Having apparently taken a reference from a Jony Ive design book, Pro-Ject has unveiled an all-white limited edition of the mid-range Debut PRO turntable.
The Austrian company’s original version of the Debut Pro was released last year as the successor for audiophiles Project Carbon Evo debut.
As with the original, the Limited Edition Debut PRO features a precision aluminum shroud complete with TPE damping and height-adjustable metal feet.
Aside from the Clean-as-a-whistle finish, the only major spec difference from the original satin black model is the pre-installed 2M White Ortofon cartridge instead of the 2M Red.
In addition to pre-installing the cartridge, Pro-Ject also bundles in a Pro-Ject Connect-IT E dust cover and phono cable.
The limited edition Pro-Ject Debut PRO will go on sale later this month and is set to cost £699 in the UK and €799 in Europe. The original cost $999 in the US, so we expect the same for this version.
Opinion: The Debut Pro is all white with an old Apple look
While Project may be celebrating its ’90s formation with these limited-run steel wheels, there’s definitely a touch of ’00s techno elegance with this finish.
The simple design has us pairing it with the ominous destiny Apple iPod Heavybut let’s be honest – this turntable deserves better than being outfitted for that boozy mess.
The original Debut Pro is a fine piece of equipment, providing a stable, controlled sound, and this fresh new look certainly gets our aesthetic stamp of approval. It’s one thing for The best turntables To go for a bold colorful look…it’s a completely A different matter to be literally all that color and color and everything. We would have been happy to have this about just a technical instrument, but that would waste its musical potential.
