Pro-Ject Phono Box DS2 USB Phonostage

Phono preamplifier with HiRes digital USB output

Phono preamplifier for MM/MC cartridges with analog, digital optical, and USB output! Digitize those out-of-print records with the Phono Box DS2 USB. This sophisticated phonostage is  based on high-end passive/active ultra-linear phono equalization. It has MM and MC capability as well as extensive variable impedance and capacitance settings. Two individual phono inputs allow you to use two different turntables or tonearm/cartridge combinations.

A low-noise and jitter-free A/D converter converts the analog signal into high-resolution digital PCM up to 192kHz or DSD 128. You can record on any computer via the USB output. There is also an analog line input to digitize other analog audio sources.
