The Pro-Ject Debut Carbon is one of Pro-Ject’s iconic decks. It features an 8.6 inch carbon fibre tonearm, a 12 inch platter, a rear-mounted junction box, and a new motor isolation system with a unique rubber compound for dramatically reduced resonance transference from the high-quality 230V motor.

Key features include

  • 8.6 inch one-piece carbon fibre tonearm.
  • High-quality counterweight.
  • Two isolation ‘feet’ to decouple the motor from the plinth.
  • 12 inch platter.
  • Junction box installed, allowing for the easy upgrade of turntable interconnects.
  • New power supply.
  • Factory-fitted Ortofon 2M Red.
  • Various high-gloss finishes available.
  • Hinged dustcover included.

Please note: you’ll need a phono stage to use the Debut Carbon. Also, this model will not work with the Pro-Ject Speed Box. Speed change is operated manually, or electronically via the Speed Box S/E.

Press Reviews

“The Debut delivers an impressively clean and insightful sound, one that digs deep while keeping a firm hold of the overall musical structure. It’s not just clinical reproduction though – we’re taken with the Pro-ject’s expressive nature, too. Move on to the likes of Holst’s Planet Suite and the Debut Carbon continues to impress with high detail levels, relatively wide dynamics and a pleasing subtlety. Put it all together and you have a product that sounds at home on all types of music and that, for the money, is generally well built.”

WhatHiFi

“With its full-size platter and smart-looking arm, the Debut in Carbon form does offer an uplift in performance in return for a modest price increase, and certainly gets quite striking results from the gutsy-sounding Ortofon 2M Red cartridge.”

HiFiNews

“In action, the Debut Carbon really surprised with its ability to reproduce the tone of voice and instruments in all the music I used. Yet the Pro-Ject skilfully avoids any of the many traps set by the LP format; budget decks can often sound speed-unstable or edgy and the Debut does not. For the money, it’s an essential audition.”

HiFiChoice

“Whether for first-time turntable buyers or anyone wishing to enjoy high-quality LP playback without spending a lot of money, Pro-Ject’s Debut Carbon is a great way to go.”
