Comments of Note:
"With Pro-Ject's usual clear and sensible instructions, and no cartridge fitting to worry about, even complete newcomers should find this turntable easy to install and set up. It is nice to use, too..."
"With 'Fast Car' [from Tracy Chapman, 1988, Elektra 960 774-1], again the Pro-Ject's strength was in its projection of the vocal. The singer was intelligible, emotive and with a strong sense of presence, yet still with a fair rendition of the studio-created 'air' around her."
"I felt that the Debut Carbon was quite appealingly communicative and made for an absorbing listen."
"With its full-size platter and smart-looking arm, the Debut in Carbon form does offer an uplift in performance in return for a modest price increase, and certainly gets quite striking results from the gutsy-sounding Ortofon 2m Red cartridge."
