Picture Sunday – Week Four – Pro-Jection

Easy to navigate as their website is, Pro-Ject’s vanilla advertising images left me squinting. And then Pre Box RS Digital arrived.

It is handsome, if understated. It is clearly, if profusely, labelled. Its seems are tight, its controls evenly spaced in utilitarian arrays. Speaking of arrays, it can connect to 7 S/PDIF inputs, USB, Ethernet, and analogue over RCAs.

No-nonsense approaches to digital audio design are few and far between. No nonsense one-box integrated solutions like the Pre Box RS Digital are a dying breed. Now, I have no idea how the RS Digital performs, sounds, or handles various headphones, let alone downstream power amps.

I just came back from Fujiya Avic’s Spring headphone show. I’m tired. I’m sweaty. But I’m ready to hook this bad boy up, to my versatile Lynx HILO, to my computer, my TV, and sundry portable devices. Because, damn, does it look good.

Back before he became the main photographer for bunches of audio magazines and stuff, Nathan was fiddling with pretty cool audio gear all day long at TouchMyApps. He loves Depeche Mode, trance, colonial hip-hop, and raisins. Sometimes, he gets to listening. Sometimes, he gets to shooting. Usually he's got a smile on his face. Always, he's got a whisky in his prehensile grip.

        Did I screw up the link? Sometimes a man just can’t bother with Word Press. And… a man like me that doesn’t canvass these events shouldn’t/can’t press upon his own ‘coverage’ upon the large readership of HFN.

      Yeah, saw it couple of days back. Did you get a chance to talk to the guy with the 7 amplifiers stacked to a DAP? No matter what one says the clipping, THD and the hiss caused by 7 amp stages will be quite audible in a quite room. Fortunately the guy uses it while travelling in the Subway, that to using an open back headphone. With that money he could have bought a TOTL Electrostat and Planar Mangetic/Dynamic setup.

    Yeah, I wish he’d do that on HFN too 🙂
