Product Description

Pro-Ject Phono Box DS2 USB Phono Stage offers the perfect solution for recording your vinyl in a simple yet highly effective way. This phono preamplifier showcases MM/MC cartridges with analogue, digital optic and a super-handy USB output. Its sleek design places it firmly in the DS2 family.

High-Calibre Performance

This sophisticated phono stage is based on a high-calibre passive/active ultra linear phono equalisation. MM and MC capability, as well as extensive variable impedance and capacitance settings, match any cartridge, to provide the highest class of optimum performance.

Two separate phono inputs allow you to utilise two different turntables or tonearm/cartridge combinations with varying sound characteristics to seamlessly match your favourite type of music.

Seamless Analogue to Digital Conversion

A very low noise and jitter free A/D converter transfer the analogue signal into a high-resolution digital format (PCM up to 192kHz or DSD 128). Through its USB output, you can record your vinyl on any computer. The model also features an analogue line input to digitalize other analogue audio sources. It also showcases a standard line output to connect the unit to your hi-fi system for added connectivity.

Beautifully Resilient

The Phono Box DS2 USB is crafted in a beautiful chassis made out of aluminium and metal, which offers an elegantly functional look while also avoiding the negative influence of mechanical or electromagnetic interference.

Press Reviews

  • 'the facias are clean and uncluttered. The effect is retro yet modern at the same time; unmistakably traditional hi-fi, yet modernised and sleek.' (Audio Appraisal, September 2017)

  • 'There is really only one way to describe the sound of the PhonoBox DS2 – natural… The sound was detailed with an excellent stereo image, no sibilance and levels of idle noise so low as to be irrelevant. Vinyl fans obsess over silent CD-like backgrounds far too much in my opinion, but that is what the combination of the Technics 1210, AT33 and PhonoBox DS2 produced.' (Audio Appraisal, September 2017)

  • 'Instruments were accurately portrayed and the overall performance was enjoyable in the way that a great analogue experience can be. The analogue to digital conversion appeared particularly transparent too. I had a hard time distinguishing between recordings made with the PhonoBox DS2 and the sound produced live through its analogue outputs, which is a major plus.' (Audio Appraisal, September 2017)

  • 'PhonoBox DS2 offers a neat solution to bring your turntable into the digital age. It offers those looking to transfer their vinyl for safe keeping or regular listening a convenient way to transfer their records in the best quality possible. And on top of that it’s a truly excellent phono stage for those looking to maximise the performance of any turntable and cartridge combination. Small in stature with plenty of useful features and excellent sound, this is yet another highly recommended pro-Ject product.' (Audio Appraisal, September 2017)
