It was around the fall of the Berlin Wall when Heinz Lichtenegger first bought a near-closing turntable factory in the Czech Republic. Retaining the factory's experienced staff, he did what no one else expected, or even thought possible: resumed production.
Beginning in the 90s, Pro-Ject has always sought to bring proper high end vinyl sound to the low end and midrange market. It was our vision, our project, to bring back this great sound that everyone knew and loved. Today, still manufacturing from that same little factory in the Czech town of Litovel, Pro-Ject is one of the biggest names in true fidelity, reasonably priced turntables.
