Reference quality meets remote-control convenience in this do-all preamp.
Step up from your multi-channel AVR or processor and discover just how amazing your stereo sources can be with our USP-1 preamplifier. When treated to a proper stereo signal path, using the highest-quality components, you’ll be stunned at the rich tonal quality and amazing detail you get from your CD and phono sources.
Did we say phono? Yes, we did! Rediscover your vinyl with the USP-1’s high-performance moving magnet and moving coil phono preamp stages. Or, if you’re wondering just how much more detailed those CDs can sound, the USP-1 is a great match for our ERC-2 Differential Reference CD player.
Best of all, you won’t have to give up convenience to get reference-quality sound. The USP-1 ships with our milled aluminum remote control, offering full functionality and easy integration with a full Emotiva system.
