Pro-Ject Improves & Refines Its Most-Popular Audiophile-Friendly Turntable

We’ve seen a lot of modern turntables, and with more companies emerging from the woodwork every single day, it’s becoming quite clear that the market for such audio-inclined equipment is alive and well. The most recent offering to capture our interest is Pro-Ject’s time-tested “Debut” turntable line, which was conceptualized to bring affordable quality to entry- and mid-level listeners. Now, they’ve decided to amplify the already-successful platform with the release of the sleek Carbon Evo model.

While the Debut Carbon Evo doesn’t differ from the shape, size, and form of the original Carbon, it brings a suite of interesting improvements to the table for those who want to take their in-home audio system to the next level. Boasting enhanced motor noise control, built-in speed refinements, and an up-to-date damping system, the minimalist tray pairs modern technologies with a retro silhouette, thanks to its 8.6-inch carbon tonearm, Ortofon 2M Red cartridge, and electronically-controlled belt drive. To improve its audio reproduction capabilities, the brand’s engineers have found a way to suspend the motor, actively “removing” it from the complicated stylus/cartridge equation. This, paired with the device’s aluminum/elastomer base and enhanced elastomer ring, allows for improved quality and minimal outside interference. Head to Pro-Ject’s website to pick up one of your own for $575.
