Pro-Ject Phono Box Ultra 500 Phono Preamplifier
Phono Box ultra 500 is like no other phono preamplifier in its segment. The “500“ in the name as well as the general availability, worldwide limited to 500 pieces, celebrate the 500,000th Phono Box that Pro-Ject shipped in early 2018. Pro-Ject took this milestone as an occasion to create a one-of-a-kind phono preamplifier: The polished chrome surface outshines every competitor in this price segment and offers undeniable aesthetics. Underneath this surface they used a copper body, which is known to protect the delicate phono signal against high frequency interference. The internal design has been reworked, now offering a fully discrete, OpAmp-less, design, which produces an incredibly harmonious sound. On top of leaving out operational amplifiers Pro-Ject also decided to use polystyrene capacitors, known amongst audiophiles as the holy grail of capacitors for phono preamplifiers.
