Awesome pack for under $3k


The ProJect Debut Carbon Esprit turntable is an upgrade of the famous ProJect Debut Carbon turntable. Along with the great features and performance of the ProJect Debut Carbon DC such as the carbon fibre tonearm, the Debut Carbon Esprit SB has upgrades in several other areas. The first upgrade is the inclusion of the 33/45 rpm button saving the need to take the platter off and change the belt's location when changing from LP's to Singles and back. The second upgrade is that the steel platter has been swapped for ProJect's Acrylic platter which is known to improve sound quality playback by reducing noise. The third upgrade is the Ortofon 2M Red cartridge which means that even more musical detail is extracted from the record groove due to its eliptical stylus and improved cartridge internal parts. All in all, the ProJect Debut Carbon Esprit SB packs a lot of value and sound quality for the price.


The Marantz PM5005 integrated amplifier is a class act with its clever current feedback architecture and discrete audio circuitry creating a performance well exceeding its modest 40 watts per channel power rating. This technology gives the PM5005 the "horsepower" to optimise the dynamics of the music at whatever volume level. Aside from the enhanced performance the PM5005 is not short on features with an inbuilt phono preamplifier, source direct function to minimise the signal path and optimise clarity, a remote control and the ability to add a second pair of speakers. The PM5005 has raised the bar in its price category for great sound and great value.
