The Pro-Ject Phono Box RS2 incorporates two main features: the phono input and the phono preamp. Most phono units will incorporate an amplifier with volume and tone controls. The RS2 however adds a third feature, called the tonearm. This piece of equipment is designed to improve the frequency response of your phono unit. If you are looking to add a second phono input to your setup, or if you are looking for a phono preamp that will replace your existing sound device, the Pro-Ject Phono Box RS2 should be on your list.
It is important to know which phono preamp to purchase when looking to improve upon the already great sounding audio from your existing phone unit. There are essentially three types of audio input facilities that are available on today’s phono equipment. These are line input, direct input, and dual zone electric output. Each type of input has its strengths and weaknesses. You will need to consider your specific purposes before making a final decision.
A line input phono preamp offers a standard headphone jack for listening to your source as you walk around your home. Many of these devices offer direct monitoring as an option, where each input can be connected to its own headphone so that you can hear each speaker as you listen. This is not a true multitrack style sound device, but if you would like separate sound coming from your ears and from a separate source, this is the way to go. However, if you want to connect a set of speakers to your phone system, this option isn’t very practical.
