Overview

Our take on the Pro-Ject Acryl-it

Give your Pro-Ject turntable even better sound and looks

Here's some easy upgrade advice for all you Pro-Ject Debut III, Debut Carbon, or 1-Xpression Carbon turntable owners — simply swap out your 'table's stock metal platter with the Acryl-it, and savor the difference. This precision-machined acrylic platter reduces distracting resonance and lowers your turntable's noise floor for clearer, more dynamic sound. You'll hear tighter, punchier bass, greater midrange detail, and better spatial definition from your treasured vinyl collection. Plus with no need for a felt mat to cover it up, adding the Acryl-it will make your turntable look every bit as good as it sounds.

Product Highlights:

  • acrylic platter upgrade for select Pro-Ject turntables, including Debut III, Debut III USB, Debut Carbon, and 1-Xpression Carbon
  • reduces resonance and noise floor compared to stock steel platter
  • non-magnetic acrylic material allows use of moving-coil cartridges
  • no mat required, albums are placed directly on platter surface
  • attractive sandblasted finish
  • warranty: 60 days
  • Our 60-day money-back guarantee

What's in the Box:

  • Acrylic turntable platter

l live in the northeast & during the winter i experience lots of static .....the acrylic-it platter killed it !!! When I dropped the needle on the lead in groove I hear nothing but silence.... I was amazed .

Features

Compatibility: This Pro-Ject Acrylic platter replaces the metal platter of your Pro-Ject Debut or Xpression turntable. Unlike metal platters, where you will need to place a felt mat between your record and the platter to dampen metal resonance, you can put your record directly on the acrylic platter's surface, with nothing in between. The Acrylic platter will improve overall performance significantly.

Customer Q&A

Crutchfield asked  
Why did you buy this?

Unfortunately our speakers are closer to our turntable than we would like and a couple of evenings ago we noticed some resonance issues. We're hoping this acrylic platter will somewhat reduce that. Granted, the volume was a bit higher than it should have been given the close proximity, but we feel this might help a bit. We don't expect it to perform miracles, but it will also look better than the black metal platter with the cork mat. [ Samanthia  Mar 05, 2018 ]

Upgrade [ michael  Nov 07, 2017 ]
Because I am susceptible to impulse purchases due to egotism in thinking I am an audiophile and I will somehow notice the difference. [ clayton  Aug 18, 2017 ]
Hoping it will improve sound quality, especially adding more bass. [ David  Feb 24, 2017 ]
Upgrade turntable [ Philip  Oct 30, 2016 ]
Forum contributors using the same Pro-Ject Debut Carbon(DC) as myself report positive results. In retrospect I should have purchased the Pro-Ject Debut Carbon Esprit SB (DC) as it includes the Acryl-it Platter and the Speed S box (which I have now) at an overall $30.00 lower price. In my case I tried for economy despite my addiction to "tweaking" my Audio gear. I could have benefited from better sales qualification (and hindsight!) [ Garry  Oct 06, 2016 ]
I was skeptical, but the good reviews and advice from the adviser compelled me to take the plunge. [ Kyle  May 02, 2016 ]
My vinyl suffer from static overload. This platter is one phase of the solution. It has made a significant difference. Thank you Crutchfield! [ Emil  Mar 26, 2016 ]
Good reviews, don't want to have to make new digital backups because of a better sounding turntable later. [ Michael C.  Jan 20, 2016 ]

Yes. This is a recommended accessory for the Pro-Ject Xpression III. You'll find it listed under the "Accessories" tab on the turntable's main webpage: http://www.crutchfield.com/p_252XPRSSN3/item.html I hope that helps. My Bio: https://www.crutchfield.com/bio/Ryan [ Ryan  Nov 22, 2017 ]  Staff
Thanks for your question. The manufacturer does not list the exact weight of the platter. The item as shipped is 2.56 pounds. Hope this helps. [ Kenny  Sep 20, 2017 ]  Staff
Looking at the mmf manual I believe it will as the project carbon system looks very similar. [ David  Jan 06, 2017 ]
The Pro-Ject and the Music Hall platters are very similar. Neither manufacture indicates interchangeability. Your best selection would be with Music Hall's Acri-Plat. Their website lists it as a direct fit for your TT. While I always check with Crutcfield first, they do not carry this item. You can get it at Amazon, however. Search for: Music Hall Acri-Plat Acrylic Platter in the Home Audio & Theater Products section. Best of luck! G.A.C. [ Garry  Jan 05, 2017 ]
I got this for my Project Debut Carbon. But according to my google search, people are using it for Music Hall MMF 2.2. [ Cheol Ho  Jan 05, 2017 ]
I don't see why not they are both made in the same factory they use the same tone arm so I don't see why the pro ject acrylic-it wouldn't work on the music hall mmf 2.2 [ bc2500  Jan 05, 2017 ]
I don't see why not but to be on safe side check with pro ject dealer or get their customer service number it's better to be safe than sorry Bob [ bc2500  Jul 23, 2016 ]
Yes. You should be able to just lift the metal platter straight off your turntable and replace it with the acrylic platter. [ Larry  Jul 23, 2016 ]
You shouldn't have to remove the pin at all. Just lift off the metal platter, and replace it with the acrylic. It slides right over the pin. [ Suzanne  Nov 08, 2014 ]
Thanks for the replies. When I say pin I mean the little pin at the center of the platter that goes into the hole in a record. It seems to be pretty firmly set in the stock platter when I take it off the turntable. I guess I just need to push harder to get it out? [ Paul  Nov 07, 2014 ]
What pin? Are you talking about the spindle? There is nothing holding the platter down, you just pick it straight up to remove. Also, if you buy this platter, buy a record clamp. [ parek  Nov 07, 2014 ]
You shouldn't need to remove the pin from the stock platter. The pin is attached to a spindle under the platter. The platter replacement takes all of 2 seconds and doesn't require removal of anything but the old platter. Also, it works great. [ DAYLIN  Nov 07, 2014 ]
The pin is attached to the turntable and it stays attached. You just have to remove the stock metal platter and slide the new Acryl-it platter over the pin. [ Steve  Nov 07, 2014 ]
I am not sure what ProJect turntable you have that would require you to remove the pin to change the platter. The original platter simply lifts straight up an off, and replaced by the acrylic platter, which by the way is way awesome looking. [ Gary  Nov 07, 2014 ]
The platter should just lift straight up and off the pin and the pin stays put. as this is how you change the speed of the TT, unless your model is different! [ DARRYL  Nov 07, 2014 ]
Not sure what pin you're talking about. I have the Debut Carbon and all you have to do is lift off the steel platter and replace with the acrylic platter. It's super easy. No pin removal involved. [ STEPHEN  Nov 07, 2014 ]
