  • Metal Feet – Damped & height adjustable – The three height adjustable damped aluminum feet guarantee the perfect stand & massively reduce risk of acoustical feedback.

PICK IT PRO

The new Pick it PRO delivers a more lively and robust sound and convinces with its big dynamic range. The perfect combination of components is the key to achieve the great charismatic sound of the Pick it PRO.

A MILESTONE FOR THE NEXT DECADES

The Debut PRO brings an absolutely new design to Pro-Ject turntables. The audiophile turntable is convincing in all respects – not only visually, but more importantly also in terms of sound.

The precision CNC milled parts are optically perfectly coordinated and lead the Debut PRO to its modern simple, elegant and unprecedented design. The nickel finish of all these aluminium components result in a hard, resistant surface. This process enables us to produce very high-quality and sustainable components and avoid plastics and similar materials that continue to age over time and would more importantly also degrade sound quality.

The tonearm bearing is a completely new design. Precision CNC'd out of a single block of aluminium, you can see all the production stages above. The last step is putting a nickel finish on it. This will increase the rigidity of the bearing, ensuring free and fluid movement of the tonearm and precise tracking without material degration in looks or function.

DEEPLY DRIVEN

The electronically regulated synchronous motor drives the platter and guarantees the most accurate and stable speeds. Change between them easily with the toggle switch. With the supplied round belt for 78 rpm you can also listen to your shellac records.


A NEW PLATTER – A DEEPER DISH

The new Debut PRO platter is a first on any Pro-Ject turntable. It features a notch for the record label and together with our Record Puck PRO (available separately) the puck's weight will press your record tightly against the platter. The die-cast aluminium platter is reworked and precision balanced in an extra step to obtain an evenly spinning platter. It is anti-magnetic, allowing MC cartridges to work properly. Delve deep into the vast upgrade path the Debut PRO has to offer!

The anti-magnetic heavy aluminium platter has a ring made of TPE (thermoplastic elastomer) on the inside that helps to dampen all resonances and minimizes wow and flutter. Our seperately available Record Puck PRO provides an extra level of damping and stability, so it is the perfect add-on for the Debut PRO

HYBRID TONEARM

The new Debut PRO features a one-piece carbon-aluminium sandwich tonearm. The carbon layer gives the tonearm a high degree of rigidity, while the inner aluminium tube takes over the damping of the tonearm. This makes the tonearm perfect to be upgraded with higher-end MC cartridges!

AZIMUTH & VTA ADJUSTMENT

The newly designed tonearm base allows you to adjust both the azimuth and the vertical tracking angle (VTA). The tonearm height can be continuously adjusted by loosening the two grub screws. These settings give you the option of adapting the tonearm to height changes allowing the use of different turntable mats or other cartridges to always achieve the best sound quality. Setting and experimenting with the VTA & Azimuth is crucial in extracting every last bit of performance out of your cartridges.

PSB ALPHA T20:

Signature speaker for both sound and aesthetics.

The PSB T20 Tower Speakers delivers the highest quality acoustics in the Alpha Series of Speakers and will easily fill any size room with lush, full-bodied sound. Leveraging the latest research in acoustic design and the most advanced cabinet and driver technologies, the all-new Alpha tower has dual custom 5¼” (133mm) woofers, while utilizing the Alpha Series’ patent tweeter and crossover design, to deliver bigger and bolder sound with flawless imaging. The new T20 tower is the perfect start to creating the ultimate affordable surround, or stereo system.

  • ¾” (19mm) Black anodized aluminium dome tweeter with front waveguide
  • Two 5¼” (133mm) Textured polypropylene woofers with rubber surround
  • Bass reflex cabinet design with a rear-firing port

Lifelike acoustics and detail

The T20 uses a ¾” (19mm) black anodized aluminium dome tweeter to extend the high-frequency response further than any Alpha ever before while lowering distortion to deliver a lush soundstage full of details. Unlike lesser designs at this price, all of the new Alpha Series tweeters employ ferrofluid cooling to prevent dynamic compression and a neodymium magnet for high sensitivity.

