LAB REVIEW

The Pro-Ject Debut USB Carbon turntable is a resouding upgrade to their popular Debut III turntable. The Debut Carbon USB features an Ortofon OM10 Cartridge upgrade for fuller richer sound (better sound than Ortofon OM5e that came with the Debut III), a Carbon Fiber tonearm usually found in higher end turntables, and a completely redesigned, vibration-dampening inner-body. Boasting an excellent price point, but with improved hi-fi features, USB connectivity, and better cartridge, the Debut Carbon USB is an excellent entry to mid-level audiophile deck or a simply beautiful looking listening turntable.

Beyond its sleek exterior, the quality features run deep with the aforementioned upgrades plus a low-tolerance chrome-plated stainless-steel axle that runs on a polished ball bearing in a brass bearing housing; a reduced vibration motor; and resonance damping feet. All of those features equate to a better listening experience versus your basic $200.00 turntable. A consistent bestseller online and at our stores, highly recommended.
