Hi-Fi Choice, March 2013
Comment of Note:
[Tested as a pair, Amp Box RS & Pre Box RS]
"First impressions are very positive."
"This is a lively and energetic duo that generally imparts a welcome sense of life to most music that they are asked to play."
"The Pro-Jects are able to generate an impressively visceral low end when asked to so that with appropriately burly speakers is felt as much as heard. This considerable low end grunt is in turn possessed of impressive agility and speed which gives the Pro-Ject's a liveliness that is hard not to like."
"The rest of the frequency response is accomplished too."
"If you're seeking a seriously big sound then pairing it to efficient floor standers such as Q Acoustics' excellent 2050is should do the trick, and will generate levels loud enough to lift the roof even with this modestly powered duo."
"The experiment did show that the Pre really is a very neutral bit of kit. This is a Preamp that puts almost nothing of itself into the overall performance and represents one of the least expensive examples of a usably [sic] transparent preamplifier that i have encountered."
"As a pairing, they have enough deviation from absolute neutrality to entertain, but without tipping over into becoming willfully inaccurate."
"If you are looking for a well built, powerful and compact pre and power amplifier package with enough watts on tap to work with a wide variety of speakers, this dinky dynamic duo is well worth seeking out."
