A reasonably normal childhood was spent building electric guitars, flying model a
aeroplanes, playing the clarinet and breeding budgies. At fourteen, Roy’s mum asked him if he wanted a television or a record player in the house. Roy begged for a record player. His mum bought a telly!
At eighteen years, Roy built his first pair of loudspeakers in perfectly sealed cabinets. Not the first Rega product, but Roy was on his way. His interest in hi-fi evolved from a passion for music. ‘Bliss’ in those days was a live concert, a folk club, or any kind of record player.
Then a flat mate demonstrated his hi-fi system: Garrard SP25 turntable, Sonotone 9TA cartridge, Rogers HG88 amplifier and Wharfedale speakers. Roy realised his record player had room for improvement.

Pro-Ject Audio has been reviving music since 1990. Shortly after the fall of the Berlin Wall, at a time when European factories were closing in droves, founder Heinz Lichtenegger went against the herd and bought a turntable factory in the small Czech town of Litovel. Retaining the experienced staff and re-imagining classic minimal turntable designs, we went to work constructing low cost, design-oriented turntables that would help people rediscover music the way it should be.
Starting @ $320 – $ 6000
