Who has heard the new Pass XA25?
Isn't XP10 a preamp? 
Who has heard the new Pass XA25?
Thanks david_ten for your suggestion. I had a great conversation with Terry and decided to get the XA-25. I am convinced it will be a great match with my DIs and can’t wait till I actually can sit down and enjoy the music. After all, this is what ... 
Who has heard the new Pass XA25?
The XA30.8 is my other consideration and it has little more power.  Doing my research however I noticed that the sound of the 25 is slightly preferred over the 30.8 by those who know both. 
Who has heard the new Pass XA25?
Does the XA25 have enough power to drive the Tekton DIs comfortably?  I am considering it as a replacement for my digital amplification.  I am planning to use it with Mytek Brooklyn DAC+ which serves also as my preamp and a phono stage.  Any thoug...

Cerious Technologies NEW Graphene Cables
About a month and half ago ozzy started this "graphene" thread which definitely got my attention.  I've been in the process of redoing my system for a while and after getting the awesome KEF Blade 2 speakers to complete it, I thought about upgradi... 
Blues, Jazz, Rock Violinists?
One of the best violinists, both electric and acoustic in the 80's was Michael Urbaniak. Still have about 10 of his vinyl LPs. Billy Bang's style was highly influenced by Urbaniak's sound. 
Gershman Black Swans
Just noticed this thread about Black Swans. I own a pair since last summer and couldn't be happier about it. These are definitely the best speakers I ever had in my system and I've had some good ones. To me they are very musical and smooth soundin...
