Debut Carbon Evo

Taking its name from the multi-award winning Debut Carbon turntable, the Debut Carbon EVO expands on its predecessor’s features, finishes and technical abilities thanks to newly developed engineering capabilities.

At the centre of the Debut Carbon EVO’s design is its 8.6” one-piece carbon fibre tonearm.

Chosen for its optimal acoustic properties, carbon fibre is rarely found on turntables below £500, allowing the Debut Carbon EVO to stand apart from the competition as a special proposition.

In combination with the pre-mounted Ortofon 2M Red moving magnet cartridge, special sapphire bearings, high-purity copper internal tonearm wiring and shielded termination box, the tonearm system delivers a true high-end sound quality with a detailed sound presentation that conveys every musical emotion.

Structurally, the Debut Carbon EVO is most recognised by its expertly finished main chassis, available in nine elegant finish options.

The traditional rectangular footprint has a timeless minimalism, and is made of MDF for its excellent anti-resonant properties, and this tendency to minimal vibrations continues throughout the Debut design.

The in-house designed and manufactured AC drive motor is made to fine tolerances for minimal noise, but to further eliminate any potential interference the motor is decoupled from the main chassis by a new mounting plate with TPE-damping.

The mounting plate isolates the motor while still keeping it perfectly level with the sub-platter drive system for absolute speed stability.

The turntable plinth also sits on three height-adjustable aluminium feet with TPE-damping to ensure an absolutely stable platform with good isolation from the shelf it is placed upon.

Out of the box, the Debut Carbon EVO is capable of playing 33, 45 and 78 RPM records.

The new speed control solution is implemented in a highly intuitive fashion using a three-position rocker switch (33 – OFF – 45).

For precise speed at 78 RPM, a separate drive-belt is included. As well as bringing convenience to the overall design, the speed control system also ensures the motor rotation is electronically regulated for absolute accuracy and stability.

The motor drives a sub-platter system for a more elegant overall aesthetic.

The sub-platter is mounted into a precision-engineered stainless steel main bearing with bronze bushing.

The sub-platter sits beneath the heavy main steel platter with TPE damping.

This proven drive system experiences minimal friction and allows for excellent technical measurements and unrivalled speed stability.

The Debut Carbon Evo is a truly accomplished turntable with audiophile credibility throughout.

With nine finishes to choose from, there is something to suit any home environment – allowing your passion for vinyl music to take centre stage.

Finished with a removable, hinged dust cover and supplied as standard with Pro-Ject’s semi-balanced, low-capacitance, shielded, turntable-ready

Connect-IT E phono cables and an Ortofon 2M Red cartridge pre-installed, the Debut Carbon Evo is the worthy evolution of an audio icon, guaranteed to delight and amaze all who encounter it.
