Ultimate Integrated amps
Agree on a pass int-250 - great integrated, especially considering its price. The new Accuphase E-800 has been just released. I don't think anybody in US had a chance to hear it. But the specs are quite impressive for class A integrated. I am very... 
Amp / Pre-Amp for Sonus Faber Serafino
OP, I currently have SF Amati Tradition that replaced the SF Serafinos.For about 10 month I was driving Serafinos with latest Gryphon Diablo 300 integrated. Great integrated, dynamics, micro details, timber. But it requires careful cables match - ... 
Pass Labs int 250 and int 60
I compared both in my system and currently have int-250. Even so the sound signature is the same, the INT-250 is more extended at top and bottom and deliver more relaxed presentation with slightly bigger soundstage than INT-60. Read reputable and ... 
Luxman 590axii vs Pass Labs int 60
It would be great if Luxman could release a reference class A amplifier like Accuphase is about to do soon (E-800) . Unfortunately for many of us the Accuphase pricing in US is over the roof. So with Luxman pricing model something like Accuphase E... 
Pass Labs int 250
After many integrated ( plinius hiato, plinis 9200, mark levinson 508, Gryphon diablo 300, gamut 150LE, krell, marantz pm10, jeff rowland 500, luxman 509x, accuphase E-470) I'm now using pass int-250.Is that the best one?, I don't think so. There ... 
Upgrading form Pass integrated amplifier to a better one
br3098,  yes speakers are very important component, but I disagree that its all about speakers. With a lot of trials and errors for the last 15 years, I now understand that before signal gets to the speakers it has to go thru the whole chain of co... 
Upgrading form Pass integrated amplifier to a better one
Lak, yes, my personal opinion that cables should be considered as components. Cables synergy with gear is very important. I wish I would realized it much sooner in my journey. I sold/traded quite a few great amplifiers because of the poorly matche...

Enjoying my Audience Au24Sx Speaker Cables, wondering how much better are the Front Row?
If you like the AU24 SX, the Front Rows are big step up. Yes the present a feeling that you are in the front row, yes they are reveling, but no signs of harshness or glare, very natural and most important (fro me) relaxed.The bass, highs, mids are... 
Enjoying my Audience Au24Sx Speaker Cables, wondering how much better are the Front Row?
Just saw your post. I had audience  au24 SX  and after much consideration and talking to audience I decided to buy them without auditioning. The front row is like au24sx n steroids. Better everything, treble, micro details, bass is tight but layer... 
First listening to AU24 SX I'm a little disappointed
I had the AU24 SX speaker cables and they were great. No grain, highs are sweet and airy and bass is terrific. I decided to upgrade to Front row and these speaker cables equal to component upgrade. Give some time for audience to settle and make su...
