Bring your record collection into the digital age!
The task of transforming your treasured LPs into audiophile-quality digital files requires a great-sounding turntable. That’s why the folks at Pro-Ject added a high-fidelity phono preamp with a built-in analog-to-digital converter and USB output to their acclaimed Debut Carbon (DC). This potent playback combination makes it a breeze to transfer music to your computer for easy archiving. Save your tunes as MP3, WAV, or other music files that you can store on your computer or download to your portable player. The built-in preamp means you can also connect the Debut Carbon Phono USB (DC) directly to almost any audio system.

What’s new with the Carbon Phono USB (DC)?
The first thing Pro-Ject did was to give the Debut Carbon Phono USB (DC) a new power supply with a precision built-in frequency generator (like their Speed Box), increasing the turntable’s speed stability while decreasing unwanted motor vibration. This extra degree of accuracy and smoothness gives you a more focused stereo image, tighter bass, and greater detail than before. Then, Pro-Ject added new TPE (ThermoPlastic Elastomer) dampers to the motor mounts to better decouple and isolate it from the turntable’s chassis, reducing motor noise and rumble to a bare minimum. The result is a turntable that delivers sonic performance rarely found on models in its price range.

Crafted for serious sound!
You’ve probably seen cheap, plastic turntables equipped with USB, but the Debut Carbon Phono USB (DC) is in a completely different league. Its sturdy MDF chassis rests on shock absorbing rubber feet that provide a solid, low-resonance foundation. Its heavy steel platter spins on a precision axle and bearing for excellent speed stability and smooth, silent rotation. A decoupled motor mount and belt drive system isolates the motor’s vibration from the chassis to prevent noise from being transferred to the cartridge. An external AC power supply helps reduce the chance of hum. Finally, the table’s one-piece carbon fiber tonearm includes a silicone-damped lift for gently raising and lowering the arm, which protects both the stylus and your records.

Enjoy the rich sound of vinyl without the hassle!
Pro-Ject knows that turntable setup can be a challenge for the novice. That’s why the Debut Carbon Phono USB (DC) comes out of the box virtually ready to play. Its pre-matched, factory-mounted phono cartridge and tonearm take the guesswork out of installation, so you can enjoy optimized sound quality with minimal effort. A few minutes to dial in key settings like tracking force, anti-skating, and platter speed are all that’s needed to experience the best sound you’ve ever heard from your record collection.
