Pro-Ject Speed Box II
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
This certainly makes a difference to the sound quality of your Pro-Ject turntable. Very easy to hook up. The instructions state that the power cord that comes with this replaces the power cord to your turntable, so I did change it out, but I don't think it is necessary. The cable from the turntable to the Speed Box is 14", not 18", but that did not really matter, although the extra 4" would have allowed it to be placed where I originally wanted to. The blue light is extremely bright, especially if your room is dark. You now use the button on the Speed Box to turn the turntable on. Switching speeds is a plus. Turntable is definitely quieter in 33, but there is a little hum in 45. Not noticeable, and I play more 33s so I rarely hear it. I highly recommend this product.
Pros: Increased sound quality. Speed change. Quiets 33 operation.
Cons: Cord still needs to be a little longer. Not as long as stated in the Crutchfiield discription, which is 18'. It is actually 14". Initial price seems high, but really, once you get it, you see why it is costly. I don't see why the light is so bright, but if that is all I can really find to complain about, that says a good deal.
