About
Pro-Ject Audio Systems
Pro-Ject Audio Systems are widely recognised as one of the finest turntable manufacturers in the world. Their mission is simply to produce the best sounding stereo analogue components at the most competitive prices possible. The current series spans a wide range of price points, with a variety of products targeted to key demographics or to accommodate the modern listener’s unique requirements.
In 2016, Pro-Ject marked their 25th anniversary year with the release of a turntable that combined traditional styling with modern technology; showing their innate ability to keep turntables fresh and interesting at a time when popularity of the vinyl format was at a previously unprecedented level. The Classic proudly sits in the middle of a multi-award winning range of turntables that manage to combine sound performance with the latest technologies and unrivalled style at every level.
Pro-Ject are also obsessed with the importance of stereo playback systems. With modern audio systems often bringing speakers either very close together or into a single enclosure, the real impact and importance of true hi-fi stereo is being lost. That’s why everything Pro-Ject create is made with pure stereo applications in mind; bringing back the true emotional importance of music to audio enthusiasts around the world.
Based in Vienna, Austria, all Pro-Ject Audio Systems turntables are made by a highly skilled workforce with great skill, care and attention in their central-European factory.

Pro-Ject Debut III S Audiophile Turntable

The Debut III S Audiophile takes the iconic, multi-award winning Debut design and adds advanced features to enhance the look and performance to new standards.

The standout feature of the Debut III S Audiophile is the new S-shape tonearm, making this model the first widely available Debut design to not include a straight tonearm. Not only does the S-shape arm provide a stylish retro appeal to the classic turntable aesthetic, but thanks to its sturdy, yet light, one-piece aluminium construction it also navigates the record with ease and fluidity. The tonearm is supplied with a brand new Ortofon cartridge pre-installed. Designed exclusively for Pro-Ject Audio Systems, the Pick-IT 25 A is a moving-magnet cartridge based on the popular Ortofon OM series, but it employs highly conductive silver spools in the generator system for a superior sound performance. The result of the combination is a very harmonic and warm, audiophile sound.

Elsewhere, the Debut III S Audiophile uses the well-recognised Debut design and includes the same belt-drive motor, AC generator and 12” platter assembly as the award-winning Debut Carbon model for a silent, stable record rotation. Performance is improved to new levels thanks to the specially developed aluminium/TPE isolation feet. Inspired by more expensive designs in the Pro-Ject range, the new feet effectively decouple the playback platform from all unwanted vibrations. Available in high-gloss black or white finishes, the remaining enhancements to the new design are found in the overall aesthetic appeal.

The Debut III S Audiophile is the first turntable to feature Pro-Ject's new ‘P’ logo on the top of the high-gloss MDF plinth. The new full Pro-Ject logo is also featured on the supplied dust cover. Elsewhere, other convenient features include the supplied Connect-IT E turntable-ready RCA cables and the 12" felt mat.

The Debut III S Audiophile employs the best technologies from an established design and combines them with new features, technology and styling to give a new spin on an iconic range.
