"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 Lovely sound no humming, im very pleased I am enjoying all my records on this great turntable

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good for the money. Originally bought an Audio Technica AT120 but the sound was never very good. Possibly a faulty unit. However, got in touch with Cheltenham store and was asked to bring it in for a check. On listening to it, Jason agreed that the sound was not good. After some looking around I decided to add some more cash and go for the Project. Have to say the difference is amazing! Running through a Project phono box the treble is much better and the overall sound is improved no end. Have to add that the service from Cheltenham store was and is excellent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best budget to mid range deck Bought this as an upgrade to an ageing project debut 2 and did a load of research and tests beforehand. IMO you can’t buy a better new turntable for this kind of money. Sounds great, better quality cartridge than entry level stuff, looks the biz as well. Easy to setup out of the box and has revealed details in LP’s which were lost in the mix before. I can wholeheartedly recommend this deck.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Distinct difference in sound I've never owned a turn table and I wanted to start off with a decent one that I wouldn't have to upgrade after the first week and I think this hits the bill perfectly for me. I think the red cartridge makes all the difference in terms of reading the high and the mid notes from the vinyl and a very balanced sound being generated from a truly wonderful piece of kit. I bought the Pro ject pre amp to go with the turntable and I have started to enjoy music on a whole different level. Many thanks to Richer Sounds York Matt, Dilan and the amazing team who were very patient with me and helped me all along the way. That's why i keep going back for more and more kit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value for money I have had this for a month now and it is exactly what I'd hoped for. Beautiful sound and easy set up :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Sound I purchased the Carbon as an upgrade from the Primary turntable. I liked the look of the design build and cartridge but didn't know if I would hear the difference. But wow what a difference. The bass is more powerful and the music has more punch and clarity. The service in the Glasgow store was great as always. I am delighted with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good sound and clean design Easy to set up turntable and connect to amp. Good sound. Neat design.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great simplistic design and quality for the price I have had this turntable since Monday. It was very simple to set up as alot of the turntable is pre built. Its minimalistic design fits with almost all surroundings. Pro ject have done a very good job to make this piece easy to oporate but to still have the good quality and clarity thats to be expected of there products.
