Thank you for purchasing a Pro-Ject Audio Systems record player.
In order to achieve maximum performance and reliability, please study these instructions carefully.
!
Warning of a hazard for the user, the unit or possible misuse
Important notice
During assembling and adjustment small parts could be lost if they are not carefully placed in a
suitable receptacle. Before starting assembly make yourself acquainted with the parts listed above which
are correspondingly numbered in the technical drawings above. Separately packed items are marked
with an asterisk *.
Safety instructions
The power supply is used to connect and disconnect the unit from the mains. Make sure that the
plug is easily accessible at all times. Hold the plug when unplugging the power cord. Never
handle the power cord while your hands are wet or damp.
!
Avoid letting liquids enter the device. Never place any item containing liquid, like a flower vase,

like lighted candles, on or near the device. The product shall not be used in damp or wet locations,
next to a bathtub, sink, swimming pool or any other similar conditions.
Keep plastic bags away from children to prevent any risk of suffocation.
The turntable was shipped partially disassembled in order to avoid damage to sensitive parts.
Please check immediately to make sure that neither the packaging nor the device was damaged
in transit.

chassis (5) as shown in the following illustration.
2.
MOUNTING THE PLATTER, DRIVE BELT AND RECORD CLAMP
With the rear support (18) mounted and the turntable in vertical position, install the platter (3) and

3.
CARTRIDGE, VERTICAL TRACKING FORCE (VTF)
The turntable is supplied with fitted cartridge Ortofon OM 5E. The counterweight (7) supplied is
suitable only for Ortofon OM cartridges. Cartridge downforce is pre-adjusted from the factory.
Please note: It is not recommended to change the cartridge or vertical tracking force without
prior consultation with your dealer.
4.
CONNECTION TO THE AMPLIFIER
The record player has two possible outputs – Line OUT (14) with integrated preamplifier and Phono OUT
(15) for connection to the preamplifier. If you choose Phono OUT (15), than use the Phono input
(sometimes labelled gram, disc or RIAA) on your amplifier. Make sure that the phono input offers
correct matching and amplification for the type of cartridge used. If you choose Line OUT (14), than
use the Line inputs (like CD, Tuner, Tape or Video).
Take care about connecting the left and right channel correctly. The RIGHT CHANNEL is usually
marked RED, the LEFT CHANNEL BLACK or WHITE. Check the manual of your amplifier for relevant
information. An earthing wire may be connected to the screw terminal between the sockets if you
encounter humming problems.
For detailed product information regarding Pro-Ject Audio Systems interconnect cables, phono
amplifiers and stereo power amplifiers, please visit our website: www.project-audio.com
5.
BLUETOOTH PAIRING
The record player has Bluetooth output and transmit signal automatically when is turned on by using
Bluetooth switch (17).
It is paired automatically with any device with Bluetooth receiver (such as Pro-Ject MaiA, MaiA DS,
Bluetooth Box s and Bluetooth Box E).
For pairing with other devices and portable speakers use the manual of the given product.
For restart of the Bluetooth transmitter, please turn OFF and ON the Bluetooth module by using the
switch. Restart is needed only when there is a change of the Bluetooth receiver.
For detailed product information regarding Pro-Ject Audio Systems Bluetooth audio receivers, please

6.
MAINS POWER CONNECTION
The turntable is supplied with a power supply suitable for your country's mains supply. Check the label
before connecting to ensure compliance with the mains rating in your house.
Connect the low voltage plug from the power supply to the socket (19) on the rear of the record
player before connecting the power supply to the mains.

SWITCHING ON AND OFF
© Pro-Ject Audio Systems · Pro-Ject VT-E BT L · Revision 2018.04.26
Pressing the power switch (1) alternately starts or stops the motor.
CHANGING REPLAY SPEED
8.
To play records at 45 r.p.m., put the drive belt (4) over the larger diameter part of the motor pulley
(2). To revert to 33 r.p.m. repeat the proceedings using the smaller step on the pulley.
MAINTENANCE AND CLEANING
9.
Your record player requires little or no regular maintenance. Remove dust with a slightly moistened
antistatic cloth. Never use a dry cloth because this will create static electricity which attracts even more
dust! Antistatic cleaning fluids are available at specialized stores but must be applied sparingly to
avoid damage to rubber parts. It is recommended to fit the needle cover before cleaning or maintenance
to avoid damage.
If the player is not used over a long period of time, the drive belt should be removed to prevent unequal
stretching.
!
Always disconnect the record player from the mains power supply as a precaution before
maintenance!

Potential incorrect use and fault conditions
Pro-Ject turntables are manufactured to the highest standards and undergo strict quality controls
before leaving the factory. Faults that may possibly occur are not necessarily due to material or
production faults but can sometimes be caused by incorrect use or unfortunate circumstances. Therefore
the following list of common fault symptoms is included.
The platter doesn't turn although the unit is switched on:
The unit is not connected to the mains power supply.
No mains at the socket.
Drive belt is not fitted or has slipped off.
No signal through one or other channel or both channels:
No signal contact from the cartridge to the internal tonearm wiring or from that to the arm lead or
from that to the phono box or between that and the amplifier. This could be due to a faulty plug,
broken wire or solder joint or simply loose plug/socket connection.
Phono input not selected at amplifier.
Amplifier not switched on.
Amplifier or speakers defective or muted.
No connection to the loudspeakers.
Strong hum on phono input:
No earth connection from cartridge or arm or arm cable to amplifier, or earth loop.
Distorted or inconsistent sound from one or both channels:
Record player is connected to wrong input of amplifier, or MM/MC switch incorrectly set.
Needle or cantilever damaged.
Wrong r.p.m., drive belt overstretched or dirty, platter bearing without oil, dirty or damaged.
Service
Should you encounter a problem which you are not able to alleviate or identify despite the above
information, please contact your dealer for further advice. Only when the problem cannot be resolved
there should the unit be sent to the responsible distributor in your country.
Guarantee repairs will only be affected if the unit is returned correctly packaged. For this reason we
recommend keeping the original packaging.
Never return a record player without making sure that is it safely disassembled and correctly packaged
in the original packaging according to the diagrams on the last page of this user guide.
Fit the cartridge protection cap and the transport lock for the tonearm tube, prior to carefully packaging
the record player.
Warranty
The manufacturer accepts no responsibility for damage caused by not adhering to these
instructions for use and/or by transportation without the original packaging. Modification or
change to any part of the product by unauthorized persons, release the manufacturer from any
liability over and above the lawful rights of the customer.
