The phono stage amplifies the very tiny signal (between a few tens of microvolts and a few millivolts) from the phono cartridge to a line-level (about one volt) signal. This line-level signal can then drive a line-stage preamplifier, just as any other source component would.

Aesthetix Saturn Eclipse Series: Rhea Eclipse Phono Stage
Aesthetix Saturn Eclipse Series:  Rhea Eclipse Phono Stage
RHEA ECLIPSE

First phase: Internal changes to the Rhea start with .22uF / 600v Stealth coupling capacitors used between the second and third gain stages, and the third gain stage and output stage. Eight total of these exotic capacitors are used.

There are four 2uF / 400v coupling capacitors used in each channel of the output stage of the Rhea. In the Eclipse version, these are replaced with Stealth copper foil 4uF/400v, improving low frequency response. This capacitor is also used between the first and second gain stages.

Aesthetix Saturn Signature Series: Rhea Signature Phono Stage
Aesthetix Saturn Signature Series:  Rhea Signature Phono Stage
RHEA SIGNATURE

The Aesthetix Rhea Signature version uses custom-made inter-stage Teflon hybrid coupling capacitors, replacing the polypropylene units, between the 2nd and 3rd, and 3rd and 4th, gain stages (4 total per channel). The change in these capacitors results in higher resolution, extension, less grain and more air. The 2uF coupling capacitor between the 1st and 2nd gain stages is replaced with a 4uF Dynamicap by Peter Moncrief (1 per channel). This change removes grain and provides more openness, while also increasing bass dynamics and slam. The 2uF output coupling capacitors (4 per channel) are also replaced with 4uF Dynamicaps. This change provides more drive, bass extension, resolution and dynamics while also reducing grain. Highly specialized adjustable air-core capacitors, used primarily in the radio-frequency realm, are installed and adjusted to "tweek" each unit to a rigid standard. The five rubber feet are replaced with Harmonic Resolutions Systems' Nimbus Couplers specially made for Aesthetix (Earlier Signature Saturn pieces did not incorporate this, please contact Aesthetix for this free upgrade if you have an earlier Signature piece without the Nimbus Couplers). This change results in a lower noise floor and more air and space. The cost of these specialized parts alone is about 1/4 the manufacturing cost of a brand new unit! Any tubes that can be bettered by our special stock of graded and matched tubes are replaced. Any other improvements needed to make the unit current are installed, including software updates, etc. A new lens with "SIGNATURE" stenciled is installed. Each Signature unit undergoes rigorous test procedures and listening.

Pre Box DS2 Digital

The Pre Box DS2 Digital is the ultimate system hub. This stylish, compact pre-amplifier boasts ultimate flexibility thanks to its built-in phono stage, 32-bit DSD-capable DAC, Bluetooth receiver and separate headphone amplifier.

Based around the same AK4490 D/A converter as the new DAC Box DS2 Ultra, the Pre Box DS2 Digital accommodates USB, Optical and Coaxial inputs for playback of high resolution music files up-to 32-bit /768 kHz PCM and DSD256 (DoP). The AK4490 from Asahi Kasei Microdevices is a high-end converter with five digital filters built-in for further tailoring of the sound, and all PCM signals are up-sampled to 768kHz for optimal fidelity and minimal signal loss. Similarly, the AK4137EQ sample-rate converter features three “sound modes” for ultimate personalisation.

S2-Line

The Speed Box S2 offers a functional and convenient upgrade for many Pro-Ject turntables with a 16V AC motor that do not already have built-in speed control.

The Speed Box S2 acts as an AC generator for the turntable, replacing the fluctuant supply from a normal 16V power supply and regulating it. The result is a clean power signal that allows the motor to perform optimally. The added convenience is that the Speed Box S2 can shift frequency, for easy changing between 33 and 45RPM at the push of a button.

S2 Line

The Phono Box S2 Ultra is like no other phono stage available today. Punching well above its weight for sound quality, it replaces the popular Phono Box DS and DS+ models in the Pro-Ject range, and still manages to boast an array of features for easy pairing with any modern cartridge.

The Phono Box S2 Ultra utilises a fully discrete electronic layout without the use of operational amplifiers (op-amps). Op-amps are commonly used in phono stages to increase the quiet sound from a pick-up cartridge to a level that modern amplifiers can use. However, by shifting away from that technology, Pro-Ject are able to produce a device with a warm, harmonious sound. In addition, the use of polystyrene capacitors makes the Phono Box S2 Ultra almost unique on the market, as such components are normally reserved for far more expensive products. Elsewhere, the split RIAA equalisation circuit enables pin-point accuracy of the RIAA curve and the introduction of a subsonic filter ensures your music sounds right in any environment.
