Hi-Fi Choice - EDITOR'S CHOICE

Dubbed the 'most audiophile' Debut turntable yet, this deck/arm/cartridge solution takes over from last year's popular Debut Carbon with a host of new useful refinements.

...the most staggering element of the Debut Pro is the solidity and extension of the bass.

...ultra-expressive lower registers...the Debut Pro is a more-than-competent deliverer of richness in all areas...speed and attack are as much about the experience as the fluidity...the Pro does indeed convey body and fatigue-free listening without any blatant loss of detail.

...exhibits vocal textures so convincingly. The warmth in the voice...vivid and apparent.

...the Debut PRO handles with aplomb...the sound is ethereal yet palpable.

Spinning over 30 LPs on the Debut PRO, we leave it convinced that it begs to be heard by the sort of audiophile in-waiting... it joins the best of sub-£1,000 front-end combinations. 'Entry Level' has a new champion.

LIKE: Price; ease of use; simple setup; expansive sound; future upgrade options

WE SAY: Hard to better at entry level.

Untouchable for the money

Theres no shortage of choice upto £1k on the new TT market. I inherited a lovely Pioneer PL51 direct drive 10yrs ago and have lots of experience with SL1200 Technics which have a cultish following. I truly think what Project are achieving at this price point is amazing.... in house CNC machined componenets, adjustable carbon/alu arm, excellent main platter and plinth isolation solutions.... these are the things that REALLY matter and theres zero frills and nonesence here to detract from the qualities it posseses. The genuinely useful upgradability is a massive draw too. Even with the stock Orto Red it sounds supremely musical and i wonder why im considering spending more but thats the addictive hifi hobby for you. Thanks as ever to Gary and Marion!

EISA Best Value Turntable 2021-2022

This very refined version of Pro-Ject's entry-level turntable comes with a raft of improvements.

Described as 'the ultimate expression of the Debut Concept', it sounds assured and involving - it's an absolute knock-out, and a new champion for the entry level.

Hi-Fi News OUTSTANDING PRODUCT

In fighting form, the most staggering element of the Debut PRO to my ears was the solidity and extension of the bass. This extracted all the weight of the Benson recording, ultra-expressive lower registers...the Debut PRO was a more-than-competent deliverer of richness in all areas.

...the PRO conveys body and fatigue-free listening without any blatant loss of detail.

...exhibited vocal textures so convincing...The warmth in the voice...vivid and apparent.

...the Pick it PRO extracted each of the three voices in their own sonic turf, blending them with such authority that I had to dig out my copy on open-reel tape for comparison purposes.

...the sound was ethereal yet palpable.

Having spun over 30 LPs on the Debut PRO, I leave it convinced that it begs to be heard by the sort of audiophile-in-waiting...it joins the best of sub-£1000 front-end combinations. 'Entry level' has a new champion.

...the PRO is the ultimate expression of the Debut concept...Simply stated, the Debut PRO is a knock-out.

    Product Information

    After the Debut Carbon EVO revolutionised the Debut series in 2020, the Debut PRO raises the bar even higher. Pro-ject designed not only a new turntable but also a completely new cartridge. Now, for the 30th anniversary, Pro-Ject are again going back to Pro-Ject's roots.

    Features

    A MILESTONE FOR THE NEXT DECADES
    The Debut PRO brings an absolutely new design to Pro-Ject turntables. The audiophile turntable is convincing in all respects – not only visually, but more importantly also in terms of sound.

    The precision CNC milled parts are optically perfectly coordinated and lead the Debut PRO to its modern simple, elegant and unprecedented design. The nickel finish of all these aluminium components result in a hard, resistant surface. This process enables Pro-Ject to produce very high-quality and sustainable components and avoid plastics and similar materials that continue to age over time and would more importantly also degrade sound quality.

    The tonearm bearing is a completely new design. Precision CNC'd out of a single block of aluminium, you can see all the production stages above. The last step is putting a nickel finish on it. This will increase the rigidity of the bearing, ensuring free and fluid movement of the tonearm and precise tracking without material degration in looks or function.

    Deeply driven
    The electronically regulated synchronous motor drives the platter and guarantees the most accurate and stable speeds. Change between them easily with the toggle switch. With the supplied round belt for 78 rpm you can also listen to your shellac records.

    A new platter – a deeper dish
    The new Debut PRO platter is a first on any Pro-Ject turntable. It features a notch for the record label and together with Pro-Ject's Record Puck PRO (available separately) the puck's weight will press it tightly into the platter. The die-cast aluminium platter is reworked and precision balanced in an extra step to obtain an evenly spinning platter. It is anti-magnetic, allowing MC cartridges to work properly. Delve deep into the vast upgrade path the Debut PRO has to offer!

    The anti-magnetic heavy aluminium platter has a ring made of TPE (thermoplastic elastomer) on the inside that helps to dampen all resonances and minimises wow and flutter. Pro-Ject's separately available Record Puck PRO provides an extra level of damping and stability, so it is the perfect add-on for the Debut PRO.

    HYBRID TONEARM
    The new Debut PRO features a one-piece carbon-aluminium sandwich tonearm. The carbon layer gives the tonearm a high degree of rigidity, while the inner aluminium tube takes over the damping of the tonearm. This makes the tonearm perfect to be upgraded with higher-end MC cartridges!

    AZIMUTH & VTA ADJUSTMENT
    The newly designed tonearm base allows you to adjust both the azimuth and the vertical tracking angle (VTA). The tonearm height can be continuously adjusted by loosening the two grub screws. These settings give you the option of adapting the tonearm to height changes allowing the use of different turntable mats or other cartridges to always achieve the best sound quality. Setting and experimenting with the VTA & Azimuth is crucial in extracting every last bit of performance out of your cartridges.

    Pick it PRO
    Lively and robust sound
    The perfect combination of components is the key to achieve the great sound of the Pick it PRO.

    Nickel Coating
    Sustainable components
    The nickel finish of the aluminium components results in a hard, resistant surface.

    Hybrid Tonearm
    Carbon Aluminium Sandwich
    This super stiff and uniquely dampened tonearm ensures perfect tracking of the record groove.

    VTA & Azimuth
    Fully adjustable
    The Debut PRO comes with fully adjustable Azimuth & VTA. It offers you the possibility to modify your turntable as you want it.

    33/45/78 RPM
    High precision motor control
    The speed, electronically controlled with precision, guarantees the most accurate and stable speeds. Change between speeds easily with the toggle switch.

    Bearing block
    Complete new design
    The precision CNC milled and nickel coated tonearm bearing parts are completely new designed just for the PRO.

    Special Platter
    TPE damped & anti magnetic
    The heavy aluminium platter has a ring made of TPE (thermoplastic elastomer) on the inside that helps to dampen all resonances and thus minimise wow and flutter.

    Metal Feet
    Damped & height adjustable
    The three height adjustable damped aluminium feet guarantee the perfect stand & massively reduce risk of acoustical feedback.
