Pass Labs XP-17 Phono Stage

XP17 uses the new-shielded low noise toroid and input filter module, like the XP-12. The power supply has an extra stage of RC filtering.  We have lower radiated and mechanical noise.

The XP17 has an all-new input circuit that is symmetrical and lower in noise and distortion with greater drive capability. Noise is the most prominent part of THD+N in the first section of a phono stage. By lowering noise we get better resolution and dynamics.

Designed with a split EQ network like the XP 25 and XS Phono that is more accurate and can handle greater signal levels.

The secondary stage runs a higher bias output stage with auto bias.

The numerous loading options from the XP-15 are all still available and three gain settings to accommodate low output MC to MM cartridges.

“Exceptional resolution and dynamics. Stringed instruments sounded divine with richness and fullness, not just details only for the sake of details–the natural timbre of those strings played the prominent role; they were brought to life. Exquisite.” Karl Sigman

“I’ve been impressed with Pass Labs XP-17 phono preamplifier’s sound quality and musicality, its excellent build quality, its non-fussy demeanor in interfacing with various audio system equipment combinations I’ve tried, and its very useful adjustability features that allowed me to get excellent performance out of the moving-coil, moving-iron, and moving-magnet phonograph cartridges” / Jeff Day

“It is as richly colorful, as deeply emotionally communicative and as powerful as the recording that is played. Oh and it has the best bass that I have heard from a phono preamp so far.” Christiaan Punter

“It’s really rather difficult to think there are phono stages that eclipse the XP-17, because honestly, I don’t know how my vinyl playback system could sound any better.”
