ONE OF THE MOST PRESTIGIOUS BRAND IN ANALOG PRODUCTS
Heinz Lichtenegger, one of Austria's leading distributors of high-end audio brands, founded PRO-JECT AUDIO SYSTEMS in early 1990. As an audiophile and music lover, Heinz 's interest in turntables and analog playback turned into a passion to create turntables, tonearms and analog accessories that were reasonably priced yet that were uncompromised both mechanically and sonically. This passion is what led him and his like-minded colleagues to launch a new business venture named PRO-JECT AUDIO SYSTEMS.
By early spring 1990, a chance meeting led Heinz to identify a Czech Republic based audio factory. Ironically, this factory had once specialized in the manufacturing of turntables! In a dusty corner of the factory Heinz found a basic belt-drive manual turntable and the rest, as they say, is history. During its 13-year existence, PRO-JECT has flourished while creating a sizable market demand for high-performance, reasonably priced analog playback products and accessories. PRO-JECT has won many international awards and regularly receives highly favorable reviews from the audio press around the globe.
