Pro-Ject Amp Box DS2
Compact stereo power amplifier, 100 watts x 2
Our take on the Pro-Ject Amp Box DS2 by Crutchfield's Eric Angevine
The Pro-Ject Amp Box DS2 doesn't feature any knobs or blinking lights, because it does a straightforward job — it cranks out 100 watts per channel to power a pair of speakers. It's a great match for the Pro-Ject MaiA preamp, which can connect via the stereo RCA preamp inputs on the back of the amp.
There's a stereo RCA output and a12-volt trigger in/out in the amp's vibration-resistant aluminum chassis, so you can daisy-chain and remotely power up several DS2's in a surround sound or multi-zone system.
