It all started in Vienna in the late 80's. At the time, an Austrian man named Heinz Lichtenegger noticed that the leading manufacturers in the Hi-Fi industry were gradually leaving analogue products to one side, and the little effort they put in these products resulted in expensive turntables.
That was when Pro-Ject Debut was born
Concerned with reviving the turntable's long-lost aura, he was intent on making it an affordable commodity for everyone. He firmly believed that there was still a demand for the product and was convinced by his idea, though he realised that he was swimming against the tide. The legendary Pro-Ject I vinyl turntable was then created, followed by many other models like the 1Xpression, Pro-Ject Debut and 2Xperience. The company's product range has since been enhanced with turntables that accommodate all tastes and budgets. The Pro-Ject Debut III turntable took the world by storm and is now a leader in the record player market. Buying a Pro-Ject Debut turntable is like taking part in the great adventure and vision of its creator, and entering the world of audiophiles.
Pro-Ject Debut, and a legend was born
Pro-Ject recently celebrated its 20th anniversary and Heinz Lichtenegger can certainly be proud of what has been accomplished. The Pro-ject Debut turntable is a great commercial success worldwide. Let's face it, the Pro-Ject Debut turntable has all you could ask for: a refined design, a wide colour range, flawless manufacturing quality and an affordable price. The Pro-ject Debut is a turntable for everyone. The red or blue model will find a home with a young trendy couple. The piano black version will elegantly sit on top of a designer piece of furniture. The white version is a genuine luxury commodity and is a decorative item in its own right. The latest model, the Pro-Ject Debut III, builds on the Pro-Ject Debut II design, complete with a few useful upgrades. It is one of our favourite turntables for its quality-to-price ratio!
