Rated 5 out of 5 by BarryCh Chuffed to bits
Present to me from family; thoroughly chuffed. Like two presents in one: fabulous sound and beautifully engineered.
Denon 250 SE amp (with Denon phono pre-amp), Genexxa Pro 5 speakers.
My son got himself a Debut 2 some years back, so the Debut 3 SE was the obvious choice he tells me. All about sound quality without the twiddly bits that either cost more or mean lower sound spec.
Platter is heavy - like a flywheel to keep speed constant. Motor mount is spring damped, so acoustically isolated. The feet are also damped.
Love the minimalist elegantly-engineered design, focussing on the all-important great sound. Some of our LPs are over 40 years old, and hearing things now I never heard before! Close your eyes and it's like the instruments are in the room with you - occasionally hear fingers on strings. And provided the vinyl itself is in good nick, the quiet sections are just that - utterly soundless!
My son says Richer Sounds in Cambridge were really good to deal with.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Leo73 Unlucky ?
I bought this turntable 8 months ago and I experienced problems since, somehow it seems not be able to connect properly to my amplifier. Every time i want to play a record I need to ground the turntable as a strong and persisting hum is coming out from the left speaker till I adjust the earth.
I also get quiete a lot crackling and popping sound from the right speaker which I am unable to eliminate. I spent months researching the causes of these problems on internet and going back to RS store many times without solution.
After arranging a turntable test at RS store with one of the manager, he confirmed that there is nothing is wrong with it and that possibly there is something in my that is interfering with my turntable. I then contact the UK distributer Henley Designs and they told me that is very unlikely.
After months of frustration I decided to live and leave this story behind.

Rated 4 out of 5 by CSCS Great style and sound
This turntable sounds great and looks good, Excellent cartridge included. Metal platter is better than MDF. Its a shame there is no Auto.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Paul0351 Great sound
I replaced a 30 year old deck and I'd never heard my vinyl sound so good. Real detail in the treble, good bass, very clear voice, very precise drum sounds. More clarity than ever before.
Used with Denon 720 and Monitor MR4 speakers.

Wow what a difference between my old turntable and amp and this Project 111se. I played Tears for Fears- Big chair. The sound was clear and clean not dull and lifeless. I love it. A+++++++++++

I needed to replace my my ancient but wonderful JVC deck but could not be happier. The sound quality is superb and playing records is a joy. The construction of the deck is solid and excellent quality.
Assembly instructions not the best in the world but then it is not actually that difficult and there is a helpful guide on YouTube.
Fabulous deck. I love it.
