Dock Box S Fi‚ Project Box
Pro-Ject's Dock Boxes are the ideal solution to making the iPod part of an audiophile hi-fi system. Dock Boxes act like a perfect buffer amp for the iPod, lowering the distortion level significantly. After passing an initial amplifier section, the signal is transferred to the hi-fi system with an impedance lower than 15 ohms. This guarantees trouble-free signal transmission with ultra-flat frequency response and offers the best, most cost-effective way to build an audio system around an iPod.
The 'Fi' model stands for 'Fixed' and is the audiophile version with a fixed volume level, which is intended to be incoporporated into any existing hi-fi system

Q: What can be done withr USB connection on the back of Dock Box?
A: USB socket of Dock Box Vi or Fi is intended to connect a computer to an Apple iPod/iPhone/iPad music player, when connected to Dock Box. You can synchronize your Apple player with iTunes on your computer, without the need of removing it from the Dock Box.
Q: What is the use of S-Video connection on the back of Dock Box?
A: Some iPods are able to display video, therefore the S-video connection can be connected to a monitor or TV. Usually picture quality is not sufficient on bigger displays.
Q: Can this item work with the iPhone 5?
A: Unfortunately the iPhone 5 is shipped with a lightning connector, not the old-style 30-pin connection. This makes it incompatible with the Pro-Ject Dock Box S Fi. You can however use a lightning adaptor for the two devices to communicate.
