The XP-500 is a dual mono preamplifier, the left and right channel are independent, powered by two high current capacity toroidal transformers. This design ensures better channel separation and better stereo image.

The X-P500 is the real command centre of your system, it is suitable for all current sources, analogue, digital, dematerialized or physical. Each type of entry has been carefully studied. The X-P500 thus has nine analogue inputs including a balanced input and a configurable dual-level MM or MC phono input. The adjustment of the capacitance of the phono cartridge is configurable.

On the digital side, the X-P500 has two digital optical inputs, a coaxial digital input, a USB B input (asynchronous XMOS) and a USB A. The digital signals are converted by the famous Wolfson WM8742 converter.

These digital inputs are supplemented by a proprietary port allowing you to connect the BT direct path X-FTB01 adapter.

Signal processing is as direct (direct path) as possible so that its original quality is not altered. The interactive menu offers two modes of use, “Class A” mode or discrete mode. The "Class A" output is based on a circuit based on bipolar transistors only, in a "double cascode" type assembly offering a performance in terms of distortion gradation close to a tube assembly therefore very homogeneous and polarized in Class A, the “discrete” output is a stage based on a more classic typology based on a differential stage JFET input and bipolar current mirror with a polarized output in class AB, more in favour of a distortion in odd harmonics sometimes less appreciated “at the ear ”, but sometimes also felt as more defined.

The use of the X-P500 is particularly easy thanks to a single rotary button with push for the validation of a choice offers the access to the selection of the inputs, the adjustments of volume, bass, treble tones, the balance, the loudness, deactivation of the automatic switch-off after 30 minutes of inactivity.

On the output side, the X-P500 is as complete as on the input side: one balanced (XLR), one unbalanced (Cinch), one recording (Rec Out), one high-pass output and two outputs for sub-bass.

Finally, cherries on the cake, the designers have not forgotten the aficionados of listening to headphones by integrating, under the device, a double independent adjustment for two headphones of the gain + 6.0, -4dB and the output impedance 0 or 100Ω.
