The new Pre Box S2 Digital compact preamplifier/DAC with MQA and DSD512 assistance marks a brand-new period for Pro-Ject's popular S-series components. For the extremely first time ever, Pro-Ject is using a dual mono setup with flagship D/A converters made by ESS Sabre. The advanced ESS9038 double DAC makes sure the highest quality audio performance in a small and affordable plan. This DAC is capable of high resolution audio as much as a remarkable 32-bit, 768 kHz PCM and DSD512! Pre Box S2 Digital is also the extremely first Pro-Ject gadget to support hardware MQA decoding. It's also the best of the company's exclusive Optimum short-term digital filter and its exclusive clock circuitry style. Pro-Ject is using a 16-core XMOS chip for asynchronous USB information transfer and complete MQA hardware unfolding. The DAC directly controls the XMOS chip. A four layered, gold plated PCB with extra shielding is utilized to achieve ideal audio performance. Digital audio is all about the art of time, and with Pro-Ject's new exclusive clock style, the Pre Box S2 Digital manages jitter rates of unrivalled 100 Femtoseconds, which quickly surpasses many popular and highly regarded audiophile clock generators. Pre Box S2 Digital provides as much as 24-bit, 192 kHz decoding by means of its optical and coax inputs and as much as 32-bit, 768 kHz by means of USB. Pro-Ject is using double DAC 2 x ESS9038Q2M, the newest generation of SABRE Digital to Analog Converter. The ES9038 SABRE DAC is a high-performance 32-bit digital to analog converter and uses ESS's patented 32-bit Hyperstream II modulator architecture and Time Domain Jitter Remover. It is the first SABRE DAC to utilize new Dual-DAC architecture to further boost performance. The ESS9602 is utilized for the earphone amplifier and output buffer. It supports a dynamic series of as much as 122dB and THD+N of -117 dB with 600ohm loads. Furthermore, Pro-Ject implemented a distinct feature that enhances THD+N with 32ohm loads to -112 dB in Best Efficiency mode.
