The digital aspect of the Phono Box DS2 USB gives hi-fi enthusiasts the opportunity to record their vinyl in true high-end quality. Many turntables have built-in phono stages with USB outputs, which are often of inferior quality and restrict the ability to make a good digital file. The Phono Box DS2 USB uses a very low-noise and jitter-free Analogue-Digital Converter (ADC) to record via USB or Optical up-to 24-bit/192kHz PCM or DSD 128 (USB only). So now, by connecting a high-quality turntable and cartridge to the Phono Box DS2 USB, you can begin to make true audiophile recordings from your record player.
The internal layout of the Phono Box DS2 USB uses high-quality components in dual-mono configuration and sophisticated electrical designs, including ultra-linear RIAA equalisation, to achieve the superior sound quality. As well as MM / MC compatibility, you can further tweak the capacitance, gain and impedance to get the best sound from your turntable and cartridge.
Operation of the Phono Box DS2 USB is effortlessly simple, with all controls clearly marked on the front-plate. The two phono inputs allow for multiple turntables or tonearms to be connected to the phono stage with ease, and the additional Line input allows for any other analogue device to benefit from the device’s recording abilities. The gold-plated RCA output ensures an easy connection to an external hi-fi system, and the optical output also offers the option to connect a turntable into a high-end digital audio system.
The Phono Box DS2 USB is one of the most accomplished multi-purpose phono stages available today, acting not only as a high-quality phono stage but also a hi-fi quality ADC and recording device.
