A Performance Revolution in a Small Package!
The Pre Box S2 Digital marks a new era for Pro-Ject's S-series components; for the very first time they are using a dual mono configuration with the highest class D/A converters of ESS Sabre, whose flagship DAC chip ensures highest class audio in a small and affordable pack-age. This DAC is capable of high resolution audio up to 32bit 768kHz PCM and DSD512.
The Pre Box S2 Digital is also the very first of Pro-Ject's devices to support hardware MQA unfolding via USB. It’s also the premiere of the manufacturer's proprietary Optimum transient digital filter and the proprietary clock circuitry design. With organic polymer capacitors and thin film miniMELF resistors, Pro-Ject was able to create a tiny device that will blow away even much bigger components for a much higher price. With a total of seven digital filters the sound can be shaped precisely to the listeners liking. The Pre Box S2 Digital is fully remoteable, it can also control the playback software of a computer. You can use Play, Pause, Forward, and Rewind straight with your Pre Box S2 Digital!
