Description

The Pro-Ject CD Box RS2 T is strictly a CD transport (Drive) and does not include a built-in digital-to-analog converter (DAC).

PRO-JECT CD BOX RS2 T: FRONT PANEL AND INTERNAL CIRCUIT


The anti-resonant aluminum chassis features a 3mm thick front panel available in black or natural aluminum finish.

At the center of the front panel, there is a large LCD screen displaying track information, track time, and album details. To the right, there are 4 push buttons for basic functions (play, stop, previous track, and next track). Additional functions are accessible via the provided infrared remote control.

Loading CDs is done from the top of the unit by opening a substantial aluminum cover. Inside, it houses a specific audio mechanism developed in collaboration with Philips and overseen by CD player expert, Mr. Michael Jirousek.

The Pro-Ject CD Box RS2 T is built around the excellent CD StreamUnlimited CD-Pro 8 mechanism, coupled with CD-84 servo control. The entire mechanism is integrated into an aluminum body suspended by an exclusive anti-vibration system that combines siltent blocks and carbon. This setup minimizes external vibration levels. The CD is held in place magnetically on the drive by a precisely machined aluminum Clamp, ensuring perfect balance and optimal contact for smooth rotation and flawless playback.

PRO-JECT CD BOX RS2 T: REAR PANEL


The rear panel of this CD transport features digital connectivity options: an RCA SPDIF output, an optical Toslink output, and an AES/EBU XLR male output. Additionally, it includes an I²S + Masterclock output via HDMI.

This standard offers seamless digital interconnection and serves as an ideal solution to bypass inherent limitations found in other forms of digital audio connections. It makes the CD Box RS2 T an ideal drive for the Pro-Ject DAC Box RS2.

PRO-JECT CD BOX RS2 T: TECHNICAL DETAILS


Unlike DVD or Blu-ray players, dedicated CD players excel in stereo audio CD playback. The CD Box RS2 T is designed solely as a pure CD transport, transmitting Red Book standard digital signals to an external digital-to-analog converter (DAC).

Its servo system ensures real-time scanning with very low Jitter.

It has been optimized to pair with the Pro-Ject DAC Box RS2. However, with any high-quality external DAC, the Pro-Ject CD Box RS2 T delivers remarkable audio reproduction rarely achieved in this price range.

The Pro-Ject CD Box RS2 T is an uncompromising device that extracts CD information without loss or distortion. It is tailored for discerning users equipped with an excellent digital-to-analog converter (DAC).

Highly recommended!

Superb player

Prend le son du cd à un niveau différent. Beaucoup de détails, d'espace et une scène sonore profonde. Vaut le prix et l'emporte toujours sur le vinyle.
