The first Debut turntable was a revolution for the hi-fi industry. For the first time after the arrival of Compact Disc and the assumed demise of vinyl records, an analog product re-emerged in the "mass market" - something all music lovers could afford. The Debut Carbon Esprit (DC) was designed to set new standards in this category for the coming decade - perfectly timed as analog today is again a respected source, while the demand for good turntables is growing again! The most obvious improvement is the inclusion of a carbon tube for the tonearm, which increases stiffness and decreases unwanted resonance. This material normally is extensively used in high-end tonearms, but - because of cost reasons - was never used in products at lower price levels. Together with other improvements like an increase in platter size and weight to realize even smoother rotation the overall sound quality is greatly improved. The approved belt drive design offers low noise AC motor with effective motor decoupling (utilizing TPE damping) and ultra precision frequency DC-driven AC generator for ultimate speed stability without unwanted vibration.
