Power Box RS Phono: Reach the ultimate level in phono sound!  

We at Pro-Ject Audio Systems strongly believe that a power supply is a very important part of the audio path and significantly contributes to the sonic quality of an audio product. In order to offer a maximum in sound quality and optimum isolation of the phono preamplifier from mains interferences, we designed the Power Box RS Phono with battery power output. Pure and clean energy is very important everywhere where low level signals are amplified. A turntable cartridge deliveres the lowest signal level from all the known sources of audio signal. Typical level of a low output MC cartridge is about 0.2mV = 0.0002V. Such low level signal is very vulnerable against all kinds of interferences and noise.  

How it works?  

When Power Box RS Phono is connected to Phono Box RS and switched ON, only the accus are connected (adapter and charger are physically disconnected) so Phono Box RS is completely isolated from mains interferences. When accu voltage decreases and reaches certain limits, further playback will be a danger for status of the battery, the charger is automatically connected. This status is indicated by LED on the front panel. Everything continues without any limitation and playback is possible, but the advantage of completely isolating for the charging period is lost. Even if the biggest advantage is temporarily not available, the battery now works as very big filtration bank and the sound is still far better than in case of using the standard power adapter. When accu is fully charged, the charger is disconnected and again Power Box RS Phono powers Phono Box RS only from accu packs.

  • Replaces original “switching” power supplies

I honestly didn't realise how much of an improvement the power supply made (I changed more than it alone at the time - also adding Box RS power supplies to my other RS boxes) until I had to revert to using the wall wart for short time. Reverting to the original power supply made the whole sound suddenly loose it's sparkle and imaging. Quite a revelation.

Huge Difference!
Monday, 15 June 2015  | 

I bought the Amp box, Uni 4 way & Phono power box upgrades for my Pro-ject RS LIne kit.

There was an immediate change to the Sound Stage being presented in all areas. The sonic ceiling was lift and the floor dropped. The stage was bigger more defined and better placed in "space". Particularly the phono front end.

Would recommend this as great upgrade if you have this kit.

I think I have been a very early buyer of the Power Box Phono to go with my Box RS Phono Stage. The first sample lasted literally 15 mins then expired! A quick call to analogue Seduction and a new one was dispatched that day and arrived the following day - superb service! Put simply, this battery power supply makes everything that is good about the Box RS Phono better, better clarity and purity. It is basically a rechargeable battery supply, swiftly removing any mains hash from the very sensitive moving coil signal. It lasts 4 hours on battery backup, then switches seamlessly back to up an rated and filtered mains, taking around 4 hours to recharge. The sound is excellent, let's hope the reliability was only a hick up, but I cannot fault AS's response!
