Pro-Ject Stream Box DSA
Dear music lover, thank you for purchasing the PRO-JECT AUDIO Stream Box DSA.
In order to achieve maximum performance and reliability you should study this instruction manual carefully.
Hazard warning for the user, the unit or possible misuse
Important notice
With the Stream Box DSA you can fetch music tracks out of your home network and play it back with your
stereo system. This process is called “streaming”. The music in this case is stored on a so called server, that is
connected to the same home network as the Stream Box DSA.
It is possible to configure just a normal PC as a server, so that it provides the network with all the music files
in its storage. Another type of server, the so called NAS (Network Attached Storage), works as an interface
between one or more large harddisks and the network. In many cases there’s a program integrated on this
NAS, that works as a server and makes available media files for the net. One common and widely used
program of this type is Twonky Media. The Stream Box DSA is able to stream media files from servers, which
fulfil the DLNA/UPNP standard. How to install such a server and how to put media files on it isn’t a part of and
not described in this manual.
The items of the submenus you can reach from the item media server in the root menu can differ
dependent on the server program in use. In this manual the items of a typical server, Twonky Media, is used.
With different submenu items, e.g. because of a different server software, different settings, or other versions of
Twonky Media, the operation of the unit is still very similar to the procedures that are described here.

Make all connections while the Stream Box DSA is disconnected from the power supply. Take care to
connect the left and right channels (RCA sockets and speaker terminals) correctly. Take care not to
shorten the (+) and (–) speaker terminals, e.g. by a loose strand of a litz speaker wire.
Speakers connection
The speaker output terminals of the Stream Box DSA in the upper right area accept loudspeaker cables
terminated with 4mm Banana plugs, spades connectors, or blank wire. The red speaker terminals carry
the positive signal (+), the black speaker terminals the negative signal (–). Make sure the polarity of the
connection is correct at each end of the cables. Only connect one loudspeaker per channel, with an
impedance not less than 4 ohms.
Connection to an amplifier/stereo system
The Stream Box DSA provides an output with volume regulation and a second one with fixed level. Connect
the RCA sockets of the latter (Fix Out) to a matching line input (such as AUX) at your amplifier via a RCA
cable. The Var Out sockets can be used with such an input too. The intended use of those connectors
nevertheless is to act as preamplifier outputs, they can be connected directly to a stereo power amplifier. The
RCA sockets for the right channel are each marked red, the RCA sockets for the left channel are each marked
white.
Connection to an external D/A converter
Connect the Out S/PDIF socket to a coaxial digital input on the D/A converter or AV processor.

Connection to an external music source unit
The Stream Box DSA provides four connections for external source units, two analog and two digital. Connect
the RCA Analog In1 or Analog IN 2 sockets via a RCA cable with the output of your source unit. The digital
inputs S/PDIF and Optical serve for connections with digital outputs of source units via respective coaxial or
optical cables.
Connection to your home network via cable
Connect the Ethernet socket with your home network using a RJ45 cable.
Wireless connection to your home network
If a wired network connection isn’t possible or desired, the Stream Box DSA is capable of connecting to the
home network via WLAN. Fasten the WLAN antenna to the connector near the upper left corner on the back
of the unit. The antenna should be angled into upright position or to one side.
USB connections
Here you can connect USB harddisks or USB flashdisks. The Stream Box DSA only works with harddisks and
flashdisks that are formatted with FAT 16 or FAT 32. NTFS disks are not supported.
Mains power connection
The unit is supplied with a power supply suitable for your country’s mains supply. Check the label before
connecting to ensure compliance with the mains rating in your house. Connect the low voltage plug from the
power supply to the Power 24V  socket before connecting the power supply to the mains.
It isn’t possible to disconnect the Stream Box DSA completely from mains power by the power button.
Therefore it consumes a small amount of power even then, when it is switched into stand-by mode. If you are
not going to use the player for an extended period of time, e.g. vacation, we suggest to disconnect it from the
AC mains. Please make sure that the player is in standby-mode prior to unplugging the power supply from the
AC mains.
Safety Instructions
Use the Stream Box DSA only with the DC 24V/5A power supply it is delivered with.
AC outlet voltages vary from country to country. Before connecting to the mains, make sure that the
voltage in your area meets the voltage requirements printed on the power supply. The power cord is
used to disconnect the unit from the mains. Make sure that the power cord is easily accessible at all
times. Never handle the device, the power cord/power supply while your hands are wet or damp.
Avoid letting liquids enter the device or the power supply. Never place any item containing liquid,
such as a flower vase on or near the device. Never spill any liquid on the device or the power supply.
Never place any naked flame sources, such as lighted candles on or near the device. The product
shall not be used in damp or wet locations, next to a bathtub, sink, swimming pool or any other
similar conditions.

