Overbuilt to Resist All Vibrations, Features Premium Drive Mechanism: Top-Loading Pro-Ject CD Box RS2 T Transport Excels at Pure, Natural-Sounding CD Playback
A top-loading CD transport with the revered Blue Tiger CD-84 servo board directly integrated into its aluminum body, the Pro-Ject CD Box RS2 T is the master of the Redbook CD domain. Devoid of any built-in converter or preamp electronics, RS2 T ensures nothing interferes with its CD reading capabilities and allows you to select the DAC of your choice. Suspended on a proprietary anti-vibration system, the 6.6-pound RS2 T is also virtually immune to outside vibrations and built like a tank. Indeed, this pure-, natural-, and dynamic-sounding spinner takes stabilization seriously.
RS2 T's suspension system consists of a rigid carbon-fiber plate, carbon-fiber tubes, springs, silicon dampers and screws. The suspension, cover, and turntable platter are all made of 100% carbon fiber. More vibration dampers are mounted on the rigid carbon-fiber chassis, which further contributes to isolating the CD loader from the outside. Additionally, the large aluminum chassis – replete with cogwheels on precision steel axles and steel-lathed platter – is firmly connected to the body of the CD Box RS2 T itself. What's more, the CD Pro-8 transport mechanism arrives perfectly balanced to assure optimal contact between the disc and the drive, achieving smooth rotation and stellar disc reading.
From a technical angle, RS2 T has optical and coaxial S/PDIF outputs ready for your favorite high-end DAC. The AES/EBU digital output over XLR goes one step beyond the quality of optical or coaxial signals while an an I²S + masterclock output over HDMI offers a supreme digital interconnect. It also supplies a direct route to the Pro-Ject Pre Box RS2 preamplifier.
Simple aesthetics, an LCD screen, and an aluminum remote control complete this EISA Award-winning design backed by our 100% Music Direct Guarantee.
"A real ground-up design, the CD Box RS2 T features a customized CD-Pro 8 transport mechanism, supported by an alloy/carbon-fiber chassis and state-of-the-art disc-reading electronics."
