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 performs at a top level, due to its very low noise and minimal distortion, and the highly accurate RIAA equalization.

RCA Connections

The connections for the XPS-1 are standard RCA for the input and output, designed to work with any equipment, with line-level analogue inputs, so it is an excellent method to add a high-quality phono input to an XMC_1 or MC-700 processor or to give you an extra phono input to your preamplifier.

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 ravishingly low distortion. Emotiva have paid attention to the power supply, to ensure it is low-noise; both the for the external regulated AC power supply and the individual switching supplies contained within the XPS-1.

Broad Range of Cartridges

The circuits of the XPS-1 are designed to optimise the gain and control the possibility of noise from either MM (Moving Magnet) or MC (Moving Coil) cartridges. The XPS-1 is configurable, allowing you to change the load impedance on the MC input to provide you with the optimum sound for your chosen cartridge.

Ideal for Multiple Turntables

The outstanding factor of the XPS-1 is that its audio performance does not come to a large price tag, plus its compact size makes it ideal to sit alongside your turntable, without you having to sacrificing rack space. If you have more than one turntables, the XPS-1 is the perfect solution for each of them, so you can easily enjoy the beautiful analogue sound, with 21st Century performance
