Description

The new Pro-Ject CD Box S3 CD player replaces the renowned Box DC from Pro-Ject and retains its exceptionally compact dimensions, making it the smallest audiophile CD player on the market.

PRO-JECT CD BOX S3: FRONT PANEL


The anti-resonant aluminum chassis, less than 6 cm in height, features a sleek black or natural aluminum front panel.

In the center, there's a slot revealing the "Slot In" mechanism. This design eliminates the traditional tray—simply insert the CD and the player accepts it. This approach reduces moving mechanical parts, including a tray mechanism.

Below the slot, four push buttons provide basic functions (play, stop, previous, and next track). Additional functions are accessible via the provided infrared remote control.

Track and time information is displayed on a small 1.54'' LCD screen on the right side of the front panel.

PRO-JECT CD BOX S3: REAR PANEL


The rear panel offers a simple yet sufficient set of connections: an RCA analog output and a coaxial SPDIF digital output.

The Pro-Ject CD Box S3 is powered by an external 9V DC / 200mA power supply.

PRO-JECT CD BOX S3: TECHNICAL DETAILS


Equipped with a Texas Instruments PCM5102A digital-to-analog converter (DAC), operating at 32 bits up to 384 kHz, the Pro-Ject CD Box S3 ensures precise and high-performance audio conversion. It supports switching between IIR and FIR digital filter modes, enhancing signal processing for improved sound reproduction.

The CD mechanism plays CD, CD-R, CD-RW, and Hybrid SACD (CD layer only). All functions are accessible via the included infrared remote control.

PRO-JECT CD BOX S3: REVIEW AND LISTENING EXPERIENCE


Despite its compact size, the Pro-Ject CD Box S3 delivers remarkable audio performance. It fills the room with music effortlessly, displaying impressive dynamics and transparency.

The player achieves a finely balanced sound profile, showcasing excellent musicality and relative neutrality.

Designed explicitly for CD audio playback, the Pro-Ject CD Box S3 meets audiophile standards and integrates seamlessly with Pro-Ject integrated amplifiers.

Its musicality and compact design make it versatile for various audio setups, emphasizing Pro-Ject's commitment to CD playback quality.

Highly recommended for audiophiles seeking compact, high-quality CD playback!

excellement surprenant

on imagine pas qu'un simple petit appareil, a ce prix , delivre une musique si subtile ou rien ne semble manquer . Tout est en finesse dans l'aigu , les mediums sont clairs, beaucoup de presence et les timbres respectés , jusqu'au graves tres profonds . Les contre basses jazz, sont bluffantes . a conseiller aussi pour son petit volume , ideal .

Avis CD Box S3

Tout est OK, conforme à mon attente.
Seule la télécommande est un peu cheap, mais bon, on ne peut pas avoir le beure et l'argent du beure ! Cdlt. JPM.
