"When Pro-Ject took over the German factory responsible for the classic automatic hifi turntable, they immediately improved the base model with the Automat A1. With the higher-end A2, they've reinvented the automatic. With an improved automatic mechanism, sub-chassis, and tonearm, Pro-Ject has created the finest automatic we've encountered." - TTL

"The A2 uses a new system for setting the tracking force. Damping the counterweight makes the tonearm as a whole more robust and decouples the counterweight from the tonearm reducing resonant frequencies. The tracking force is set by turning a dial directly on the tonearm bearing. Not only is this system very fast, precise and efficient, it also keeps the center of gravity directly on top of the bearing center. The spring based anti-skating can also be adjusted directly on the tonearm base." - Pro-Ject
