The new X-P1200 preamplifier is the showcase of our know-how. Reference stereo preamplifier, it is in fact made up of two mono preamplifiers assembled in a single compartmentalized box in order to ensure complete isolation of the various circuits and preamplification stages. This design ensures better channel separation (crosstalk) and therefore a better stereo effect. Not only does your X-P1200 have independent preamplification circuits for the right channel and the left channel, but it is also at the level of their power supplies that we have chosen to make them completely independent thanks to the use of two transformers.
The X-P1200 is equipped with 9 analog inputs including 2 balanced XLR inputs., One USB B (XMOS) input, 2 coaxial digital inputs and 2 digital inputs. On the output side, you will have the choice between a balanced XLR or unbalanced RCA type output. Everything has been thought out to make this preamp the benchmark for the best audio systems: mains input with filtering by chokes and capacitors, two toroidal transformers with high current capacity, filtering made up of4 12000uF / 150V capacitors. The processing of digital sources is entrusted to an Analog Device AD1955 DA to AD converter.
This converter is particularly suitable for high-end and SACD applications. The quality of the digital/analog decoding is of very high level with a signal to noise ratio of 123 dB and an audio quality at the top. It is comprised of a multibit sigma delta modulator, high performance digital interpolation filters and continuous-time differential current output DACs. The playback of audio files from a PC or MAC computer is entrusted to XMOS, a benchmark solution in the field of quality audio reproduction.
Without a doubt, the X-P1200 will be associated with the X-A1200 mono unit for an exceptional hifi system.
