Are Pass Labs amps probably the best ever you can buy ?


I have about 15k to spend on an amp/preamp/integrated amp.

I mostly listen to smooth jazz like Dave Koz, Rippingtons, Brian Culbertson etc.... and loud.

I have yet to hear any amp that comes close to Pass Labs.

Your experiences pls ?

I grew up with JBL Century L100s and I am very close to getting either JBL S3900 or JBL S4700.

They are not talked of much in these threads but I have a thing for JBLs :-)
@cakyol see if you can audition and compare to Jbl 4367. I think you’ll be surprised how much better the 4367 can perform compared to the other speakers in the synthesis range.
What to do with their gear is in their name: Pass.
I had my choices down to two integrated amps, I passed on the PASS INT 250 after hearing the T+A 2500R integrated. It just did everything better and looked better. Even though I really liked it,  I was able to trade the 2500R for their higher end T+A PA300HV Integrated which was used. Outstanding amp for the money, in an entirely different league than the PASS. I recently heard the new Luxman integrated driving the new Wilson Audio Sasha DAW’s...killer amp. I would take the new Luxman or a T+A amp any day over the PASS int 250. 
Pass is great.

I have a Perla Audio integrated that sounds similar to the Pass .8 amps.  The big difference is that the Perla uses 5W at standby vs like 250W for the Pass.  It’s also not covered in giant heat sinks, and is Class AB.

i know some don’t care about this, but after hearing the Perla amp it kind of made the hulking and power hungry Pass amp that’s heavily A biased feel antiquated.
