Top-Rated Pro-Ject Debut III Is Perfect for Anyone That Wants to Hear What Analog Can Really Do
Pro-Ject Debut III Arrives Fully Set-Up From the Factory and Includes Pre-Installed Ortofon OM-5e Cartridge
The award-winning Pro-Ject Debut III turntable makes playing vinyl LPs easy and fun, and at this special price, an irresistible pleasure. Debut III delivers rich, organic, and inviting analog sound at levels unrivaled for its price. A perfect introduction to the warm, involving, and detailed sonics afforded by LPs, it is your ticket to constant musical satisfaction. Given the discounted cost on this great 'table, you can get those old LPs out of the closet, attic, or basement and start having a blast with analog again. Or turn on a next-generation analog-loving audiophile by showing him or her that records do indeed sound better.
Even if you've never played an LP, operating the Debut III is delightfully simple. A pre-installed Ortofon OM-5e cartridge takes any worries out of the process. This ‘table comes straight from the factory already set up for use. You'll be spinning records within minutes of taking Debut III out of the box. And unlike most entry-level models, Debut III boasts extraordinary build quality and audiophile-quality sound. Its first-rate parts quality guarantees it will never damage your records or give you anything less than stunning performance.
From a technical standpoint, Debut III comes with an extremely quiet motor decoupled from the plinth in order to reduce vibrations and convey more realistic, transparent sound. The excellent tonearm has a silicone-damped arm lift, and high-purity copper wire stretches from the headshell leads to the RCA ends. A dustcover promises protection from dust and scratches.
Call any Music Direct analog specialist, and we can easily talk you through the last few installation steps to ensure your 'table is perfectly set up. Debut III is backed by the Music Direct 100% Money-Back Guarantee.
"They know how to build turntables at the Pro-Ject factory. Although the Debut III is their [introductory] model, great care has been lavished on its component parts (most are made in-house) and on the final setup. If you prefer to proceed cautiously into analog without risking a lot of money, Debut III will communicate the essence of analog as well as any. In some ways, no CD player, no matter how much you spend can compete!
