The Pro-ject Debut Carbon DC 2m Red is a belt driven award-winning turntable with manual speed adjustment from 33 to 45. It’s made up of a heavy 300mm metal platter, a light 8.6inch carbon fibre tone arm and comes with an Ortofon 2M red cartridge and stylus pre assembled. It comes with a clear dust cover, precise DC motor, anti-skating and weight adjustment. This system is great out the box and has the ability to be upgraded to customise the sound. It also comes in a variety of colours.
'Vinyl won't survive,' they said, throughout the transition era where tapes reigned supreme and CDs started to emerge. When music started to be digitised, compressed, and turned into something it wasn't. They didn't count on us remembering that classic sound, that quality, that had the potential to move us.
And then we came along with the Debut model. Beginning production in the late 90s in the Czech town of Litovel, East of Prague, we wanted to change the game with a low cost turntable that could bring that experience back. So we did.
Today's Debut Carbon is a very different turntable, with precision as a big factor on top of design and sound quality. In line with turntables with a much higher price tag, the Debut Carbon has a carbon fibre tonearm and heavy platter to reduce resonance for smooth, clear music, and comes pre-fitted with the Ortofon 2M Red cartridge to match. The model also sports a DC power supply for precise speed stability and reduced vibrations.
