The XPS-1 is a high-performance phono preamplifier, which features support for both moving coil and moving magnet phono cartridges. The XPS-1 delivers excellent performance, with very low noise and distortion, and exceptionally accurate RIAA equalization.
The XPS-1 accepts standard RCA inputs and outputs, and will work with any equipment which offers line level analog inputs, which makes it an excellent way to add a high-quality phono input to our XMC_1 or MC-700 processor, or to add an extra phono input to your favorite preamp.
The XPS-1 takes its cues from Emotiva’s precision line-level equipment, with high-quality components throughout the signal path for accurate RIAA equalization, extremely low noise for even low-output cartridges, and vanishingly low distortion. Special attention was paid to the low-noise power supplies; both the external highly regulated AC supply and the individual switching supplies within the XPS-1.
The circuitry in the XPS-1 is designed to provide the optimum gain and noise performance for both Moving Magnet (MM) and Moving Coil (MC) cartridges. You can configure the load impedance on the Moving Coil input to achieve the best sound for your particular cartridge.
Best of all, the XPS-1’s performance doesn’t come at a high price, and its small size makes it the ideal companion for your turntable, without sacrificing rack space. Have multiple turntables? Get an XPS-1 for each, and prepare yourself for sweeping vistas of beautiful analog sound—with 21st Century performance!
