Bluetooth turntables
#1
Has anyone tried one? I am looking at the Project Essential 111 BT or maybe the cheaper Sony. I appreciate the quality will not match a decent ‘normal’ TT with a phono stage.

I cannot give you any first hand experience, but I doubt it will work. I have tried to connect my turntable with an external Bluetooth transmitter, but it did not connect. It seems a more advanced device (mobile/computer) is necessary to register successfully with the Phantom. So I would really make sure it works before.

Mac Mini (End 2014) with Music Library organized by iTunes / Spark / Amarra 4 Luxe -> (Ethernet) Netgear Orbi WiFi Network / (AudioQuest Optical) -> Dialog -> 2x White Phantom via WiFi & PLC ; Pro-Ject Carbon Debut Esprit Turntable with Ortofon Red -> (Cinch/RCA) Musical Fidelity Merlin -> (AudioQuest Optical) to Phantom ; Master & Dynamics MH40, Audeze Sine, AudioQuest Dragonfly Red; Remote Control via macOS and iOS devices

Can't talk about BT, but I have the Project Essential II Digital connected to my Golds and I'm happy with the sound. I imagine the Project Essential III BT would be as good as any BT source.

I am not so much concerned about the SQ given BT has it’s limits, I am more concerned about whether a BT turntable will actually connect with the Phantoms. I rang Devialet and they were not able to advise which I thought was a bit strange.
