The best-buy turntable classic with carbon tonearm and computer connection!
The Pro-Ject Debut Carbon belt drive Turntable is superb in every area; design; sound quality and value for money.
The first Debut turntable, introduced in the late 1990s, was a revolution for the hi-fi industry. For the first time after the arrival of Compact Disc and the assumed demise of vinyl records, an analogue product re-emerged in the “mass market” – something all music lovers could afford.
With simple designs and high construction standards, performance has been the priority of Pro-Ject’s designers. Fully manual operation coupled with the best materials and components available ensures the best possible value. The Pro-Ject Debut Carbon is possibly the World's Best Entry-Level turntable/record player. We certainly don't know of any real competitor at this price. It is already a Best Seller and for good reason - the sound!
The new Debut Carbon has been designed to set new standards in this category for the coming decade – perfectly timed as analogue today is again a respected source, while the demand for good turntables is growing again!
The Debut Carbon Turntable from Pro-Ject is a killer deal! Pro-Ject has really created something special with this turntable! It features: a low-tolerance, chrome plated, stainless-steel axle that runs on a polished bearing in a brass housing, decoupled from the motor to reduce vibrations; a great tonearm with a bearing that comprises inverted hardened stainless-steel points and sapphire thrust-pads; a silicone damped arm lift; and a high quality leads from the headshell to the RCA connectors. The headshell and arm tube are formed from a single carbon work piece, rotation allows adjustment of azimuth with a fixed headshell. The platter is made from steel platter and is covered with a felt mat.
In addition to the new Carbon tonearm (Carbon Fibre) with increased rigidity that delivers lower reverberation, there is a new heavier platter that delivers improved wow and flutter. Also new and improved is the Sorbothane motor suspension that delivers less vibration and minimises 'rumble'. Pro-Ject claim that it is an interference-free drive mechanism.
The Debut Carbon also includes a pre-installed Ortofon OM-10E MM cartridge making this turntable a complete package. It is simple to set-up and will get you spinning LPs within minutes. This version of the Debut Carbon Turntable simply connects to your stereo system for everyday analog enjoyment, but must be connected to a standard line-level (AUX or similar) input, as the phonostage is built-in.
A great turntable, perfectly realised by Pro-Ject. Our highest recommendation. Dustcover included.
