Emotiva XSP1 Gen2 2-Channel Preamp

Overview

The Emotiva XSP1 Gen2 is 2-Channel Pre-amplifier which offers exceptional sound quality with analogue, fully balanced, with very low noise and distortion.  The Emotiva XSP1 Gen2 has a very good phono stage RIAA equalization.  It is dead quiet in operation which reveals tape hiss and other subtle details transferred to the vinyl from the original master tape.

 

Emotiva XSP1 Gen2 Features

  • Exceptional sound quality via an all-analog, fully balanced, differential signal path with vanishingly low noise and distortion.
  • Tight-tolerance surface mount components and short, precisely matched signal paths deliver a superb, tightly focused acoustic signature.
  • Excellent input and output flexibility: 2 sets of balanced inputs, 4 sets of unbalanced inputs, one set of balanced main outputs, and one set of unbalanced main outputs.
  • In addition to supporting both stereo subwoofers, it also support a summed mono subwoofer.
  • Level control via a high resolution (.5dB/step) digitally controlled analog resistor network.
  • Audiophile quality, load invariant, high current headphone amplifier with independent level control and memory.
  • High performance phono preamp supports both moving magnet and moving coil cartridges, with user-configurable cartridge loading for moving coil cartridges.
  • Full analog bass management with independent, individually configurable, Linkwitz-Riley 12 dB/octave high-pass and low-pass filters for the mains and subs.
  • Digital flexibility and convenience including precise repeatability on all settings, a smart mute function, turn on level limit, and a full function remote control.
  • True external processor loop.
  • Top quality parts and construction for years of reliable service, including hand-selected semiconductors and top quality passive components.
  • Gold plated, solid brass machined RCA connectors and gold plated XLR connectors.
  • Highly regulated and shielded toroidal power supply.
  • Informative, dimmable front panel VFD display shows level, status, and input selections.
  • Flexible trigger and control options.
  • Universal AC line voltage.
  • Fully transferrable five-year warranty.
