Time for Evolution
Ortofon have taken their most popular turntable design and improved every aspect of it. The result is an incredibly refined product.
We might seem too enthusiastic about a player in this price range, but the truth is that for the asking price, the Debut Carbon EVO does it all so well that it is hard not to admire the merit of the Austrian company.
The Debut Carbon EVO focuses on the core aspects that make a turntable sound great. Technically correct design - expert craftsmanship - handmade in the EU. This turntable is built to last you a lifetime!
Redesigned Motor Suspension
Ortofon used their technology and experience gained from the past and fit damping techniques of highend turntables into the Debut Carbon EVO. Looking at more advanced TPE damping and highmass sandwich constructions they were able to come up with a new motor and suspension solution for the Debut Carbon EVO.
Anytime the Perfect Stand
Ortofon's new Debut Carbon EVO does not just look great - it also always stands perfectly level. It uses 3 height adjustable heavy-duty metal feet to ensure a level positioning on every surface.
Controlled Playback Speed
Besides being able to effortlessly change replay speeds with the push of a button, the playback speed is electronically controlled with the utmost precision, which results in the most accurate and stable speeds.
Damped from the Inside
Ortofon's previous metal platter was already heavier than anybody elses on the market, but metal platters inherently have a disadvantage: resonance.
Ortofon's TPE (thermoplastic elastomer) technology now helps to damp the resonance completely and also increases the weight to 1,7 kg. Because the TPE is mounted to the inside of the platters rim, the moving energy will also create a flywheel effect. The result is an even quieter and noiseless operation with less wow and flutter.
You wont find any button, switch or printing on the plinth to ensure the luxurious aesthetics. The speed control switch has been moved to the bottom of the plinth, to keep the clean look the Debut is known for.
What impressed me the most was the easy setup. The Debut Carbon EVO took me under ten minutes to set up, and everything felt dialed-in and ready to go almost immediately.
Refined in Every Aspect
Improved Motor Suspension
The Debut Carbon EVO features Ortofon's new designed motor suspension. They've improved the old design to consistently reduce the vibrations better than before.
Damped & Height-Adjustable Metal Feet
The new Debut Carbon Evo stands on three height adjustable damped aluminium feet to guarantee the perfect stand.
Heavy Steel & TPE Damped 1.7 kg Platter
Ortofon added a TPE (thermoplastic elastomer) ring on the inside of the platter. The result is an even quieter and noiseless operation with less wow and flutter.
33/45/78 RPM High Precision Motor Control
The rocker switch on the bottom of the turntable allows you to change speeds with the push of only a single button.
From the Record to YOrtofon's Amplifier
8.6" Carbon Tonearm
The new Debut Carbon EVO features the proven 8,6 one piece Carbon tonearm design. The super stiff, but lightweight tonearm delivers an insane sound quality with a convincing sound stage.
Gold-Plated Output Sockets
You can always change Ortofon's RCA output cable and upgrade it with Ortofon's preffered one. The gold plated connectors will always provide the best connection.
Semi-Balanced RCA Phono Cable
To guarantee a perfect connection to Ortofon's amp you will find a high-quality phono RCA cable in the box. Ortofon's Connect it E is a semi-balanced, low-capacitance cable, with superior shielding.
