The Debut Carbon Esprit SB turntable takes the hugely successful, multi-award winning Debut Carbon design and adds even more to the already impressive package. On top of the impressive feature set of the standard Debut Carbon DC, including the stunning carbon fibre tonearm and Ortofon 2M Red cartridge combination; the Esprit SB version also benefits from an intuitive speed controller for effortless changing between 33 and 45rpm. The Debut Carbon Esprit SB can also spin at 78 RPM by manually switching the drive belt to the larger pulley rung (underneath the platter) and setting the speed changer to '45/78'.
(Please Note: 78 RPM records require a special stylus - we recommend the Ortofon 2M 78 Stylus for this turntable).
As well as being convenient, the speed control system also allows for smoother motor operation - further reducing unwanted resonances along with Pro-Ject's specially-developed motor isolation system. The new motor isolation system utilises Pro-Ject's preferred Thermo-Plastic Elastomer (TPE) compound to achieve dramatically reduced resonance transference from the high-quality 9V motor.
Another significant sonic benefit for the Debut Carbon Esprit SB is found in the included platter upgrade. Supplied with a 12" Acryl-IT platter, acrylic is a an excellent playback platform for vinyl, as it offers almost no resonance in the audible frequency range and negates the need for a slipmat, which can sometimes cause problems with slip and/or static.
The Debut Carbon Esprit SB takes an established hi-fi design and adds some impressive upgrades to achieve an even more complete, more high-end turntable system.
