Emotiva Stealth SP-1 Phono Stage
Emotiva SP-1 is designed for DC-1 or your current DAC or analog preamp to drastically boost flexibility and input capabilities.
Stealth SP-1 can connect to any analogue preamp or passive level control but specially complements Stealth DC-1 DAC. When paired with the DC-1, the two comprise a modular system providing three analogue line level inputs, a phono input and a full range of digital inputs – two Coax S/PDIF inputs, Toslink and AES/EBU and USB input.
Precision switching relays add virtually zero noise or distortion to the line level inputs. Front panel input selector buttons with blue halo illumination. Premium quality precision phono preamp facilitates both moving magnet and moving coil cartridges.
DC-1 provides a precision low noise volume control and the full unit is operated by the supplied remote control and grants performance matching the finest analogue and digital separates. Stealth SP-1 requires a DAC or preamp with minimum one available line level unbalanced analogue input.
Line Level Inputs
Line level analog inputs are switched via precision control relays. This signal path is wholly passive and introduces virtually no extra noise or distortion to the analogue signal. Impedance is determined solely by the source device.
Integration with DC-1
Emotiva Stealth SP1 integrates with DC-1 DAC to form a modular analogue and digital preamp and includes its own discrete compact IR remote control.
Premium construction is employed for long-lasting reliable service. It features gold plated solid brass RCA connectors and solid aluminum front panel with “stealth” styling. The solid steel case grants superior strength and electrical shielding. Convenient 1U half-width case enables mounting side by side with a DC-1in a conventional panel rack with the optional mounting kit.
