  • 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 Esprit SB has been designed to set new standards in this category for the coming decade – perfectly timed, as analogue is once again becoming the most respected source.
  • The biggest improvement is the inclusion of a carbon tube for the tonearm, which increases stiffness and decreases unwanted resonance.
  • This material 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 for 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 an ultra precision frequency DC-driven AC generator for greater speed stability without unwanted vibration.
  • The full-width acrylic platter on the Esprit model is heavier than other materials, ensuring less resonances and a stunning design.
