Value-based audiophile turntable with 8.6" carbon fiber tonearm and Ortofon 2M Red phono cartridge
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.
The best-buy turntable classic with carbon tonearm and DC power supply!
The new Pro-Ject Debut Carbon (DC) 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 most obvious improvement is the inclusion of a CARBON TUBE for the tonearm, which increases stiffness and decreases unwanted resonance. This material normally is extensively used in high-end tonearms, but – because of cost reasons – was never used in products at lower price levels. Together with other improvements like an increase in platter size and weight to realize even smoother rotation, the overall sound quality is greatly improved. The approved belt drive design offers low noise AC motor with effective motor decoupling (utilising TPE-damping) and ultra precision frequency DC-driven AC generator (like Speed Box) for ultimate speed stability without unwanted vibration.
The Pro-Ject Debut Carbon DC includes an Ortofon 2M Red phono cartridge and is offered in high-gloss black, shiny white, red, green, blue, yellow, silver or matte walnut. All Debut Carbon DC turntables include acrylic lid as shown in second walnut finish image below.
