Pro-Ject Audio Systems was founded by Heinz Lichtenegger 1990 in Vienna, with the idea that analogue playback is the most costeffective way to listen to music of audiophile quality. Inspired by the concept of supporting analogue in the face of the digital onslaught, Pro-Ject Audio Systems became one of the most powerful driving forces in reinventing analogue turntables for the hi-fi market. Today, Pro-Ject Audio Systems is the world leader in the manufacture of quality hi-fi turntables, as turntables are once again accepted as a must-have for every concerned music lover. Pro-Ject Audio Systems’ products are exported to almost 80 countries worldwide and is the recipient of nearly every award in the audio industry. Since 2006, Pro-Ject Audio Systems has been bringing its idea “less is more” mission to the digital world. Inspired by the new possibilities of the iPod and high-quality music reproduction from a PC or laptop, Pro-Ject Audio Systems has designed a complete new and revolutionary range of micro high-end Hi-fi components under the family name BOX DESIGN. Starting with the smallest audiophile amp in the world, with open and euphonic sound, Pro-Ject Audio Systems now produces all of the components of traditional hi-fi systems including CD players, tuners, phono amps, headphone amps and switching modules, as well as digital products such as docking stations, D/A converters and streamers to connect with the PC wired or wireless. BOX DESIGN regards itself as the ‘next generation of hi-fi’ – the link between the micro-sized hardware of the IT world and the big boxes of the audiophile world. All products, except for speakers and headphones, are designed and produced in Europe.
