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.

"Setup of the Stream Box DS is quite painless... The Stream Box DS leapt onto my network with almost childish enthusiasm and found my media server without any difficulty..."
"Starting off with radio and the internet stream of KEXP 90.3 from Seattle, the Stream Box DS sounded neat and tidy enough."
When playing 24/192 files from a NAS drive and via USB: "Generally speaking, both of these were much better, with the unit offering an excellent sense of purity and air to the top end that is usually missing in CDs. By comparison, the CD copy sounded rather clanky and mechanical..."
"With some soft vocal jazz or smooth instrumental music, the Pro-Ject is a joy to listen to, washing the performance over you like bubbles in a hot bath."
"At the low end, the Pro-Ject was solid and, once again, nicely detailed."
"The Pro-Ject Stream Box DS is a versatile digital streaming solution that comes in the sort of typically enticing package that we have come to expect from Pro-Ject. The design is neat, it is easy to use and get running and the user interface is trouble-free."

"...the full colour TFT screen, which is something not present on similarly priced competitive products. This is both legible at a reasonable distance and is able to display album art." 
"The Pro-Ject supports the majority of available audio formats and, crucially, supports FLAC and LPCM streaming up to 24-bit/192kHz. This makes it one of the cheapest units to do so and hopefully lends it a degree of future proofing." 
"The front panel USB connection is also capable of music playback from an Apple device up to and including ALAC files." 
"Using Twonky media server on a Windows laptop, set-up proved to be quick and painless." 
"The Stream Box found content quickly and effectively and would start playback of selected material within a second or two of selecting it." 
"...[The Stream Box DS] is extremely forgiving of poorer recordings and manages to stay listenable with material down to and including 160 kbps AAC files." 
"...the Pro-Ject sounded entirely competent with material in bitrates up to and including ALAC material [when an iPod was connected]."
