About
Pro-Ject Audio Systems
Pro-Ject Audio Systems are widely recognised as one of the finest turntable manufacturers in the world. Their mission is simply to produce the best sounding stereo analogue components at the most competitive prices possible. The current series spans a wide range of price points, with a variety of products targeted to key demographics or to accommodate the modern listener’s unique requirements.
In 2016, Pro-Ject marked their 25th anniversary year with the release of a turntable that combined traditional styling with modern technology; showing their innate ability to keep turntables fresh and interesting at a time when popularity of the vinyl format was at a previously unprecedented level. The Classic proudly sits in the middle of a multi-award winning range of turntables that manage to combine sound performance with the latest technologies and unrivalled style at every level.
Pro-Ject are also obsessed with the importance of stereo playback systems. With modern audio systems often bringing speakers either very close together or into a single enclosure, the real impact and importance of true hi-fi stereo is being lost. That’s why everything Pro-Ject create is made with pure stereo applications in mind; bringing back the true emotional importance of music to audio enthusiasts around the world.
Based in Vienna, Austria, all Pro-Ject Audio Systems turntables are made by a highly skilled workforce with great skill, care and attention in their central-European factory.

The Pre Box RS Digital combines all the features of the DAC Box RS with selectable solid-state or tube output stages.

As in all of Pro-Ject’s top-class digital products, they use PCM1792 DAC chips from Texas Instruments, but a new feature in the Pre Box RS Digital is its dual chip mode to achieve ultimate fidelity. As a selectable feature a second DAC chip from Texas Instruments is on board, that can handle up to 32bit/384kHz.

Included on the Pre Box Digital RS is a headphone output with selectable impedances for perfect matching with your headphones.

The Pre Box Digital RS offers 3-dimensional sound-staging, perfect micro dynamics and ultimate resolution combined with flexibility to use a wide range of digital and 1 analogue sound sources.

Combined with the Pro-Ject CD Box RS the Pre Box RS Digital will give outstanding sound experience, because of a I²S connection provided via RJ45 that offers jitter-free disc playback.
