P10 Dual Monaural Twin-Chassis Phono-Stage

P10 Dual Monaural Twin-Chassis Phono-Stage

The latest introduction to our flagship 10 Series, the P10 phono-stage joins the benchmark L10 and M10 amplifiers, products that have quickly establishhed themselves as an almost universal reference.

They followed in the footsteps of our original P1 phono-stage, a unit that has also long been recognised as THE benchmark for phono performance, by reviewers and end-users alike. But as impressive (and impressively versatile) as the P1 undoubtedly is, the P10 represents a whole new level of sophistication and musical reproduction.

Adopting the twin-chassis configuration common to all 10 Series products, it also introduces an all-new circuit topology and a host of other practical and performance innovations.

  • Twin-chassis design with massive, dedicated power supply and ultra low noise-floor.
  • All-new circuit with three separate gain stages to reduce noise.
  • Two-stage passive EQ.
  • Four independently configurable XLR/RCA phono inputs.
  • Two trans-impedance current sensing MC inputs.
  • Two conventional, fully discrete, voltage sensing MC/MM inputs.
  • Higher gain and finer gain adjustment, with 3dB steps rather than the 5dB increments found on the P1.
  • The same user selectable local/global feedback setting introduced on the L10.
  • Unprecedented range and precision of loading options on voltage inputs.
  • Seven optional EQ curves for EMI, Columbia (LP), Decca (London), Teldec (DGG), NARTB/NAB, Capitol (AES) and Philips.
  • Improved user interface, including handy IR remote control for all main functions (and switching EQ).
  • Improved cartridge gain/loading wizard to aid set up.

The P10 might be an analog component, but the numbers tell the tale: a noise floor that’s 5dB lower than the already ghostly quiet P1; 45 to 78dB of gain in 3dB steps (that’s 8dB more than the P1); four independent phono inputs and as many as eight different record replay EQ curves. Throw in the remotely selectable Neumann pole for all EQ curves, local/global feedback, stereo/mono switching and high-pass filter and you have one of the user-friendliest phono-stages available. The display even changes colour to remind you when you have an optional EQ curve engaged.
