My Long List of Amplifiers and My Personal Review of Each!
whitecamaross OPThanks for your feedback. I owned the X350.5 for about a year and now own the X250.8 for last 3 months or so and like the X250.8 a little better. They are close but at lower/normal levels I find the 250.8 a little more dynamic an... 
New Rega Planer 8 (P8) Turntable - Apheta 2 Cartridge Combo - Thoughts
Great info... maybe I gave up too early. I don’t doubt that. As far as my room 1/2 room is over garage and other half over my basement. Yes maybe that contributed.i had it on a Solid Tech Hybrid Rack with Silent Running Audio OHIO Class Isolation ... 
My Long List of Amplifiers and My Personal Review of Each!
Thanks - I ordered new speakers at Thanksgiving and should be delivered to me next week so I’m all set with speakers. I traded my Magico S5 Speakers for Magico S5 MK II version and I’m pretty excited. Also, my DAC/Server combo is fantastic as well... 
New Rega Planer 8 (P8) Turntable - Apheta 2 Cartridge Combo - Thoughts
Lol.. Great point and I agree but the reason is mainly because its the only thing in audio where what I read and hear does not equal my experience. There is no way my digital is that good. Trust me - it is outstanding but it can’t be that much bet... 
Upgrade? Luxman M-900u and C-900u from Pass X250.8 - Simaudio Evolution P-8
How is that XP22? I see one popped on the gon yesterday but sort of pricey at $7700? Is that a good price? I was thinking $6k more in line but not sure. I am leaning toward the Lux combo but the X250.8 and XP22 might be a cool and much cheaper opt... 
New Rega Planer 8 (P8) Turntable - Apheta 2 Cartridge Combo - Thoughts
Yes that is what I wanted to be competitive or maybe not even but rather good or different enough to enjoy the difference but there was such a drop off that nothing about it was fun. I mean its a pain in the neck verse clicking my iphone but still...

Hello whitecamaross,I own a Pass Labs X250.8 amp and Simaudio Moon Evolution P-8 preamp and was considering trading these and cash for Pass X350.8 and ARC REF 6 preamp and my dealer strongly recommended for same money to get the Luxman M-900u and ... 
Upgrade? Luxman M-900u and C-900u from Pass X250.8 - Simaudio Evolution P-8
4425Those are some serious other pre's you tried. That buttresses what other have told me. They have said it is a legit reference level product that competes with the real big money crowd? Your feedback is appreciated. How is the resolution and ... 
New Rega Planer 8 (P8) Turntable - Apheta 2 Cartridge Combo - Thoughts
Misguided?? I mean you could say wrong or erroneous but misguided? How does that make sense? I got good advice and followed directions? Sure, I am sure if it was more broken in it would have been much better but how much better? 10 times better, 1...

Hey Guys - so I like my gear but always like to play around and try new stuff. I do like my Pass Labs X250.8 and thought the X350.8 would have more power? Not sure it is needed but got a strong trade offer on it so was thinking about getting more ...

New Rega Planer 8 (P8) Turntable - Apheta 2 Cartridge Combo - Thoughts
Honestly I don't think its as much about the Rega as to do with my Digital. I wish I could have you hear my digital so I could get an honest, objective 3rd party opinion. My digital just vaporized the Rega. There was nothing even remotely close bu...
