TTL Setup: Pro-Ject Debut Carbon Evo / Kanto Speakers


1.0 SET UP KANTO SPEAKERS

1.1

Unpack your Kanto speakers and locate the accessories and cables as shown. The clear speaker wire will be used to connect the (2) speakers together.

1.2

Position your speakers. NOTE: Position the powered unit on the left.  

1.3

Plug in your speakers and connect them together using the speaker wire.

IMPORTANT: make sure the RCA switch is set to "PHONO" (this activates the speakers' Phono Preamp).

2.0 SET UP YOUR DEBUT CARBON EVO TURNTABLE

2.1

Unpack the dustcover, turntable body, and platter. Locate the power supply which is packed in a small white box and the counterweight which is embedded in the styrofoam. You can leave the dustcover wrapped up for now.

Now locate the instruction manual bag. We recommend following Pro-Ject's visual guide for setting up your turntable. Please note the bag also includes the Turntable Belt and RCA cable.

⬇️ you can download a PDF of the Pro-Ject Setup Guide here.

2.2

Plug in the turntable's RCA cable + groundwire to the speaker as shown.

3.0 PLAY A RECORD!

3.1

Place a record on the turntable, hit the power switch on the bottom-left side of the turntable (the platter should start to spin), then place the needle on the record (if you’re new to vinyl, you may want to use your turntable’s lift lever to gently lower the needle onto the record).

3.2

Press the volume knob to cycle through the inputs until hear your turntable (you can also press the "RCA" button on the remote). MUSICA!

4.0 UPGRADES (SOLD SEPARATELY)

4.1

When it's time to switch styluses (we recommend once a year if you're a daily user), the Sumiko Oyster Series features an Interchangeable Stylus System. This means you can use any of the styluses in the Oyster Series, instead of buying a whole new cartridge. In addition to saving money, the styluses slide on and off for easy, no-tool installation. The Olympia Stylus ($119) is one level up from the stock Rainer, while the Moonstone Stylus ($229) represents the top of the line.

4.2

The Debut Alu Sub-Platter Upgrade ($159) replaces the lightweight plastic sub-platter that's underneath the EVO's platter. This heavier, machined part (weighs 1.5 lbs) will dampen unwanted noise and resonance, increase overall speed accuracy and improve wow & flutter.

4.3

Kanto Speaker Stands displace speaker vibrations from your turntable and look great. They are available in table-top and floorstanding models.

4.4

Turntable Lab: Triple Operation Brush ($25) - The Carbon Fiber brush that came included with your setup is great for everyday usage (we use one in our office). However, our new Triple Operation brush is on another level in terms of effectiveness with dual cleaning pads plus an integrated carbon fiber brush.
