Pro-Ject’s Debut Pro S Turntable
To mark Pro-Ject’s 30th anniversary, they revealed the Debut Pro S.
For those that attended the High End in Munich, you witnessed the Pro S in action. If you didn’t have a glance at the Pro S, here’s everything you need to know about Pro-Ject’s anniversary release.
The Pro-Ject Debut Pro S
To kick things off, it comes with a new tonearm. A 10-inch S-shaped tonearm with an effective length of 254mm. Its aluminum tube is mounted onto a precision-milled bearing housing, which sits on top of a mounting plate that allows for VTA adjustment.
Not only that but, its SME-type connector enables easy switching between headshells. You can quickly swap in different cartridges if you have stereo and mono carts or have favorites depending on the genre. However, the Debut Pro S comes fitted with a Pro-Ject Pick-IT S2 C cartridge.
The new tonearm requires a larger (145 x 462 x 345mm (HxWxD)) MDF main chassis. It’s finished in satin black. The Pro’s diamond-cut aluminum sub-platter and three height-adjustable, damped metal feet remain, with the onboard AC drive decoupled from the main chassis by a mounting plate with TPE-damped fixing points.
The result promises minimal interference with Pro-Ject stating a 68dB signal to noise measurement. Wow & Flutter is quoted as 0.16% at 33RPM and 0.14% at 45RPM.
Additionally, the Pro-Ject Debut Pro S comes with a dust cover and Connect-IT E phono cable.
The Debut Pro S isn’t like other turntables by Pro-Ject. It’s meant to be an innovative evolution of the Debut Pro. Not only that but, this year alone, Pro-Ject has been extremely forthcoming with its releases.
Price Of The Pro-Ject Debut Pro S
The Pro-Ject Debut Pro S retails at £799.
