Pro-Ject CD BOX RS
The CD Box RS is a superlative top-loading CD transport that is built around the premium Blue Tiger CD-100 servo system, which is designed to handle 24-bit/192kHz FLAC playback.
The CD Box RS is an elegant device that uses a stylish functional top-loading gravity design and a convenient magnetic clamp. Additional weight at the bottom of the casing draws unwanted vibrations away from the playing surface, while advanced suspension system allows for a playing disc to spin true.
Connection to external sources is achieved either by S/PDIF coax, optical or AES/EBU. Alternatively, for perfect matching with the DAC Box RS or Pre Box RS Digital, an innovative RJ45 I2S/Master Clock connection option is also available.
The CD Box RS is easy to control thanks to the included IR remote and clearly-marked front controls.

Power Box RS Uni 1-Way
The Power Box RS Uni 1-Way is a specially developed linear power supply for your CD Box RS. Designed to significantly enhance the sound quality by improving the audio path.
The Power Box RS consists of a massive toroidal transformer with shielding between the primary and secondary winding, which acts as an isolating
transformer and avoids penetration of interferences from mains power into the audio component.
The built-in transformer has a much higher power reserve
compared to the standard power adapter. It has very low output impedance and in combination with large filtration capability it can easily manage all
By upgrading your standard power supply with the Power Box RS you can benefit from greater and improved sound staging and detailed resolution which all contributes to a far better overall performance from your system.
Available in Black or Silver.
