Pro-Ject Media Box S Digital Music Player
FAQ - Hints for using Media Box S Q: Does the Media Box S play Flac and Wav? A: No. Media Box does not play Flac and Wav and that has also a very good reason. In designing our Doc Boxes we realized that you can get surprizing very good results with Mp3, AAC and WMA formats at the highest possible resolution of 320 kbps / 384 kbps. So we looked forward to make a simple product which sounds great with Pc recorded music as we decided to make the Media Box S for the price we looked for we had tw choices. Either to go with a high resolution Chip and ordinary D/A converters and analogue output stage or with a a simple chipset and sophisticated D/A converters and analogue output stage. Our listening panels proved that the quality of the Da converters and output stage has more influence to the sound then the resolution only. So we decided to use for this price point the more conservative solution. Q: Is there a digital music player that offers more playback options and an even better sound quality? A: For sure both at the best would give the best sound and that you can get with our Stream Box DS which does all formats and has a very highend analogue solution. Additionally we have to state that Media Box s should give the customer the possibility to listen to music from mass storage but without the necessity to switch on a PC or a network. So the main application is to have background music on a performance high level,with very easy control and use. For listening to highend music in the best resolution we recommend Streambox SE or a simple analogue record player from Pro-Ject.
