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.

Inspired by the Essential III Digital turntable, the Optical Box E Phono from Box Design by Pro-Ject Audio Systems gives digital audio enthusiasts a phono stage that can integrate a turntable into their audio system via optical transmission.

With the ever-increasing presence of soundbars, and the ongoing rise in the popularity of digital audio systems, there are many people in the market who may be interested in the vinyl revival but will struggle to integrate a turntable into their existing audio system. The Optical Box E Phono is an advanced MM-compatible phono stage with precise RIAA equalisation, based on the coveted Phono Box E design, including gold-plated RCA inputs and a Line level 3.5mm jack output. However, the addition of a high-quality (24-bit / 96kHz) optical output allows for easy integration into a digital audio system.

The Optical Box E Phono plays through the analogue and digital outputs simultaneously, and the inclusion of an additional Line level input allows this small-but-clever box to act as an input extender for any hi-fi system. The stylish housing - available in black or white - is also shielded with a metal interior, which protects the unit against vibrations and radio frequency interferences.

The Optical Box E Phono is the perfect partner for all audio enthusiasts who want to add analogue sources to their digital audio system.
