Pro-Ject Unveils Power Box RS2 Power Supply Upgrade For Turntables, Pre-Amps
High-performance turntable brand Pro-Ject USA introduced Tuesday the Power Box RS2 Phono power supply upgrade for turntables and phono preamps.
Developed by Austria’s Pro-Ject Audio Systems, the Power Box RS2 is billed as a clear power supply upgrade for turntables and phono preamps that will produce clear sonic harmony and power distribution.
The Power Box RS2 Phono’s built-in transformer has a much higher power reserve compared to a standard power adapter and is able to produce low output impedance and large filtration capability.
A linear power supply consists of a massive toroidal transformer that nearly eliminates any interference. The company explained that with a linear power supply, background noise reduced and sound-staging is improved, for enhanced detail resolution.
Key features of the Pro-Ject RS2 Phono include the following:
• All-in-one power supply for your phono setup
• Powers any Pro-Ject 15V DC turntable
• Powers any Pro-Ject phono stage (18-20V)
• Cleanest power via non-switching power supply
• Soft-start system avoids current inrush
• Audio-focused toroidal transformer
• Mains-isolating transformer with copper foil shield
• Secondary voltage rectification with precise regulation
• High filtration capacity (10.000μF)
• Low ESR capacitors
• Low-noise components with surge protection
The Power Box RS2 Phono ($649 suggested retail price) is made in Europe and will be available beginning in October in a choice of black or silver aluminum housings through Fine Sounds Americas dealers. The Power Box RS2 Phono is compatible with all of Pro-Ject’s current phono boxes (18-20V) and any turntable with a 15V DC input.
Pro-Ject Audio Systems was founded by one of Austrian distributor, Heinz Lichtenegger, in early 1991. The company is known for developing high-end sound at reasonable prices through the use of quality electronic components and advanced engineering.
