The Debut Carbon is already nearly the perfect turntable, especially considering the price badge and the used materials. We have done a lot of research to make the Debut Carbon even better, but our main objective has not changed over the years. We still want to build an affordable high-performance turntable that not just looks incredibly luxurious and modern, but also features a great sound quality.
The Debut Carbon EVO focuses on the core aspects that make a turntable sound great. Technically correct design - expert craftsmanship - handmade in the EU. This turntable is built to last you a lifetime!
Additional features that might negatively impact the overall audio performance or longevity are left out. At that level of sonic performance, it is always better to opt for a separate phono stage. If you want Bluetooth connectivity or a USB interface - we offer a broad portfolio of components at different performance levels to suit your budget.
Modern colour finishes
With the Pro-Ject Debut Carbon Evo Phono, we are introducing an all-new suite of colour tones to compliment contemporary tastes and furniture trends. With matte, satin and high-gloss finishes to give your new turntable the high-end look you have been looking for.
Speed control as standard
The Pro-Ject Debut Carbon Evo Phono is compatible with all speed formats at the flick of a switch, this new 33 ⅓ & 45/78 RPM rocker-switch hides discreetly on the underside of the plinth. Ensuring a sleek look with the convenience of one-touch speed control.
Damped, adjustable metal feet
3 height-adjustable, heavy-duty metal feet ensure level positioning and accurate speed control on every surface. Damped with TPE technical rubber, the adjustable feet on the Pro-Ject Debut Carbon Evo Phono deliver the flexibility to fine tune the faithfulness of your playback.
8.6" carbon fibre tonearm
The proven, masterfully designed 8.6‘‘ carbon tonearm is moulded as one piece. Transporting energy through the super stiff, but lightweight tonearm, this design produces perfectly timed music with minimal interference from outside influences.
Silent, flywheel effect platter
While the Debut Carbon's previous metal platter was already heavier and more accurate than any of it's competition, it inherently had a disadvantage: resonance.
Pro-Ject's TPE technical rubber technology now dampens this resonance completely. Increasing the weight of the platter to 1.7 kg, the TPE technical rubber material is mounted to the inside of the platter‘s outer rim, creating the perfect transference of moving energy - the flywheel effect. The result is an even quieter and noiseless operation with less wow and flutter.
Heavy-duty motor suspension
This kind of technology is usually reserved only for high-end turntables. The new motor suspension system of the Pro-Ject Debut Carbon Evo Phono combines TPE technical rubber damping with high-mass mounting plates to create a sturdy, resonance free foundation for the motor.
This combination of materials has been rigorously tested, ensuring even less noise transfer than previously available at this price-point.
Pre-fitted with a stunner
The Pro-Ject Debut Carbon Evo Phono is conveniently pre-fitted as standard with the Danish-made Ortofon 2M Red cartridge. A real crowd pleaser, it works well with any genre of music and allows an easy upgrade path for the enthusiast-at-heart.
Connect to any amplifier
Most of today's amplifiers are built without a specific phono cartridge input. The Phono Box is an ideal phono preamplifier for these hi-fi systems, accepting both MM and MC cartridges. The analogue output of the Phono Box can easily be connected to the line-input of your amplifier.
