Product Description

The first Debut turntable, introduced in the late 1990s, was a revolution for the hi-fi industry. For the first time after the arrival of Compact Disc and the assumed demise of vinyl records, an analogue product re-emerged in the mass market something all music lovers could afford. The new DEBUT Carbon has been designed to set new standards in this category for the coming decade perfectly timed as analogue today is again a respected source, while the demand for good turntables is growing again! The most obvious improvement is the inclusion of a CARBON TUBE for the tonearm, which increases stiffness and decreases unwanted resonance. This material normally 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 to realize even smoother rotation and new design in motor suspension, the overall sound quality is greatly improved.

I have been giving consideration to a number of turntables due to selling off my previous and very expensive deck,arm and cartridge combo which had given me good service for over 20 years. As I am now a mainly computer based music lover and now having a record collection which has dwindled over the years I decided to raise a little cash for other things and downgrade the vinyl side. After reading reviews (as you do) I fancied the Project Genie 3 mainly due to the skeletal design but the lack of a dust cover was the eventual killer of that idea. Although I had set a £200 upper price limit initially I decided to go a little further and paid £270 for the Project Debut Carbon in beautiful Piano Black finish complete with the Ortofon 2M Red cartridge. Set up was very straightforward and I was listening to music within15 mins. I must admit as my previous turntable cost 4x as much as the Carbon I did expect to be a little underwhelmed, boy ! was I wrong, the Carbon was so close to the performance of my old deck that in a blind comparison I don't think I could have said which was which, a tremendous accomplishment for the Carbon considering the enormous price differential. After several hours of listening to music of mixed genres I did reach the conclusion that the Carbon had a slightly more forward presentation than my old deck, but it was very marginal and it could possibly be due the cartridge being new and "stiff",perhaps the difference will be even less when the cartridge is "run in", Considering the deck is a solid plinth design it does a very good job of feedback isolation as I have it positioned only a couple of feet away from one of my speakers. All in all I'm delighted with both the performance and look of the well engineered deck, I expected the purchase to be a downgrade but it certainly was not, highly recommended.

I'm brand new to vinyl. I've had a love of music since being very young, as have probably most people reading this review.

I did a lot of research in the beginning as I was starting from the ground up, having no prior knowledge of this medium. I quickly found that it was going to be an investment, rather than a purchase. I originally thought about getting a cheaper turntable, or trying to resurrect my Dad's old turntable from the dead. But I wanted quality, reliability and simplicity. Less is more. I wanted something modern looking, too.

So quickly my budget went from about £100, to whatever I could find that had a sturdy entry level spec, looked good, but didn't break the bank. And I came across the manufacturer Pro-Ject. At first, I looked at the less expensive models. But I figured this is an investment, and the fact that the Debut Carbon Premium comes with a pre fitted Ortofon 2M cartridge was a huge plus, since it's had good reviews. Also, I liked the fact it has a carbon fibre arm, a more substantial base, and looks 'the business'.

It arrived promptly and very well packaged. Now, I had never really used a turntable, never mind set one up! So I set to, but quickly became baffled with the balancing of the tone arm. The instructions were sufficient for the rest of the assembly but some research was required for this part. I found a great Youtube video here ---> http://goo.gl/PAzHH8 . Bearing this in mind, the setup still only took 20-30 minutes, being careful with everything as I didn't want to muck it up!

Once I had the rest of my setup i.e. amp and speakers all wired up, it was finally time to listen to it in action. I'm no stranger to quality audio, listening to FLAC files through in ear monitors etc...

I had a Linn Turntable and the bearings went, it was just too expensive for me to have mended. Over the years though I had bought little LP's on vinyl disappointed with the like of Adel's 21 which was an exact copy of the CD which was such poor sound quality. So after reading reviews on this turntable i decided to go for a mid range price range and ordered it. As with all good turntables it was belt driven reducing the wow and flutter and motor noise that you get with direct drive. I played a single first it sounded ok, infact I was quite impressed. I then for some reason decided to listen to Tango in the Night - Fleetwood Mac, which I also have on CD. I bought the CD back in 1987 when it was originally released the LP I picked up for £2.00 shortly after. I was amazed listening to the Vinyl revealed so much more depth to the recording I could hear lower range sounds from the keyboard on Everywhere, the guitar was amazing on songs like tango in the night and the CD player i have is a Naim top of the range player, so it gets the best out of the CD, but also shows bad masters for what they are. So i am now going to record this album on to CD from the Vinyl. All in all its a solid turntable the sound is warm full of depth and I would recommended this to anyone thinking of not getting rid of all their LPs.

Highly recommend this product. The last turntable I bought was a Dual 25 years+ back and I paid a similar amount. After it finally stopped working I went for the What Hi Fi recommendation as was not disappointed. Brilliant
