Pro-ject Speed Box S

I have a Pro-ject Debut Carbon TT with a Music Hall A15.2 amp and Wharfedale 10.1 speakers. I have had it for about 6 months, and really love the sound. I am looking to do a slight upgrade, and have heard good things about the Speed Box S. 

Does anyone on this site have experience with the Speed Box? I am most interested in this upgrade for improving sound quality. The ability to easily switch between 33s and 45s, although nice, is not a big deal to me. 

Any advice would be appreciated.

System

It sounds as if you have a very nice system there.

IMO the speed box is a waste of money.

I suggest that you get a Musical Fidelity V-LPS phono preamp, which will be a far more noticeable upgrade in sound quality.

A cartridge upgrade to the Ortophon Blue would also be a very noticeable sonic upgrade, if you are still using the one that came with the turntable.

Great, thanks for the

Great, thanks for the response. Looks like I may hold off any any major tweaks for now. Any other lower cost tweaks (such as a record clamp) that will help me maximize the sound quality?

I have the same turntable.  I really like it a lot.  I also have the Project Speedbox II.  It does make switching beteween 33 and 45 as easy as a punch of a button but it also provides some stability in the motor.  I noticed that I didn't hear as much noise after I added the Speedbox.One other upgrate to this turntable that I did and it was a real noticeable difference right away was add the Pro-Ject Acryl-It Platter.  i'd start there.  Good luck with it.