different menu, the display changes back to playback. The audio playback will not be interrupted during
display changes.
With a push on this button the Stream Box DSA plays music tracks in random order. For this it uses all tracks
in the menu the playback was started from. E.g. if you started the playback out of an album, all album tracks
will be played back in random order. If you started out of All Titles, the Stream Box DSA plays all tracks on
the respective server in random order. With activated Shuffle, the display shows .

V– lowers it. While you adjust the volume, the current level is shown in a
large view, using the complete display. Without ongoing adjustment the
level is shown in the small upper status bar.
Stream Box DSA setup
If you want to use the network functions of the Stream Box DSA, you
have to make some basic settings first. For that please navigate to
Settings in the root menu with the  buttons and confirm with the
button OK.
In the next menu please navigate to Network and confirm with OK.
In the next menu please go to Network Setup and confirm with OK.

Wired network configuration
Make sure that your Stream Box DSA is connected with your home
network via Ethernet cable (RJ45 connector).
In the menu that shows up after confirming Network Setup please go
to Wired and confirm. If the Stream Box DSA was in wireless network
mode before, the unit informs you now, that it has to reset for a change to
cable connection mode and asks, if you want it to do that. Please confirm
with OK. The Stream Box DSA now performs a reset.
Please go to Automatic (DHCP) now and confirm.
In the menu that now shows up, please select and confirm Proxy OFF.
Please confirm the final question “Apply Settings?” with OK. Now
all settings are made. Your Stream Box DSA now will work without
problems in almost all home networks and will find all available media
servers. The units shows that with the symbol
in the upper right
corner of the display.
In case different settings are necessary in your network, e.g for a proxy
server or a fixed IP address, please ask the person that installed your
network for advice. Which settings are necessary in your other network
devices is not described in this manual.
8
Wireless network configuration (WLAN)
First make sure that the WLAN antenna delivered with the unit is connected to the back of the Stream Box DSA
correctly.
Please select the menu Settings and then Network. Now go to
Wireless and confirm.
If the Stream Box DSA was in wired network mode before, the unit
informs you, that it has to reset for a change to wireless connection mode
and asks, if you want it to do that. Please confirm with OK. The Stream
Box DSA now performs a reset.
After the reset the Stream Box DSA shows the WLAN configuration menu.
The symbol
in the upper right corner of the display shows that at least
one WLAN network is available.
Select and confirm Scan. Now the Stream Box DSA performs a search for
locally available WLAN networks.
After the search is finished, the display now shows all found networks,
in our example it is only one. Select your own home network. You can
find the name of your WLAN network in the setup menu of your network
router or ask the person, who installed your network. Confirm your
selection with OK.
In the next step you have to enter your WLAN encryption key. You can
find it in the setup menu of you network router or ask the person, who
installed your network. You can enter characters either by pushing
the  keys repeatedly, until the desired character is shown in the
lowest line. Or, as a more a more convenient and faster option, you
can employ the alphanumeric keys of the remote control. The use of
the alphanumeric keys is very similar to the respective keys of a mobile
phone, e.g. to write a SMS. All letters are printed on the remote control
above the numeric keys. You have to push the particular key several
times, until the desired character is displayed. First you will see the
© Audio Trade GmbH · Pro-Ject Stream Box DSA · Version: December 1st, 2012
9
lower case characters, then the respective cipher and finally the upper case characters. E.g. with the key 3 the
characters d, e, f, 3, D, E, F will be displayed successively. If you push the key again, this sequence will start
anew. Special characters you can obtain with the Keys 1 and 0.
To enter the next character, either wait one second, until the cursor jumps right automatically, or press the 
key. If you have entered a wrong character, you can delete it by pressing the key
twice. For that you have
to move the cursor to the right side of the wrong character with the  keys.
Is the WLAN key entered completely, confirm with OK. If the WLAN key wasn’t correct, the display shows
Connection failed. If the WLAN key was correct, the connection to your home network will be established.
To encrypt a WLAN is a must! That way nobody is able to trace your data or to misuse your internet
connection. It’s possible that you’re liable for the consequences, if somebody acts in a criminal way
through your internet connection, even if you haven’t had any knowledge of it!
With an established connection the Network menu comes up in the
display. If you want to get information about the settings the router
transferred to the Stream Box DSA automatically, select Network Info.
That isn’t necessary, if the Stream Box DSA works as intended, but can
help if not and give somebody with technical knowledge about computer
networks the necessary information to resolve the problems.
Friendly Name is the name with that the Stream Box DSA identifies
itself in the home network.
SSID is the name of the WLAN routers. This line isn’t necessary, when the
Stream Box DSA is in wired network mode and not shown then.
DHCP is a function with that a network router or server assigns IP
addresses to other network devices automatically.
