"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.

We'll happily come to you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Basic features and excellent sound quality The setup took about 20 minutes. The manual is basic however i was shown in the store how to put the player together and how to balance the arm. I also watched a youtube video and it was fairly staight foward and worked first time. I played "0ff the wall" by Michael Jackson and the sound quality is amazing similar to cd but sonically different across the dynamic range. All the instruments sound natual and high frequencies are delivered beautifully together with the percussion and occasional static. "A Moon Shaped pool" by Radiohead is perfect for vinyl the dynamic range and static adds to pleasure of listening to this record. Accoustic albums such "Fire inside" by Luke Sittal Singh is breathtakingly beautiful. Additional features such as usb ripping, optical output are omitted to reduce the electrical noise to enhance the sound quality. The record player in manually operated and minimalist and continues to spin at the end of the record. Amazing value for a player below £500

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value for money and very stylish Easy to use, set-up instructions easy to follow, balance weight is a bit difficult to set-up but once done its great. Would definately recommend as a great value and stylish product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent sound, but a little pricey The no-nonsense design maybe means I am paying purely for great sound, but the manual speed change by belt move, lack of suspension and lack of auto-off seem an expensive loss. I am comparing to my old Dual 505-3, where a suspended deck, switched speeds and auto-off came with a similar sound quality. However, the Dual probably cost me comparatively more 20 or more years ago!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Really disappointed. Stylus broke after just 6 weeks of careful use. Bought from Liverpool store. They weren't interested when I called about it. Nearly 50 pounds for a replacement when I can afford it. Disappointed to say the least.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product Playing this turntable through my alchemist forsetti integrated amp brings all my old albums back to life. What a sound! Great base and musicality with amazing vocals. Thanks to John and Garry at Richer Sounds in Edinburgh for there "sound" advice and first class customer service. One happy customer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from absolutely outstanding value During the last few years, I have been hooked on using digital systems whether that be at home/in car or outside. December 2015 my wife bought me as a Xmas present a number of Vinyl records along with a vintage Dansette record player. Within just a few weeks problems materialised with very poor sound quality along with scratched records! Finally I took the plunge and purchased a complete system mainly with the help of Tom & Eli who proved to be a huge asset eventually buying ProJect Carbon turntable, Cambridge Audio SR20 receiver, Monitor Audio Bronze speakers as well as the usual trimmings - Pixel Plus stand & Pixel PXHF40 speaker stands - result....fantastic, same goes for all of the staff at Richer Sounds Lichfield, cannot sing their praises enough - thank you all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice peice of kit I was a little nervous as to whether or not the purchase price plus the need for a pre-amp would be justified over my existing Denon turntable, I need not have been, this has given my existing and new vinyl a whole new lease of life, I run mine through an Onkyo AV amp and I'm so pleased with the results I'm now adding to my vinyl collection
