”The latest version of the long-running Debut remains a winner. Recommended.” ’What Hi-Fi?’ – 5 Star review.

Better by design

The Pro-Ject Debut Carbon has been a long-running, iconic choice; and for good reason. Continuously improved over the years, the design has and continues to offer the best sound quality for the money – pure and simple. With the Debut Carbon DC version, you get Pro-Ject’s legendary carbon fibre tonearm, an award-winning Ortofon cartridge and the brilliantly engineered Debut Carbon turntable with an ultra-precise, DC power supply.

DC power supply for ultimate speed stability
Featuring a DC power supply, the Debut Carbon DC maintains speed stability for perfect pitch, without vibration. Together with the decoupled motor, this gives your music a purity and freedom from distortion that’s top of the class. Listen to a piano or vocalist and you hear a truthful rendition, without any of the ‘wobble’ that can afflict some turntables.

Carbon fibre tonearm
Another key feature with the Debut Carbon DC is the addition of a carbon fibre tonearm tube. Usually only found on much more expensive turntables, a carbon fibre tonearm tube provides significant benefits to the sound quality. Being stiffer than steel, the tonearm 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.

Ortofon 2M cartridge included
Matching the quality of the deck and tonearm, the Debut Carbon DC is supplied with the award-winning Ortofon 2M Red cartridge. Usually priced at around £100 on its own, this top quality cartridge ensures a high standard of connection with your records. The highly polished, tipped elliptical diamond gives excellent tracking without causing excessive wear to your vinyl.

Sleek yet practical styling
With its gloss black plinth, the Debut Carbon DC has a premium appearance that rivals much more expensive decks. The dust lid and isolating feet make it practical, too, letting you place the deck more freely than you would otherwise.

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

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great sound Great staff and support. Turntable sounds amazing. Will say I took one star off because the design of the lid is poor... Just sits on two metal posts and is very loose. Sure it will break one day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Time For A Review Me Thinks So, after living with the DC for the last six months I thought it was about time to put fingers to keys and let you know what I think….. A little over six months into the pandemic I decided it was about time to get back into vinyl and I took the plunge by purchasing the delightful Primary E turntable from Richer’s Stockport branch (see my review for my thoughts on said piece of kit😉) Four years on and the upgrading itch needed to be scratched and when I saw the DC advertised with a VIP discount (and having been researching it for a while as part of my upgrade plans) then it was a no brainer!! To see I’m pleased with the DC is an understatement. Everything simply sounds so much better, with the turntable offering everything from greater detail in treble, bass, vocals, instrumental separation… I could go on but rather than I’d say that if you’re thinking of upgrading and this is your budget then the DC is worthy of some serious consideration. A word as always for the Stockport store who once again afforded me such wonderful customer service, and it won’t be long before I’ll be walking through the doors to upgrade my cartridge to the much recommended Ortofon 2M Blue (come on Julian it’s begging for a VIP reduction).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from None More Black Richer Sounds had an offer I couldn't refuse, and this turntable has been waiting in its box for a few months for me to set up a desk to digitise some LPs. Well, I finally got there. First impressions: so thoughtfully and securely packaged by Project, and consequently very easy to set up, especially with a choice of several YouTube videos available. The turntable is compact, handsome, and sounds great. Also it can be upgraded down the line with new components from Project, for example an acrylic platter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tremendous Product. Bought yesterday and I am delighted with my Purchase. I was going to purchase the Project Debut but it was going to have to be delivered because it was not in stock I was being served by john at the Glasgow branch and he advised me he had a Project Debut Carbon DC in his storeroom and it was his last one. Now usually that would make me slightly sceptical but he had such a pleasant genuine manner . It was double the price but I felt confident in his knowledge and judgement. Best decision I have made in a long time. Excellent sound and easy set up. Needs a pre amp but that eliminates any other sound. problems Very happy with Price for an excellent product that is punching above its weight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pro-ject Debut Carbon DC - Deansgate, Manchester Excellent turntable. Easy to set up, looks good and sounds good too. The team at the Deansgate, Manchester Store were helpful, informative and honest with their opinions and that’s why I always shop there. Derek as always steered me safely through my purchase journey.
