Pro-Ject Pre Box SE Preamp

A precursor that also only approximate so sounds like the Pro-Ject Pre box SE (325 euros) sounds, should be at least difficult to find for around 300 euros.

Sure that she must give no output, the pre box SE has already a considerable, fist alternator, and he serves not only to the supply of the fine resolution front display. The warmth that emits the
Bobx after some hours of operation, stems mainly from the two output buffers, heatsink-crowned ICs called LT1010, which give a very low output impedance of 4 Ohms the pre box SE – long, also highly capacitive cable are thus just as uncritical as the drive of several parallel amplifiers.

Level control, is controllable in reproducible 1 dB steps, together with the input selector in a combined chip, which costs significantly less than a potentiometer switch combination, aurally but apparently not hurt.

A precursor that also just nearly similar sounds, should be at least difficult to find for around 300 euros. The pre box SE does exactly what it should: the music goes as far as possible out of the way, and the few impressions, which leaves them in the signal, listen more to gain as after loss. The representation differs from the completely neutral ideal rather through greater presence and a slight emphasis on rhythmic corners and edges. That in the deepest bass energy degrading something, heard only in big chains – rather not the typical work place for the box.

A nice synergy arose in the bass if the pre box SE Mono played together with her sister, power amplifier amp box SE and especially with their amp box SE of version of the single-channel.
