Pro-Ject Debut III SB

Get into vinyl with this elegant, high-value turntable

This nice-looking turntable provides an easy and affordable intro into the great-sounding world of vinyl. It features a solid, handsomely finished MDF plinth, vibration-dampening motor suspension, and a high-mass steel platter over an anti-resonant sub-platter. It's also got a one-piece aluminum tonearm fitted with a factory-installed Ortofon OM 5E moving magnet cartridge. It will sound great once you set it up out of the box. And you can upgrade the cartridge and/or platter down the line if you want to get even better sound.

Flexible operation

The Debut III SB's switchable built-in phono preamp lets you connect to pretty much any sound system setup. You can use the built-in phono preamp and plug directly in to a pair of powered stereo speakers or a line-level input on your amp. Or, switch it off and connect to your own separate phono stage or the phono input on a stereo receiver or integrated amp.

The bottom-mounted speed switch lets spin records at 33-1/3 or 45 rpm. If you want to listen to some cool old 78s records, you'll need to swap to the included 78 rpm belt and pick up a compatible stylus (sold separately).
