The Phono Box DS is an all-new, ultra-low-noise phono preamplifier that benefits from the same outstanding circuit technology from Dr Sykora found in the Phono Box DS+. The Phono Box DS is essentially a stream-lined version of its more advanced sibling, the DS+. Compared to the DS+, it does not have the screen or the same gold-contact relay-switching; but it does benefit from a more attractive price and an equal focus on user-friendliness. For the first time, nearly all setup options can be made via a simple button/led indicator on the front panel, avoiding the need for fiddly mini dip-switches or jumpers. This new member of the iconic Phono Box range offers exceptional performance and maximum flexibility for almost any MM or MC Cartridge available, making the DS an instant market leader considering its attractive price and stylish design. A subsonic filter, that prevents your amplifier and speakers from suffering with ultra-low rumble below 20Hz, is positioned on the rear panel. While carefully selected amplifier modules and audiophile-grade capacitors guarantee a breath-taking sound experience.

Pro-Ject

Pro-Ject is renowned for producing some of the best sounding turntables in the world for the lowest possible prices. They are often cited as being one of the key drivers behind the recent resurgence of vinyl in the UK and Europe in the early 2000’s. Products in their range are all affordably priced which goes against the common “cost-no-object” approach by other manufacturers. The goal of Pro-Ject has always been to produce products that are a reasonable price without compromising on quality or more importantly sonic performance.

Since the early days Pro-Ject has gained a name for manufacturing audiophile-grade analogue equipment that’s affordable for the many, not just the few. This approach has helped establish them as one of the best loved manufacturers of audio equipment in the world. The company was founded by genuine music lover and high-end audio distributor Heinz Lichtenegger in 1991.
