Pass Labs vs ARC

Good Holidays to everyone.

Anybody have enough direct experience with the Ref 5 SE vs the XP25 to offer an opinion?

Also, any general opinions on ARC vs Pass would be appreciated as well.


The Ref 5se is a line stage while the Pass XP25 is a phono stage. A better comparison would probably be to the ARC Ref Phono 2se.
Thank you, I meant to write Ref Phono 2se.
