"The latest version of the long-running Debut remains a winner. Recommended." What Hi-Fi Sound & Vision magazine 5-star review.

Engineering from a class above

For 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 has always concentrated on giving the best engineering quality possible for the money. Following on from other award-winning Pro-Ject Debut turntables, the Debut Carbon DC offers a stunning specification with sound quality to match.

Carbon fibre tone-arm
The key feature with the Debut Carbon is the addition of a carbon fibre tone-arm tube. Usually only found on much more expensive turntables, a carbon fibre tone-arm tube provides significant benefits to the sound quality. Being stiffer than steel, the tone arm is more rigid. This helps convey the music more accurately as there's also reduced arm resonance. In short, the music sounds tighter, punchier and more detailed than before.

Tweaks taken from the SE model
The revised Debut Carbon comes with a larger and more stable platter, providing a more solid bass response with added weight, while improved motor dampening using Sorbothane helps give better isolation. In terms of sound quality, isolating the motor means less background noise and a more dynamic and revealing sound.

Engineered for purity of sound
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. There's also a good quality Ortofon cartridge included, so it's ready to go straight out of the box.

Updated styling
With its gloss black plinth, the Debut Carbon looks far classier than previous Debut III models. Combined with its high quality engineering, this Pro-Ject turntable really does give the impression that it comes from the class above.

For quality vinyl replay, pure and simple, there's nothing to beat the Debut Carbon DC at this price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can’t go wrong Bought this alongside the project pre-amp. Together they work like a dream. Very helpful staff from the Cambridge store sorted me out over the phone within 15 minutes. Had both within a couple days. Particularly impressive considering the coronavirus situation at present.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great service and products Upgraded my full stereo rig, amp, turntable and speakers. Got a great deal and arrived faster than expected. Love richer sounds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Punchy and precise I’m really thrilled with my purchase. The ProJect Carbon is certainly a great choice for those that have high expectations from reasonably priced equipment. My new-ish classical records sound punchy and rich with lots of detail affording an impressively spacious presentation of instruments. Older records, accepting the odd pop and crackle are presented surprisingly well too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Upgrade Couple of weeks in and have worked through a lot of my favourite LP’s on this deck. Difference in the sound compared to my old deck is huge. Feels much more expensive than the £300 I paid. Delivery service excellent. Setup reasonably straight forward, Youtube tutorial helps if needed. Outstanding piece of kit from Pro-Ject.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound and no fancy systems Bought this to replace my 1981 Rega Planar 2 table. The sound is the same if not better. A bit tricky to set up, especially the counter weight system, but once it was up and running its almost as simple to use as the old Rega. With no fancy gadgets to go wrong on it,I hope it last as long.
