In-House CNC-Machined Aluminum Components
Take a closer look and you’ll find no hollow spaces nor plastic parts. Only high-quality aluminum parts are implemented to ensure optimal sound quality. The hand-painted precision CNC-milled components are visually stunning, lending themselves to the simple & modern aesthetics of Debut PRO S.
10″ Aluminum S-Shaped Tonearm
The latest s-shaped aluminum tonearm design ensures excellent damping and 10″ effective length enables perfect tracking of the record groove with minimal tracking error (including in the inner grooves). Compared to a straight tonearm, the s-shaped design requires more material and thus increases effective mass, accommodating cartridges that might be on the heavier side.
Adjustable VTA & Azimuth
Both azimuth and vertical tracking angle (VTA) are adjustable. Tonearm height can be easily changed by loosening the two grub screws at the rear of the armboard (then retightened!). For azimuth, there’s a single grub screw near the gimbal that allows for armtube rotation. Such versatility allows for endless experimentation with varying cartridges & records mats so that you can achieve the sonics that best suit you.
Built-In Speed Controller & Stabilizer
Platter speed is electronically controlled with the utmost precision ensuring speed accuracy & stability. Toggle between 33 & 45rpm with the flip of a switch. The supplied round belt for 78rpm records deepens the versatility of Debut PRO S. Coupled with the diamond-cut aluminum sub-platter, platter speed is impeccable. The sub-platter also increases the mass of the drive system resulting in additional damping of noise and unwanted resonance.
TPE-Damped Die-Cast Aluminum Record Platter
The die-cast aluminum platter is machined and balanced to perfection. Pro-Ject added a TPE-ring to the underside of the high-mass platter that increases damping and rotational mass, further improving speed stability.
