PROJECT Record Box E USB Phono Pre Amplifier
Please Note: Phono Pre-Amp's require RCA cables to connect to your amplifier. We have a wide selection of cables and interconnects available HERE.
Record Box E is an high-quality phono preamplifier, that offers the possibility to convert your valuable vinyls into computer music data. Re-cord Box E accepts both MM & MC cartridges and gives audiophile music experience at an entry-level price. The integrated A/D converter operates with Windows and MAC operating systems and connects via USB to your computer. Therefore your valuable vinyl collection can be digitised, especially for use in portable music players. Advanced circuitry and SMD construction keep noise and distortion at a surprisin-gly low level. A built-in internal shielding and an outboard DC power supply leave no risk for external interference. Because of its small casing, Record Box E can be placed near the turntable. Input and output sockets are gold-plated for preservation of quality. Record Box E can be connected easily to a line-input (AUX etc) of your amplifier.
FAQ - Hints for using A/D Phono Box S
Q: Does a driver exist for the A/D Phono Box S?
A: You do not need a driver for Windows-, Mac OSX or Linux-Systems.
The driver is already integrated in the operating system.
Q: A/D Phono Box S will not be recognized by Mac OSX and is not available under Audio. What can I do?
A: Turn off your Computer and press at start alt+cmd+p+r until another starting sound appears. With this command the USB bus will be reset and the USB Box will be recognized new.
Q: Why is there no sound coming from my Apple computer when I am using the Record Box E as a record source while the internal soundcard or the S/PDIF connection of the Apple computer is configured as playback source.
A: For playback while recording at the Apple computer, the additional tool "LineIn" is necessary since OS X 10.
"LineIn" is for free download available here: www.rogueamoeba.com/freebies/
