For Sale: Pro-Ject Speed Box II

Post by BMRR » 28 Aug 2019 14:46

For sale: a Pro-Ject Speed Box II in very good condition. Works perfectly. Has a very small scratch on the top of the case that is only visible when you're looking at it up-close.

This device adds quartz speed regulation and push-button speed selection to various Pro-Ject turntables, improving speed stability and eliminating the need to adjust the belt when switch from 33pm to 45rpm and vice versa.

Setup is very simple: you connect the turntable's "wall wart" power supply to the Speed Box, and then you plug the Speed Box into the turntable's power input jack. That's it.

You can view the instruction manual to see more information and find out which turntables it is compatible with. Here is the link to the manual:

These sell new for $130. I'm selling this one for $80 and that includes free shipping in the USA.

Here are some photos, and I should also add that this device works with certain Music Hall turntables as well.

Last but not least, here are some reviews from the audio press:

"Truth be told, I really wasn't expecting much from this teeny weeny box...Aye Caramaba! The wee Speed Box was a minor revelation, even with a couple of thousand dollars of fancy power cables and AC conditioning, the Speed Box had a huge impact on playback!"
– 6Moons

"Aside from providing better regulation of platter speed, the Speed Box permits electronic switching between 33 1/3 and 45rpm. Everything tightened up: high-frequency transients sharpened, bass textures became far more musically recognizable, and overall 'tunefulness' – the ability of the table to deliver the beats that make music sound real – became credible. If you’ve got a Pro-Ject or a Music Hall turntable, do yourself a favor and invest [the money] in a Speed Box Mk II! It makes the table sound twice as good. No kidding!"
– Michael Fremer, Stereophile

"The addition of a Speed Box proved very worthwhile, adding more control to the timing, a better sense of placement of the performers in a venue that seemed to have grown in size in all directions."
– Hi-Fi News
