The XSP-1 Gen 2 combines a pure, all-analog, audiophile topology with an advanced digital control system. This maintains the purit...y of the audio signal, while offering advanced features, resolution, and accuracy far surpassing traditional designs. The XSP-1 Gen 2 delivers an uncompromised listening experience in Reference Playback mode by totally avoiding single ended to balanced conversions from the signal path. Combined with instrumentation grade relays for input selection and high voltage, and a digitally-controlled analog resistor ladder network with 0.5dB per step resolution for volume, the XSP-1 Gen 2 maintains signal integrity and near perfect channel matching - even at very low listening levels. In terms of fine-tuning the sound of your system, most audiophile preamps are "take it or leave it", offering little or no control over the interaction between your speakers and room. Not the XSP-1 Gen 2. It includes precision contour controls that allow you to tailor the high frequency and low frequency response of your system for perfect results in your listening environment. For absolute neutrality, the contour controls operate by switching networks of precision discrete tuning components in and out, and can, of course, be completely bypassed. The XSP-1 Gen 2 packs a long list of features that make it the ideal centerpiece for your high performance audio system. It includes analog bass management for perfect integration with 2.1 or 2.2 systems, as well as a high current, load-invariant headphone amplifier, an external signal processor loop, trigger inputs and outputs, and a full-featured milled aluminum remote control. A large VFD display shows system status messages and provides visual confirmation of all actions and settings. Unlike many other preamps these days, the XSP-1 includes a truly stunning and extremely quiet phone preamplifier with inputs for both moving magnet and moving coil cartridges (with user-selectable loading) read more

When you plug the Little Ego into your USB port, it replaces the mediocre sound card in your computer, transforming your computer ...into a complete audiophile sound system. The built-in high-performance headphone amp makes your headphones sound their absolute best, and the Little Ego has all the performance features you'd expect to see in a big audiophile DAC, including an asynchronous USB input, a choice of three digital filters to fine tune the way it sounds, and a blend mode to make your headphones sound more like regular speakers. Advanced engineering, and precision components held to tight tolerances, enable the Little Ego to deliver impressive specs - like THD+N < 0.006%, a S/N > 106 dB, and a frequency response that's ruler flat from 10 Hz to 20 kHz. The Little Ego's rugged all-metal construction and tough black anodized finish will keep it looking good for years, and the easy to read LED indicators let you see at a glance what sample rate you're listening to. Of course, what really counts in an audiophile component is the way it sounds - and the Little Ego sounds superb. You owe it to yourself to hear just how good computer audio can be.

The Emotiva Stealth SP-1 Input Selector and Phono Preamp is a versatile component designed to increase the flexibility and input c...apabilities of our Stealth DC-1, or any preamp, DAC, or pre/pro with an available unbalanced analog line level input. The output of the Stealth SP-1 connects to an analog line level input on your preamp or DAC, and replaces that input with three new line level inputs and a very high quality precision phono preamp. The phono preamp supports both moving magnet and moving coil cartridges, and includes user-selectable load impedance on the moving coil input. When set for moving coil cartridges, the phono preamp follows the RIAA equalization curve within +/-0.25 dB from 20 Hz to 20 kHz, with a S/N of 68 dB (A-weighted), and THD <0.08% from 20 Hz to 20 kHz. When set for moving magnet cartridges, the phono preamp follows the RIAA equalization curve within +/-0.12 dB from 20 Hz to 20 kHz, with a S/N of 88 dB (A-weighted), and THD <0.03% from 20 Hz to 20 kHz. Line level analog inputs are controlled by precision switching relays which add virtually no noise or distortion. When used with our Stealth DC-1, the DC-1 remote control operates both devices; a separate compact IR remote control is also provided for operating the SP-1 by itself. Note: The Stealth SP-1 doesn't include its own level control, and so should be used with a preamp or DAC which includes a volume control, or with the Emotiva Control Freak passive volume control Note: Since the Stealth SP-1 is an analog device, with an analog output, it can only be used with DACs or preamps that include at least one available line level unbalanced analog input - like the Emotiva Stealth DC-1.
