Fits on a shelf

Pro-Ject/Box Design offers an incredibly broad range of amplifiers, digital converters, phono preamps, CD players, streamers, speakers and headphones. These made-in-Europe components are a good deal smaller than standard electronics, so they'll fit in spaces most quality electronics cannot.
