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 Brilliant turntable - superb rich sound Decided to upgrade from a Rega Planer 1 - happy with the decision. Easy set up and enjoying not having to move belt to play 45’s. It looks great and sounds even better

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High Quality TT for a Mid Range Price I bought the Pro-Ject Debut Carbon Esprit SB (Black) after spending many hours reviewing available Mid-Price Range Turntables. I wanted to upgrade my TT and had heard so many good reports about the Pro-Ject Range, especially the use of a Carbon Fibre Tone Arm and Acrylic Turn Table improved background noise. I purchase the SB (Speed Box) which allows selection between Speeds at the push of a button and includes a nice l.e.d. strobe indication that your disc is at the correct speed. It is truly noticeable the improved channel separation and clarity. Easy out of the box to setup, although i have fitted an Ortofan 2M Blue in place of the supplied Ortofon 2M Red. I am really pleased with the Pro-Ject Debut Carbon Esprit SB (Black) and would highly recommend one to any audiophile wanting a quality TT at half the price of equivalents out there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the upgrade I was one of the first to buy the original Pro-Ject Debut but my recent upgrade to Carbon Esprit has made such a significant difference not only to the quality of sound but the lack of background noise is a delight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality and sound I spent some time investigating turntables and when I thought I had the information I needed, I messaged Richer Sounds for some final advice. The advice was perfect and I went ahead and purchased the Pro-Ject Debut Carbon Esprit SB (Black) turntable. The quality of the hardware and more importantly the quality of sound is brilliant.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What an improvement on my old turntable! I'd had my old turntable was 30 years and wanted an upgrade. I did lots of research and chose the ProJect Debut Esprit. As I was setting it up I could see and feel that the build quality was good, but then when I payed the first vinyl I could also hear it was too! I was hearing instruments I'd not heard on previous plays. The sound is fantastic and I have played more albums in the last few days than in the last year. It looks great, sounds great and I wish had had purchased it sooner!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great turntable Been looking to replace an old Technics turntable for a while and kept coming back to the Pro-Ject Debut Carbon Esprit SB.Finally took the plunge and am so glad I chose this little beauty.Even the box it arrives in oozes quality!Once unpacked the turntable is fairly easy to set up but would recommend watching a few you tube tutorials as the enclosed instructions are a bit confusing.Read a lot of reviews before purchasing and was a little sceptical that the sound of my vinyl would be so much improved but I was happily proved wrong.The sound this turntable puts out is nothing short of amazing!Albums I thought I knew inside out have a new lease of life.. Wish You Were Here,Houses Of The Holy, Scorps In Trance even my go to test ep for new stuff Buffalo Stance( like all sorts!)sound so much better wish i'd got this years ago.Excellent build quality and amazing sound would recommend this Pro-Ject to anyone looking to improve their vinyl listening experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits the Bill Friendly and efficient service from the Holborn store . I've waited years to retrieve my records from the loft, the Esprit is making me glad that I did. I've got a mixture of singles and albums so the speed box comes in handy. The sound quality makes playing my vinyl a pleasure. Thank you Richer Sounds
