Pro-Ject has added a new addition to its affordable Debut series of turntables. They present the Debut Carbon Evolution.
That the word Carbon appears in the new Pro-Ject turntable is not strange. The tonearm is in fact made of carbon fiber. Which also has an integrated ‘connector’ for the element.
The Debut Carbon Evolution also comes standard with a Sumiko Rainier cartridge. The bearings are based on sapphire, which has an extremely low friction. In terms of rotational speeds, you can choose between 33, 45 and 78 rpm. The turntable weighs 1.7 kilos and is made of cast aluminium with TPE damping. The motor is also equipped with TPE (Thermo-Plastic Elastomer) damping and the internal cable of the tone arm consists of one piece that runs directly to the gold-plated RCA connections.
The Pro-Ject Debut Carbon Evolution turntable is available in nine different finishes. And that includes various eight-layer hand-painted high-gloss, matte or walnut veneers. Another practical feature is the dust cap, which is also supplied as standard. As promised, all this beauty does not cost very much. To be precise you pay $499, which is a nice price to make the step into the wonderful world of vinyl.
The newcomer is available from September. By the way, at the time of writing there is still nothing on the site of Pro-Ject about the Debut Carbon Evolution, we found the above images on the Australian site of Stereonet.
