Pro-Ject Debut Carbon Esprit SB Turntable
- Regular price £469.00
The Debut Carbon Esprit SB turntable takes the hugely successful, multi-award winning Debut Carbon design and adds even more to the already impressive package. On top of the impressive feature set of the standard Debut Carbon DC, including the stunning carbon fibre tonearm and Ortofon 2M Red cartridge combination; the Esprit SB version also benefits from an intuitive speed controller for effortless changing between 33 and 45rpm. The Debut Carbon Esprit SB can also spin at 78 RPM by manually switching the drive belt to the larger pulley rung (underneath the platter) and setting the speed changer to '45/78'.
(Please Note: 78 RPM records require a special stylus - we recommend the Ortofon 2M 78 Stylus for this turntable).
As well as being convenient, the speed control system also allows for smoother motor operation - further reducing unwanted resonances along with Pro-Ject's specially-developed motor isolation system. The new motor isolation system utilises Pro-Ject's preferred Thermo-Plastic Elastomer (TPE) compound to achieve dramatically reduced resonance transference from the high-quality 9V motor.
Another significant sonic benefit for the Debut Carbon Esprit SB is found in the included platter upgrade. Supplied with a 12" Acryl-IT platter, acrylic is a an excellent playback platform for vinyl, as it offers almost no resonance in the audible frequency range and negates the need for a slipmat, which can sometimes cause problems with slip and/or static.
The Debut Carbon Esprit SB takes an established hi-fi design and adds some impressive upgrades to achieve an even more complete, more high-end turntable system.

Comments of Note:
“The Debut has a smooth and easy to enjoy presentation. It is particularly good at rendering the flow of the music regardless of style and this, combined with a high degree of finesse for the price, makes it the perfect partner if you want to chill.”
“Its calmness of delivery means that low level sounds are well catered for, which goes a long way to producing an engaging result.”
“Bass extension and power is good if not spectacular.”
“There is something charming about the Debut’s approach to tempo”
“Playing Laurie Anderson’s Strange Angels [Warner Bros] with the Debut I was struck by just how much of the recording’s character comes through. This is a polished, and distinctly eighties sounding album with sumptuous bass and mountains of reverb on the kick drum. The Debut let’s you know all of this and more in its own effortless style.”

Comments of Note:
“The SB manages to retain a degree of bite without sounding too hard edged.”
“The SB’s midrange is very well balanced.”
“it’s a very smooth and detailed affair with just the right amount of presence to ensure the music remains even across its frequencies.”
“While sounding strong, Nick Drake’s voice is carefully presented and I can hear the delicacy with which he holds the ends of each note with a little intentional reticence, hinting at his character.”
“LIKE: Smooth sound with bags of detail; quality cartridge; top class arm”
“DISLIKE: Nothing at the price”
“WE SAY: A super bargain that’s easy to use and has a well balanced class-leading sound to it”
“The best all-rounder in the group marries quality components with an incredibly appealing price tag”
"With its carbon fibre arm, acrylic platter and Ortofon 2M Red cartridge, the Pro-Ject screams outstanding value. What really sells it is how these ingredients combine to provide a sonic recipe brimming with musical detail. At its price it really sets the standard."
