Pro-ject Tube Box DS

 

The Pro-Ject Tube Box DS offers similar characteristics as the Tube Box S/E, but it also takes the sound performance and the feature-set to a whole other level when compared with its forebear.

Additional adaptation possibilities, including Pro-Ject's unique variable impedance dial and a switchable subsonic filter, make this new model ideal for use with high quality MM and MC cartridges. The high-quality valve output stage matches perfectly with these adjustment settings to produce a sound which far outweighs the product's attractive price point.

 


Features 

• MM/MC support
• Unique continuously variable input impedance loading  
• Gain adjustment 40/50/60 dB  
• Capacitive adjustment 100/200 pF  
• Capacitance switch for MM cartridges  
• Switchable subsonic filter  
• Dual mono tube triode architeture  
• Premium ECC-803 Golden Pin Tubes  
• Ultra low-noise semiconductors  
• SMD technology  
• Available in silver and black

New to vinyl and I have a basic setup of 2xperience sb(ortofon 2m blue) > connect-it cc > klipsch r-15pm.

In my noob experience and with the limitations of my powered bookshelf speakers, I did feel positive change in my system’s sound quality especially in depth-spacing, clarity, and bass. It gave a bigger sense of soundstage with instruments being a bit clearer. I partnered this with some Belden interconnects as my connect-it cc leans to the high clarity side already. Bass is definitely more present than before and this phonostage gave me the sense of being able to grasp the music. Even when you are already using good quality cables, you will still be able to notice the benefits this phonostage brings.
Given this still falls in the mid-range budget, I give this item 4 stars as it satisfied what I was looking for in a phonostage. This beefs-up the sound your system is currently producing with flexibility and options that could cater to future upgrades. Having a small footprint and with a very sturdy build, I am not regretting the purchase I made with this Tube Box DS.

Current setup: 2experienceSB (ortofon 2m blue) > connect-it CC > Tube Box DS > Belden interconnect > Klipsch r-15pm

Shipping of the item was quick to arrive where I stay, but fedex held on to it for 1 week saying that it was not due for delivery, so yeah, had to cringe and wait impatiently for the “delivery date”.

A.S is a reliable online shop. Already anticipating my second shipment of goodies =)

What a joy!!

The £425 I spent on the Tube Box is probably the best £425 I've spent in a long time! This is a little gem of a box and I've completely fallen back in love with vinyl. This site is called analogue seduction and the tube box does exactly that. It's added the warm and richness I was looking for in my vinyl playback. My records have never sounded so good and I've had many a jaw dropping moment since making this box part of my system. On occasion it has felt like the music is being played in front of me and not just a record playing. Everything just feels right and I've found myself up until 2am listening to records such is the pleasure it brings. Put simply I love it!!
