The Pro-Ject Stream Box RS is a high-specification music client that is designed to offer audiophile playback of your entire digital music library in a convenient and appealing way.
The Stream Box RS's audio circuitry benefits from using E88CC tubes for ultimate fidelity and components, that guarantee extremely low noise and distortion levels.

The inclusion of a remote and a large high-visibility screen makes navigation and playback easy, while the multiple connectivity options mean the Stream Box RS is a worthy client for any high-fidelity application.

AirPlay: With the use of a free application - available on the App store for iPhones or iPod Touch, and through the Android Market - the Stream Box RS can be used as an Air Play-like product. Simply install the Application onto your device, open it up and press the "My Music" icon. Select an album/track to play, and when the pop-up screen 'Play On' appears, select Stream Box RS. Please note, performance is most stable when used on a strong wireless network, and with lower file-sizes.
Spotify: By downloading Jamcast from SDS Technologies, users can set-up their Stream Box RS as a "Virtual Soundcard" on their network. Jamcast allows the playback of all audio from a computer to be transmitted to a Stream Box RS over the network, opening up such premium services as Spotify, Grooveshark and Last FM. Simply go to www.sdstechnologies.com and download the free 14-day trial (which is later upgradeable, at a small cost), and install the software onto your PC. Once installed, go to your Stream Box RS and select "Media Server", "Jamcast" (folder), "Virtual Soundcard" (folder), "Virtual Soundcard". Now, all the audio from your PC will be transmitted to the Stream Box RS. Please note, a stable wired connection on the computer and the Stream Box allows for a more solid performance.
