    i was using wireworld eclipse speaker cables and equinox ic's that i liked. switched to morrow sp-2's then went to sp-5's. my modified magnepan mmg's really opened up and have more inner detail. i now use morrow ic's, sub, power, digital cables. if my project debut had rca's i would switch these too. the wireworld went to another system but i am sticking to the morrows in my main system. good job Mike

    I have a Pro-ject Debut III. I bought the Morrow PH4's and took the table to my dealer. He hardwired the PH4's into the turntable for me. Took about an hour and they charged me 40 bucks to do it. I got the stock cables back, just in case I ever wanted to switch back.......NOT!!!

    There are some other things you can do to the Debut III that really open it up.

    1. Get the speed box. Biggest improvement for the buck. Don't know why, but it is.
    2. Get the acrylic platter.
    3. Change the connectors. (This is what I suggested to be hardwired.
    4. Get some sorbethane grommets and put 2 under the moter mount and then slightly tighten with the transport screws, just until the grommets start to bulge. This is what Pro-ject is now doing on the Debut Carbon.
    5. Place 4 more grommets between the feet and plinth and tighten.
    6. Get some black Dynamat. Cut this into rectangles and squares that fit everywhere you can place them on the bottom of the plinth.
    7. Upgrade the cartridge. I went from the stock to the Ortofon 2M blue, and ultimately to the 2M black.

    Once you have done this, there is nothing under 1500.00 in a turntable that will touch it.

    I wish you well.

    Great recommendations! I would like to add a cork mat as an upgrade.

    With the Pro-Ject table you have to be careful with VTI. There is no adjustment with the arm. The acrylic platter does not need any other mats added to it according to my dealer.

    I added one to my Bergmann which also has an acrylic platter. I found it to be more musical with the cork.

    I will have to keep an eye out for one, or maybe give the thin Herbies mat a try.

    I also found my Sota to have a more organic sound when I added the Sota Groove Damper mat to their acrylic platter. The groove damper is an incredibly thin woven cloth like mat.

    Thin is going to be critical if I give one a try, since the VTI is a bit tough to do on my table.

    It can be ordered direct from Sota. I can assure you a thinner mat there is not
