      Stylish red colored classic turntable with carbon tonearm.

      The first Debut turntable, introduced in the late 1990s, was a revolution for the hi-fi industry. For the first time after the arrival of Compact Disc and the assumed demise of vinyl records, an analogue product re-emerged in the “mass market” – something all music lovers could afford.

      The DEBUT Carbon has been designed to set new standards in this category for the coming decade – perfectly timed as analogue today is again a respected source, while the demand for good turntables is growing again.

      The most obvious improvement is the inclusion of a CARBON TUBE for the tonearm, which increases stiffness and decreases unwanted resonance. This material normally is extensively used in high-end tonearms, but – because of cost reasons – was never used in products at lower price levels. Together with other improvements like an increase in platter size and weight to realize even smoother rotation and new design in motor suspension, the overall sound quality is greatly improved.

      Features
      • 8.6” Carbon tonearm
      • Increased platter size with more weight
      • Precision belt drive with synchronous motor
      • New sorbothane motor suspension
      • Felt mat
      • Magnetic cartridge options from Ortofon

      Dust those records off your shelf, and order the Duet 2M-R today.

          Great unit for the price, If you are just getting into vinyl or you don't have quality amp / speakers you are not going to tell the difference between this and a lesser unit. However if you are looking for an audiophile quality starter TT this is the one to buy

              Turntable sounds amazing - nice look as well in the red. Not the best packaging however, turntable arrived with slight damage on the rear of the table - nothing that effects the sound or performance and not visible when setup, but somewhat annoying (I'm really the only who would see the marks).

                  amazing sounding out of the box. I've gone through 4 tables in the last 5 years looking (and listening) for what I want and this is it. A superior upgrade over their previous Debut iii model.

                    Great product; some assembly required so takes some time and care. Amazing sound on first playback and beautiful-looking unit. One annoying element is that the platter needs to be removed to switch from 33RPM to 45RPM, but that aside it's a great player with better sound than any player I've had before.

                              The Pro-ject Debut Carbon has the most bang for your buck then any other turntable I've seen on the market. I couldn't believe my ears when I heard how much of a difference just the turn table made in my whole set up. Please, do yourself a favor and pick this up as soon as you can if you are looking to upgrade, you wont be disappointed!

                                Had to return the first Debut Carbon I received due to extreme motor hum that translated through my amplifier. You could hear the motor from across the room and there was major vibration through the plinth. The box did come with a quarter size hole in it, so it could have been damaged during transportation.
                                Musicians Friend was extremely helpful in returning the unit for a replacement.
                                Replacement unit was a big improvement, but still with a very slight motor hum only heard at the beginning and end of records when volume is up.
                                Google debut carbon motor hum and you will find this seems to be a consistent problem.
