News this week of the rather good looking Pro-Ject Debut PRO turntable. The Austrian company have released a new turntable to show off their years of experience.
Pro-Ject’s Debut was launched in 1998 and was a reflection of their desire to offer high-quality products at a reasonable price. After 23 years and several iterations, the Pro-Ject Debut PRO enters the Debut range at a new price point. The Pro-Ject Debut PRO features a new Pick-IT PRO moving magnet cartridge that has been developed with Ortofon, a new 8.6″ one-piece carbon-aluminium tonearm, a new nickel-plated aluminium tonearm bearing block and a new aluminium platter.
The Pro-Ject Debut PRO is retailing at £699 and is available in the UK from September 2021 in Satin Black finish from Henley Audio.
