5 YEAR SUPERCARE COSTS JUST £9.99 ON ALL ITEMS UNDER £100, OR 10% OF PURCHASE PRICE ON ANYTHING OVER £100.

This page is intended to demonstrate the incredible value of our 5 Year Supercare. Under recent legislation, we are obliged to point out that you obviously do not need to purchase an extended warranty at the same time you purchase your electrical goods and are entitled to shop around. We have been encouraging our customers to do just that for years because, not only are our prices significantly cheaper than our competitors, but just look at what else we include:

Free loan machine (only if taken back to store)
Should you encounter a problem, just ask and you'll be provided with a unit to ensure you're not without music whilst your equipment is being fixed.

Like for like machine if unit is unrepairable
If, for any reason, we are unable to repair your unit, we'll replace it. Naturally, models do change so, while we can't guarantee that it will be the same model, we do guarantee that it will have equivalent specifications.

Free routine service / Maintenance checks
have your unit serviced as often as you wish, free of charge, during the 5 year period. (Normally excluded from extended guarantees).

45 day cooling off period
If you're not happy with our 5 Year Supercare package just ask for a full refund - no questions asked. After 45 days, providing no claim has been made, you can also terminate the agreement and receive a pro-rata refund.

If you use the policy in the 5 years, you'll have saved yourself tens and perhaps hundreds of pounds. If you don't use it...IT WON'T COST YOU A THING!*


* Simply return your unused Supercare policy within one month of the expiration date, and we'll refund the price of your warranty.

"This UK-only special improves on an already talented original. The attractive and versatile Debut SE3 is a fine buy." What Hi-Fi Sound & Vision magazine.

For quite some time, now, the Pro-Ject Debut has been a near default choice in the budget turntable market - and for good reason. Rather than adding fancy automated mechanisms, Pro-Ject have always concentrated on giving the best engineering quality possible for the money. With the new Debut S/E3 that quality engineering has just got better still.

THIS CLASSIC TURNTABLE IS NOW BETTER THAN EVER

Designed specifically for the UK market, the S/E3 version of the Debut comes with a larger and more stable platter. This provides a more solid bass response with added weight. Improved motor dampening helps give better isolation. In terms of sound quality, isolating the motor means less background noise and a more dynamic and revealing sound.

ALL THE OTHER FACTORS THAT MADE THE ORGINAL DEBUT III SO COMPELLING ARE STILL PRESENT AND CORRECT

The rigid plinth with anti-vibration feet is ideal in providing a similarly taut sound quality. The motor itself is decoupled to further reduce vibration. Using a brass bearing housing and stainless steel axle, the platter hub is superbly engineered and built to close tolerances for fine sound and longevity. The Project 8.6s tonearm now features a one piece design for improved rigidity around the headshell area. What this means is that less detail is lost and more information can be heard.

IT'S NOT JUST THE SOUND THAT'S BETTER, THE STYLING HAS BEEN IMPROVED, TOO

With its new gloss black plinth, the Debut S/E3 looks far classier than before. Combined with its high quality engineering, this Pro-Ject turntable really does give the impression that it comes from the class above.

If it's quality vinyl playback you're after, without the gimmicks, then there's simply none better than the Pro-Ject Debut S/E3.

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 8 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by good sound low spec simple turntable. A bit fiddly to set up but does the job - simple turntable but sound is good . 05 April 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by This product does what it says on the box - nothing fancy. Overall the product has met my expectation. It was fairly easy to set up - but helped by the brief overview in the shop. I'm not sure I've set the counterbalance up correctly as when you apply the final turn it moves up the arm in an uncontrolled way. Also, the anti-skate weight doesn't fit the way described in the instructions- but since to my untrained ears it doesn't add any value it is just sitting there looking lonely. 24 March 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wow Received the turntable the day after I ordered it. Watched the set up video on youtube, put it together and played Michael Jackson's Thriller, then Jarre's Oxygene and Eqinox I put it through my Yamaha amp and B&W 601,s. It simply blew me away. I haven't had a decent Turntable for years. Wow! MP3 can go and drown itself. Next up is the Berlin Philharmonic and Vivaldi. 16 January 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent can't say any more, brings my vinyl back to life, I love it 17 December 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by You need this! This turntable is excellent! The sound is detailed clear and bass is punchy and solid, I can't believe how good it sounds it makes cd's unappealing. Used with Cambridge audio phono stage the signal is similar level to cd so your amp doesn't need to be turned up further than normal. Having connected the ground wire between the units I still had a little hum buzz from static but continuing the ground wire to the copper radiator pipe cured this immediately! My system is good old technics amp with plenty of oomph this is loud between 2 and 3 on the volume, monitor audio br2 , cd player is a five star Cambridge audio but is now semi retired! 21 November 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Brings vinyl to life I purchased this to go with my new Marantz mini system, as I have a lot of vinyl that was sitting there collecting dust. Boy, am I glad I got this, the warmth of the sound of vinyl is something lovely on the ear, I had forgotten how good vinyl sounds!! It looks good and sounds good. 29 August 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Reliving past musical experiences on a great product. I have recently been in a position where I was bequeathed an amount of reasonabl Hi FI equipment, Marantz signature Amp, marantz signature Cd Player pioneer CD recorder, and Pure Dab/FM tuner along with Monitor audio Gold 20 speakers. I decided the to purchase a turntable to complete the set up, as I have original Pink Floyd, Stones, Sabbath, zeppelin, Queen etc. etc. in Vinyl format that I haven't heard in the last 30 years. What a revelation , I had heard people talk about the "warmth" etc vinyl versus CD and this turntable proves those statements in spades, the reproduction is brilliant even with the odd click, click , click. Easily to set up and operate. If you have any vinyl or want to listen to any this T.Table is a must buy. You can pay an awful lot more, but you'll not regret this purchase Must go now need to turn over to side 2. 21 August 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Life into old LP's Many years ago I turned my hi-fi into what can only be described as a CD based system. Firstly that was a big mistake as I had and still have a number of vinyl LP records. I purchased this turntable last week and I am now enjoying the really good sound from my LP?s once again. It produces a really open sound with great mid and high tones and not overly weighty on the bass tones. Thank you to the Chester shop of Richer Sounds. 25 May 2014
