Product Information

The Best Turntable Classic with Carbon Tonearm 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.

Highlights

  • 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 from Ortofon 2M Red

The new DEBUT Carbon DC 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 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 (utilizing TPE-damping) and ultra-precision frequency DC-driven AC generator (like Speed Box) for ultimate speed stability without unwanted vibration.

The Debut Carbon Esprit 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.

  • 11.8" metal platter with felt mat eliminates static and offers a soft base for vinyl, preventing scratches and damage during playback
  • Increased platter size and additional weight offers consistent speed and stable, sturdy design
  • 8.6"carbon tonearm increases stiffness and decreases unwanted resonance
  • 4 grips on the base for added stability
  • Includes dust cover and felt mat

A Modern Vision with a Classic Design

Emerging along with the resurgence of vinyl's popularity, the Pro-Ject Debut Carbon DC Turntable with Ortofon 2M Red Cartridge is a simple, elegant turntable designed for music-lovers and vinyl aficionados alike. With a minimalist design, this turntable forgoes high-tech features, and instead focuses on creating a durable, high-quality product that vinyl-lovers will treasure for years to come. 

Vinyl is a delicate medium that requires a great deal of care and maintenance. Because of this, this record player is designed to enhance the sound of your records, so you get the most out of your vintage records. Ideal for seasoned vinyl enthusiasts or those who are just developing an interest in the medium, this LP player offers ultimate versatility in a sleek, streamlined package. 

Specially-Designed Tonearm for Enhanced Audio

Mass-produced vinyl turntables in decades past were designed with cost-effective parts and mechanics. As a result, the quality of some features suffered because of the expensive cost. One victim of this was high-end tonearms. Made from a carbon tube, this 8.6-in carbon tonearm is setting a new standard in the turntable industry as its increased stiffness decreases unwanted resonance and vibrations that can compromise the quality of the audio. 

The modern design, combined with an increased platter size and Ortofon 2M Red record stylus, drastically improves the sound quality, especially in vintage records. This moving magnet cartridge offers superior channel balance for enhanced stereo sound. Although a tonearm like this was once too expensive for standard turntables, this modern vision is produced for optimal audio quality and exceptional versatility, giving you exceptional sound from both your vintage records and brand-new vinyl. 

Cutting-Edge Mechanics for Smooth Operation

This record player is designed with a precision belt drive with synchronous AC motor, which lowers the noise and vibrations that come from the motor, ensuring the sound of your records is not compromised by the mechanical nature of the turntable. The suspended motor decoupling design utilizes TPE-damping effects and is designed with an ultra-precision-frequency DC-driven AC generator, allowing you to increase the volume and play at any speed without fear of added vibration in the motor. This manual, two-speed motor is designed for use with 33 1/3 and 45 RPM records, so you can listen to your favorite albums and singles with the click of a switch. From vintage records to new vinyl, this turntable can play it all with enhanced quality. 

Sleek, Sophisticated Aesthetic

With a simple, streamlined design, this turntable includes everything you need to enjoy your vinyl with enhanced sound quality. Rather than spending more on features you do not need, this record player offers top-of-the-line hardware for basic functions, so you can hear your vinyl the way it's supposed to be heard. The sleek, minimalist design is sure to become the focal point of your living room or media room. With four grips on the base, this turntable is designed for added stability.

Amazing turntable!!
I’ve been wanting a turntable for some time now. Went to my local electronics store and bought myself a $100 Audio-Technica turntable. I figured it would be a good starter. After having it a few days, I was not completely satisfied. The buttons seemed flimsy and there was no way to upgrade the unit in the future. So I returned it.
I did some research online and decided to try this one out although it was four times the price of the first one. And I don’t regret it! It looks sexy and clean. I like that I have to get a separate pre-amp so I can choose the one I want. It can be upgraded. And after having it now for a few weeks I can tell you it’s totally worth it. I see myself having this for many years. If you’re on the fence about it, especially because of the price, I say go for it! You won’t regret it.

It's a great buy for the price! I had been looking at much less expensive products, that I would have had to spend a lot of money on top of the price for the to make have the sound I actually wanted, so the actual price to me would be close to the money I paid for this turntable. They would still be inferior to this turntables abilities and sound, so I'm quite happy withy purchase, and will definitely do more business with World Wide Stereo.
