Special edition audiophile phono stage
Fully discrete, high-end electrical design
Stylish chrome finish on copper chassis
Since introducing their first phono stage in the mid-1990s, Pro-Ject have now sold over 500,000 Phono Box products, cementing their position as a true leader in the analogue hi-fi market. The Phono Box Ultra 500 is a truly special phono stage built to celebrate the momentous milestone. Deceptively small and surprisingly affordable, the Phono Box Ultra 500 is a special edition device made to stand out from the crowd.
Internally, the Phono Box Ultra 500 makes use of the same technologies as the [LINK]Phono Box S2 Ultra[LINK], with its fully discrete layout, polystyrene capacitors and precise RIAA equalisation resulting in a warm, harmonious sound. But where it stands apart is in its striking chassis. The Phono Box Ultra 500’s elegant chrome surface masks a copper chassis, specially chosen for its superior ability to protect against high-frequency interferences.
Easy to set-up with a variety of capacitance, impedance and gain settings, the Phono Box Ultra 500 is easy to partner with any modern pick-up cartridge.
Supplied in a wooden display box and limited to 500 pieces worldwide, the Phono Box Ultra 500 is a true prestige piece that would sit comfortably at home in any premium listening environment.
