True Balanced, Dual Mono, Fully Discrete Phono StageAt Pro-Ject, balanced connections were exclusive to the RS range of products until now. The Phono Box DS3 B offers some of the high-end features of the Phono Box RS2 at a more modest price, including the new True Balanced Connection.
A Broad Array of Cartridges AwaitThe Phono Box DS3 matches superbly to a wide range of cartridges thanks to precise load impedence adjustment on the front panel for moving coil cartridges. Because the impedance can be adjusted so easily and in real time as a record is playing, getting the exact setting for your taste is simple.
High End DesignThe Phono Box DS3 B incorporates a fully balanced gain stage design. Whether you're using a single-ended RCA or balanced connection, the fully symmetrical gain stage can optimise signal-to-noise ratios, feeding the fully passive and discrete RIAA equalization stage with the cleanest signal to work its magic on. Entirely split passive equalization allows for better impedance matching and lower deviation from the ideal RIAA curve.
Elsewhere, the Phono Box DS3 B uses fully discrete audio circuitry. A discrete circuit is composed of disparate, individual electronic components, also called discrete components. Years of experience have proven that even the best Op-Amps do not come close to the neutral, natural, dynamic, and vivid presentations of discrete circuitry.
True Balanced ConnectionThe Phono Box DS3 B offers the option of running a fully balanced signal. And the best part is that thanks to a range of new cables from Pro-Ject, these inputs can be used with any Pro-Ject turntable, whether it has RCA or 5P XLR outputs.
However, to truly utilise the balanced circuitry, a Pro-Ject turntable with a moving coil cartridge and 5P output can be connected to the Phono Box DS3 B with a 5P to XLR cable. The decreased noise and interference and improved dynamics have to be heard to be believed.
Pro-Ject Audio has been reviving music since 1990. After the fall of the Berlin Wall, when factories were closing in droves, founder Heinz Lichtenegger bought a turntable factory in the small Czech town of Litovel. Retaining the experienced staff and re-imagining classic turntable designs, we went to work constructing low cost, design-oriented turntables that would help people rediscover music the way it should be.
We're still working with the same staff out of the same small factory in Litovel. We've kept revising our low cost options for the easiest use, best sound and cleanest finish. But we also build midrange and high end turntables... and a whole lot more.
We don't expect you to believe everything we say. You've got no reason to trust us, so don't. Look up reviews and ask your friends. We're talked about and reviewed positively, and for good reason. Whether you're after a cheap and easy 'table, a high end award winner or quality hi-fi equipment, you'll keep coming across one name. That's Pro-Ject Audio Systems.
