Description

Stereo Box DS2 is Pro-Ject’s take on the classic stereo integrated with phono accommodation. The focus is outstanding, unimpeded sound quality with a simple, non-congested feature set. The preamp section houses a high-quality MM/MC-compatible phonostage. Three RCA line inputs make way for CD players, DACs, streaming devices, etc. For you convenience, we’ve also added a Bluetooth receiver for easy wireless playback from your phone or tablet. However, the real star of this show is the power amp section. Dual-mono designed and able to drive most speakers on the market, music will come alive with powerful transients and a rich, wide soundstage with mesmerizing dynamics.

Variable and fixed RCA outputs allow you to connect active speakers or a subwoofer. The 1/4″ headphone output on the front panel is driven by its own dedicated amplifier stage and has ample headroom to drive even demanding headphones. No corners were cut when designing the electrical circuitry and in this way, the relatively small and compact Stereo Box DS2 can compete with much bigger (and pricier) integrateds.
