The new Pro-Ject Speed Box S2 speed controller replaces the old and famous Speed Box S. It nevertheless has the same functions and performances. It is made for entry level turntables and midrange turntables that have a 16V AC synchronous motor.
It comes in a non magnetic anodized aluminium casing. The front panel is also in aluminium. It has a pulse switch which enables you to choose the speed (33 RPM or 45 RPM) as well as two LEDs which correspond to the speed selection.
Its primary function is to enable (by change in frequency) to change the speed of the motor and, in consequence, go from 33 RPM to 45 RPM without having to manually change the belt from one pulley to another (when you do not need to raise the platter!). This is very practical for those who have a collection of singles! However, the Pro-Ject Speed Box S2 speed controller has another function. It has a quartz and microprocessor control that ensure a formidable stability of the rotation of the motor. Its precision of 0,001% translates to a speed stability multiplied by 5. It is important to take into account that it is possible to obtain a rotation at 78 RPM by adapting a specific pulley and by selecting 45 RPM.
It is powered by an external power supply in direct current (DC) of 18 V. We connected it to a Pro-Ject 1-Xpression III turntable and a 2nd generation Pro-Ject 2-Xperience turntable. The results were very convincing. The gain in musicality obtained is undebatable and its user-friendliness make it necessary!
It is advised to use the Pro-Ject Speed Box S2 speed controller with Pro-Ject turntables (Debut 3, Essential 1, Genie 1.3, XPression 1, II and III, RPM 4 et RPM 5, Xperience) and Music Hall turntables (Music Hall 2.2, Music Hall 5.1, Music Hall 7.1Ö).
CAUTION: the speed box 1,2, and S are not compatible with DC motors: Debut Carbon, Debut Carbon Esprit, Debut Carbon USB, 1Xpression carbon, RPM1 Carbon, RPM3 Carbon, 2Xperience DC, 6Perspex Acryl DC, etc.$179.00Speed Box S2Buy Now
Pro-Ject Audio Systems sticks to a simple philosophy: easy to use equipment with high quality sound at astonishing value. Pro-Ject turntables are built sleek and durable, offering modern style and excellent sound for the casual audiophile, and this value extends to dollars and cents: Pro-Jectís products are as no-frills as their philosophy.
Founded in 1990 by Austrian Heinz Lichtenegger, Pro-Ject manufactures a wide range of turntables--often quoted as ideal entry-level models--and audio equipment inside their two European plants.
The Pro-Ject Debut Carbon DC turntable line features one-piece carbon tonearms, weighted platters, magnetic cartridges and a satisfying range of color. Though this turntable has seen many improvements over the years, such as an increased platter diameter, extra touches such as thick O-rings for more stability, pre-fitted cartridges, and a high-gloss plinth that competes with high-end models for style, the price has remained firmly affordable.
The Debut Carbon Esprit SB DC Pro-Ject turntable steps it up a notch on all counts. An acrylic platter further reduces rumble, the synchronous AC motor is screwed to the plinth through two rubber pads for a more rigid mounting, and for style nothing compares at this price point for the piano gloss finishes.
While true audiophiles might prefer to stick to analogue whenever they can, bringing your turntable and vinyl on the road with you isnít a great option. Take the music with you anyway through Pro-Jectís Record Box E, which makes it possible to transfer your favorite vinyl to digital all on your own, and itís as easy to use as the rest of their offerings. The Phono Box from Pro-Ject is an equally flexible piece for interfacing turntable to preamplifier, integrated amplifier, or receiver. Like all of Pro-Jectís offerings, both boxes stay true to trademark streamlined visual appeal and incredible piece value.
