Pro-Ject - Essential Stereo Turntable (Beatles Sgt. Pepper edition) - White/blue
Model: ESSENTIAL III
$199.98
Was $499.98
https://www.bestbuy.com/site/pro-...&acampID=0

Putting aside the graphics, this appears to be a Pro-Ject Essential III with the acrylic platter upgrade. According to whathifi (https://www.whathifi.com/pro-ject...iii/review), with the acrylic platter upgrade, "The Essential III A and the Rega P1 [whathifi's top pick for a sub-300GB pound turntable] are definitely something of a toss-up." The Essential III without the acrylic platter is $300 on amazon.com (https://www.amazon.com/Pro-Ject-E...ylguide-20) and the acrylic platter is listed as $129 on amazon (https://www.amazon.com/Pro-Ject-A...B00V62VZKK).

This one will make your records sound good and won't damage them when playing them. If you have a bunch of $1 bin records and $30 speakers it might not matter, but beyond that it does.

Why does the OP think it comes with an acrylic platter?

The product page (under Specifications) says it is MDF?...

This is a GREAT deal. I just don't know if I can get past the branding.

Probably because OP has eyes. I've never seen translucent MDF. LMAO Reviews confirm the obvious, as does the Pro-Ject website [project-audio.com].

I'm with you on that. Probably why it's so deeply discounted.

The white edition looks awesome, though much pricier...

Thanks, I guess the bestbuy description is misleading.

In for one!
