In the mid-90s, at the height of the Compact Disc, Pro-Ject set a goal: bring back the analog sound experience. Pro-Ject decided to create a turntable that could deliver true analog sound at a price that a new, younger generation of record lovers could afford. It must sound great, be simple in setup and pleasing to use, then exude quality while remaining affordable.
Note: This is a pre-order. Walnut & High Gloss Black finishes are expected to begin shipping by mid-October. Other finishes may have longer lead times. Please contact us if you have questions on finish availability.
In the mid-90s, at the height of the Compact Disc, Pro-Ject set a goal: bring back the analog sound experience. Pro-Ject decided to create a turntable that could deliver true analog sound at a price that a new, younger generation of record lovers could afford. It must sound great, be simple in setup and pleasing to use, then exude quality while remaining affordable. It should also come in a range of colors so it could serve as a centerpiece in any home. The first units that came off the production line in 1999 were a runaway success. They quickly scaled up production to meet the demands of a new wave of analog enthusiasts that the industry had forgotten about. After more than 20 years, the Debut is still one of the best-selling turntables in the history of Hi-Fi with close to 1 million units sold. The Debut made listening to vinyl an affordable option for music lovers, while its clean, minimalist aesthetic and premium finish options helped make analog fashionable again. They have continually improved upon the Debut formula, adopting new technologies and trends to ensure it was always the best option for under $500. In the early 2010’s the Debut Carbon was introduced, it stunned the high-end audio world by incorporating exotic materials such as carbon fiber, thermoplastic elastomer, and a cartridge with $100 retail value. The Debut Carbon exploded in the US market where the resurgence of vinyl was really born. Today, vinyl playback has once again become the center of music lovers’ systems.
Building a great high-end turntable requires design expertise. Building a great & affordable turntable requires not only expertise, but also skilled engineering, flawless manufacturing, advanced material sciences, and relentless passion. Creating a worthy successor to the legendary Debut Carbon required rethinking and reevaluating every component and each design choice. The new Debut Carbon EVO represents the epitome of Pro-Ject’s philosophy: high performance, clean aesthetics, and superb value. The elegant, simple aesthetic is unmarred by gimmicky lights, sliders, and buttons. It is a pure, high-performance turntable. Should requirements call for a phono preamp, Bluetooth or digital connectivity, USB interface, etc., Pro-ject offers a wide range of external electronics, optimized for any application.
The heavy, solid MDF plinth is painstakingly layered with eight coats of paint, available in finishes that look and feel luxurious. Debut Carbon EVO is crafted in traditional high-gloss black, white and red as well as in beautiful satin finishes including new soft pastel colors and a real walnut veneer. The engineering and manufacturing are the culmination of decades of know-how, investment, and passion. Pro-Ject builds their products for the love of music, knowing that they might be handed down to future generations along with lovingly curated record collections. They have taken their most beloved turntable design and improved nearly every aspect of it. The result is an incredibly refined product with a price/performance ratio that sets a new standard.
