An increase in platter size and weight to realize even smoother rotation.

Debut Carbon DC Model with Ortofon OM10 Cartridge
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
The Pro-ject Debut Carbon DC makes a great mid-entry level turntable for those wanting to enjoying music on vinyl. If you get the 15v model, the Speed-Box by Pro-Ject WILL NOT WORK. I have had my Pro-Ject for two months, and could not be more please. I have since upgraded to a Otofon 2M Red cartridge, which perform drastically better than the cartridge supplied. I have also added the acryl-it table, and a decent TT clamp. The Pro-Ject DC is great out of the box and set-up is a snap. Use the table as is for about a month, and then upgrade the cartridge if your table didn't come with one already, you will be amazed with the difference. I have been very pleased with my purchase, and the performance of this TT is outstanding.
This is a fabulous turntable. Easy to set up and wonderful to play. I recommend it for those who understand what a manual turntable is. Otherwise they will most likely be happier with an automatic turntable with a USB output and bluetooth streaming. This is NOT that kind of turntable. The turntable looks gorgeous. I am enjoying old LPs from my collection. I love the sound of analog played via a great turntable and good speakers.
The Pro-Ject Debut Carbon DC is the audiophile quality turntable to buy if you want to spend less than $1000. I would consider this table a solid mid grade table compared to the typical consumer grade automatic tables ($200-$1200) which is to say it's comparable to a $1000 automatic table that is precisely setup. The setup is a breeze on this turntable with the most difficult portion being setting the tracking force for the supplied cartridge as the cartridge alignment is done at the factory for you! I recommend purchasing a stylus force scale like this Yosoo LP Digital Turntable Stylus Force Scale Gauge led. The manual nature of belt switches for speed do not detract from the use of this turntable. Setup is quick and easy, make sure that your plinth(turntable base) is level before setting your tracking and stylus force. If you enjoy...
