Pro-Ject Phono Tube Box DS2 Lid Lifted

Recommended Posts

Nothing special inside however experience has taught me that super components doesn't necessarily equal super sound so I look forward to hearing what this has to offer. Standard fare of Burr Brown OPA2134 op amps, WIMA caps etc.

I previously had the original Tube Box DS, if they have improved on that I think you'll be doing pretty well for yourself.

Bought mine from Germany but have noticed these are now available here.

Good pickup. Let us know your thoughts on the DS2, I am looking for some 'warmth' before the D class gets hold of the signal :)

Did the new sub warm or smoother things up at all?

The sub definitely added the extra tones in the lower registers. I have the crossover set near its highest setting ~100-120 and the volume is fairly low to keep it all balanced nicely. I think the addition of the SRM mat also gave me some better control and tone out of the setup…. so all in all a great start into the abyss of audiophillia I guess.

 

I can say I am now less inclined to look at a speaker upgrade first :) and look at the other components in a more judicial sequence.

 

That Project Boxit system looked like a little cracker, its a pity interdyn doesn't bring in all the Project goodies :( but it seems as though it may be all to hard to deal with the Aus electricity grid or something?

How have you been finding this unit? I am close to getting it but tossing up between this and the RS.
