Onkyo Reference P-3000R Preamp/DAC

Plenty of Power with Sublime Sensitivity

The P-3000R is a stereo preamp for the 21st century with a timeless sleek design and high-tech digital wizardry that will make you wonder if the price tag isn't missing an extra digit or two. Based around a fully analog design, including a solid MM phono stage, the P-3000R is a sweet preamp with an extremely low noise floor and broad dynamic range. Rich sounding with a smooth, sweet tonal balance, excellent extension top to bottom and surprisingly good imaging, the P-3000R on its own would be worth the money, but Onkyo also included an astonishingly good digital section.

"Image specificity and placement are very good...Timbres were colorful, and the unique ring, clatter, and crash of drumskins, metal, and wood were exhilarating...Anyone considering a fully compatible trio of components for under six grand would be well advised to check out these electronics. Not only do they look and feel like a million bucks, they're hard to beat for their combination of features, flexibility, and performance."
– Neil Gader, The Absolute Sound

Digital Inputs
The P-3000R is truly a product of the 21st century offering a variety of digital inputs and full 32Bit/192kHz resolution on every single one of them. Supporting Coax (x2), TosLink (x2) and AES/EBU (x1) as well as a B-style USB input (x1), the P-3000R has a shockingly complete digital section. Digital decoding is done by dual Burr-Brown 32Bit/192kHz PCM1795 DACs, one each per channel. Fully compatible with virtually any resolution output through your computer’s USB port (PC or Mac), the P-3000R ensures your digital music receives as much care as any other digital input. The USB input receiver is a 32Bit/192kHz C-Media CM6631 I/O high-speed converter which feeds the Burr-Brown DACs for maximum resolution and sound quality.

"The analogue inputs of the P-3000R are essentially transparent and allow the character of the source to be clearly present in the performance...The P-3000R is a fantastic combination of conventional technology well implemented and an excellent and insightful set of digital inputs. The expected benefits of upgrading to an amplifier in this class are realised in no uncertain terms. At the same time, the Onkyo offers a step up in performance for all, but the most accomplished digital sources."
– Ed Selley, Tech Radar

Chassis Design
Unlike so many preamps in this price range, the P-3000R's chassis is solid with little resonance and a heft which feels great but also helps keep vibration to a minimum. The faceplate is extruded aluminum with a slim-line design that gives the P-3000R a purposeful and elegant aesthetic. A matching large volume knob and source selector offer a retro look but also eliminate unnecessary complication.

"...the sound had great dynamic swing, with plenty of impact and tight, tuneful bass. The phono stage was impressively quiet...When you consider that you get excellent, versatile digital-to-analog conversion and a fine phono stage as part of the bargain, the true value of this Onkyo combo becomes clear."
– Michael Trei, Sound and Vision

Features:
  • Dual Pre-Amp Outputs
    Two pairs of RCA preamp outputs allow the P-3000R to output the same signal to two devices simultaneously. Connect a subwoofer, a second zone amplifier or even an additional M-5000R power amp for biamping.
  • Separate Digital/Analog Circuitry and Transformers
    Physically separated circuitry and separate transformers for digital and analog processing prevents unwanted interference and reduces noise.
  • Dynamic Intermodulation Distortion Reduction Circuitry (DIDRC)
    Eliminates super-high frequency noise (above 100kHz) which affects the proper functioning of sensitive digital devices and signal clocks, effectively reducing perceptible noise and greatly improving resolution, tonal balance and soundstaging.
  • Phase Locked Loop Ultra-Low Jitter Technology
    Reduces jitter by comparing the input and output phases of the digital signal to create an accurate clock waveform. Enhances precision of digital signal processing and noticeably improves audio quality.
  • Side-mounted Circuit Board Construction
    The P-3000R's circuit boards are affixed to the front, side and rear panels, cushioned by internal struts to prevent chassis vibration from affecting the signal.
