preamp is now in production. The XP-30 features “slave” outputs and level
controls to make bi-amping or controlling a sub-woofer easy. The sound is
incredibly revealing while at the same time being smooth. And that’s just the
beginning. The blacks are blacker in the sound, imaging is fantastic, and top
and bottom are extended with amazing refinement and control. The XP-30 produces
a life-like emotional connection to the music with artful dynamics and warmth.
Here’s how current owners of the XP-30 describe it:
“A game changer!”
“I didn’t know a preamp could make this much difference.”
“Absolutely the best preamp I’ve ever heard!”
Trade-in’s are welcome, and Reno Hi-Fi
will facilitate a head-to-head comparison between a new PASS preamp and your
present preamp. Please ask for details.
