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. The very best of audio technology is applied to deliver an outstanding musical experience, with incredibly low distortion and extended linear bandwidth.
The P-1000 MkII features a design with three independent linear power supplies and 8 stereo inputs: 4 fully balanced XLR and 4 RCA. In addition, it also offers plenty of advanced functions: Mono/Stereo selection, Left/ Right channel swap, Absolute Phase swap, Booster technology, and fine Left/ Right balance.

P-1000 MKII DELUXE

The P-1000 MkII DELUXE features military-grade anti-noise coils and capacitors on the six output stages that are also clamped into place with custom copper clips.

TOTAL CONTROL

To play old recordings most faithfully, the preamplifier can be set in mono, and it allows for Left/ Right channel swap making it easy to reproduce inverted recordings. The absolute phase swap (0°/180°) can be useful when integrating the preamp into your system.
The Booster technology is designed to help you drive speakers that require extra power, providing greater energy in a very specific range of low frequencies – the feature is completely bypassed when set to OFF.
The large colour display of the preamp shows all functions and allows for quick and precise fine adjustments, whether using the SKC knob or the IR remote control, making this preamplifier easy to use.

UPGRADES

The P-1000 MkII can be equipped with dedicated external units to enhance the performance even further: the TUBE-1012 and TUBE-1006, external class A tube output stages, and the PSU-1250 and PSU-1000 – super inductive external power supply.

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.
