Pro-Ject Phono Box DS2 Phonostage

Premium class phono preamplifier with MM & MC capability

Phono Box DS2 is a highly adjustable phono preamplifier suitable for all common MM and MC cartridges. With the ability to switch easily between input impedance and capacitance, as well as gain on the front it becomes one of the most user-friendly phonostages at this price point. It features one pair of RCA inputs for your turntable and one pair of RCA outputs which will be connected to your pre-amplifier or integrated amplifier.

The casing is made of a durable aluminum metal sandwich construction, which protects against electromagnetic interferences and vibrations. Phono Box DS2 features a very linear circuit design to deliver the best possible sound from a minimalistic PCB. With its high-value sonics and low-cost price it becomes an audiophile bargain!
