Product Description

Pro-Ject Debut Carbon Phono USB is the acclaimed Debut Carbon Turntable with a USB Phono Stage, a pre-mounted cartridge and a built-in phono preamplifier simplifying the connection to both the line-level of your hi-fi system and recording of your vinyl to computer.

Award Winning Range

The Pro-Ject Debut Carbon turntable is a multi-award winning and updated version of the much-loved Debut turntable, which is available in 3 fantastic high gloss finishes, a carbon tonearm and several upgrades for improved sound performance.  Debut Carbon turntable has a strong history behind it, the Debut first transformed the turntable industry in the late 1990s and has continued since then.

With the prediction of the demise of vinyl, coupled with the emergence of compact discs, the Debut was introduced as a mass market turntable; a hi-fi turntable for music lovers with a budget. The Debut Carbon is the latest incarnation of Pro-Jects Debut range and is assuredly the best ever and features a carbon tonearm, which is usually only found on more expensive models.

Enhanced Sound

The carbon tonearm improves the turntable's performance by increasing stiffness and decreasing unwanted resonance.  Coupled with other improvements, such as the increased platter size and weight to produce an even smoother rotation, and the new design in motor suspension results in a significant improvement in sound quality over earlier models. The improvements within the Debut Carbon design mean the turntable is much smoother and more stable, resulting in a sound with deeper blacks, which is less background noise on quieter passages, and improved dynamics.

Key Features

- 8.6" carbon tonearm
- Increased platter in size and weight
- Precision belt drive with a synchronous motor
- New Sorbothane motor suspension
- Cartridge options: Ortofon OM 10 or 2M Red
- 3 high-gloss colour options, Black, Red, and White
- Felt mat included

Press Reviews

  • You can't go wrong with the Pro-Ject Carbon. It's not the newest turnatable around, and the competition may be tough, but even after a few years it has proved that it is still among the class leaders at this price. (What Hi-Fi Magazine Oct 14)

  • "The Debut delivers an impressively clean and insightful sound, one that digs deep while keeping a firm hold of the overall music structure. It's not just clinical reproduction though - we're taken with the Pro-Ject's expressive nature, too"(What Hi-Fi? Magazine)

  • "For the money, it's an essential audition" (Hi-Fi Choice Magazine)

  • "With its full-size platter and smart-looking arm, the Debut in Carbon form does offer an uplift in performance in return for a modest price increase, and certainty gets quite striking results from the gutsy-sounding Ortofon 2M Red cartridge...a convincing package at this price point" (Hi-Fi News Magazine May 2012)

  • "I felt that the Debut Carbon was quite appealingly communicative and made for an absorbing listen" (Hi-Fi News Magazine)
