”All in all, this is another excellent Pro-Ject Debut turntable and one you need to hear.”– ‘What Hi-Fi’ – 5 Star review.

Enhanced tracking with an S-shaped tonearm

Retro-styled but anything but retro sounding, the new S-shaped tonearm sets this deck apart from other Debut models. The one piece, aluminium design gives enhanced tracking through its design. It also features VTA (Vertical Tracking Angle). VTA can be very handy if you decide to fit a new, deeper, cartridge or even a thicker mat. By being able to positon the tonearm perfectly level, you get the least distorted and most accurate sound possible.

Dedicated cartridge
As well as the unique tonearm, this audiophile turntable also comes with a special cartridge. Newly developed, the Pro-Ject Pick-IT 25 uses highly conductive silver-plated spools in its motor. Higher conductivity means more detail and is just one of the reasons this turntable leads its class in sound quality.

A solid base
Providing the perfect base, the Debut III S Audiophile uses a dense, MDF plinth. This is available in gloss black or white and now sports a smart new logo. To reduce distortion and effectively isolate the player, the deck uses top quality, hybrid aluminium/TPE feet.

Debut power
One thing that hasn’t changed is the tried and tested Debut motor and platter assembly. The smooth-running AC motor is near silent and drives the sturdy steel platter via a sub-platter - so no worries about the belt slipping off here!

Detachable phono lead
Supplied with a good quality Connect-IT E interconnect cable, the Debut III S Audiophile makes the most of the turntables performance. Being detachable, though, this can always be upgraded if you want to maximise the full potential of this impressive deck.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent After 30 years I thought it was time to go back to a turntable. My wife bought me an ion turntable for Christmas. Although the sound was good, it was missing that something. After 6 months, and agreeing we were back into the vinyl and needed something better. I. Looked at and listened to a few including the Denon 300 and Technica. The Denon sound was good, and you could hear the difference instantly over the Ion. I liked the technica with all its functions, but it was very plastic. My wife suggested a Project. We reviewed a few and decided on the debut 111. It was the newest at the time. The head Ortofon was off a more expensive . Unpacking and putting together is a doddle. There are the weights to connect, which was easy even with my fiddly fingers. Once built it looks good, almost a technical work of art. Our first record to play was Gaurdians of the Galaxy sound track. This was our test Lp in store. On the ion it as tinny. On the Denon it lacked some clarity. On the Project we were gobsmacked. There is clarity and depth. 10cc "not in love" blew us away. Of course it depends on your sound setup, we have mission speakers and a denon ceol n4. With a a Project you have to understand they are not all singing and dancing. The arm isnt automatic, there is a switch to stop and start, you have to adjust the belt for 45 and 33. These were functions I initially wanted. But the trade off is the sound experience and excellent build quality. The lowering of the arm is part of the vinyl experience. In summary, we really pleased with the purchase, and although it was more than we were going to spend, it was worth every penny.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific turntable. Even better service. Terrific turntable. Even better service. I had a (distortion) problem with the original one which was delivered. Called up the store. Salesman personally jumped into a tacit the next day and delivered a new one and installed it for me. Perfect.
