The Head Box S2 Digital is a fully equipped desktop headphone amplifier. Equipped for even the most demanding digital audio guru.
It supports playback for PCM files up to 32bit / 768kHz and DSD decoding up to quad DSD (DSD256). Head Box S2 Digital also comes with five digital filters for sound-shaping to the listeners preferences. Three digital inputs ensure to connect to any source available, be it a personal computer via the USB B input or a TV set via the optical input. The co-axial S/PDIF input takes all data from a digital transport such as the CD Box DS2 T.
Thoughtfully considered design
The Pro-Ject Head Box S2 Digital features a front seated 6.35mm headphone output. Delivering a clean and precise sound with a musical touch. Unwanted noise coming in through USB is double filtered to a level where it can’t affect audio, enabling an undisturbed listening experience. The aluminium/metal has a lovely aesthetics but it also protects against vibration and interference in your delicate circuitry.

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.
