Pass Labs XP-12 Preamplifier - Consignment

Condition: Very Good

Includes: Original Packaging, Remote and Power Cable

SN: 36007

Made in USA


The new XP-12 features a redesigned power supply with an efficient toroidal transformer, equipped with both electrostatic and Mu metal shielding, and vacuum impregnation and epoxy filling. This results in an exceptionally quiet transformer, both electrically and mechanically.

The power supply circuitry is enhanced with additional filtering, reducing noise even further. While more complex, these improvements are highly beneficial.

The XP-12 incorporates the single-stage volume control from the XS line preamp, providing 100 steps of 1 dB each. This design reduces noise and distortion, and eliminates some signal path components.

The gain circuitry utilizes Toshiba transistors, featuring a larger, higher-biased output stage similar to the XS preamplifier's auto-bias system. This setup facilitates longer and multiple cable runs, simplifies the single-ended output circuitry, and enhances performance.

Overall, the XP-12 offers a quieter, more neutral, and musical performance, serving as a versatile and high-performing control center for your audio system.
