    Hi there, I’m new to this forum and I’m not very knowledgable about turntables so please, bare with me.

    I’ve been using a Project Debut II that I bought 12 years ago, and I just upgraded my amp and speakers, (Rega Brio-R and Monitor Audio RX1’s) and feel that it’s time to upgrade my Turntable also.

    My budget is £500 at the absolute maximum, and I’ve narrowed it down to the following..

    Project Xpression III with Ortofon 2M Red

    Project Carbon Espirit also with the 2M Red

    I’m getting extremely confused by all the different versions in these 2 ranges… ie; which ones have the RED cartridge and which ones have the built in speed box for easy speed changing??

    If someone could help to really outline the differences between these 2 turntables, and also to help me to understand which models have which features… that’d be highly appreciated!

    Thanks in advance,

    Alex :)
