Resonance-Reducing Construction: The attractive resonance-reducing MDF
plinth supports a heavier 300mm diameter metal platter for smoother rotation and
lower wow and flutter. Additionally, a felt record mat is employed for superior
record support and coupling. The platter and plinth assembly sits upon
four-point "O"-ring feet designed for energy absorption and the plinth-mounted
motor is isolated by a new Sorbothane suspension keeping unwanted noise and
vibration to a bare minimum. The motor is even decoupled from the plinth to
reduce vibration transmission.
Note: The turntable should be positioned on a
low-resonance surface such as wood or multiple layer ply-board to avoid
structural vibrations disturbing replay.
High-Fidelity Sound: The 8.6" single-piece tube carbon fiber
tone-arm that increases stiffness while decreasing unwanted resonances resulting
in a higher fidelity presentation of your vinyl recordings. Fitted to the carbon
fiber arm is a top-quality cartridge, the OM10 moving magnet (MM) phono cartridge by Ortofon.
This arm/cartridge combination is capable of exceptional tracking and recovery
of the musical nuance found within the records grooves.
Belt Driven: The Pro-Ject Debut-Carbon Phono USB features a quiet running
AC motor with a two-step pulley which drives the hub and platter via a
flat-ground belt. The Debut-Carbon Phono USB supports 33-1/3 and 45 rpm speeds.
Integrated Phono-MM Preamp w/ USB Output: Because the Debut Carbon Phono USB includes a built-in phono preamplifier with USB
output, connection to both line-level input of your hifi system and USB port on
your computer can
be done simultaneously.
- RCA Output Jacks: Plinth mounted RCA output jacks allow
for the use of higher quality interconnects for even better sonic
performance. The built-in phono equalizer preamp allows you to connect the
turntable to an integrated amp or receiver that does not have a dedicated
phono input. You cannot disable the built-in phono preamp.
- USB Phono Stage: The Pro-Ject Debut-Carbon Phono USB
turntable allows you to transfer treasured vinyl records to any digital file
format on your computer (software not included) with audiophile sound quality
via its moving magnet phono preamplifier, A/D converter and USB (type-B) output
(USB cable included). Compatible with Windows, Mac, and Linux operating
systems. Pro-Ject recommends Audacity, a free sound recording and editing
program available at
Dust Cover: The Pro-Ject Debut-Carbon Phono USB comes supplied with a
dust cover to prevent dust build-up on the turntable.

household current using the supplied external AC power adapter.
