Overview

Our take on the Audioengine A5+/Pro-Ject DC Esprit/Phono Box Bundle

A turntable is a very visible part of your home's decor — you want it to sound good, certainly, but all the better if it looks good, too. So we've packaged Pro-Ject's stellar Debut Carbon Esprit SB turntable (in white) with their compact Phono Box DC phono preamplifier and a pair of white Audioengine A5+ powered stereo speakers. It's a great-sounding system without a bulky amplifier, and one that makes a cool visual statement.

A turntable made for serious vinyl fans

When you listen to your favorite records, you want to hear exactly what the musicians intended. The Pro-Ject Debut Carbon Esprit SB turntable was built to eliminate any mechanical or electronic noise that might impinge upon your ideal listening experience. 

A one-piece carbon fiber tonearm reduces unwanted resonance that colors sound. The turntable's sturdy MDF chassis rests on shock-absorbing rubber feet that provide a solid, low-resonance foundation. The belt drive system and TPE (ThermoPlastic Elastomer) motor mount isolate the motor's vibration from the chassis to prevent noise from being transferred to the cartridge.

The Esprit SB also features a built-in Pro-Ject Speed Box with a top-mounted electronic switch that lets you easily change speeds from 33-1/3 to 45 rpm with the push of a button. A heavy 12" precision-machined acrylic platter lowers the turntable's noise floor for clearer, more dynamic sound.

Powerful bookshelf speakers

Some of our turntable bundles feature smaller desktop speakers, but this system really calls for the added power you get from the bookshelf-sized Audioengine A5+. This pair's silk tweeters deliver smooth, open highs, and 5" Kevlar woofers provide tight, punchy mids and bass. The left-hand speaker contains two 50-watt amplifiers that drive the speakers perfectly, so you hear all of the important sonic details etched onto your favorite platters. The solidly built MDF cabinets sport an eye-catching high-gloss white finish.
