The Pass Laboratories XP-10 and XP-20 present a dramatically superior noise floor and very fine detail retrieval so that it's practical to listen to and enjoy music at very low volumes. Enhanced details come through without any loss of musicality. The preamps do not have to be played at live performance levels to enjoy the musical experience, although they can be played as loudly as any might care to or dare.

As exceptional as is the XP-10, the XP-20's isolated power supply further enhances its performance, conveying musical bass with significantly more impact, articulation and timbral accuracy. With well-recorded material, the XP-20 presents a more refined sound stage than the XP-10 with greater ability to accurately delineate instruments in their proper spatial perspectives. However, both preamps deliver the experience of a musical event in a more believable sonic panorama than anything Pass Labs has previously brought to market.

Both the XP-10 and XP-20 are housed in sleek chassis of brushed aluminum, measuring 17 inches wide by 12 inches deep by 4 inches high. The XP-20 has a second matching chassis for its external power supply, which can be turned on using the remote control. Both preamps furnish two balanced and three single-ended inputs.

The XP-10 and XP-20 Preamplifiers are available now from authorized Pass Labs dealers at suggested retail prices of $5,250 and $8,600, respectively.
