Pro-Ject CD Box DS3 CD Player


Pro-Ject CD Box DS3 CD Player


The CD Box DS3 introduces our completely new DS3 line. We picked the best features of its predecessors and added the Texas Instruments PCM1796 DAC to provide you the perfect CD player with all the features you really need. Easily control the CD player with the buttons on the front, or with the supplied remote control and the high contrast dot-matrix display shows you all relevant information you need to enjoy your favourite CDs.



Laser-focused on high-quality CD playback

The Pro-Ject CD Box DS3 delivers highly accurate playback for your standard audio CDs, thanks to a high-quality Texas Instruments digital-to-analog converter. Its rigid aluminum chassis isolates the sensitive internal disc drive from unwanted vibration. And the player’s compact design takes up relatively little space in your audio cabinet as a bonus. Pro-Ject’s dedication to solid build quality can be seen in the smooth front-loading slot mechanism, intelligent internal servo control, and high-contrast dot-matrix display.

A stereo RCA output on the back panel lets you use the excellent built-in DAC. If you prefer to send pure digital signal to your integrated amp or an outboard component DAC, you can use the Pro-Ject CD Box DS3’s optical digital or coaxial digital output.
