Pro-Ject has just launched the Debut PRO S – the new flagship of the Debut series. It’s a bit bigger, better built and should sound even better.

The turntables in the Debut series tend to be simple and manual, aimed primarily at those who need an affordable and simple turntable.

With this new member of the family, some things have happened that suggest Pro-Ject believes the Debut PRO S should be the series’ very best turntable.

A larger plinth, which is 46.5 cm wide, provides a more stable turntable. It has been equipped with a new 10-inch S-shaped tonearm with SME connector, with vertical tracking angle adjustment and detachable pickup. The latter is a Pick it S2 C, made for Pro-Ject by Ortofon, and with the characteristic Concorde bend.

An aluminium sub-platter is driven by a silicone belt, and on top a TPE-damped aluminium platter rotates. Incidentally, an extra strap is included for playing 78s.

TPE (thermoplastic elastomers) are also used in the motor mount to dampen vibrations, and the player has adjustable feet in CNC-machined aluminium.
