Product Description

Pro-Ject CD Box RS2 T introduces the next generation of ultimate CD Transports, a refreshing change to streaming-centred products that currently dominate the market.

Still play music through a physical medium?

It is built on the principle of listening to music consciously. Pro-Ject recognises that just like with analogue records, people want the physical medium in hand. While many people still back CDs onto a hard disc drive or store them away, many also want to keep their best CDs to play on a good quality yet cost-effective CD-player.

Built around proven CD mechanisms

The production of this ultimate CD player was aided by Michael Jirousek from StreamUnlimited; a company formed largely of Philips CD player development department. CD Box RS2 T is the latest ultimate top-loading CD transports built around the StreamUnlimited CD mechanism CD–Pro 8 and servo system CD-84. The CD Box RS2 T takes playing standard Red Book Audio CDs to perfection.

Can you get quality playback from CDs?

Genuine Redbook CD players have become rare and real high-end mechanisms barely exist anymore even though the drive is essential for accurately reading CDs. Many drives rely on audio interpolation that can negatively impact sound. This is partially responsible for the unfavorable reputation of the CD medium. That's why Pro-Ject have dedicated their time, resources and energy to create a perfect, top-class CD transport again that can be used with your high-quality DAC.

Integrated Servo System

The CD Pro-8 has the servo system directly integrated in its aluminum body. The entire body is suspended on a proprietary anti-vibration system which enables control of the level of outside vibrations reaching the insides of the device. The CD mechanism is stabilised and secured, unaffected by external influences. Vibration dampers are mounted on the very rigid carbon fiber chassis, which further contributes to isolating the CD loader from the outside.

Construction Features

The whole chassis is firmly connected to the body to bring excellent rigidity to the whole system and effective isolation against the whole vibrational spectrum. The CD mechanism has an improved clamp from a new aluminium alloy. It is perfectly balanced and assures perfect contact between disc and drive for smooth rotation.

Why choose transport-only?

Being a transport-only device, the optical and coaxial S/PDIF outputs enable connection to your favorite high-end DAC. The AES/EBU digital output over XLR goes one step beyond the quality of optical or coaxial signals and at the ultimate top, the CD Box RS2 T offers an I²S + Masterclock output over HDMI. This standard offers the perfect digital interconnect and is the ideal solution to bypass the limitations that inherently come with other forms of digital audio connections.

Perfect match for Pre Box RS2

This makes it the perfect companion to Pre Box RS2, fully befitting of this digital transfer standard. The output options ensure all care and attention that goes into the design of the CD drive is not wasted. Foregoing any built-in converter and preamp ensures uninterrupted CD reading capabilities and enable the use of high-end DACs.

Pioneering technology

Pro-Ject are the first to use the new high-tech CD-Pro 8 drive with the Blue Tiger CD-84 servo board. The drive, chassis, suspension and servo board are new designs and offer unprecedented CD performance at this price point.

Long-lasting life

The massive chassis stays in alignment under high temperatures. The cogwheels run on precision steel axles. The chassis is milled to the highest accuracy from a solid block of aluminium and each turntable is lathed from steel and chrome plated. This is crucial for transportation and ensures it will last a lifetime.

RS2 T suspension system

The suspension system consists of a rigid carbon-fiber plate, carbon fiber tubes, springs, silicon dampers and screws. The suspension, cover and turntable platter are made of 100% real carbon fibre with sophisticated, ultra-precise levels of mechanics to read bit-perfect data stream. The robust chassis and electronics carry the perfect signal jitter-free to its high variety of outputs.

Available finishes

CD Box RS2 T is available in a precision machined, beautiful and elegant aluminium case in silver or black colour options. A new remote control in a new entirely aluminium chassis is also included in the packaging.
