Ingenious entry to the world of luxurious styling for audiophiles
RPM 3 Carbon utilises evolutionary enhancements to improve the performance of RPM series: A low resonance chassis holds an inverted platter bearing with ceramic ball for further reduced rumble. An outboard 15V AC motor is smoothly driven using an ultra precision AC generator with DC power supply for further enhanced speed stability.
A 10“ S-shaped tonearm tube is made from carbon fibre, aluminium and resin. Using a complex 3-step process with heat treatment and 100bar pressure, arm tube rigidity is strengthened, internal damping is maximized and resonances are reduced to a minimum. This makes the tonearm also suitable for MC cartridges. Additional features are a magnetic antiskating mechanism and a TPE-damped counterweight. All ingredients add up to a miracle in sound for the price and ultra-stylish look!

Launched in 2016 in conjunction with Pro-ject Audio’s 25th anniversary, The Classic Sub-Chassis Turntable is inspired by famous turntables of the 50’s and 60’s (like the legendary Lenco L75, Thorens & Linn). The traditional wood frame sub-chassis is marvelous. It’s a timeless classic.
Thanks to the modern damping materials TPE (Thermo Plastic Elastomers) below the main platter, it very effectively isolates the platter and tonearm from the resonances of the motor and main plinth. It utilised Japanese ball bearing below the tonearm for extra smooth movement.

The first Debut turntable, introduced in the late 1990s, was a revolution for the hi-fi industry. For the first time after the arrival of Compact Disc and the assumed demise of vinyl records, an analogue product re-emerged in the “mass market” – something all music lovers could afford.
The new DEBUT Carbon DC was 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 (utilising TPE-damping) and ultra precision frequency DC-driven AC generator (like Speed Box) for ultimate speed stability without unwanted vibration.
The DEBUT CARBON DC is available in high-gloss black (Piano Black) or shiny red, green, blue, yellow, silver or white as no-added-cost option. It is also available in walnut finish with additional cost.

Special decoupling feet make sure that the turntable is safely standing on its ground without worrying about vibrations.
