Debut PRO S extends the PRO series in style and is consistent with our philosophy to turntables that nurture conscious listening. Debut PRO S takes this philosophy to the next level. The manual controls invite the listener to interact with the turntable. The audible reward follows from the tactile experience. There are no unnecessary switches, LEDs nor labeling to distract from the essentials here. Our latest s-shaped 10″ aluminum tonearm design is precision-machined and includes a CNC-milled bearing block for a new degree of resolution. Debut PRO S is perfect for the cartridge lover, allowing exploration of various voices via easy swapping of the phono cartridge & headshell. Tack on azimuth & VTA adjustment and you have full control over over the setup parameters of your cartridge. As usual, the deck is handmade in Europe using top-quality materials. The full satin black finish (including hand-painted parts) makes Debut PRO S a intriguing eyecatcher that looks as good as it sounds.
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.
Our 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.
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.
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.
The die-cast aluminum platter is machined and balanced to perfection. We add a TPE-ring to the underside of the high-mass platter that increases damping and rotational mass, further improving speed stability.
