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.

Comments of Note:
“the Pro-Ject discovered my NAS drive running Twonky within seconds and from then on remained rock-solid, never dropping the connection even when streaming hi-res 24/192 files.”
“The Pro-Ject has a tonal quality quite different from most other streamers – and it translates into a quite beguiling sound. Its overall quality is smooth, relaxed and rather warm with little evidence of any digital sharpness. But that doesn't mean it is soft or lacking in rhythmic ability – just that it doesn’t throw everything in your face as some other streamers do.”
“There was no lack of detail on offer, which the subtle guitar and electronic embellishments being well delineated while the under lying bass work was rock solid.” 
“Point the stream box towards some intimate jazz and it really comes into its element.”
“A higher resolution FLAC download of Empirical’s Eric Dolphy tribute album ‘Out ‘n’ In’ has terrific tempo, tone and timbre to it – the interplay between the vibraphone and sax extremely well portrayed. Like Dolphy’s own work, this collection has real warmth and passion but for real effectiveness it demands a player that can also render the various musicians’ timing effectively – and the Pro-Ject is more than up to the task.”
“The Pro-Ject Stream Box RS is a refreshingly different addition to the ranks of music streamers. It has a smooth, relaxed and thoroughly civilised sound without ever straying into the realms of blandness.”
“A refined and smooth performer that brings something different to the ranks of music streamers.”

Comments of Note:
“Give the Pro-Ject something well recorded, but fundamentally mellow like Ali Farke Toure and Ry Cooder’s Talking Timbuktu and the Pro-Ject is as smooth, unforced and relaxing as a cold pint of Guinness.”
“The plucked strings of Toure’s guitar have a full-bodied and surprisingly weighty tone to them that lends each listen a richness that is rather beguiling.”
“Switch to something more aggressive and the Stream Box maintains this unflappable smoothness.”
“The presentation with internet radio is consistently good and the Stream Box RS is very forgiving of low bit-rate stations.”
“The preamp functionality is also well implemented and extremely useful.”
