    A classic integrated with ample power

    The Stereo Box DS3 is Pro-Ject’s take on a classic stereo amplifier. It has solid, proven technology with 3 line inputs, a phono input for MM and MC cartridges, and a brand new Bluetooth V5.0 input for high compatibility with your source devices. The trigger connections allow you to power up other components with a single button.

    We designed the power amp section in a dual mono configuration with even more power than the previous DS2 model, with up to 150W per channel into 4 Ohms. The Stereo Box DS3 has enough grunt to handle the most demanding speakers offering a soundstage that isn’t only wide but deep too!

    The headphone jack isn’t just an afterthought slapped onto the circuit board. The headphone output offers a whopping 450mW at 32ohms. The included remote control is the proverbial “cherry on top”.

    The quality case is available in a black or silver finish and can be customized with magnetic wood side panels available in Walnut, Rosenut, and Eucalyptus to match your interior.

    Designed & handmade in Europe

    The new Stereo Box DS3 is carefully designed and handmade in Europe. We aim to develop a technically flawless device in a housing that is only as big as necessary to save raw materials.

    Due to the timeless design & rigid aluminium casework, the Stereo Box DS3 is built for eternity. We want to pioneer the industry by using high-quality materials, components and well-thought-out designs.
