Pro-Ject Optical Box E Phono
Dear music lover,
thank you for purchasing a Pro-Ject Audio phono amplifier with A/D converter.
In order to achieve maximum performance and reliability you should study these instructions for use carefully.
Warning of a hazard for the user, the unit or possible misuse
Important notice
Make all connections whilst the phono amplifier is disconnected from the power supply.
Take care to connect the left and right channels correctly. The right channel is usually marked
red, the left channel black or white.
Do not connect the phono amplifiers output to a phono input (sometimes labelled gram, disc
or RIAA) on the amplifier.
Never use any other power supply than the one supplied with the unit.
Input selector
Operating the push button Phono/Line selects the inputs. “Phono” represents signal from Phono In RCA
sockets. “Line” activates line level input Line In (jack 3.5mm).
Connecting the record player
Input button set to “Phono”.
Connect the tonearm signal lead to the Phono In RCA sockets of the phono preamplifier. The earthing wire may
be connected to the screw terminal GND if you encounter hum problems when using the record player.
Line level input
Input button set to “Line”.
A line level signal source (e.g. tape deck or reel deck) can be connected to the unit using Line In socket.
Integrated A/D converter relay the signal to digital data using Optical Out.
Sampling frequency
A dip switch located on the bottom of the unit sets the A/D converter output sampling rate to 96kHz or 48kHz.
The Switch set towards back side (to the connectors) represent 48kHz. Some of the amplifiers (soundbars etc.)
cannot handle sampling frequency higher than 48Hz.
Connection to the amplifier (Sound Bar, AV receiver etc.)
The unit provides analogue and digital output connection.
Use the analogue Line Out output of the unit for connection to a line input (such as AUX, CD, Tuner, Tape or
Video) in your amplifier.

Alternatively the built in AD converter allows to relay signal from inputs (Phono or Line) in digital format out of
the unit using Optical Out digital output to the corresponding digital input of the amplifier or any Sound Bar,
AV-receiver etc.
Both outputs (analogue and digital) run simultaneously.
Mains power connection
Connect the low voltage plug from the power supply to the Power 18V socket of the phono amplifier before
connecting the power supply to the mains.
