"Pro-Ject's X Series is the next evolution of the Debut series. The series consolidates the price range above the Debut Series with features found on Pro-Ject super high-end turntables (increased mass, high-end tonearm, isolation feet, quality cartridge) while maintaining the convenience of electronic speed control and a pre-mounted cartridge. The next generation of the X-line is the 'B' series, providing a 5-pin mini XLR output with the ability to achieve true balanced sound." - TTL
