Pro-Ject Debut Carbon DC & Debut Carbon Phono USB Now In The UK

Pro-Ject Debut Carbon DC & Debut Carbon Phono USB Now In The UK

Pro-Ject Debut Carbon DC & Debut Carbon Phono USB Now In The UK

The multi-award winning Debut range is continuing to develop in 2015.

Didcot, Oxfordshire – 9th March, 2015

The Debut Carbon from Pro-Ject Audio Systems has proven to be a revelation for the turntable market since its arrival in 2012. Its superlative features, incredible sound and phenomenal value for money have combined to create a turntable package that has made audio fans around the world stop and take notice to the power of vinyl. Now in 2015, Pro-Ject are breathing new life into the design with some minor improvements, a new finish and the UK introduction of a Phono USB version.

Debut Carbon DC

The Debut Carbon DC takes the existing Debut Carbon design and replaces the captive mains lead with a detachable DC power supply. The use of a DC power supply adds convenience to the set-up, and also allows for the use of a new lower voltage motor; an improvement that is also found on other successful turntables, including the Pro-Ject Essential II and 1 Xpression Carbon UKX.

The DC version also utilises a precision-frequency AC generator board that will give the Debut Carbon motor a cleaner electrical supply than its predecessor, which results in greater efficiency and reduced resonance.


Now Available in Purple!

On top of the seven high-gloss finishes the original Debut Carbon was available in, the Debut Carbon DC is also available in high-gloss Purple (shown). This latest finish further attests to the fact that there really is a Debut Carbon for everyone.

Debut Carbon Phono USB

The Debut Carbon Phono USB brings even more convenience to the Debut Carbon DC design. The integrated phono stage is designed to perfectly complement the pre-fitted Ortofon 2M Red cartridge, so there’s no need for an external phono stage. Now you can simply hook-up to a pair of powered speakers or go straight into a LINE input on an amplifier with no additional boxes or cables needed. The additional USB output means you can also transcribe your vinyl to a connected computer, allowing you to also enjoy your precious vinyl in a digital format. The USB output runs alongside the analogue output, so even when recording to PC you can still enjoy the record through your main hi-fi system.

The Debut Carbon DC is available in the UK now in the following finishes:

Black, Blue, Green, Light Grey, Purple, Red, White, Yellow

SRP £325.00

The Debut Carbon Phono USB will be available in the UK from April 2015, in the following finishes:
