P-1000 MkII

A full-function Class-A audio preamplifier. For real music lovers.

PERFORMANCE TECHNOLOGY

Designed for High-End audio systems, the P-1000 MkII is an innovative Class-A line preamplifier powered by a new proprietary Six Gain Stage Ultra-Balanced design featuring relays and optical ALPS Encoder volume control. 

This preamplifier belongs to a new era of electronics. Top performances and advanced technology combined to offer an outstanding musical experience, with incredibly low distortion and extended linear bandwidth. 

The P-1000 MkII features a three independent linear transformer power supply and 8 stereo inputs: 4 fully balanced XLR and 4 RCA. It offers, besides, multiple functions: Mono/Stereo selection, Left/ Right channel swap, Absolute Phase swap, Booster technology, fine Balance tuning, and quadruple analogue outputs (two pairs of unbalanced stereo RCA and two pairs of balanced XLR).

TOTAL CONTROL

To perfectly reproduce even old recordings, the preamplifier can be set into Mono as well as Stereo mode. It also allows swapping the Left & Right channels to enable the reproduction of inverted recordings in addition to the absolute phase swap from 0° to 180°.

The Booster technology of P-1000 MkII allows getting the best out of speakers that require power supplies, providing greater energy in a very specific range of low frequencies. The Booster is completely bypassed when set to OFF.

The large colour display of the P-1000 MkII shows all functions and allowing quick and precise fine adjustments, whether using the Single-Knob-Control rotary joggle on the front panel and the IR remote control, making this preamplifier really easy to use.

To enhance the performance of the P-1000 MkII even further, it can be matched with the external super inductive power supply PSU-1250/1000 and the valve output stage TUBE-1012/1006.

The Booster is a feature designed to reproduce the lower range of frequencies with power and control. It works as a custom equalisation, increasing the gain around 50Hz to provide a richer and more full-bodied sound. The 50Hz frequency has been chosen since lower frequencies are more difficult to obtain with small speakers.

 

The Booster provides a richer and more full-bodied sound, for better realism and dynamic. It’s particularly useful in case of speakers that require more energy in the bass frequencies, for night-time listening at lower volumes, or even to achieve a more realistic headroom. The Booster is completely by-passed when set to OFF, applied to 50% when set to 1, applied to 100% when set to 2.

Multifunctional remote control included
