Pro-Ject DAC Box FL


Out of stock

  • The DAC Box FL (FL stands for “filterless”) is Pro-Ject?s first full-digital source product and the first of a whole digital concept.
  • It also time that we differentiate between our product lines:
  • PRO-JECT AUDIO is the home of quality best-buy analogue audio, and
  • BOX DESIGN by Pro-Ject is the new status for low cost, high end, hi fi electronics.
  • Both brands have one common goal: To bring you lifelike music reproduction at the lowest cost, through simplification and intelligent compromises per purpose. The DAC Box FL is a typical example, proving you can achieve better sound by simplification.
  • Today the market is hit by many high-bit, high-oversampling designs, with the aim to reduce distortion and to extend the frequency response. The result is often a super clear “flat” sound,
  • which misses the live emotional feeling of music.
  • We forget often, that the original CD format is 16-bit, 44.1kHz with music data up to 20kHz, no higher. The problem is that only a few designs and transports can reproduce the original 16-bit word. Too many errors are happening already before it comes to the conversion.

This product is currently out of stock and unavailable.

Simplicity is often the best way in audio. Short signal paths and minimal controls are usually seen as prerequisites for top-class sound. Pro-ject has taken this approach to heart with its latest DAC, the DAC Box FL.

This compact unit is all about minimalism. There’s no power switch or light, and you’ll look in vain for an input selector for the co-ax and optical input, too. The only option is to use one at a time.
