Product Description

Emotiva XPS-1 Phono Stage 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.

RCA Connections

The XPS-1 accepts standard RCA inputs and outputs, and will work with any equipment which offers line-level analogue inputs, which makes it an excellent way to add a high-quality phono input to XMC_1 or MC-700 processor or to add an extra phono input to your favourite preamp.

Advanced Design

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.

Broad Range of Cartridges

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.

Ideal for Multiple Turntables

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 analogue sound—with 21st Century performance!
