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 analog product re-emerged in the "mass market" – something all music lovers could afford. Because Debut Carbon DC USB comes with pre-mounted cartridge and built-in phono preamplifier with USB output, connection to both line-level input of your hifi system and recording of vinyl to PC/Mac easily can be done simultaneously.
The new Pro-Ject Debut Carbon DC USB has been designed to set new
standards in this category for the coming decade – perfectly timed as
analog 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, the overall sound
quality is greatly improved. The approved belt drive design offers low
noise AC motor with effective motor decoupling (utilizing TPE-damping)
and ultra precision frequency DC-driven AC generator for ultimate speed
stability without unwanted vibration.
