Pro-Ject Debut Carbon DC Esprit SB - Red
The Most-Wanted Audiophile Design Turntable With Carbon Tonearm, Acrylic Platter, and DC Power Supply!The first Debut turntable, introduced in the late 1990s, was a revolution for the hi-fi industry. For the first time after the arrival of Compact Disc and the assumed demise of vinyl records, an analogue product re-emerged in the “mass market” – something all music lovers could afford. The new DEBUT CARBON ESPRIT (DC) has been designed to set new standards in this category for the coming decade – perfectly timed as analogue today is again a respected source, while the demand for good turntables is growing again!
The most obvious improvement is the inclusion of a CARBON TUBE for the tonearm, which increases stiffness and decreases unwanted resonance. This material normally is extensively used in high-end tonearms, but – because of cost reasons – was never used in products at lower price levels. Together with other improvements like an increase in platter size and weight to realize even smoother rotation the overall sound quality is greatly improved. The approved belt drive design offers low noise AC motor with effective motor decoupling (utilising TPE damping) and ultra precision frequency DC-driven AC generator (like Speed Box) for ultimate speed stability without unwanted vibration.

Best TT under $600 hands down
Got as a replacement for my broken music hall MMF-7. Right out of the box took less than 15 minutes to set up. Sound is engaging and rivals my MMF-7 that retailed for $1100 when I purchased it. Using Musical surroundings phenomena II it is an absolute joy to listen to. Have spent months now listening to old faves from my 700 LP collection. If you want to get a hifi TT but don’t want to break the bank def check this unit out. Great value and top quality build. Ortophon red is paired perfectly to table. Brings out surprising amount of detail.
