Pro-Ject Debut III Belt Drive turntable
The Pro-Ject Debut III Turntable isn't too vintage - made back in 2010. It does have a great track record - no other analogue hi-fi product was more often honoured to be a real "Best Buy" than the Pro-Ject Debut III. A real bargain with outstanding sound quality!
From the StereoPhile review at the time:
"As I unpacked and set up the Debut III, I noted how well-thought-out and simple the design is, and how rugged and stable it seems. As I examined the Debut III, the phrase "cost-cutting to a price point" never entered my mind....suffice it to say that the performance of the Pro-Ject Debut III startled me with the level of musical realism possible at this price. ...the Debut III would be an excellent first turntable to suck an incipient if not quite budding audiophile into the hobby."
This turntable has been recently serviced and is ready to spin for you. It also comes with a new stylus and is fully setup in all repects.
