Austrian turntable manufacturer, Pro-Ject Audio Systems, has been honoured at this year's European Imaging and Sound Association Awards. The Pro-Ject 6 PerspeX manual turntable was crowned European Turntable 2009-2010 and praised for its eye-catching design and impressive, natural sound.

Pro-Ject Audio Systems, the leading Austrian record player manufacturer, has won a prestigious prize in the 2009 European Imaging and Sound Association (EISA) Awards.

Heinz Lichtenegger, CEO of Pro-Ject Audio Systems, says "Winning this award is like winning Wimbledon! It is recognition of my commitment to making people enthusiastic about HiFi and brightening their day with music."

The European Imaging & Sound Association (EISA) is an organization representing 50 leading multimedia magazines in 20 European countries. Each year it selects outstanding products and technologies from a wide spectrum of audiovisual product categories.


Pro-Ject Audio was presented with the top award in the Turntable category and EISA commended the 6 PerspeX as follows: "Visually, the 6 PerspeX turntable is one of Pro-ject’s happiest creations, its elegant design featuring an eye-catching slab of clear acrylic for the plinth and a thick MDF platter finished off in a matt black plastic. Floating above the plinth is a composite subchassis, supported under its substantial bearing housing by a sorbothane block and at a further three peripheral points by a series of opposing magnets. The matching tonearm is a luxury version of Pro-ject’s carbon fibre arm called the 9cc Evolution. It’s possible to ‘tune’ the sound of the 6 PerspeX by using the supplied record clamp, which brings some added focus to midrange detail while tightening-up the bass register. Without the clamp, its music sounds slightly softer and lighter but also freer and arguably more natural. It looks fabulous and sounds very impressive indeed – a natural EISA winner."

Pro-Ject Audio Systems is represented in the UK by the exclusive distributor of quality Hi-Fi and AV equipment, Henley Designs Ltd .
