View Full Version : Pro-ject "The Phono Box" voltage?

14-06-2009, 12:42
Just borrowed one of these for comparison to my phono amp.
I need to find a wallwart to power it, and there is nothing written on the case to give me a clue what the ac voltage is. I was hoping someone here might be able to tell me.
It's the older type with the jumpers inside to switch between MM/MC.
Thanks in advance.

The PSU from my Pro-ject Phono Box SE is a 16v AC - AC Adaptor

Model No. AC-1600500BS

Input : 230v~50Hz 15W

Output : 16V~500mA 8.0VA

Not sure if they were the same across the range but it gives you a start.

Try this http://www.sandan.com.hk/bs_st.htm half way down the page? I think thats the original one! :)

Or try this, I know a couple of wammers have used it as a replacement, cheap & easy to obtain :eyebrows:
