Pro-Ject Debut Carbon: Raising the Bar for Tables Under $500 Now Ships with the Award-Winning Ortofon 2M Red "In the ways that analog trumps digital, I'm confident the Carbon will sonically outperform any cheap CD player, particularly in terms of musical flow and general warmth. Pair it with a Bellari tubed phono preamp and play the combo for a kid weaned on MP3s and he or she is likely to start bawling. Literally. The sense of depth and spaciousness plus the image stability is impressive. Most highly recommended. I don't know what else comes close for $399." – Michael Fremer, Stereophile Pro-Ject's innovative Debut line redefined what an affordable turntable could deliver. Pro-Ject has now once again challenged convention with the Debut Carbon, offering even better performance at an accessible price. The upgrades over the Debut III are numerous, including the addition of an 8.6" completely carbon fiber tonearm that increases stiffness while decreasing unwanted resonances. This results in a higher fidelity presentation of your treasured recordings. Fitted to the carbon fiber arm is a true high-end cartridge, the 2M Red by Ortofon. This arm/cartridge combination is quite capable of exceptional tracking and recovery of the musical nuance found within the records grooves. This excellent upgrade takes this analog package to a higher performance level. "The Debut Carbon nails the basics: dynamic shading and speed constancy. The essentials of what we call 'rhythm and pace' are impressive. Whether for first-time turntable buyers or anyone wishing to enjoy high-quality LP playback without spending a lot of money, Pro-Ject's Debut Carbon is a great way to go." – Wayne Garcia, The Absolute Sound The attractive, piano-gloss finished, resonance-reducing MDF plinth supports a heavier and wider diameter low-resonance platter for smoother rotation and lower wow and flutter. Additionally, a felt record mat is employed for superior r

Set up wasn't too bad - I recommend watching the video if you've never done it before (or are rusty like me). I haven't had the hum issues that others have reported - maybe I'm lucky. I did replace the platter mat with a better one I had for my old table.
Obviously, there are far better tables on the market - for ten times the price. Others may disagree - audiophiles love to bicker.
One note of caution, however. The turntable that was shipped was the DC model, which is not mentioned on the product site. It's also only in small letters on the box label. What this means is that you cannot use the Pro-Ject Speed Box with this turntable, so don't waste your money buying one.
Overall, the player has a solid-heavy base, carbon fiber arm, Ortofon2M red cartridge (what i got, i think you can get another), heavy duty platter, felt platter cover, and dust cover for the player.
You will need a pre-amp if you get the non-usb version like I did. I definitely think this is worth the money, and its a player that you can keep for a long time to come. Might as well spend a little more up-front than buy 2 or 3 cheaper players.
