Pro-Ject: The Dark Side of the Moon

Pro-Ject is happy to introduce “The Dark Side Of The Moon” limited edition turntable, an extraordinary piece which is uniquely designed to pay tribute to an iconic album. The team at Pro-Ject was able to keep the core aspects of the artwork design and combine it with their usual high quality materials for a one-of-a-kind turntable. As with all Pro-Ject turntables, the “The Darkside Of The Moon” is hand-made in Europe.

Not only is the music of the album The Dark Side Of The Moon“ truly iconic, the artwork itself is legendary and instantly recognizable around the world: an enigmatic prism which reflects beams of light into space. This magical and mystical theme illustrates the band‘s complex sound world and is what Pro-Ject aimed to pay tribute.

The plinth is made of MDF which offers the perfect base. The stainless steel axle of the heavy aluminium sub platter sits in a bronze bushing. The flat silicon belt builds the connection to the AC motor, which ensures stable speeds. The unique acrylic low resonance tonearm is a complete new design and definitely one of the highlights of this turntable, and its combination of black aluminium and acrylic results in an absolute eye-catcher. The custom Pick it PRO Special Edition is tuned to fit the whole concept and delivers the rich sound you would expect for a Dark Side Of The Moon turntable.
