Debut Carbon EVO
Time for Evolution. We have taken our most popular
turntable design and improved every aspect of it.
The result is an incredibly refined product.
Refined in every aspect.
Improved motor suspension
The Debut Carbon EVO features our new designed motor suspension. We have improved the old design to consistently reduce the vibrations better than before.
Damped & height adjustable
The new Debut Carbon Evo stands on three height adjustable damped aluminium feet to guarantee the perfect stand.
1,7 kg Platter
Heavy steel and TPE damped
We added a TPE (thermoplastic elastomer) ring on the inside of the platter. The result is an even quieter and noiseless operation with less wow and flutter.
High precision motor control
The rocker switch on the bottom of the turntable allows you to change speeds with the push of only a single button.
Damped from the inside
Our previous metal platter was already heavier than anybody else‘s on the market, but metal platters inherently have a disadvantage: resonance.
Our TPE (thermoplastic elastomer) technology now helps to damp the resonance completely and also increases the weight to 1,7 kg. Because the TPE is mounted to the inside of the platter‘s rim, the moving energy will also create a flywheel effect. The result is an even quieter and noiseless operation with less wow and flutter.
Clean look & new colours
You wont find any button, switch or printing on the plinth to ensure the luxurious aesthetics. The speed control switch has been moved to the bottom of the plinth, to keep the clean look the Debut is known for.
The Debut Carbon EVO is not only timeless by offering traditional high-gloss black, white and red finishes or our fabled real-wood walnut veneer. Completely new, unique and trend-setting are the beautifully realized satin signature finishes in 5 different variations.
From the record to your amplifier.
Ortofon 2M Red
2M Red is an all-purpose cartridge that delivers open, dynamic sound with a slight touch of warmth. (*US Version comes with Sumiko Rainier)
8,6 inch carbon
The new Debut Carbon EVO features the proven 8,6‘‘ one piece Carbon tonearm design. The super stiff, but lightweight tonearm delivers an insane sound quality with a convincing sound stage.
Gold plated sockets
You can always change your RCA output cable and upgrade it with your preferred one. The gold plated connectors will always provide the best connection.
Semi-balanced RCA cable
To guarantee a perfect connection to your amp you will find a high-quality phono RCA cable in the box. Our Connect it E is a semi-balanced, low-capacitance cable, with superior shielding.

… impressive bass response. The Debut has improved considerably in this regard over the years and the Carbon EVO is the best manifestation yet.
… this is some of the best analogue bass you can currently get your hands on for under £500 and it puts the Pro-Ject above many equivalently priced rivals.
… it involves and demands your attention in a way that is fairly unusual for such a relatively affordable design.
… a turntable that is staggeringly competent …
… provides a performance that is easy equal of any remotely price equivalent rival…
Right up there at the top
… there was a sense of perfect balance to the sound.
What I loved straight away however was the detail… and the separation.
… we‘re talking high-quality analog here.
Superb straight away – and immediately musically engaging.
… again the Debut showed it could deliver this track beautifully in true and best analogue fashion.
Pro-Ject‘s Debut Carbon EVO turntable is a fine starter package, with assured performance. By this I mean no weak spots…
Everything about it says it has reached maturity
… gorgeous finish of its new satin colourways.
… room is bathed in its rich, full bodied tone.
… a magnificently plush midrange…
… so much warmth and … plenty of weight in the bass.
It is also partnered with a great deal of detail and texture.
