Pro-Ject Debut Carbon Evo Turntable
Great prices on selected variants.
The Pro-Ject Debut Carbon Evo Turntable provides superior sound quality and performance for a true hi-fi experience.
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.
Damped From The Inside
Our previous metal platter was already heavier than anybody else‘s on the market, but metal platters inherently have a disadvantage: resonance.
Our TPE (thermoplastic elastomer) technology now helps to damp the resonance completely and also increases the weight to 1,7 kg. Because the TPE is mounted to the inside of the platter‘s rim, the moving energy will also create a flywheel effect. The result is an even quieter and noiseless operation with less wow and flutter.
Anytime, The Perfect Stance Damped
The old Debut Carbon had just one real drawback which we definitely wanted to improve on our new EVO model. Until now the Debut series was shipped with 4 dampened plastic feet. Our new Debut Carbon EVO uses 3 height adjustable heavy-duty metal feet to ensure a level positioning on every surface. By using only 3 feet we were able to increase the stability on uneven surfaces, because a perfectly level turntable is essential for real high-end sound.
The Redesigned Motor Suspension
The Debut Carbon EVO features our new designed motor suspension. The motor inside a turntable always vibrates, that is naturally the case. As the cartridge and stylus are very sensitive parts, these vibrations will also be transferred to your speakers and can cause mechanical noise. That is why it is important to suspend and decouple the motor from the plinth.
Controlled Playback Speeds
The Debut Carbon EVO has a built-in electronic speed control as 9-inch records and high-quality 45 rpm records are getting more popular and more common due to their superior sound quality.
Besides being able to effortlessly change replay speeds with the push of a button, the playback speed is electronically controlled with the utmost precision, which results in the most accurate and stable speeds.
With the included 78 rpm round belt you are also able to listen to your shellac record collection. Just change the needle to an Ortofon 2M 78 (not included) and install the round belt and you are ready to enjoy your music.
8.6" Carbon Fibre Tonearm
The Debut Carbon EVO features the proven 8,6‘‘ one piece Carbon tonearm design. In combination with the premium Ortofon 2M Red cartridge the super stiff, but lightweight tonearm delivers an insane sound quality with a convincing sound stage.
The one-piece arm and headshell design prevents unwanted resonances and offers a solid physical bond to the cartridge.
To guarantee a perfect connection to your amp, our turntables come with a high-quality phono RCA cable. Our Connect it E is a semi-balanced, low-capacitance cable, with superior shielding. Compared to other digital and analogue music sources, the signal coming from a turntable cartridge is very sensitive. Cheap RCA cables often do not provide the ideal requirements for a clean phono signal transmission to the amplifier.
