Emotiva XPS-1 High Performance Phono Preamp With Selectable Moving Magnet and Moving Coil Capability. Do you have a large collection of vintage records? Or are you tempted by the ongoing vinyl revival? If so, the XPS-1 high-performance phono preamp is exactly what you need to breathe new life into your analog media. With high precision and low noise, the XPS-1 is perfect for connecting a turntable to any line stage, preamp, or other audio equipment with line-level RCA inputs.


Advanced Design for Exceptional Performance

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.

Flexibility for a 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.

Small and Affordable—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 analog sound—with 21st Century performance!