Developed for deep, detailed bass
Featuring PSB Speakers exclusive dual 5¼” (133mm) woofer connected to a dual-layer voice coil for incredible conductivity, the newest Alpha Series tower provides remarkable low-frequency response and exceptional efficiency for a speaker at this price. Starting with a specially textured polypropylene cone that lowers distortion and reduces breakup, the woofer is perfectly matched with the tweeter at the crossover for a smooth sounding transition between high and low frequencies. It’s also backed with a rear-firing port that uses bass flex to tightly control the bass response and extend it even lower.

Reference crossover design
The redesigned Alpha Series tower features a new crossover that exceeds speaker standards with an innovative design that delivers the tightest control and the flattest frequency response. Developed for more than directing low and high frequencies to the individual drivers, the crossover used in the T20 employs a very advanced Acoustic Linkwitz-Riley filter design in the cross to lower distortion and create a large, detailed soundstage for the best listening experience.

Crafted with precision
Using a special MDF material and a unique combination of wall thickness and bracing, the Alpha T20 Tower flawlessly controls resonances while leveraging a light internal material that has been accurately positioned to reduce standing waves. The sturdy, well-constructed cabinet is finished with a high-quality woodgrain vinyl and features acoustically-transparent magnetic grilles that make the speakers disappear into your décor without sonic interference.

NAD C368 AMPLIFIER:

INTRODUCING THE NAD C 368.

GETTING IT RIGHT

We never overlook the most crucial of requirements. From low noise circuits to precise volume control action, to accurate channel balance and proper input and output impedance characteristics, we here at NAD do everything we can to get these things exactly right. We also include an MM Phono stage with precisely accurate RIAA equalization, high overload margins, extremely low noise, and an innovative circuit to suppress infrasonic noise that is present on all LPs – all without affecting bass response. Our line inputs can accommodate all kinds of analogue source components by offering ideal input impedance characteristics with linear ultra-low-noise buffer amplifiers to prevent any sonic degradation. We include a separate headphone amplifier with low output impedance and very high output voltage capability – enough to drive even high impedance studio monitor headphones. Low impedance line outputs that can connect to subwoofers extend the versatility of this well thought out amplifier.

FORWARD THINKING

Modular Design Construction (MDC), allows you to customise your NAD amplifier with additional capabilities and features, now or in the future. The two available MDC slots can accommodate a variety of upgrade modules including 4K video capable HDMI switching, additional Digital Inputs, additional Analogue and Phono Inputs, and one of the most advanced Hi-Res Audio multi-room wireless systems available, the BluOS music management system developed by Bluesound. BluOS connects to your network and is controlled via smartphone, tablet or desktop to manage your music collection and connect you to a growing list of high-quality streaming music services.

INSTANT CONNECTION

You can connect instantly to the C 368 with Bluetooth® aptX®, allowing you to stream music wirelessly from any Bluetooth-enabled device. Bluetooth can also be used to listen to other sources connected to the C 368 via wireless headphones. There is also a control app to control all functions of your C 368. Adding the optional BluOS Module provides access to your local area network via Wi-Fi or wired Ethernet connection and adds Hi-Res Audio streaming. The BluOS Module also makes the C 368 a single-zone streamer in a complete multi-room wireless music system that is fully compatible with BluOS Enabled music systems and wireless speakers.

SOPHISTICATED POWER

In the last few years, NAD has moved away from the old-fashioned linear power supplies and Class AB output stages that waste energy, and have instead developed even better performing circuits based on switch mode power supplies and Class D output stages. Once thought to be inferior to traditional topologies, NAD’s advanced work in this area has created some of the best performing amplifiers regardless of basic design principle. These new designs are very linear over a wide bandwidth and provide consistent performance into all speaker loads, providing a dramatic advance over previous models.

Furthermore, the power supply is capable of 80 watts continuously and over 120 watts instantaneously to allow for short-term musical transients. It can operate with any AC mains voltage from 100 to 240 volts and provides pure DC power to all the various stages of the C 368. This highly efficient supply also provides near perfect regulation of voltage across a wide range of conditions and provides a solid noise-free foundation for the amplifying stages.

The C 368 uses a customized version of the proven Hypex UcD output stage. This allows for massive power with nearly unmeasurable distortion and noise in the audible range. Every detail of this design has been carefully planned and perfectly executed to produce every last drop of performance.
