Pro-Ject CD Box RS2 T

Pro-Ject

Transport Of Delight

  • The arrival of these new components shows just how diversified the Box Design range has become. For each kind of component, from phono stages to CD players and DACs, there’s a series of models at different levels. It can make for a somewhat confusing read when you have the entire catalogue before you, and while of course you can mix and match across the various series, the devil is in the detail when identifying at which level a product sits.

Around The Clock

  • But the weapon of choice when using the CD Box RS2 T in tandem with the Pre Box RS2 Digital will be its HDMI output, which carries the digital signal in I2S format along with a separate Masterclock feed. In theory, at least, this synchronising clock feed should eliminate many of the problems inherent in conventional digital connections.

Dual Mono DACs

  • Under the bonnet, Pro-Ject has levered-in a pair of ESS Sabre ESS9038 DACs in dual mono configuration, alongside seven selectable digital filters, MQA decoding plus the option of two analogue filters, operating above 25kHz or 120kHz. The DAC offers switchable upsampling to 384/352.8kHz: you can leave it off, only upsample MQA files or upsample everything, and also turn reclocking on or off, which may be advantageous with files at higher sampling rates. Finally you can switch between the company’s bespoke solid-state and triode valve output stages.

Pro-Ject has always been making products and investments which are not particularly mainstream. As everybody was jumping onto the CD bandwagon, we were starting with turntables! Now as everybody moves into streaming, we are investing in a new revolutionary CD-player.
We believe in listening to music consciously and also that there are many people who deeply share this sentiment with us. Similar to analogue records, people want to have the physical medium in hand. And that?s also true for the CD! Most of us are still going to put most of their CD?s onto a hard disc drive or store them in the basement, as they did with their analogue records. But many want to keep their best CD?s and for this they want to have a proper CD-player. Very good in quality, but not too crazy expensive.
