With its top quality platter and tone-arm, the Pro-Ject Debut Carbon Esprit SB gives a taste of the high-end, without the price!

Eye-catching acrylic platter

Swapping the pressed steel platter of the standard Debut model for an acrylic one makes a big difference. These are usually only standard on turntables costing twice as much or more and the resulting improvement in sound quality is marked with improved timing, cohesion of sound and superior detail.

Carbon fibre tone-arm
Another feature with the Debut Carbon Esprit SB is the addition of a carbon fibre tone-arm tube. Usually found on more expensive turntables, this provides significant benefits to the sound quality. Being stiffer than steel, the tone arm is more rigid, which helps convey the music more accurately. In short, the music sounds tighter, punchier and more detailed.

Isolated motor
Improved motor dampening using Sorbothane gives better isolation. In terms of sound quality, isolating the motor means less background noise and a more dynamic and revealing sound. The motor itself is decoupled, synchronous design that, together with a precise belt drive system gives a smooth, high torque drive.

Attention to detail
The rigid plinth with anti-vibration feet helps in providing a taut sound. Using a brass bearing housing and stainless steel axle, the platter hub is superbly engineered and built to close tolerances for longevity. And there's a good quality Ortofon cartridge included with the turntable, so it's ready to go straight out of the box.

Minimalist good looks
With its glossy plinth, the Debut Carbon Esprit SB looks smart without being flashy. Combined with its high quality engineering, it really does give the impression that it's from the class above.

Yet again, for quality vinyl replay, pure and simple, there's nothing to beat the Debut Carbon Esprit SB at this price.

Also available in gloss red or white finishes, available to special order in store or by calling our telesales team.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! Very happy with it! Great build quality, not too hard to set up, the acrylic platter makes it sound noticeably better than the cheaper Debut carbon. Would thoroughly recommend this to anyone looking for a decent record deck.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A quality bit of kit I bought this 2 weeks ago and so glad i did. Having rediscovered my vinyl a few years ago I have been using a very basic turntable with my Sonos 5. The sound wasn’t brilliant not that was the fault of Sonos. I decided it was time for a grown up turntable and what a difference in sound. I wouldn’t have believe that my old vinyl could sound so good. A quality well made product that looks the business as well. I don’t know all the technical stuff behind it but followed a useful YouTube video to set it up. I’m glad I took the plunge and would definitely recommend it. Thanks to Mark in Bristol for his advice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great upgrade, great sound This is my first experience using a project TT and wow. Upgrading from my previous atlp120 and akai bt500 the sound is amazing, linked with ONKYO amp and bronze2 speakers it's like listening to my records all over again. Easy to set up ( apart from the fiddly anti skate cord ) and ready to play in minutes, no issues with the speed box at all which ive heard some people moaning about, this was a major plus over other projects as i didn't want to have to keep removing the platter to change the speed. It looks stunning and plays amazing, highly recommended TT. Great service as always.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent staff and welcoming environment I bought the Debut Carbon Esprit Turntable on Boxing Day. I explained that I was looking to upgrade to a more robust and intuitive turntable and the staff were extremely helpful and talked through my options. Overall I had a great customer experience and highly recommend Richer Sounds!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from easy to set up, works well and plays fabulously Having been advised to follow the Youtube demos for setting up my new turntable it made perfect sense, unlike to instructions included. It looks good, and sounds great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vinyl brought back to life ...... I was looking to upgrade my old and well-used hifi separates and decided I needed a better quality turntable. After a lot of internet research, I thought the Project Debut Carbon Esprit SB might be up my street. The main considerations were (1) Budget (I'm not made of money) (2) Sound quality and (3) ease of use. I have to say, I was a little worried about having to set something up by myself, but there's no way around that, is there? I had a demo of my chosen system at Richer Sounds in Newcastle. They couldn't have been more accommodating, answering all my questions and more. The items arrived by carrier within 48 hours. Thankfully, set up was relatively easy, following the on-line demonstration on YouTube. (Only the fiddly counter-weight was an issue, although in reality, it didn't take more than a couple of minutes to resolve). Now I'm up and running and I'm rediscovering music I haven't heard in a long time. My only regret is that I didn't do it earlier
