Description

Debut Carbon EVO Turntable

Debut Carbon EVO focuses on the core aspects that make a turntable sound great. A technically correct design & expert craftsmanship by hand in the EU make this a turntable that is built to last you a lifetime! Any features with potential to negatively impact audio performance and/or longevity have been omitted. For this reason Debut Carbon EVO lacks a built-in phono stage, but MaiA S3’s MM input is more than capable of delivering high fidelity in this set. The solid, substantial MDF plinth is hand-painted with 8 coats for satin finishes that look and feel better than ever. These finishes have been selected for the set based on popularity: satin black, blue, green, white, yellow & real walnut veneer. The latest platter, motor-suspension, speed-control circuit and height-adjustable feet combine to form a Debut that not only sounds stunning, but also displays more impressively than any Debut that came before it.

MaiA S3 Stereo Integrated Amp

MaiA S3 (My Audio Integrated Amplifier) is a compact, feature-loaded solution for your hi-fi system. With 8 total inputs it’s ready for any source you can throw at it. It offers a phono RCA input for MM, MI or high output MC cartridges as well as 3 RCA inputs for other line-level sources. You can also connect digital sources such as TVs or CD transports via the coax and/or optical S/PDIF inputs, recruiting MaiA S3’s DAC with quality up to 24bit/192kHz. If you want to stream music from your mobile device or PC, simply connect to the high-definition AptX HD-capable Bluetooth 5.0 input with resolution up to 24bit/48kHz (better than standard CD quality).

Speaker Box 5 S2 Bookshelf Speakers

Speaker Box 5 S2 is characterized by its spacious and detailed sound. A 25mm silk dome tweeter delivers crystal clear highs while the 130mm fiberglass cone offers full-bodied, lush mids with tight, punchy bass. Made by hand in Europe, Speaker Box 5 S2 is manufactured from the highest quality parts & materials that lend themselves to truly unmatched sonics in this class of speaker. Special eco-friendly glue with max strength holds the cabinet together disallowing sound leakage.

Connect it LS S2 & Damp it

Connect it LS S2 is a high-quality speaker cable consisting of 4x 0.96mm² solid-core conductors in a circular array geometry. Each of the conductors are comprised of high-purity oxygen-free copper (HP-OFC). Damp it isolation pods are particularly suitable for bookshelf speakers. They prevent the transmission of structure-borne sound from sub-sonics up to 500Hz. The effect is similar to that of electronic sub-sonic filters but without their sonic disadvantages.

Reviews

“The Pro-Ject Debut Carbon Evo is easy to set up, has fantastic build quality, and is the best-sounding turntable we’ve tested.” – Chris Heinonen, Wirecutter

“The Pro-Ject Debut Carbon EVO offers everything you want in a player for the money: excellent sound quality, ease of setup and use, and striking looks. You would have to spend twice as much on another brand … to get better sound.” – Ty Pendlebury, CNET ‘Best Turntable <$600’ Feature

“This speaker stopped me dead in my tracks… twice. I can’t say that about a lot of speakers nowadays and yet this sub-$800 did exactly that. Of course I’m talking about Pro-Ject’s Speaker Box 5 S2.” – Andrew Robinson, Home Audio Reviewer
