”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 Fantastic turntable for the money I compared a lot of turntables before purchase, but kept returning to the Debut III S Audiophile. It's well made, beautifully crafted and performs like a much more expensive turntable. And just look at that tone arm! The set up was fairly straightforward, with a bit of help from YouTube, and the sound was impressive from the first play. I'm hearing things in my records that I'd never noticed before. All in all, the Audiophile lives up to its name and is unbeatable at this price, performing in a higher bracket than similarly-priced competitors. Perfect for a starter setup or to upgrade from a cheaper deck without breaking the bank. Get it while it's still in stock, because it won't be around forever.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing sound & great value for money! Had been waiting to get a record player for over a year (new house, baby etc) so had spent a lot of time doing research on what to buy. Had my eye on a Rega Planar 2, which is around £400, as sound quality was my main priority. However, after reading extensively I found that this turntable provided a level of sound detail on par with the Rega Planar 2 and for an average price of £150 less... it was a no brainer! I found the Rega 1, which was the samw price, a bit lightweight in build and depth of sound. The build on this turntable is excellent. It's very weighty, the aluminium sound dampening feet are very sturdy and the S-Shaped tonearm just looks great! I've had several comments of how classy it looks! The option to upgrade the cables at the back also future proofs it to some extent. As I mentioned, sound quality was my main priority and I was not disappointed... The sound quality is also incredible! The cartridge and stylus have picked up minute details I had never heard before on songs I have listened to hundreds of times... It has breathed new life into my favourite albums like I wouldn't have expected. The only thing that put me off was having to manually change the speed by removing the platter and moving the belt. After doing this a few times I wondered why it even out me off as it is not a problem. I would highly recommend this turntable if you are looking for anything around the £250 mark with sound quality of turntables around the £400. I combined mine with the Pro-Ject Phono Box MM, Denon PMA 225UK amp and Eltax Monitor 3 speakers & I am very happy with how great the whole setup sounds. Would highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality for the money I bought this to upgrade my previous turntable, and I have not regretted it! It was a bit fiddly to set up the tone arm but found very helpful steps on YouTube. The sound detail is stunningly good, and the build quality is on point. I'm very happy with my purchase - highly recommended!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent sounding table I had been using an old technics deck and was unsure if a new budget table would actually sound better but I am very pleased to say that it does. The pro-ject sounds great and produces really enjoyable room filling sound. It feels well built and it's easy to set up. I know that you can spend a great deal more but I'm very pleased with it and think it would be a great table for most people.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality sound Bought this turntable as the first component of a relatively small budget audiophile setup. Used this so far with a Cambridge Audio Duo Pre-amp / Headphone amp and Musical Fidelity Headphones and it sounds faultless. Amazingly clear and dynamic but also balanced and detailed. Easy set up, looks great, overall I am very very happy with this turntable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for a vinyl returnee I had been wanting to get a turntable for a couple of years so that I could rediscover my vinyl which had been in the loft for almost 30 years since I went all digital. Did a bit of homework and thought I knew what I wanted until I saw the Pro-ject Debut IIIS Audiophile on special offer at Richer Sounds. This helped me make my mind up. Checked that the Cardiff store had it in stock and popped over in my lunch break. Turned out that the sales guy has this turntable too which helped convince me I had made a good choice. A touch fiddly to set up but no big deal. The Pro-ject looks great in gloss black and the S-shaped tone arm is cool. It was a momentous moment when I played the first LP, Led Zeppelin from 50 years ago. It sounded superb despite the occasional clicks and pops. Part of the attraction of vinyl I guess. Other things I like are the adjustable feet and the better quality (and fully removable) connectors. Also the Ortofon cartridge. All in all, a great turntable which has helped me rediscover music I haven't heard in many a year. I am one happy bunny! Recommended.
