Debut Carbon Esprit SB Turntable

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. The deck can also spin at 78 RPM by switching the pulley to the larger rung and setting the speed changer to '45/78' (Please Note: 78 RPM records require a special stylus - Pro-Ject recommend the 2M 78 Stylus for this turntable).

As well as being convenient, the speed control system also allows for smoother motor operation - further reducing unwanted resonances along with the improved motor isolation. The new motor isolation system utilises a wholly unique rubber compound developed exclusively by Ortofon A/S to offer dramatically reduced resonance transference from the high-quality 9V motor the turntable employs.

Another sonic benefit is found in the Esprit's included platter upgrade. Acrylic is 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.

The Debut Carbon Esprit SB is available in three stylish, high-gloss colours - black, white or red.
