You can't beat performance at this price

Brian, Crutchfield
2 September 2014
  • Summary: Upgraded from a low end Sony player and was looking for something that would bring out the best sound from my growing vinyl collection without breaking the bank. The Debut Carbon is exactly what I was looking for. You could easily pay a grand or two more and still not find better sound. Records that had excessive pop and hiss on my old player sound way better/cleaner.
  • Pros: Great sound Awesome build quality Great price
  • Cons: A little extra work to switch between 33 1/3 and 45rpm (but it's a minor quibble)

Solid performer

  • Summary: Just getting back into vinyl and very impressed with the quality of a $400 turntable. I replaced a 10 year old Denon, that sounded OK, but in side by side comparisons the Pro-ject blew it away. I am very impressed with the quality of the so-called entry level turntable.
  • Pros: Good sound, nice looking and appears quality built. The cartridge is such an improvement over my last turntable it is like night and day.
  • Cons: Small amount of hum from the motor, but not noticeable when the music starts.

Great sound and price

  • Summary: The turntable sounds and looks great. Also with the Ortofon 2m included, it's a pretty good deal. I only have two minor gripes. First, it shipped with a bent stylus on the cartridge, but they did send me a free replacement. Second, changing speeds from 33 to 45 is annoying. You have to remove the platter and move the belt on the pulley. This can be bothersome if you are going back and forth between lp's and singles, like I often do.
  • Pros: Great Sound, great looks, and great price.
  • Cons: Difficulty of speed adjustment.

Great turntable

  • Summary: Took me longer then most to set up but my own stupid mistakes. But with this turntable is the best sound I heard out of my 20 yr old Sony ES system. I had a Sony PSLX250H turntable hook up for my albums which sounded good. But after playing this Pro-Ject Debut Carbon all I Can say is WOW.
  • Pros: everything about this table is great.
  • Cons: none

  • Summary: I bought this turntable to replace an old JVC unit. This turntable is leaps and bounds better than the old JVC unit.
  • Pros: Sound is fantastic, easy to set up, looks cool
  • Cons: There is a hum from the motor, but once the record starts to play, the hum becomes inaudible.

Pro ject debut carbon

Vintageandvinyl, Crutchfield
31 March 2014
  • Summary: Upgraded from a cheap USB model to the project. What a difference. Normal vinyl hiss is pushed far into the background. The sound from this table is full, with deep lows and crisp highs. The new model has better motor isolation than the previous, and hum is non evident. Sounds amazing with my denon pre amp and power amp through the polk monitor 70s. Loving every minute.
  • Pros: Great stock cartridge , great sound
  • Cons: Stock cables are cheap, and fit extremely loose.

  • Summary: I consider myself an amatuer when it comes to vinyl. I wanted a good entry level player and this has been excellent. The instructions were extremely easy and set-up was a breeze. Great product and I am extremely happy thus far.
