr & His All-Starr Band. This incredible live rock supergroup has now been consistently touring for three decades and sees Ringo Starr collaborating with handpicked artists and friends to put on a show unlike anything else.
Much in the same way, this special turntable was also „handpicked“ by Ringo: At its base lies an Essential III, upgraded with an acryl platter, right out of the box. It features high quality and audiophile components, such as an Ortofon OM10 cartridge,a precision diamond cut aluminium pulley, top notch MDF chassis and a built in motor control for optimal speed stability. The acryl platter is not just a sound enhancement that makes the turntable sound richer and more natural by eliminating unwanted resonances caused by the platter, it also allows you to view the underlying, stunning artwork.
The artwork itself is designed by Ringo Starr and was carefully created and developed by him over the course of many years.
The Ringo Starr Peace & Love Turntable is available for 499€ MSRP.
