I used to sell the Project tables (from budget to top end). I would personally save the extra £50ish and get the Debut 3 SE.

Was kinda hoping you'd see this, I remember you from a hi-fi thread I'd started years ago when I knew practically nothing about hi-fi, still don't

Unfortunately, my only way of buying the turntable itself is off Amazon (my dad is on a business trip to DC long enough for me to order it to him) cause it's too expensive where I come from. Amazon doesn't seem to have the Debut 3 SE in stock. What are the differences between the Debut and the Essential 2?

Heavier platter, better damping, smoother power supply, better tonearm, better cartridge.

Does any of that apply to the standard Debut 3 as well, or just the SE?

Yeah, it's the just the SE is better than the 3 all round.

Although now you mention DC, the SE is a UK only model, hence why you haven't found it on Amazon.

The Essential 2 is still a good purchase for the price though, considering the Debut 3 SE isn't available to me? Thinking of ordering it tomorrow.

Yeah, you wouldn't go far wrong with it. Very little scope for upgrading though, but then if you just want a plug and forget product, it's fine. I get upgradeitis like a little bitch, though.

Got this today (not my picture though). I'm such a sucker for interesting colour vinyls, great record as well.

Just ordered the Kerouac discography /200 on black from Holy Roar Records. If you like hardcore/heavy music and have 7 (Yes! Seven!) quid spare this is worth every penny. Also got some Rolo Tomassi 7" cause it was 2 quid and i haven't heard anything from them in long.

Question: I want a cheap, decent record player, is this good for that purpose?http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B008F...5&robot_redir=1
I've seen some others from my EXTREMELY limited amount of time spent looking into this, but this seems good for me because it's small, and I don't really need bells and whistles like a CD player or usb slot.

Hardly worth it. Pretty much any modern turntable within these styles and price point are garbage. Go for a vintage turntable such as pioneer, technics, etc.
