Includes an Ortofon 2M Red Cartridge
The most-wanted audiophile design turntable with carbon tonearm, 3 speeds and DC power supply!
The first Pro-Ject Debut Turntable, introduced in the late 1990s, was a revolution for the hi-fi industry. For the first time after the arrival of Compact Disc and the assumed demise of vinyl records, an analogue product re-emerged in the “mass market” – something all music lovers could afford.
The new DEBUT CARBON DC ESPRIT SB was designed to set new standards in this category for the coming decade – perfectly timed as analogue today is again a respected source, while the demand for good turntables with all speeds is growing fast!
The CARBON TUBE for the tonearm increases stiffness and decreases unwanted resonance. This material normally is extensively used in highend tonearms, but – because of cost reasons – was never used in products at lower price levels. Together with other improvements like an increase in platter size and weight to realize even smoother rotation, the overall sound quality is greatly improved. The approved belt drive design offers low noise AC motor with effective motor decoupling (utilising TPE), ultra precision frequency DC-driven AC generator for ultimate speed stability. Ultimate convenience is achieved, because of electronic speed change („Speed Box“) and the possibility of playing 78rpm.
A simple exchange of stylus to 2M78 (not included) and a drive belt turnover to larger diameter of pulley is required, that´s all!
Pre-fitted with the Ortofon 2M Red
The 2M Series of cartridges is designed for precise and accurate retrieval of the information in the record groove. Our philosophy is to play the record sound as accurate as possible, without colouring the sound. The Ortofon 2M Red is the perfect fit for the Pro-Ject Debut Carbon Esprit SB.
More than just an eye-catching aesthetic feature, the translucent acrylic platter of the Pro-Ject Debut Carbon Esprit SB is a perfect companion to vinyl. The acrylic platter dampens the effects of unwanted vibrations and helps ensure smooth, accurate speed.
Speed Control for all records
In-built Speed Control allows you to play all formats of records on the Pro-Ject Debut Carbon Esprit SB. The common 33⅓ & 45 RPM speeds are toggled with an effortless click of the button.
For rare 78 RPM Shellac records it’s a simple belt change (included in the box) and the addition of an Ortofon 2M 78 stylusupgrade.
