ProJect Debut PRO - Pick It PRO - Pro-Ject Turntables
The Debut PRO brings an absolutely new design to Pro-Ject turntables. The audiophile turntable is convincing in all respects – not only visually, but more importantly also in terms of sound. The Pro-Ject 1 and its successor, the Debut series, revolutionized listening to music. These products brought back the love of analogue playback devices – a turning point for the vinyl industry. The old technology has made a comeback and is here to stay. The Debut PRO is a milestone for the next decades: A cult product that celebrates the great success of analogue music reproduction and the joy of stereo hi-fidelity in your home.
8,6‘‘ Carbon-Aluminium Tonearm
The Debut PRO features a one-piece carbon-aluminium sandwich tonearm. The carbon layer gives the tonearm a high degree of rigidity, while the inner aluminium tube takes over the damping of the tonearm. This super stiff and uniquely dampened tonearm construction.
Adjustable VTA & Azimuth
With the new tonearm of the Debut PRO, both the azimuth and the vertical tracking angle (VTA) can be set. The tonearm height can be continuously adjusted by loosening the two grub screws. These settings of the Debut PRO give you the option of adapting the tonearm to height changes, allowing the use of different turntable mats or other cartridges to always achieve the best sound quality.
Nickel-plated metal parts
The nickel finish of the aluminum components results in a hard, resistant surface. This process enables us to produce very high-quality and sustainable components and avoid plastics and similar materials that continue to age over time. The precision CNC milled parts are optically perfectly coordinated and lead the Debut PRO to its modern simple, elegant and unprecedented design.
Always the perfect speed
The speed, electronically controlled with precision, guarantees the most accurate and stable speeds. Change between speeds easily with the toggle switch. With the supplied round belt for 78 rpm, you can also listen to your shellac records. So that no motor vibrations reach the pickup, the Debut PRO has the new, proven motor suspension, which is responsible for the perfect decoupling of the motor.
The dampened 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 ring made of TPE (thermoplastic elastomer) on the inside that helps to dampen.

Fitted with Ortofon Pick It Pro Cartridge
Project have always been looking for the best price/performance ratio, with perfect manufacturing quality. For this reason, we decided to work with Ortofon to develop a unique range of cartridges. Thanks to the excellent manufacturing skills of Ortofon we were able to produce a very special cartridge: The Pick it PRO.
Cartridges are electromechanical transducers, where mechanical energy is transformed into an electrical signal. The real difference in sound happens here. The turntable itself should be as neutral as possible. The colour and life of the music come from the cartridge. We, therefore, designed our new Pick it PRO that delivers a more lively and robust sound and convinces with its wide dynamic range.
The actual sound of the cartridge depends on how you combine the different components that make up the cartridge: stylus, cantilever, cantilever suspension, coil material, number of coil windings, generator, etc... You cannot judge the cartridge by looking at just one specific part. Experience and the art of fine-tuning make a cartridge unique and special. The perfect combination of components is the key to achieve the great charismatic sound of the Pick it PRO. Intensive research, development, and listening tests have been necessary to achieve the sound we were looking for.
