  • Carbon Fiber Tonearm: The 8.6-inch (218.5 mm) carbon fiber tonearm is lightweight yet robust, ensuring effective vibration absorption and minimal resonance for high-fidelity audio reproduction.
  • Ortofon 2M Red Cartridge: The turntable is equipped with a pre-mounted and pre-adjusted Ortofon 2M Red cartridge, known for its elliptical stylus that tracks grooves accurately, offering a wide frequency response and excellent channel separation.
  • Speed Control: An electronic speed selector located under the chassis allows for easy switching between 33 and 45 RPM, ensuring precise playback without the need to manually change the belt position.
  • Adjustable Feet: The turntable’s three height-adjustable feet provide a stable and perfectly level setup on any surface.


For audiophiles seeking a high-quality, manually operated turntable that blends classic design with modern engineering, the Pro-Ject Debut Carbon Evo offers exceptional value and performance.
