A natural-sounding phono preamp
Pro-Ject describes the sound of the Tube Box S phono stage as "tubey," which is their way of saying that it's warm, dynamic and transparent — dependable vacuum tube qualities audiophiles have treasured for decades. And tube preamps like this one are also excellent at eliminating unwanted noise, so the music on your vinyl LPs will emerge from a quiet background.
It features adjustable input capacitance settings for moving magnet and moving coil cartridges, plus gain-setting options to match your cartridge to your system. A switchable subsonic filter protects your amplifier and speakers from power-wasting low-frequency rumble below 20 Hz.

Tube Phono Preamp: The Pro-Ject Audio Systems Tube Box S for MM and MC is a very high-quality phono cartridge preamplifier. It utilizes dual-mono architecture with two double triode tubes (12AX7A -ECC83) for optimum channel separation. This unit produces a lively and powerful performance with convincing sound staging and emotional presentation.
MM/MC Compatible: The Pro-Ject Tube Box S phono preamplifier offers amplifications and RIAA equalization for MM and MC cartridges. Input Gain, Capacitance, and Impedance can be adjust from dip-switch found on the bottom of the phono preamplifier.
- Input Gain: Input Gain can be adjusted to 41dB, 51dB and 61dB for MM or MC cartridges.
- Input Capacitance: Input Capacitance can set to 50pF, 150pF, 270pF, and 370pF for MM and MC cartridges.
- Input Impedance: Input Impedance can be set to 10O, 100O, 1000O, and 2000O for MC cartridges only. There is also a 47000O setting for MM cartridges only.
Subsonic Filter: The Subsonic filter (-12dB/octave @ 20Hz) helps to reduce low-frequency rumble and wasted amplifier power. The Subsonic filter dip-switch is located on the bottom of the phono preamp.
Gold-Plated RCA Connections: The Pro-Ject Box S is equipped with a pair of gold-plated RCA connections for the output stage and input stage. The gold-plate RCA connectors offer corrosion-free signal transfer.
Power Requirements: The Pro-Ject Tube Box S turntable preamplifier operates off of standard household current using the included external power supply. The outboard power supply helps reduce noise and interference.
- Input: 100-240V~50/60Hz, 0.4A
- Output: 18V AC, 1.0A.
Metal Case: The phono preamplifier features a metal case that shields the electronics from vibration and electromagnetic interference.
