Modern style meets retro sound with the Project Debut Carbon turntable

modern style meets retro sound project debut carbon turntable
With all the attention high-resolution digital audio is getting these days, it might be easy to forget that vinyl – yes, vinyl record albums – are coming back in a big way.

Lest you think spinning wax is a hobby enjoyed exclusively by hipsters and audiophile recluses, consider these recent events: Jack White’s newest album just broke a record for most vinyl albums sold in a week, racking up over 40,000 unit sales following its debut; North America’s biggest vinyl record presser is undergoing a massive expansion to double its record production; Disc Makers just bought back all the vinyl presses it sold so that it can resume vinyl production, due to strong demand.

See? There’s no shame in going retro and enjoying all the benefits – and embracing the quirks – of putting needle to groove for some sweet sounding tunes; lots of folks are doing it. And thankfully,  just because you want to arm your entertainment with analog discs doesn’t mean your playback device has to sport the style of the 1970’s. Check out the Project Debut Carbon turntable with USB output.

Featuring a solid, glossy plinth available in seven colors, a Carbon Tube tonearm, heavy, felt-laden platter and your choice of one of two outstanding Ortofon cartridges, the Debut Carbon is prepped to deliver outstanding sound from your favorite LPs. Add in a USB output for playback or recording through a PC, and you’ve got yourself a classic music-maker with modern-day convenience and a style worthy of your living area. Hey, if it’s good enough for Daft Punk, it could be good enough for you.

The Project Debut Carbon turntables are available for $400 at many retailers. Scoop one up, then hit your local record shop to start digging up your favorites.
