Phono Box S: audiophile, versatile & affordable!
This new phono preamplifier offers unrivalled performance and unique flexibilty, which never before was available at this price!
Sonic quality of Phono Box S is extremely impressive, a big improvement and a perfect upgrade for most analogue hifi system.
With a wide range of setting parameters, it can meet the needs of almost any phono cartridge on the market. A switchable subsonic filter prevents your amplifier and speakers of ultra low rumble below 20Hz. Carefully selected amplifier modules and audiophile-grade polypropylene capacitors make it possible to enjoy your valuable vinyl collection like never before
• Dual mono configuration
• Audiophile-grade amplification modules
• Audiophile-grade polypropylene WIMA capacitors
• Precise RIAA equalisation
• Switchable Subsonic filter –12dB @ 20Hz
• Switchable input impedance/capacitance
• 4 adjustable gain levels
• DC power supply (< 1 watt standby power)
The biggest contributor to better sound quality is your stylus (needle). Higher quality styli track the grooves of the record with greater accuracy and pick more information from it, in turn offering better dynamic range. And what all that means – in plain English, of course – is you get sweeter and sweeter tunes with better and better needles, so don’t be expecting no wonders from a cheapy.
Now, if you wrap your smackers ‘round Pro-Ject’s DC Debut Carbon turntable with the Ortofon 2M Red you’ll notice it’s a hundred and ninety bucks worth of stylus upgrade for a fraction of the price. Yup, we’re just throwing away money here. But, wait, because there’s a good reason for this. Sure, you can get a Debut Carbon with the stock styli and it’ll be really nice. And, sure, for a lot of first-timers really nice is, well, a really nice place to start.
We’re talking records here, guys. Vinyl bloody records – LPs, 33s, shiny black wax poured from the golden chalice of the music gods, themselves. Nobody wants nice. If we wanted nice we’d’ve kept our CDs. We want ball-tearing, bad arse tunage (insert Jack Black death metal head bashing here). We want deep luscious baselines, extension in our midrange, and a Smith’s crinkle cut kind of crispness from our highs. You didn’t come to the promised land of vinyl to f#$k around. You wanted better sound quality, and you’re damn well gonna get it with a 2M Red.
This is not just the highest selling turntable in the world, this is the highest selling turntable in the world with a kickass 2M Red on it. So forking out a few extra dollars now is going to give you a lot bigger sound in the long run. Drop into Fitzroy to pick one up direct or buy here online. Your ears will thank you. Your mum will thank you. Sh!t, even Ozzy will thank you.
Powered speakers are all the rage these days. With the influx of high density housing our living space has significantly reduced. But just cause you’re sacrificing space doesn’t mean you need to sacrifice your sound quality, too. The biggest problem getting big sound from active speakers is efficiency. A small bookshelf housing isn’t a whole lot of room for a big juicy amplifier. Even some of the smallest bookshelf speakers from certain manufactures need a whole lot of power to give them adequate detail. But not Klipsch. This is where Kilipsch come into their own. Efficiency has been Klipsch’s M.O for the last 70 years, and what this means is they don’t need a big, powerful amplifier to get a whole lot zip out of their bookshelf speakers. So while the amplifier in the R-15s is small, the speakers themselves honk. Easily one of the best – if not the best on the market.
Now, when you add an inbuilt phono stage, optical inputs for your television, bluetooth, and an optional sub out (for all those bass heads out there), you get a whole lot of hifi for very little equipment. And it’s why these bad boys are quickly becoming one of our most popular home hifi solutions. They do it all. And to top it off they pack a whole heap of punch in the audio department. You wedge a serious little turntable between these two killer speakers, like the DC Debut Carbon with 2M Red, and the neighbours’ll be wondering where you’ve hidden the hifi rack and towers. Yes, Klipsch have been pissing off the neighbours since 1946 and there’s no signs of them slowing down. They’re not going to let a little thing (pardon the pun) like high density housing stand between them and banging out some hefty tunes. So if you’re strapped for space, or you simply like the streamlined look of two black speakers and a jet black table, this is the package for you.

The Classic offers classic look and innovative high-end technology
This turntable makes use of traditional frame design which was established by the famous turntable manufacturers of the 50's and 60's. It uses a compact simple and elegant form factor. The Classic incorporates a combination of approved belt drive design using a low noise AC motor with an ultra precision frequency DC-driven AC generator (like Speed Box) for ultimate speed stability. Advanced technology is used for decoupling and the completely new designed tonearm.
• Belt drive with manual speed control 33/45 rpm
• Height adjustable decoupling feet
• Precision balanced TPE*-damped aluminium-platter / felt mat
• Metal/MDF sandwich chassis floating on TPE* suspension
• 9” carbon/aluminium tonearm with MM & MC capability
• Japanese ball bearing (base of tonearm)
• Integrated central vertical cable outlet for unhindered arm movement
• Ultra low friction Zircon pin-point cardan bearings (top & side)
• Azimuth and VTA fully adjustable
• TPE damped counterweight
• Optionally available with 2M Silver phono cartridge
• Classic wooden chassis in 3 matt finishes (walnut, rosenut, eucalyptus)
• Dustcover included
*)TPE is a family of modern damping materials which can be tuned to damp resonances at specific frequencies. So any TPE we use is different and specially designed for the material and frequency range it should damp!
High quality recording of analogue media on computers!
Our aim was to design a product which is very flexible and allows converting precious vinyl records or analogue tapes to computer. This digital copy acts as an indestructible back up and archive of valuable and beloved audio collections and extends lifetime of rarity records and tapes.
Storing music in computer offers the possibility of removing clicks, eliminating noise from old and wearing recordings. Data from computer can be burned on CD and also can be used in cars and with mobile devices as smartphones, tablets etc.
A front-sided input selector allows to select desired inputs: Phono or Line. Signal from selected input is present on analogue output. This function allows to connect AD Box S2 Phono permanently in an HiFi system, use it as standard phono preamplifier and in case of need you can convert your records to digital data, stored in your computer. Record level adjustment is extremely helpful, because signal source scans significantly vary in level of their output voltage. Such big differences in voltage level can easily overload input of an A/D converter what is hearable as a distortion.
On the other hand, if the AD Box S2 Phono converter is not fed with proper level of the signal, the sound will loose resolution. This is the reason why level of the signal on ADC input must be set carefully. Due to its outstanding audio quality and valuable features, AD Box S2 Phono is the perfect partner for recording of analogue sources.
The Acryl It E is made from acrylic and features a satin finished surface. It's super easy to upgrade - Just exchange your pre-existing platter for the Acryl It E. Unlike many platters, where you will need to place a felt met between record and platter to damp resonance, you can put your record directly on the acrylic surface, with nothing in-between. Any unwanted vibrations in your record are transferred to the platter where they dissipate. Very smart!
