Pro-Ject Debut Carbon Esprit SB (DC) (Cartridge Included)

£469.00

Audiophile „best buy“ 3-speed turntable

Carbon tonearm, 3 speeds and acrylic platter!

The Debut Carbon Esprit SB (DC) brings all the benefits of the Debut Carbon (DC) but adds an electronic speed change and an acrylic platter. It is the perfect turntable to listen to LPs and singles, but also 78 rpm shellac records.

The most obvious improvement is the inclusion of a Carbon tube for the tonearm, which increases stiffness and decreases unwanted resonance. 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 a low noise AC motor with effective motor decoupling (utilising TPE-damping) and ultra precision frequency DC-driven AC generator (like the Speed Box) for ultimate speed stability without unwanted vibration. The acrylic platter gives the sound a natural liveliness, free from discoloration and resonance. There is no longer a need for a felt mat between the record and the platter. The included Phono RCA cable, Connect it E, is a high-quality semi-balanced interconnect cable with gold-plated RCA connectors that guarantees the perfect connection.
