The standard Tube Box is a pretty tough act to follow - it's been a popular model in the store and has always sounded great with any cartridge we have thrown at it.
In our tests of the Tube Box DS we have been very, very impressed. With a mid-range moving magnet cartridge like Ortofon's 2M Bronze, noise is nowhere to be found and the sound is very dynamic, clean and punchy.
Switching to a nicer Moving Coil Cartridge is simply a matter of changing a few simple jumpers on the back panel. The sound is superb and free of any noise which is a very good sign with lower output cartridges.
This is definitely a great option for those looking for a step up in their vinyl system. Pop into one of our stores and come check it out.
