If we have to compare the sound quality produced by both, DS2 has the upper hand here. Both models deliver outstanding sound experiences. Bass is better, with more punch and better decay on the notes. The sound stage is outstanding, you can close your eyes and easily visualize the position of each instrument as if they were right in front of you. The sound stage takes on a whole new dimension and invites deep listening. Vocals sound more natural, sibilants have improved and there is more detail on the higher frequencies without any audible harshness or distortion. In other words, it sounds more musical.

This preamp is for those who want to upgrade their turntable setup. Although the DS2 is pricier than the S2, it makes a lot of sense with all the features it provides. The casing of the Project Tube Box S has been designed to become an asset to the unit itself, as it remains sturdy enough to protect internal circuitry against interference and vibration, whilst still remaining aesthetically pleasing. Cages around the valves add that extra level of protection. A Project Connect IT E phono cable is included, providing a high quality shielded cable to connect the Tube Box S to your amplifier. Project Tube Box S Phono Stage Inc Project Connect IT E Phono Cable features It also has a LED light power indicator. The price though is somewhat higher than the Pro-Ject Tube Box S Phono Preamp but sure it is worth buying! Verdict There’s a continuously variable selection starting from 50 to 1000 Ohm on the front of the device. You can use these settings to tweak the load impedance of your preamp.


Is Pro-Ject’s Tube Box S2 the best preamp out there for the money? I can’t say for sure. I haven’t heard all of the competition, or frankly any of it! I’m new at this. However, considering that this is the first preamp comparison I have done in my system that I know and love I thought the Tube Box S2 performed well. Certainly if you’re an analog “newbie” and looking for your first phono preamp, both the price and sound are right. Watch for more content to come from me in the future! The vacuum tubes, together with other essential features (the subsonic filter, gain levels, and mono configurations) all work in sync. Other phono preamps with the lesser or equal features of the Pro-Ject Tube Box S Phono Preamplifier have higher prices. The switchable subsonic filter allows the amplifier to maintain balance and prevent rumbling for tone lower than 20 Hz. What's your opinion on this? What would any of those 2 options add to the sound? Never had another Phono Pre Amp than the Alva Solo. Would the sound have a different color? Would the Pro Ject (more than twice the price of my current preamp) add any new sonic layers? punch? warmth? The valves are replaceable. Replacement parts are available in online stores and in other audiovisual component stores.

Pro-Ject Tube Box S2 and DS2 are both outstanding phono preamps. DS2 provides plenty of features that allow you to tailor the sound experience to your liking. The product has the same minimalistic, signature design of the brand. The unique thing about DS2 is that it offers connection for two turntables or two tonearms on the same turntable. Besides that, the DS2 model provides several features that you can’t find in the S2. While some people can live without those features, others prefer having them to get the best sound experience.Tube Box DS2 provides two sets of gold-plated RCA inputs and outputs. This offers connections to two turntables simultaneously or two selectable line outputs. The biggest advantage of owning the S2 model is how easy it is to switch tubes. All you need to do is to unscrew the protective housing and just wiggle out the tubes, and that’s it.
