New Circuitry, Low Noise Floor, Convenient features, and an Expansive Soundstage

Pass Laboratories, Inc., an audio innovator renowned for its unique high-performance products, has introduced the XP-25 Phono Preamp, an ultra high-quality, line-stage audio preamplifier with a unique dual-chassis beginning today.

The XP-25 features new circuitry designs, a second chassis for a separate power supply, and a front panel with rotary switches to select gain, loading, and cartridge type. It’s ideal for use with both moving magnet and moving coil cartridges, and presents in performance a new dimension of dynamics, inner detail and spectral richness with a very low noise floor and a more expansive soundstage than previous Pass Labs phono stages.

Developed by Nelson Pass’ Co-designer Wayne Colburn, the XP-25 is a larger, higher performance sibling to Pass Labs’ exceptional XP-15 Phono Preamp, which followed Pass Labs’ award-winning X-ono phono-stage. The XP-25 also boasts adjustable gain, two separate inputs, a low-cut filter, mute, and resistive and capacitive loading on the front panel for easy access. Its twin chassis of brushed aluminum each measure 17 inches wide by 12 inches deep by 4 inches high, and total 55 pounds in weight.

The XP-25 Phono Preamp is available now from authorized Pass Labs dealers at a suggested price of $10,600 (U.S. MSRP).
