Pro-Ject Debut Carbon DC - White
The Best-buy Turntable Classic With Carbon Tonearm 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 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.
The DEBUT CARBON DC will be offered in high-gloss black or shiny red, green, blue, yellow, silver or white as no-added-cost option.
Ratings & Reviews
This is an excellent turntable, It's performance level makes it difficult to call this an entry table. The stock ortofon red sounds great, the table makes no noise. I have this table connected directly to my Denon X4000's phono input, it makes zero noise/hum and sounds terrific. I added the $85 puck and plan on upgrading the platter to the acrylic platter. The only reason I removed a star was due to the too thin felt mat that was provided. I would not be upgrading the platter if it were not for the felt mat, any bit of static and it will stick to your record. Aside from that I love this table and looks great in white on top of my black audio stand. You will love this table.