The IP Address is the identification address the Stream Box DSA got
from the router in your home network.
The MAC Address is unique for each network device in the world and
identifies your Stream Box DSA definitely.
With the menu item Default UPnP Server you can select the media
server you want to use preferentially. If a server is selected here, it will be
the default one for playback from root menu.
If a default UPnP Server is preselected, you can immediately access
Music and Pictures on the default server after you select Media
Server from root menu.
10
If no preselection was made in the Default UPnP Server menu, you
have to select the desired server in the Media Server menu first...
...before you have access to Photos and Music on this server.
Let’s go back to the last item of the Network menu. Here you can
change the Friendly Name that identifies your Stream Box DSA in
the home network. That is particularly helpful, if you use more than one
Stream Box DSA in your home network. Select and confirm Edit. For
entering characters refer to the instructions for entering the WLAN key
(page 10).
Playing music from a media server
For playing music from a media server, go to the root menu with the
key. There please navigate to the menu item Media Server
with the  keys and confirm your selection with the key OK.
If you haven’t selected a default media server in the Settings menu, you
now see all available servers in your home network one below the other.
Select the desired server with the  keys and confirm with OK.
© Audio Trade GmbH · Pro-Ject Stream Box DSA · Version: December 1st, 2012
11
Now you see the menu shown on the right side. Go to Music with the
 keys and confirm with OK.
If you have selected a default media server in the Settings menu, the
selection menu for Music and Photos is shown right after you select
Media Server in the root menu. Go to Music with the  keys
and confirm with OK.
In the menu than comes up now, the music tracks on the selected server
are sorted by several criteria for easier search. The sorting terms are
more or less self-explanatory: E.g. in Album the tracks are sorted in
Albums with the original playback order. All Titles means exactly that:
This list contains all tracks on the server in alphabetic order.
In Genre/Song the tracks are sorted by music types.
In Artist the sorting criterion is the performer, who recorded the track.
In Folder you can access the tracks in the memory folders on the server
like with a normal computer. When you select Playlists, you find there
all playlists you generated yourself on a computer and saved on the
server.
For the different sorting criteria, the media servers and the Stream Box DSA are using additional
information saved with the music track files in the very most cases, the so called tags. All important
file formats, e.g. MP3 or FLAC, contain such tags, with the exception of WAV. This format anyway is
not so well suited for the use with music servers because of its high memory requirements.
The tags include information like the name of the CD the track is part of, the title number, the
name of the title, its length and the genre. In tracks downloaded from the internet these tags are
usually already contained. If you save music from a CD to your computer (in computer language
this procedure is called “ripping”), you have to add the tags yourself. Luckily this process usually is
handled by the ripping software automatically. It gets the necessary information from databases in the
internet and searches for CD covers too. It is worthwhile to provide the tracks with as complete tag
information as possible to help media server and Stream Box DSA sorting the music by meaningful
criteria.
Additionally you should take a look into the settings of your media server. If for example the media
server menus in the Stream Box DSA are displayed not in English, although you have selected
English in the language settings menu, the reason for that is a wrong setting on the server.
Normally you can personalize these settings according to your needs. Please refer to the manual of
the server or server software for directions how to change the settings.
12
Alphanumeric search on media servers
The Stream Box DSA allows for an alphanumeric search for menu items
on media servers, e.g. albums, titles, or artists. Only the items of the
menu that currently is displayed can be found. Other items – even in
submenus – cannot be found by this function. E.g. if you are looking for
a certain title, go to the menu All Tracks in the Music menu on your
media server. Now you can enter the desired search pattern with the
alphanumeric button on the remote control. You can do that in exactly the
same way as is describe on pages 9 and 10 for the WLAN encryption key.
It is possible to key in only one character, but also possible to use two or
more for a more precise search.
Displaying photos from a media server
For displaying photos from a media server, go to the root menu with the
key. There please move to the menu item Media Server with
the  keys and confirm your selection with the key OK. After that,
please go to the desired server and then to Photos and confirm.
Now you can see a list of several criteria comparable to the music
menus. This criteria help sorting and searching all photos on the
media server. Again the criteria are self-explanatory: In Album you
find the stored CD covers, By Date contains a list sorted by Date
and in Slideshows you find all slideshows you generated yourself on
a computer and saved on the server. The menu operation is similar
– including the search function – to what is described in the chapter
„Playing music from a media server“.
© Audio Trade GmbH · Pro-Ject Stream Box DSA · Version: December 1st, 2012
13
Playing music from USB flashdisk or USB harddisk
To play music from a USB flashdisk or USB harddisk, connect it (the
latter with an appropriate cable) to one of the two USB connectors on
the front or back of the Stream Box DSA. Then go to the root menu
and there into USB 1 for the front connector
with a push on the
or USB 2 for the connector on the back. Then the menu you see on
the right will be shown in the display. The menu operation is similar
– including the search function – to what is described in the chapter
„Playing music from a media server“.
