I haven't heard them together either, but I think you're onto something; however, I would think Pass's class A amps, either the X-1/30A combo, or the new INT-30A integreated would be the way to go. A buddy of mine just purchased the Nines, and we had auditioned them with Luxman's Class A integrated, and it was a great combo. They don't need the kind of power the 250.5 puts out, and Pass's class A amps are killer. I had the INT-150 and it was a great sounding amp, but maybe a bit analytical for the Nines. It had a class A bias for the first 30 watts, so maybe not, though.
