What are the weak points of Pass amps and pre-amps ?
Mitch2,I recently owned the GamuT 250i mono’s. Got them from Kyomi Audio. Awesome guy. I ended up trading them to Scott Walker for my Speakers. Really nice amps. I owned the Clayton 30 and 100 before. I really liked the Clayton’s a lot at the time...

jetter Why because rather than talking theory or some specs or quoting some review I actually take the chance and step up and buy the stuff that interests me? Then I sometimes come on here when I am not sure about something and ask for help or adv...

Upgrade? Luxman M-900u and C-900u from Pass X250.8 - Simaudio Evolution P-8
Actually Luxman had all kinds of problems with the former Distributor and that was why they made a change and took it back in house. Now they have a new person in the US that works for them or is contracted to work for them or the like hence the L...

Audio Research Ref 10 vs 40th Anniversary preamp
Was wondering if any of you guys could tell me what you think a good price on a ARC 40th Anniversary pre is? At what price is it too much and am I better off just moving to a newer ARC pre model? Is it better or as good as a 6? They seem to be aro...