The main difference to the playback from media servers is, that from
USB disks the Stream Box DSA only can show the folder structure as
you would see it on a normal computer. Additionally, it doesn’t display
the title names extracted from tag information, but only the normal
computer file names. Because of that the sort order is alphabetical only.
If you want to play the tracks of an album in the original order, you have
to make sure that the files are named in such a way, that they will be
sorted in the correct order. A good solution for that is to name the files
with leading numbers corresponding to the track number on the original
album. Some CD ripping programs do that automatically.
Playing internet radio stations
A great number of radio stations all over the world are transmitting their programs not only to the air, but into
the internet too. This way everyone is able to receive his preferred radio programs at every place in the world
with internet connection, without interference and mostly in better quality than with a normal radio receiver.
You only need a internet connection and a device that is able to decode and receive the internet data, e.g. a
normal computer with an internet program, for instance Mozilla Firefox. Unfortunately the search for a certain
radio station can be a tedious task. Moreover, you may not want to switch on your computer only to listen to a
radio station.
The Stream Box DSA enables you to listen to internet radio without a PC. Furthermore it substantially simplifies
the search for radio stations because it makes use of the internet service vTuner. This service is free of charge
for all owners of the Stream Box DSA and provides a number of criteria for search and sorting. vTuner makes
the navigation to the desired radio station very fast and easy.
If you want to compile your own favorites list, it’s easier and less complicated to do that with your PC than with
the Stream Box DSA. You can do that with vTuner over the internet and will find the instructions for that process
on pages 15 and 16.
If you want to listen to an internet radio station, do the following: Go to
key. There please move to the menu item
the root menu with the
Internet Radio with the  keys and confirm your selection with the
key OK.
14
Now you see a menu list with several sorting criteria, which help you
to find a desired radio station. E.g. in one menu you find only radio
stations in the country the Stream Box DSA is connected to the internet
(in the shown display Germany). In Genre you can find radio stations
specialized to one music type.
In Search Stations you can enter the name of the desired station
with the alphanumeric keys of the remote control. For entering
characters refer to the instructions for entering the WLAN key (page 10).
A podcast is a radio program, that is not broadcasted live but stored
on a computer. From there it can be retrieved over the internet. With
the Stream Box DSA menu items Search Podcasts, Podcast by
Location and Podcast by Genre the search for interesting programs
is very convenient and easy.
If you want to compile a favorites list on the vTuner internet site, you have
to get the access code for this site first. In the menu Internet Radio go
to the item Get access code with the  keys of the remote control
and confirm.
Now enter the access code you see in the Stream Box DSA display on the
internet site http://streamunlimited.vtuner.com. DON’T use the
code printed here in the manual, it will not work. On the vTuner website
you have to register first (it’s completely free of charge). Follow the
instructions on the website for registering and compiling of the list.
© Audio Trade GmbH · Pro-Ject Stream Box DSA · Version: December 1st, 2012
15
After your favorites list is finished, you will find a new menu item on the
first position in the menu Internet Radio: My Favorites. Here you
will find all the stations you compiled in the internet.
Playback of external sources via analog and digital inputs
In the root menu, go with the  buttons to them menu item of the
input you want to play back. The Stream Box DSA provides for four
inputs: SPDIF RCA, SPDIF Opto, Analog IN1, and Analog IN2 .
Confirm your selection with OK.
The selected input will be shown in a large view, using the complete
display. In contrast to the playback from media servers, internet radio and
iPod/iPhone, that is continued, when you go to other menus, the Stream
Box DSA stops the playback over the analog and digital inputs, when you
leave their menu, e.g. With a push on the  button.
Other settings
In the menu Settings (last item of root menu) you can make some
further settings.
In the menu item Time you can set the Time Zone of the place, where
the Stream Box DSA is, and switch on and off the Daylight Saving
correction. In Show Clock you can control the time settings.
16
In User Interface you can set the language of the menu. This setting is
only partly valid for the menus of the media servers. Their languages has
to be set in the server programs directly and not in the Stream Box DSA.
In Themes you can choose between two display appearances, Theme
1 and Theme 2.
In Display Timeout you can set the time, after that the display will
switch off automatically to save energy. The display comes on again,
when you press an arbitrary button on the remote control. The function
of this button will not be executed in this case. You have to push that
button a second time to execute its command.
Software update
For a software update, please go to the Settings menu (last item in
root menu) and there to the General menu. Go down to Software
Update and confirm with OK. The Stream Box DSA now searches for
a new version of its operating software in the internet. If the unit finds
a new version, it will install the software immediately. Is no new version
available, the unit will show this information on the display.
