Product Information

The most-wanted audiophile design turntable with carbon tonearm, 3 speeds and DC power supply!  

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 new DEBUT CARBON DC ESPRIT SB was 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 with all speeds is growing fast!  

The CARBON TUBE for the tonearm increases stiffness and decreases unwanted resonance. This material normally is extensively used in highend 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), ultra precision frequency DC-driven AC generator for ultimate speed stability. Ultimate convenience is achieved, because of electronic speed change ("Speed Box") and the possibility of playing 78rpm.  

A simple exchange of stylus to 2M78 (not included) and a drive belt turnover to larger diameter of pulley is required - that's all!

The Debut Carbon Esprit SB USB Turntable comes with Ortofon's 2M Red phono cartridge. The 2M Red Series features an improved engine, which provides an increased output of 5.5mV and a tipped Elliptical diamond and split pole pins with a copper wire.

Excellent Sound, Excellent Value.
I was first impressed with the solid build. The motor is suspended so as to not add sound to the turntable. The carbon arm is impressive. And the sound is great. Clear and relatively unaffected. All styles of music sound great.

Superb Turntable
First, World Wide Stereo shipped my Turntable lightning fast! Secondly, it sounds absolutely amazing! I already had an Ortofon Blue, so I didn’t even bother with the Red. I had a slight hum at first, but a ground between the turntable and my power line conditioner took care of it. Fist record I played was Rush 2112, and man-oh-man it sounds leaps and bounds better that my audio technica lp-120. I’m using a Marantz receiver and Polk RTI-A9’s. No regrets, simply amazing!
