In PassLabs we are constantly working on and listening to new circuits and components, increasing our knowledge and seeking better sound and enhanced product reliability. That time has come for the XP-32.
The new design uses uses double shielded low noise torroids in a true dual mono topology for the gain channels and another transformer, linear power supply dedicated to the control architecture. The use of three fully independent power- supplies in the control chassis results in dramatically lower radiated noise and far better THD+Noise figures in the gain stages. Residual circuit noise becomes paramount at low signal levels. By going to extreme lengths to lower noise we enjoy better resolution and dynamics in the music.
