Pro-Ject Debut Carbon DC Esprit SB

$849.00

Debut Carbon Esprit SB DC

Audiophile’s most-wanted turntable. Now with a carbon fibre tonearm, DC power supply, acrylic platter and integrated electronic Speed Box. 

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 into the “mass market”, something all music lovers could afford. The new Debut Carbon DC Esprit SB has been designed to set new standards in this category for the coming decade, perfectly timed, as analogue is once again becoming the most respected source.

The biggest improvement is the inclusion of a carbon tube for the tonearm, which increases stiffness and decreases unwanted resonance. This material 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 for 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 an ultra precision frequency DC-driven AC generator for greater speed stability without unwanted vibration. The full-width acrylic platter on the Esprit model is heavier than other materials, ensuring less resonances and a stunning design.

Debut Carbon DC Esprit SB

Overview

The new DEBUT CARBON DC ESPRIT SB was 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 with all speeds is growing fast!

The CARBON TUBE for the tonearm increases stiffness and decreases unwanted resonance. This material normally is extensively used in highend 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, ultra precision frequency DC driven AC generator for ultimate speed stability. Ultimate convenience is achieved, because of electronic speed change with built in Speed Box and the possibility of playing 78rpm. A simple exchange of stylus to 2M78 (not included) and a drive belt turnover to larger diameter of pulley is required, that´s all!

This turntable comes prefitted with a premium Ortofon 2M Red cartridge.
