Description

The constantly evolving Austrian manufacturer Pro-Ject has recently released a new version of its famous Debut turntable.

Pro-Ject Debut Carbon Esprit SB DC vinyl turntable

Pro-Ject Debut Carbon Esprit SB DC: motor

Taking its basic inspiration from the new Debut Carbon Esprit vinyl turntable, it also has several new developments of its own, including an AC motor with a new suspension system that uses TPE-damped vibration isolation bushings. They reduce vibration and minimise rumble, thus improving the signal-to-noise ratio.

The motor also features a new bearing with stainless steel spindle.

Pro-Ject Debut Carbon Esprit SB DC: platter

The platter is a 300mm piece of acrylic. This material can be used without a conventional felt platter mat, which stays stuck to the record more often than not.

Unlike when using a steel platter, its low resonance frequency delivers a more neutral and less coloured sound quality.

Pro-Ject Debut Carbon Esprit SB DC: speed change

The Carbon Esprit SB DC’s major innovation is that it now features a built-in electronic speed controller, namely the “Speed Box S”. This lets you switch between 33⅓ and 45 RPM using two small buttons.

However, if you want to play a 78 you still need to change the speed manually by moving the belt, and this should be done when the automatic speed is set to 45 RPM.

Pro-Ject Debut Carbon Esprit SB DC: tonearm and phono cartridge

The tonearm is still the 8.6” carbon fibre model, made from a single piece of carbon fibre weighing 6g! This significantly increases rigidity and provides much improved tonal neutrality and precision in comparison with the aluminium model.

Like the previous model, the Debut Carbon Esprit SB DC comes fitted as standard with the Ortofon 2M Red elliptical cartridge. This can be used with the Ortofon 2M78 stylus if you’re looking to play 78 records.

Pro-Ject Debut Carbon Esprit SB DC: cables

It is worth noting that the tonearm cables are not captive and so the standard cables can easily be replaced by higher quality models, such as Pro-Ject's Connect It range.

Pro-Ject Debut Carbon Esprit SB DC: listening and review

The listening experience is very precise and well balanced. Noise levels are very low, letting the music and detail speak for itself.

The sound stage is quite amazing for a turntable within this price range.

The technical and technological solutions adopted by Pro-Ject have proven once again to be a success. Naturally, it can't compete with the performances of its higher end brothers and sisters, but it has to be said that this turntable can deliver impressively high quality sound reproduction for a product under €500 (that comes fitted with a phono cartridge)!

Its user-friendliness also makes this Pro-Ject Debut Carbon Esprit SB DC the most highly evolved turntable in its price range.

An absolute must!

Platine commandé le jeudi sur internet, reçu le samedi.Bravo pour la rapidité.J'avais une ancienne platine dont je ne donnerai pas la marque car elle existe toujours mais était âgée de plus de vingt ans et qui ne me donnais pas entière satisfaction.Maintenant avec la nouvelle venue c'est que du bonheur, je redécouvre mes vinyles bien qu'ils datent des années 80.Comparaison avec les c.d. d'un même artiste le son est meilleur moins métallique plus chaleureux. J'achète de nouveau des galettes noires .Je remercie toute l'équipe de ma platine.com pour les précieux conseils avant achat.Je suis entièrement content de mon investissement et recommande sans réserve le site de Ma Platine.com.Encore Bravo.Cordialement.

Conseils au top

J'ai changé une platine Technics sb022 qui avait une quinzaine d'année pour le modèle en référence. Les conseils du techniciens ont été très judicieux sur le choix de la platine en fonction de mes écoutes. La restitution son est très fine sur du Metal Je recommande Maplatine, livraison super soignée, réglages impeccables. Merci
