Great finish-very solid table...Very easy to set up, and sounds awesome!...I have not used the USB output to transfer to a computer yet, but that seems like a great feature....It is more of a matte finish, and really does basically look like a tie-dye shirt...really cool in person.

I like a lot...I recommend....This is a one of a kind turntable and is a great collectors piece for my Beatles collection...if you dont need built in amplifier (built in amps are no good) again if you dont need a direct drive, pitch control and plan to use it just for home listening I would recommend this turntable you just need a amplifier and speakers and you are set.

Limited edition (only at Magnolia)Travel back in time with the Pro-Ject Debut Carbon DC turntable. It commemorates the historic 1964 U.S. tour by the Beatles, and ticket stubs from the legendary tour dot the plinth, which has a premium high-gloss finish. The Debut Carbon DC has an acrylic platter, carbon fiber tonearm and modern Ortofon red cartridge that create a visually stunning work of art.
Awesome Product...Great turntable...Known issue but YouTube was great for setup.
DEBUT Carbon DC was designed to set higher standards in this category for the coming decade - perfectly timed as analog today is again a respected source, while the demand for good turntables is growing again! The most obvious improvement is the inclusion of a CARBON TUBE for the tonearm, which increases stiffness and decreases unwanted resonance. This material normally is extensively used in high-end tonearms, but - because of cost reasons - was never used in products at lower price levels. Together with other improvements like an increase in platter size and weight to realize even smoother rotation, the overall sound quality is greatly improved. The approved belt drive design offers low noise AC motor with effective motor decoupling and ultra-precision frequency DC-driven AC generator (like Speed Box) for ultimate speed stability without unwanted vibration.
