The original Pro-Ject Debut was released in the late 1990’s during a time when CD was king, and the vinyl format was presumed to be all but gone. But nearly two decades (and a few incarnations) later the model still stands, and it deserves a key accreditation in the ongoing success of a rejuvenated vinyl and budget turntable market. The Debut symbolises all that is good about vinyl; it is beautiful to behold and fantastic to listen to, with the right mixture of user-friendliness and opportunity to tweak and upgrade.
Introduced at the beginning of 2012, the Debut Carbon expanded on the Debut III in a variety of ways, but most notably with its one-piece 8.6" carbon fibre tonearm. Using a carbon fibre tonearm at this price is almost unheard of, and allows the newest Debut to outperform all of its competitiors. The stiff yet lightweight tonearm provides the perfect properties for the pre-installed Ortofon 2M Red cartridge to sing at its fullest potential.
In addition to the improved tonearm, the full-size 12" main platter offers better performance than any other previous Debut model. The platter is driven by a high-quality motor that is now mounted onto a new Thermo-Plastic Elastomer (TPE) "blob" set. This rubber composition dramatically reduces resonance transference from the motor, further improving the turntable's sound quality.
Since 2014, the Debut Carbon has been upgraded to the Debut Carbon DC. The DC model benefits from a new, upgraded power supply that powers an ultra-precise, DC-driven AC motor generator for superlative speed stability. This added tweak further elevates the Debut Carbon to comfortably the best Debut model ever.
The Debut Carbon DC is an affordable hi-fi turntable that is even comfortable in far more expensive hi-fi systems. This, combined with the wide variety of finish options, means more people than ever are experiencing Pro-Ject's most famous turntable.
The Debut Carbon DC Phono USB boasts all the strengths of the standard Debut Carbon DC and adds a built-in USB phono stage. Not only does the MM phono stage make connecting to a hi-fi system even easier (avoiding the need for an external accessory or Phono input on your amplifier), but the USB output allows for high-quality recording of your vinyl records to a computer.
