Pro-Ject Debut Carbon Esprit SB Turntable with Ortofon 2M RED Cartridge


Pro-Ject Debut Carbon Esprit SB has been designed to set new standards in this category for the coming decade – perfectly timed, as analogue is once again becoming the most respected source. Three colour options.

Type: Turntable

The biggest improvement is the inclusion of a carbon tube for the tonearm, which increases stiffness and decreases unwanted resonance. This material 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 for 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 an ultra precision frequency DC-driven AC generator for greater speed stability without unwanted vibration. The full-width acrylic platter on the Esprit model is heavier than other materials, ensuring less resonances and a stunning design.
