Superb new turntable from Project, this is a nice update of the Debut range that adds an acrylic platter to overcome the resonance issues inherent in the old steel platters.
And then they added a carbon fibre tonearm to further reduce resonance and a speed box to overcome the inconvenience of belt changes for 33/45.
The results are a fantastic deck that frankly sounds like it should cost double, even before you play with the possibilities of personalising cartridges. Oh and it looks beautiful, no bad thing with a turntable!
The Debut Carbon Esprit SB is available in three stylish, high-gloss colours, Black, Red, white…
Debut Carbon Esprit SB
The all-new Debut Carbon Esprit SB turntable from Pro-Ject Audio takes the hugely successful, multi-award winning Carbon design and adds even more to the already impressive package. On top of the new 8.6CC carbon fibre tonearm, new power supply method, improved motor isolation pre-installed Ortofon 2M Red and new cable junction box found on the standard Debut Carbon; the Esprit SB version also uses a totally new speed control principle to allow for easy changing between 33 1/3 RPM and 45RPM.
As well as being convenient, the speed control system also allows for smoother motor operation – further reducing unwanted resonances. Another sonic benefit is found in the Esprit’s included platter upgrade. Acrylic is a an excellent playback platform, as it offers almost no resonance in the audible frequencies and negates the need for a slipmat which can sometimes cause problems.
