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 analog product re-emerged in the "mass market" - something all music lovers could afford.
The new Debut Carbon DC Record Player 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.

Comments about Pro-Ject Debut Carbon DC Record Player:
I bought one of these about a month ago. It comes with an Ortofon cartridge installed. Has the standard mount if one wants to replace or upgrade the cartridge. Personally I am happy with the Ortofon for now. I have heard this model called "entry level" and the only entry level thing is the price. I've been a stereo nerd since the 70's and have had many turntables. I think this one is the best designed and engineered one of them all. It's simplicity and attention to details rival turntables costing 2 to3 times as much. When I was unpackaging the box I could "feel" the quality of the components. Although the cartridge is pre mounted I would double check the stylus weight which is 1.8 G. The only things to install are the belt, platter and the anti skating weight (if you're old like me use your reading glasses for the last task). This turntable is proof that one can still buy an audiophile turntable at a typical consumer grade price.
