Project Phono Box RS2 Balanced Phono Pre-Amp

The RS2 provides the two things you want most in a phono pre-amp; sound quality and versatile adjustability.

Why? Cartridges are the fine jewelry of audio: typically handmade by skilled artisans, often with materials found in jewelry stores. But they're not always perfect, and set up isn't always ideal, so 

RS2 is not the result of a single designer's vision but, rather, a collective effort, with input from our manufacturing and electrical engineering team in Slovakia, the design team in Austria, and even feedback from the international distributors.


"Madeleine Peyroux's rendition of Leonard Cohen's "Dance Me to the End of Love," on her reissued Careless Love album (Mobile Fidelity MFSL 1-284), makes me want to foxtrot every time I hear it, so clear and tight is its rhythm section. Adjusting the impedance to about halfway between the 10 and 200 ohms settings delivered some pleasant surprises: I heard a trill I hadn't heard before. At 400 ohms, the instruments seemed better separated, with more air and expansion between them. The presentation felt more grounded and solid with better dimensionality, yet freed up with lively energy"
