The P-1000 is an innovative Class-A line preamplifier powered by a new proprietary Six Gain Stage design. Featuring an Optical ALPS Encoder volume control and the best audio grade components to bring your system to a whole new level. The exclusive Gold Note Ultra-Balanced design featuring Six Single Gain stages provides incredible low distortion and extended linear bandwidth for true superior musicality.
P-1000 belongs to a new era of electronics where performance is combined with technology to offer the best possible musical experience: tradition and innovation meet to create a unique preamplifier with crystal clear sound.
Featuring a Triple Linear Transformer power supply and 10 independent stereo inputs, 5 fully balanced XLR, 5 RCA (optionally even a digital input is available on demand). The preamplifier offers a large number of functions: Mono/Stereo selection, Left/Right channel swap, Absolute Phase swap, Booster technology and fine Balance tuning.
To perfectly reproduce even old recordings, the preamplifier can in fact be set into Mono or Stereo mode. It also allows swapping the Left & Right channels to allow the reproduction of inverted recordings as well as the absolute phase swap from 0° to 180°.
For the P-1000 we developed our Booster technology: a feature that will allow you to get the best out of a speaker across a very specific range of low frequencies (the Booster can be completely by-passed).
The preamplifier is easy to control with its large colour display showing all the possible functions, allowing for quick and precise fine adjustments.
To enhance the performance of the P-1000 even further, it can be optionally matched with a external super inductive power supply. Either the PSU-1250/1000 or the valve output stage TUBE-1012/1006.
