About
Advance Acoustic
Advance acoustic was formed after the decision was made in Toulouse France, to create a new French brand with an idea which was both simple and audacious: to design audio equipment, reasonably priced but with faultless musical quality. Speakers were the first products off the production line, with 5 models becoming available.
These were an instant success and received high praise from many French magazines. In 2002, Advance Acoustic added electronics to their product catalogue, while keeping the same simple philosophy, reasonably priced without compromising on sound quality.

Real command center of your hifi system

The new Px1 preamplifier is an absolute reference. Judge instead:

Designed around two monophonic preamplifiers assembled in the same box, our Px1 stereophonic preamp can be qualified as true dual mono, two EI type transformers, shielded by means of mumetal plates, an expensive but very effective solution.

The Px1 is the "nerve center" of your hi-fi system. Although sound quality was our first priority, we wanted our preamplifier to be suitable for all current sources, analog, digital, dematerialized or physical.

Nothing has been forgotten, each entry has been refined with the ultimate goal of obtaining a musical rendition at the best level. The PX1 has nine analog inputs including a balanced input and a phono input configurable MM or MC dual level. The setting of the capacitance of the phono cell is configurable. Digital side, the PX is not left out, it has three digital optical inputs, a coaxial digital input, a USB input B (asynchronous XMOS) and a USB A. The conversion of digital signals is provided by the famous Wolfson WM8740 converter.

These digital inputs are complemented by a proprietary port allowing you to connect the BT direct path adapter X-FTB01.

The signal processing is the most direct (direct path) possible so that its original quality is not altered. The interactive menu of Px1 offers two modes of use, the "Class A" mode or the discrete mode. The "Class A" output is based on a circuit based on bipolar transistors only, in "double cascode" type mounting, offering a performance in terms of distortion gradient close to a very homogeneous and polarized tube assembly in Class A, the "discrete" output is a floor based on a more conventional typology based on a differential input stage JFET and bipolar current mirror with a polarized output class AB, more prone to a distortion in odd harmonics sometimes less appreciated "to the ear, "but sometimes also felt more defined.

The use of the PX1 is particularly easy thanks to a single rotary knob with push for the validation of a choice provides access to input selection, volume adjustments, bass tones, treble, balance, loudness, deactivation automatic shutdown after 30 minutes of inactivity. Finally outputs, your PX1 is as complete as side inputs: a balanced (XLR), an unbalanced (Cinch), a recording (Rec Out), a high-pass output and two outputs for sub-bass. Finally, cherries on the cake, designers have not forgotten the aficionados of listening to the headphones by integrating, under the device, a dual independent adjustment for two headsets gain + 6.0, -4dB and the output impedance 0 or 100Ω ..
