The USB Box S+ from Box Design by Pro-Ject Audio Systems is now available in the UK, turning computers into serious hi-fi sources.
It brings the most advanced technologies surrounding asynchronous USB data transfer together into a very user-friendly Digital/Analogue Converter. A great buy for any dedicated computer audiophile and as simple to set up as plug-in-and-play for most operating systems.
It delivers true hi-fi quality sound with the addition of a high-end XMOS chipset to handle asynchronous USB streaming up to 32-bit/384kHz.The further benefit of a 2.1V RMS output means the audio signal path after the chip is clear of superfluous extra capacitors. And when it comes to sound quality, less is always more.
The USB Box S+ perfectly matches the size and aesthetic of other models in the Box Design ‘S’ range but is also a great partner for other non-Pro-Ject electronics.
This little box truly takes USB streaming to a whole new level, at a very competitive price.
So... why the Pro-Ject USB Box S+?
- Premium 32-bit / 384kHz PCM-5102A DAC chip from Burr Brown
- XMOS technology for lowest possible jitter
- Upsampling to 352.8kHz or 384kHz
- 32-bit / 384kHz asynchronous USB streaming
- Dedicated USB 2.0 driver for Windows Operating Systems (Apple and Linux are driver-less)
- 2 selectable filters
- Ultra-linear circuitry
- Extremely low impedance on output stage
- Silver or Black face-plate
'The Pro-Ject USB Box S+ may be a small package but it produces a big detailed and rich sound' (Hi-Fi World Magazine September 2014)
- 'There's also a refreshing balance to the sound, with no undue emphasis on any part of the sonic spectrum. Instead the Pro-Ject retains an even-handed approach at all times which ensures treble is bright without veering into nastiness, while the midband is smooth and detailed.' (Hi-Fi World Magazine September 2014)
- 'Overall the sound is more spacious which shows the little Pro-Ject is well capable of handling high-res material.' (Hi-Fi World Magazine September 2014)
