BRAND: Pass Labs
The XP-32 is a three-piece modular preamplifier consisting of one control/power supply chassis and two additional gain chassis each containing analog signals of a single channel.
The XP-32 generates less noise, crosstalk and distortion while delivering greater dynamic range, gain, output voltage and output current. But it is the sound, not the technical excellence, that truly makes this a breakthrough instrument.
“Replacing the well-regarded XP-30, the three-box XP-32 looks almost identical. To minimize noise, each channel’s audio circuitry is housed in a separate chassis with the “dirty” control and power-supply circuitry in a third.”

“JA was enthralled by the XP-32’s transparency, hearing small details in his own recordings that he had not been fully aware of before. “A great preamplifier will allow through so much information, so much of the music, that the shortcomings of lesser speakers and amplifiers can be forgotten. The Pass Labs XP-32 satisfies that definition…”
