Continuing the tradition of affordable excellence pioneered by the Debut series, the updated Pro-Ject Debut Carbon DC turntable features a new and improved power supply with a precision built-in frequency generator (like their Speed Box). The benefits include increased speed stability and decreased motor vibration. In addition, the new TPE (ThermoPlastic Elastomer) motor suspension does a better job of isolating it from the turntable's chassis, which reduces motor noise to a minimum. All this adds up to a turntable with a more focused stereo image, tighter bass, and greater detail than before.

The legacy of the Debut series
Since its first appearance the late 1990s, Pro-Ject's Debut range has been a must-buy for an entry-level turntable. In just over a decade, the Debut model has sold several hundred thousand units and has elevated the status of turntables by appearing in museum collections and gracing the pages of high-fashion and lifestyle magazines. The Debut Carbon DC sets a new cost/performance standard with a higher level of build precision, sound quality and aesthetics.

The biggest upgrade over the old Debut II models is the addition of the 8.6-inch single-piece tube carbon fiber tonearm that increases stiffness while decreasing unwanted resonances, resulting in a higher fidelity presentation of your treasured recordings. Fitted to the carbon fiber arm is a true high-end cartridge, the 2M Red phono cartridge by Ortofon. This arm/cartridge combination is delivers exceptional tracking and recovery of the musical nuance found within the record's grooves.

The attractive, resonance-reducing MDF platter supports a heavier 300mm diameter metal platter for smoother rotation and lower wow and flutter. Additionally, a felt record mat is employed for superior record support and coupling. The platter and plinth assembly sits upon four-point O-ring feet designed for energy absorption, and the plinth-mounted motor is isolated by a new Sorbothane suspension to keep unwanted noise and vibration to a bare minimum. Plinth-mounted RCA output jacks allow for the use of higher quality interconnects for even better sonic performance. The Debut Carbon DC is offered in several high-gloss fashion colors and a full-sized hinged dustcover is included.
