Pro-Ject Carbon Phono USB
The new Debut Carbon Phono USB (DC) has been designed to set new standards in this category for the coming decade – perfectly timed as analogue today is again a respected source, while the demand for good turntables is growing again!
The most obvious improvement is the inclusion of a CARBON TUBE for the tonearm, which increases stiffness and decreases unwanted resonance. This material normally is extensively used in high-end tonearms, but – because of cost reasons – was never used in products at lower price levels. Together with other improvements like an increase in platter size and weight to realize even smoother rotation, the overall sound quality is greatly improved. The approved belt drive design offers low noise AC motor with effective motor decoupling (utilizing TPE-damping) and ultra precision frequency DC-driven AC generator (like Speed Box) for ultimate speed stability without unwanted vibration.
Because Debut Carbon Phono USB (DC) comes with the pre-mounted cartridge and build-in phono preamplifier with USB output, connection to both line-level input of your hi-fi system and recording of vinyl to PC/Mac easily can be done simultaneously!
