Pro-Ject Record Puck PRO – With nickel finish

To guarantee a firm fit between the record and the turntable, a so-called record puck is a good idea. The new Pro-Ject Record Puck PRO is a particularly elegant version of this aid for vinyl lovers.

In order to guarantee a firm connection between the record and the turntable of a record player, the new Pro-Ject Record Puck PRO is the ideal solution. Pro-Ject Audio Systems now offers it not only as a perfect complement to the new Pro-Ject Debut PRO, but also for a variety of other record players.

The world market leader in record players is convinced that this is the simplest way to improve the quality of record playback.

Large offer on the market

Solutions like the Pro-Ject Record Puck PRO are available on the market in various forms and in large numbers. The spectrum ranges from very simple, inexpensive solutions to sophisticated, complex products at sometimes very ambitious prices.

The exciting thing is that, as is so often the case in the field of vinyl, there are completely different approaches, some of which, according to their developers, are naturally superior to the other concepts. Yes, in the end it has a lot to do with personal preferences…

Pro Ject Record Puck PRO 01

Pro-Ject Record Puck PRO with modern, elegant design

The new solution from Pro-Ject Audio Systems follows a very clear approach, the Pro-Ject Record Puck PRO is a solution with a modern, elegant design, and ultimately a very simple mode of operation.

The Pro-Ject Record Puck PRO is designed to achieve the firmest possible connection between the record and the turntable of the record player via the weight of the puck, which the manufacturer specifies at 190 g. The diameter of the Pro-Ject Record Puck PRO is very small.

The diameter of the Pro-Ject Record Puck PRO is 78 mm, the height is given as 16 mm, these are the “bare” figures from the data sheet.

Pro Ject Record Puck PRO 03

Made of stainless steel and nickel finish

The Pro-Ject Record Puck PRO is made of stainless steel, whereby, as described, a very reduced design is used. The special feature here is that the Pro-Ject Record Puck PRO is refined with nickel; according to the manufacturer, this galvanisation is supposed to offer a particularly noble look on the one hand and to be resistant to ageing on the other. The Pro-Ject Record Puck PRO thus maintains its elegant appearance for many years.

To protect the record, the underside is covered with felt, so there is no need for plastic at all.

Simple sound tuning

The task of the Pro-Ject Record Puck PRO is to ensure a firm fit of the record. This should lead to a reduction of unwanted resonances and thus optimise the sound performance of the playback in terms of clearer sound and timing.

The manufacturer also states that the playback of wavy records is optimised to a certain extent.

Pro Ject Record Puck PRO 02

Developed primarily for the Pro-Ject Debut PRO

Of course, the new Pro-Ject Record Puck PRO was primarily developed as an extension for the new Pro-Ject Debut PRO, and the design fits this perfectly.

However, the Pro-Ject Record Puck PRO can also be used with other turntables, whereby the manufacturer states that the spindle height must not exceed 10.5 mm with the record in place.

The new Pro-Ject Record Puck PRO should be available in specialist shops within the next few days for the recommended price of € 49,90.

Getting to the point

The Pro-Ject Record Puck PRO is, of course, first and foremost a tuning product that perfectly matches the new Pro-Ject Debut PRO, as its nickel-plated stainless steel surface perfectly matches the design of the new turntable. In addition, the Pro-Ject Record Puck PRO can also be used with a variety of other turntables and should also help to reduce resonances that damage the sound.
