Time for Evolution. Project have taken their most popular turntable design and improved every aspect of it. The result is an incredibly refined product.
The Debut Carbon EVO features our new designed motor suspension. We have improved the old design to consistently reduce the vibrations better than before.
The new Debut Carbon Evo stands on three height adjustable damped aluminium feet to guarantee the perfect stand.
We added a TPE (thermoplastic elastomer) ring on the inside of the platter. The result is an even quieter and noiseless operation with less wow and flutter.
The rocker switch on the bottom of the turntable allows you to change speeds with the push of only a single button.
The Debut Carbon EVO focuses on the core aspects that make a turntable sound great. Technically correct design - expert craftsmanship - handmade in the EU. This turntable is built to last you a lifetime!
You wont find any button, switch or printing on the plinth to ensure the luxurious aesthetics. The speed control switch has been moved to the bottom of the plinth, to keep the clean look the Debut is known for.
The Debut Carbon EVO is not only timeless by offering traditional high-gloss black, white and red finishes or our fabled real-wood walnut veneer. Completely new, unique and trend-setting are the beautifully realized satin signature finishes in 5 different variations.
2M Red is an all-purpose cartridge that delivers open, dynamic sound with a slight touch of warmth.
The new Debut Carbon EVO features the proven 8,6‘‘ one piece Carbon tonearm design. The super stiff, but lightweight tonearm delivers an insane sound quality with a convincing sound stage.
You can always change your RCA output cable and upgrade it with your preffered one. The gold plated connectors will always provide the best connection.
To guarantee a perfect connection to your amp you will find a high-quality phono RCA cable in the box. Our Connect it E is a semi-balanced, low-capacitance cable, with superior shielding.

Back in 1958, at the age of only 24, Alex Encel set about building locally-made stereo systems for Australians. Over half a century has passed since Alex built his first pair of speakers by hand here in Melbourne, and now that tradition continues with a colourful range of bookshelf speakers: Gelati.
"This new speaker delivers a colourful, tutti-frutti range of sound that doesn't demand expensive auxiliary components for good results. It represents excellent value for money, punches well above its price and should definitely be high up your audition shortlist."
Encel Gelati are made in a number of uniquely flavoured lacquer and woodgrain cabinets like Birch Black, Vanilla, Caramel Walnut, and Pistachio.
They’re adaptable to the surrounds of your listening space, with 12 delicious magnetic grilles on offer in shades like Eucalyptus Green, Ocean Blue, Lemon Yellow and Coffee Brown. Swapping them out takes seconds, allowing you to choose and change your speakers' appearance. Gelati don't come with grilles as standard, allowing you to personalise their look.
Designed and voiced in Melbourne, Encel Gelati serve a svelte, engaging tone that performs confidently across a range of genres. Whether you're listening on vinyl, CD, or streaming, they promise a totally absorbing musical experience. Gelati are packaged with a minimum of disposable materials and manuals, with instructions and information available online at encel.com.au/gelati.
A defining trait of the Encel brand is artistic collaboration, with Melbourne-based illustrator Alice Oehr designing the Gelati’s packaging. And of course, Gelati are manufactured with sturdy, durable materials like MDF and kevlar, meaning their gift of great music will continue for years down the line.
Without a conductor, an orchestra is a room of unguided elements, struggling to find cohesion with one another. All of them individually brilliant, but without a guide to give them direction, to make the collective into one breathtaking whole. A good quality turntable and speakers both have the capacity to render music with majesty and emotion, though without an amplifier to process the turntable’s signal and provide the speakers with an electrical current infused with all that information, they both lie dormant.
An amplifier is the processing centre and the drive behind a great hi-fi system. It takes an input signal, imparts just the right amount of clean power, then pushes it out to the speakers, causing their drivers to vibrate and fill your room with wonderful music. If a turntable or CD player’s signal were played directly through your speakers you’d barely hear a thing. A quality amplifier significantly boosts the precious information from these source components without degrading or distorting it. In essence, an amplifier is the Brains that brings everything to life and paints all the rich, vivid detail.
Brains is an integrated amplifier equipped with an impressive range of inputs, the perfect focal point around which to build your sound system. You could be diving into vinyl for the first time, streaming music from your phone, digging out your old CD collection, or hooking up your TV for stirring cinematic sound. It has all those bases covered, and is housed in a beautifully minimalist chassis that slides comfortably into any room’s unique aesthetic. You can also enjoy some one-on-one time with your music with the headphone output, excellent for late night listening.
Brains is made from durable materials, chosen for their sturdy, robust qualities. With so many modern audio products designed to be upgraded or replaced within a few years, its beautiful, timeless looks and longevity are a breath of fresh air. Every aspect of the componentry is repairable, meaning it’ll continue bringing joyful sound into your life for as long as it’s loved, a wonderful family heirloom to deliver music for generations ahead.
Simple bass and treble controls allow you to shape your sound as you like, enriching music, films and games with low-end thunder or adding a touch of extra sparkle and clarity. Tone controls give the benefit of allowing you to adapt your sound to your specific listening conditions. Smaller speakers in a large room? Give the bass dial a generous spin. Music sounding a little flat in a smaller carpeted space? Get that treble singing. Brains hands you full control of your sound.
Input selection and volume can be adjusted from afar with the remote control, which is bundled free of charge at launch.
Brains boasts a high-current, low-noise transformer, engineered to eliminate unwanted physical vibrations and electrical interference. Think of it as the bridge between the power from the wall socket and the delicate internal circuitry of an amplifier. It’s absolutely essential that this circuitry is fed with clean power, free of electronic noise, and that’s precisely what the transformer does. Under the hood you’ll also find Class A/B amplification. Bluetooth speakers and wireless headphones use what’s called Class D amplification. It’s more efficient, and certainly fits into smaller spaces, but the organic, faithful, vividly rendered sound of Class A/B can’t be imitated or replaced. The resulting sound that’s created by these elements is nothing short of breathtaking.
The main chassis is custom-engineered from steel with special tooling for the solid aluminium front panel, and finished with a fine sand-blast to accentuate its elegant lines. Volume is controlled entirely in the analog domain, eliminating the introduction of digital artefacts.
Brains is available in black or white finishes with inverted shading for the control dials and input selectors. Design work was undertaken in Melbourne, with dozens of iterations experimented with and refined before arriving at the finished product. Every aspect of the engineering and hardware have been chosen with beautiful, natural sound at front of mind. Encel has been bringing wonderful sound to Australian living rooms for over 60 years, and here that legacy continues boldly.
Brains is covered by a three year manufacturer’s warranty.
