PRO-JECT’S NEW DEBUT Carbon turntable promises to offer even more value for money and higher performance than the preceding model. The biggest change is the addition of an 8.6-inch carbon fibre tonearm that increases stiffness while decreasing unwanted resonances.
Fitted to the carbon fibre arm is the OM10 cartridge by Ortofon. The resonance-reducing MDF plinth supports a heavier 300mm diameter metal platter for smoother rotation and lower wow and flutter. A felt record mat is employed for superior record support and coupling. The platter and plinth assembly sits upon four-point “O”-ring feet designed for energy absorption, and the plinth-mounted motor is isolated by a new Sorbothane suspension keeping unwanted noise and vibration to a bare minimum.
Chassis-mounted RCA output jacks allow for the use of higher quality interconnects for even better sonic performance.
The Debut Carbon is offered in five high-gloss fashion colours (Black, Red, Blue, Silver or White) and a full-sized hinged dustcover is included, at an RRP of $699
