Suitable for both MM and MC cartridges, the Project Phono Box offers great value and flexibility.

Low noise for high quality sound

Using specially selected low-noise ICs, the Pro-Ject Phono Box gives an excellent signal to noise ratio. This means you hear more detail from the music and less background noise. For excellent sound staging, the Phono Box also uses dual-mono circuitry. Usually only found in much more expensive amplifiers, this type of circuitry gives the purest balance of sound possible. Another feature helping to reduce the possibility of interference is the outboard power supply. By mounting this in the plug, the chances of electrical interference within the phono stage are greatly reduced.

Metal casing
A full metal casing ensures the delicate electronics within are shielded from both mechanical and electrical interference. The casing's rounded edges not only improve the aesthetics but also add rigidity to the box, further minimising sonic distortion. As a final audiophile touch, all the RCA phono sockets are gold-plated.

A phono stage that's been built to last and still provide great value for money; the Pro-Ject Phono Box offers the ideal solution.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Definitely improved quality Wasn’t sure I would tell the difference from a basic preamp but it’s improved the sound. Vinyl sounds warmer

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Phono. Preamp. I bought this to replace an earlier pre amp which had failed. The Pro Ject MM/MC box was easily installed and set to MC operation. It produces excellent sound from my old Technics SL10 turntable with excellent base and transients. There is no audible hum after grounding the turntable to the Pro Ject box. Very pleased with the pre amp performance and build quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Value pre-amp. I bought this to allow me to plug a refurbished Beogram 2000 into a chap Cambridge Audio amp that did not have a pre-amp. I am really happy with it there is no noise and hum. I had to improvise turning the original 5-pin DIN connector into Phono plugs and I am really happy with the result. It has a nice sturdy metal case. To me the RIAA EQ and sound guality are good, I am a qualified audio engineer, but I don't regard myself as having golden ears. All in all excellent value for mony

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value Bought this so I could play my turntable through a Bose Wave player. So glad I did! Easy to set up. Great sound and a brilliant way to get reacquainted with my 70’s and 80’s vinyl! Thanks for the great advice Richer Sounds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Pre-Amp I bought this pre-amp for my project debut III turntable. I was between buying an expensive pre-amp or a cheap one. After speaking with the staff at RS, they recommended the pro-ject Phono. Set up was easy, build quality is excellent, and even comes with high quality phono leads. Sound quality is really good and a huge improvement to my Technics SU-X502 amp. All round, perfect value and fantastic performance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use, good sound at the price This was for my son, who recently got a turntable but no phono stage on his amp. Easy to use, this is as transparent and clear as could be expected at the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A superb upgrade step for my system ! OK, this luddite is still using the separates system bought in the mid 80's, and it still performs well, with warm rich delivery. I spent some time chatting to the team in the Bournemouth store and decided on a phased upgrade path - phono stage pre-amp, cartridge later, then speakers. I am gobsmacked at the improvement from this pre-amp, which is making me wonder how I've been satisfied for the past 35 years. Fantastic value from a modest investment :-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound, and very tidy. I bought this to connect my turntable to my new Sonos speaker. Sounds great, tucks away neatly, and worked perfectly straight out of the box.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Project Phono Box Bought this on the advise of the team at Richer Sounds to be able to use through our sonos system. Well worth the extra money for a much improved base sound.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Denon turntable back in action Wanted to get my 35 year old superb Denon turntable back in operation in my man-cave but I needed a pre- amp to connect it to my Hi-Fi amp. Richer Sounds to the rescue. The project PHONO box arrived quickly, was easy to install and I can now listen to my LP collection undisturbed !!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A little excellence Purchased to accompany my Pro-Ject Turntable, ideally suited, tiny in size but massive in sound. Fits snugly out of the way and does exactly what it's meant to do. Fast shipping, well packaged. Can't go wrong.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple to use, a neat solution I bought this a few weeks ago to solve a problem caused by a noisy tube pre-amp. I didn't want to change anything else about my setup and this integrated perfectly, giving me excellent value for money.
Date published: 2018-12-04
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple to set up, and integrate with existing kit. Having inherited a 1980s technics deck, I required a phono pre-amp to connect up with my existing amp. This little box arrived securely packaged, and with clear understandable instructions. The size of the pre-amp is such that it was easy to place within my pre-existing setup.
Date published: 2018-12-02
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good phono pre amp Brought this to go along with a new cartridge I bought at the same time. Far better than my old pre amp and the one that is built in to the turntable. So yes great things do come in small packages. Great sound from a little box.
Date published: 2018-09-02
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Size doesn’t matter. I was unsure about up grading my amp. When I did I only went and got one with no pre-amp. But after buying the project phono I am glad I did. The sound is amazing. It’s a world apart from my old set up. I can see why the guy in Richer Sounds was so keen on this little black box of magic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does what it says on the tin. Bought this to reanimate my old turntable and moving coil cartridge. Everything works well and the sound is as good as I remember it. Very easy to setup and very happy with the sound.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What it says on the box! I bought this pre-amp a few weeks ago and very pleased that I did. What can you say about. A small discreet box - no lights, no buttons - except the MM/MC selection button on the back. Glamorous? No! Top quality? Yes. A really nice clean balanced pre-amplification that enhances your music listening experience. what more could you ask for from a pre-amp.
