I’ve the chance to pick up a new Pro-ject DS2 Phono stage at a good discount. Note this is not the Tube or USB model, just the straight forward MC/MM phono stage. I think this currently sits between the S2 Ultra and the RS ranges.
I can’t find any independent reviews of this model at all. I’d appreciate any experience anyone has with this model. I’m pretty well aware of the alternatives in the price range (circa £250), but wonder if the Pro-Ject might be competative. This will sit in a second system and feed a Uniti Atom driving my lifelong companions - a pair of B&W DM1600 stand mounts.
Primarily MM use planned but you never know. Initially Ortofon 2M Blue but may step up to a FL/ML or Shibata profiled cartridge. The Turntable is a stock Pro-ject Evo Carbon. I’d value rounded performance, and 3 dimensional presentation (consummate to the cartridge) over clinical precision. Should say I’ve a return option so I may give it a go anyway but just curious what to expect.
Cheers - Mike
