Pre-fitted with the Ortofon 2M Red
The 2M Series of cartridges is designed for precise and accurate retrieval of the information in the record groove. Our philosophy is to play the record sound as accurate as possible, without colouring the sound. The Ortofon 2M Red is the perfect fit for the Pro-Ject Debut Carbon Esprit SB.
More than just an eye-catching aesthetic feature, the translucent acrylic platter of the Pro-Ject Debut Carbon Esprit SB is a perfect companion to vinyl. The acrylic platter dampens the effects of unwanted vibrations and helps ensure smooth, accurate speed.
Speed Control for all records
In-built Speed Control allows you to play all formats of records on the Pro-Ject Debut Carbon Esprit SB. The common 33⅓ & 45 RPM speeds are toggled with an effortless click of the button.
For rare 78 RPM Shellac records it’s a simple belt change (included in the box) and the addition of an Ortofon 2M 78 stylus upgrade.
What's in the box?
After doing fairly extensive research on new turntables in the market, I finally decided to purchase the Pro-Ject Debut Carbon Esprit SB as it has the best features at its price point. The turntable arrived 2 days after placing the order, was easy to set up, and sounds simply amazing out of the box when paired with a Pro-Ject Tube Box S2 phono stage. Also, excellent customer service from Pro-Ject Australia's Audio Teams who proactively reached out after the purchase and delivery to check and make sure I had everything I needed and everything was OK.
