Description

The headphone amplifier Pro-Ject Head Box DS2 B addresses the growing market of high-fidelity headphones, where despite the excellence of modern headphone designs, the amplifiers that typically drive them are often lacking.

PRO-JECT HEAD BOX DS2 B HEADPHONE AMPLIFIER: FRONT PANEL

The front panel features a 6.35 mm stereo jack headphone output and a 4-pin XLR balanced output, ensuring optimal signal transmission for high-end headphones. A large potentiometer centrally controls the volume, with LEDs on the right indicating selected gain settings and input sources.

PRO-JECT HEAD BOX DS2 B HEADPHONE AMPLIFIER: CONNECTIONS

At the rear, the unit offers two analog inputs via RCA and XLR, along with analog loop outputs available in both RCA and XLR formats.

PRO-JECT HEAD BOX DS2 B HEADPHONE AMPLIFIER: TECHNICAL DETAILS

The new Pro-Ject Head Box DS2 B headphone amplifier effortlessly powers any dynamic headphones, delivering 1100 mW of power into 33 ohms. It features three different current settings to accommodate various headphone types and four gain settings tailored for both high-impedance headphones and sensitive in-ear monitors. The fully balanced dual-mono design includes a phase inverter to convert unbalanced signals to balanced directly at the amplifier input.

Power management is handled by the Texas Instruments TPA6120A2 chip, renowned for its excellent sound quality with virtually inaudible background noise. Both front outputs can be used simultaneously.

PRO-JECT HEAD BOX DS2 B HEADPHONE AMPLIFIER: LISTENING EXPERIENCE

The Pro-Ject Head Box DS2 B excels with demanding dynamic headphones and performs exceptionally well with in-ear monitors. Pro-Ject's signature sound across their products often evokes a "Tube-like" listening experience, despite using solid-state components exclusively.

This headphone amplifier is no exception, offering a richness akin to tube amplifiers but with the clarity and control of solid-state technology. It provides ample power and dynamic impact, enhancing the spatial depth and overall soundstage.

Its tonal balance and versatility allow for extended listening sessions without auditory fatigue, maintaining clarity and detail throughout the frequency spectrum. The bass is notably dynamic and articulate, showcasing controlled speaker diaphragms.

At its price point, the Pro-Ject Head Box DS2 B stands virtually unchallenged, combining musicality with a comprehensive array of symmetrical and asymmetrical inputs and outputs, making it a standout product.
