A silent running AC motor with two-step metal pulley drives the hub and platter via a flat-ground belt
The medium density fiber plinth uses four shock absorbing feet
Drive motor is decoupled from the plinth to reduce vibration transmission
The nearly three pound sheet-steel sandwiched platter provides excellent speed stability and protects records with a felt mat
A precision chrome-plated stainless-steel axle couples the platter to a polished ball bearing in a brass housing for low resistance and ultra-quiet rotation
An external power supply reduces the chance of electro-mechanical interference
Both the 8.6 inch tonearm and fixed headshell are constructed from a single piece of aluminum for superior rigidity and low resonance
Inverted horizontal bearings consist of two hardened stainless-steel points resting on sapphire pads for outstanding tonearm stability and tracking capability
A flexible counterweight shaft avoids undesirable vibrations from occurring
Adjustment of needle azimuth is easily accomplished by a single-screw adjustment
Internal tonearm wiring is of high-purity copper and terminated directly to gold-plated sockets at both the headshell and phono jacks for low-noise signal transmission
A supplied 3.5mm jack can be used to connect the Pro-Ject Debut III Phono USB to any line level/auxiliary input such as a computer, MIDI system, mixer, etc.
