I just purchased the Pro-Ject Carbon Esprit. I went with the Esprit over the DC simply to save on the platter upgrade at a later date. With the acrylic platter you can forgo the felt, rubber, cork mat as well. There are one or two additional benefits to the Esprit but I can't recall. In the end, the numbers just shook out better for me to get the Esprit.
Hope this helps.
