Headfonics summed with:
$399 the Pre Box S2 Digital is one of those all-in-one solutions that
defines what a typical 2018 digital audiophile might be looking for.
Roon Tested, full MQA unfolding, a low noise floor, easily transportable
and a very likable tonal presentation with a very modern DAC chip
solution inside. This is one well designed, feature-heavy little box and
it will sit very nicely indeed right beside your PC either at home or
in the office."
Hifi News gave it an "Outstanding Product" award and said:
Pre Box S2 Digital offers a wealth ofaudiophile tweakery but its
emphasis on USB ties it primarily but not exclusively to desktop and
On the other hand, USB hook-up means the S2 is still a portable option
for laptop users, and it doesn't need a battery. For the price, its
sound performanceis impeccable, combining clarity and precision with an
attractive warmth and impressive sense of space."
