Pass Laboratories recently unveiled its XP-10 and XP-20 preamplifiers which have audiophiles around the world excited.

The XP-10 and XP-20 were created by audio designer Wayne Colburn with the convenience of remote control and, in the XP-20, an external power supply isolated from the analog circuits in a matching second chassis. Like all Pass Labs designs, the XP-10 and XP-20 deliver exemplary, highly reliable performance while minimizing the number of components and stages in the signal path. Either model could easily be the last preamplifier a music enthusiast need ever
purchase.

Designed by audiophiles for audiophiles, the XP-10 and XP-20 are the finest preamplifiers Pass Labs has ever built, more refined descendants of its highly acclaimed X-Series Preamplifiers, represented by such models as the X0.2, X1 and X2.5. The X-series preamps earned many highly respected accolades, and provided a solid foundation for developing the new XP models.

The XP-10 and XP-20 more accurately reproduce state-of-the-art recordings, lend more weight to highly dynamic passages, delineate bass lines more clearly, cleanly and accurately, and present instruments and voices in a more refined spatial envelope with better spectral balance. Nuances and fine details become apparent even in loud and highly complex musical passages. The preamps also provide listeners with a wider choice of listening levels, employing 64 volume steps in small increments.
