Real command centre of your hi-fi system
The new Px1 preamplifier sets an absolute benchmark.

Designed around two monophonic preamplifiers gathered in the same box, our Px1 stereophonic preamplifier can be qualified as true dual mono, two EI type transformers, shielded by means of metal plates, an expensive but very effective solution.

The Px1 is the “nerve centre” of your high fidelity channel. Even though sound quality was our first priority, we wanted our preamplifier to be suitable for all current sources, analogue, digital, dematerialized or physical.

Nothing has been forgotten, each entry has been refined with the ultimate goal of obtaining musical reproduction at the best level. The PX1 thus has nine analogue inputs including a balanced input and a configurable double-level MM or MC phono input. The adjustment of the capacitance of the phono cartridge is configurable. On the digital side, the PX is not left out, it has three digital optical inputs, a coaxial digital input, a USB B input (asynchronous XMOS) as well as a USB A. The conversion of digital signals is provided by the famous Wolfson WM8740 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 Px1 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 PX1 is particularly easy thanks to a single rotary button with push for the validation of a choice offers access to the selection of inputs, volume adjustments, bass, treble tones, balance, loudness, deactivation automatic shutdown after 30 minutes of inactivity. Finally on the output side, your PX1 is as complete as 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.
