Pro-Ject Debut Carbon Turntable

Project Debut Carbon

The Pro-Ject Debut Carbon turntable comes in four flavors:
Debut Carbon (DC)
Debut Carbon Phono USB (DC)
Debut Carbon Esprit (DC)
Debut Carbon Esprit SB (DC)
The Debut Carbon Phono USB (DC) has a built-in phono preamplifier with USB output, connection to both line-level input of your hifi system and recording of vinyl to PC/Mac.
The Debut Carbon Esprit SB – The SB stands for Speed Box  which is the ultimate convenience because of electronic speed change instead of changing belts.
Manufacture site for more info:

• 8,6” carbon tonearm
• Increased platter size with more weight
• Precision belt drive with synchronous motor
• New DC power supply with ultra precision frequency DC-driven AC generator (like Speed Box) for ultimate speed stability.
• New TPE motor suspension
• Felt mat
• magnetic cartridge options from Ortofon OM 10 or 2M red
• 7 high-gloss colors
• Dust cover included

The (DC) is for ultra precision frequency DC-driven AC generator (like Speed Box) for ultimate speed stability without unwanted vibration.
This is a turntable classic with carbon tonearm and DC power supply!

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 DEBUT CARBON DC is offered in high-gloss black or shiny red, green, blue, yellow, silver or white as no-added-cost option.

Debut Esprit SB

The Esprit model offers an acrylic platter as well as 7 color options and the Esprit SB model (pictured above)offers Speed Box change, acrylic platter and choice of eight colors.
