New Pro-Ject Debut PRO S Turntable


Pro-Ject writes: "The Pro-Ject Debut family has a new member! The Debut PRO S is the wider, blacker, and meaner Debut. The Debut PRO S offer all the features you’ve learned to love from our Debut PRO plus an S-shaped tonearm and SME-style connector for easy cartridge swapping. The elegant matte black theme covers the entire unit except for the shiny spindle." 


Our turntables demand conscious music listening. The Debut PRO S takes this philosophy to the extreme. We finished all parts except for the polished spindle in matte black. The manual controls invite the listener to interact with the turntable: turn it on, place the record on the platter, move and lower the tonearm. The musical reward follows the tactile experience. No unnecessary switches, LEDs, or labeling distract from what’s essential.

The Debut PRO S is available for MSRP 899 € (incl. VAT) with premounted Pro-Ject Pick it S2 C cartridge. At Pro-Ject dealers in September 2022.

A wider plinth


That’s right: The Debut PRO S is wider. We increased the plinth width to 465mm, which gives the De- but PRO S the hefty stance of its bigger siblings, the X2 and X8 but the same elegant thickness as its slimmer brother, the Debut PRO. This weight gain gives the player an even sturdier foundation for your record-playback and maintaining beautiful proportions.


Don’t twist my arm


Our new s-shaped 10“ aluminium tonearm with the PRO typical full aluminium precision CNC milled bearing offers an SME-style connector. Swapping different cartridges on your turntable, our Debut PRO S is a breeze. The fully adjustable tonearm al- lows you to experiment with the turntable sound.


Adjustable VTA & Azimuth


Adjust the azimuth and the vertical tracking angle (VTA) to accommodate almost any cartridge to fit on the Debut PRO S – quicker and easier than any previous Debut model.

Exact speed


The precision electronic speed control guaran- tees highly accurate and stable speeds. Change between speeds easily with the toggle switch. You can also listen to your shellac records with the supplied round belt for 78 rpm. The diamond-cut aluminium sub-platter ensures a perfect overall speed accuracy by adding more mass to the en- tire platter and drive system, resulting in addition- al noise-damping and less unwanted resonances.


Dampened die-cast alu platter


The die-cast aluminum platter gets reworked and precision balanced in an extra step to obtain a perfect platter.

The heavy aluminum platter has a TPE (thermo- plastic elastomer) ring on the inside that helps to dampen all resonances and thus minimize wow and flutter.

CNC precision


Take a close look at our new Debut PRO S. You won‘t find any hollow spaces or plas- tic parts. We only use high quality aluminium parts to ensure the best possible sound quality. The Debut PRO S’s precision CNC milled satin black painted parts underline the modern, simple, distinc- tive design.
