"This UK-only special improves on an already talented original. The attractive and versatile Debut SE3 is a fine buy." What Hi-Fi Sound & Vision magazine.

A classic, now better than ever

Designed specifically for the UK market, the S/E3 version of the Debut comes with a larger and more stable platter. This provides a more solid bass response with added weight. Improved motor dampening gives better isolation, while in terms of sound quality, isolating the motor means less background noise and a more dynamic and revealing sound.

Superbly engineered
The rigid plinth with anti-vibration feet is ideal in providing a similarly taut sound quality. The motor is decoupled to further reduce vibration and, 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. The Project 8.6s tone-arm now features a one-piece design for improved rigidity around the headshell area. This means that less detail is lost and more information can be heard.

Improved styling too
With its new gloss black plinth, the Debut S/E3 looks far classier than before. Combined with its high quality engineering, this Pro-Ject turntable really does give the impression that it comes from the class above.

If it's quality vinyl playback you're after, without the gimmicks, then there's simply none better than the Pro-Ject Debut S/E3.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous looks - stunning sound I originally auditioned the Pro-ject Essential turntable but I purchased the Pro-ject Debut SE3 as it had an upgraded cartridge - Ortofon Super OM10. I've now had the Pro-ject Debut SE3 turntable for 10days and am amazed at the stunning reproduction from my old records from the 60's&70's. I've been listening to both classical and rock.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Check before leaving the store This is a great turntable, easy to set up. There is a video on how to set it up online, which if you follow that it is even easier to set it up. There was a batch problem with the one I received, it came with a Euro plug, but customer service was excellent and sorted it extremely quickly, so within a couple of days It was up and running. The only thing I would suggest in the long run would be to upgrade the cartridge for even better sound

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great little turntable Bought this for second system. I have owned a good turntable (LP12, Ekos, Lingo, Linto) so was prepared to be thoroughly underwhelmed but in fact was pleasantly surprised. Easy setup. Only intial problem was the very noisy hum from the wall wart. Sorted by the ever fantastic staff at the Newcastle branch. Thsi will be a keeper.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from project debut 3se i'm absolutely delighted with my debut 3se, the extra levels of sound compared with my cheapo all in one player are unparalleled.its sleek and sophisticated and i love it.i'm glad i spent the extra cash as i was considering the project primary but the debut gives me better upgrade options in the future but with the ortofon super om10 cartridge straight out of the box it will probably be a couple of years before I even need to consider an upgrade.great tt ,easy setup, even easier to use,great looks, wonderful sound.i couldn't ask for anything more for the price.thanks to the guys at Richer Sounds Birmingham.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful piece of kit I was recommended by a friend to buy this deck and I have to say he was right , the feel, sound and action of the unit is lovely. My only comment would be that the instruction manual wasn't quite clear enough for me to follow particularly around the setting up of the band drive belt , I went on you tube where I found a great independent demo, they may want to do some you tube content themselves and refer to it in the manual.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sounds amazing I purchased a cheap second hand deck off Ebay last year to see if I would get back into listening to records. It was ok but nothing special. I recently got a Teac TN400 (Bought elsewhere). The quality over the cheap turntable was huge and sounded so much better. However I had problems with it. I had 2 of them and the same issue so got a refund. I visited the Glasgow store with the intention of getting the Essential 3 but they had none in stock. The salesman offered a discount on the 3A which I was going to go for until I noticed the Debut SE3 £20 more so went for that. Got home and set it up and have to say I was blown away. For only £25 more than the Teac the Difference in sound quality was quite noticible. Far more detail and seperation, particularily in the highs and also better bass. Overall this is great deck and I would highly recomend it.
