Debut Carbon DC Esprit SB Turntable
Pro-Ject Debut Carbon DC Esprit SB Turntable
The Pro-Ject Debut Carbon is our bestselling entry-level / intermediate audiophile turntable. It features easy setup, quality parts, high quality engineering and Pro-Ject quality. This turntable will sound much better than your typical plastic-based, entry level turntable. The Debut Carbon features a carbon-fiber tonearm with integrated headshell and pre-mounted Ortofon 2M Red cartridge (a very popular cartridge for audiophiles). The MDF body (medium density fiberboard) is the same material used in high-end turntables and features a decoupled motor (motor is connected to the body by a suspension system). All this equates to an environment that produces little resonance / vibration to interfere with your listening experience. The Debut Carbon will deliver consistent and rich sound.
The DC model is a new upgrade (released late 2014) to the already popular Debut Carbon turntable. The DC model features a new DC motor which offers a more stable speed playback and uses less energy when in idle. The motor suspension has also been upgraded using a new TPE construction (thermo plastic elastomer, a material found in Pro-Ject's high-end models).
The Esprit SB model adds two additional features. The Esprit SB features a built-in Speed Box which gives you button control of 33 / 45rpm playback. The standard metal platter is replaced by the popular Acrylic platter which is known to improve sound quality (and aesthetics).
