  1. Excellent condition throughout with original box and packing material. 9” Evolution carbon fiber arm, Clamp It, upgraded Connect It cables, and heavier counterweight. Ortofon 2M Red cartridge aligned and ready to go! Mahogany finish. Located in Brooklyn, NY. Would of course prefer a local deal, but have no problem shipping. Asking $1150 shipped or $1100 local, PayPal only and will include the fees in that. Thanks!
  2. So I recently got a used pro-ject debut carbon that doesn't have the ground wire for the phono preamp. I'm wondering if what kind of wire matters in terms of using it for a grounding wire or if anything will do. It's going to be connected to my bellari vp130. Just wanted to know if I should grab any kind of wire from home depot or order something specific from amazon.
  3. I've had my Debut Carbon for a few years now, and I'm thinking about upgrading my setup. Here's what I have currently: Pro-Ject Debut Carbon (with the Ortofon 2M Red that it came with) -> Sony STR-AV320 (receiver with phono input) -> Sharp CP-BA2650 speakers (in Speaker A) and Bose Interaudio 2000 speakers (in Speaker B ) Everything besides the turntable was given to me for free or super cheap, so I'm looking to swap some of those parts out. The problem is that I don't know what the bottleneck in my setup is. Does anyone have any experiences with this receiver or these speakers? If so, where should I go from here? For amps, I've been looking at the Yamaha A-S501, Onkyo A-9050, Music Hall a15.3, and the Marantz PM5004 or 6005. I also have a TCC TC-750LC preamp that I got before I got the receiver. Would it be worth it to throw this into my setup now, or is it not going to have much of an effect? Thanks in advance!
  4. Hi, first post. I've scanned through the first few pages and searched and haven't found much related to these turntables. I've decided to up my game and buy a real tt. I've been using and ion usb for a while but I'm afraid I'm damaging my records.i have been looking at the rega and the project carbon debut but I likebthe look of the u turn orbit. I did read there was a lot of variation in speed. Do any of you have any first hand experiebce? Thank you. http://store.uturnaudio.com
  5. Anyone know where to obtain one of these in Canada? Any I've found online don't seem to ship here. Ontario to be specific, any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
  6. So I just set up my first hifi system: Debut Carbon, Onkyo A-9050, and some Infinity RS5 speakers. I followed the tutorials for setting up the turntable and the needle tracks just fine, but the quality is shit. I hooked my phone up to my new amp and played the same song that was spinning on the table at the same time and the difference is huge. The mp3 version sounds amazing on this amp. Is the Ortofone 2M red a junk cartridge? Maybe my expectations were too high for this turntable? I played a few different records including 180g of RHCP-Stadium Arcadium. Looking for some insight. Thanks.
  7. $450 is the price for all new Carbons I see here in Canada. Go for it or wait for a cheaper deal on the stock model? Or go vintage? Or idk EDIT: Just got it. Turns out what I forgot in the listing was that it included a Q up tonearm lifter, which is $60. Not bad. c:
  8. I recently stumbled upon Michael Fremer's review of the Pro-ject Essential in Analog Planet. The critique of said turntable is informative, but what I found most interesting is the comparison between it and the Carbon. Basically Fremer contends that the Essential is a decent entry-level turntable, but for $100 more, you get way more bang for your buck with the Carbon. I quote ... "Here's the thing: Pro-Ject was obviously trying to give folks a serious, well-made turntable for as little as possible and in that they have succeeded. However, the Carbon for $100 more is way better than $100 better. Listening to the Carbon without being able to see it, you'd neverknow it was a $399 turntable. But listening to the Essential without seeing it, you'd know it was inexpensive (not "cheap")." I've never heard either of these tables so I have no real opinion. Still, since both come up in the entry-level turntable discussion quite a bit on VC, I figured that some of you might find the review enlightening.
