Disappointment with Pass Labs - I'm looking for something else
it's the cornwall III 
My Long List of Amplifiers and My Personal Review of Each!
hi Jay I'm thinking of replacing my Pass XA30.8 with an X250.8. as I find the Xa30.8 lacking in impact and detail. It sounds very warm, yes.I also have an xp12 that I don't like since it takes a lot of detail and push from dCS Bartok.but the doubt...

Thanks for your recommendation but I don't live in the USA.

I've never heard Cary Audio. On the other hand, I have listened to the MC275 with my Cornwalls and I did not like it at all. In fact, listen to the MC275 alongside the XA30.8.

(i.e. throw a very deep front to back soundstage with 3d presence, and at least with my D9s control them with force) Thanks for your extensive response.I did not say that the Xa30.8 lacks depth. I have said that the soundstage is closed. That i...

looking for a way to "fix" those shortcomings with electronics that will somehow compensate. Maybe I have not explained myself well or you do not understand it. At no time have I said that I want to solve the definition of the COrnwall III with...

I really appreciate every answer.I get many responses "the problem is the Klipsch".It seems that to some the Pass XA30.8 and XP-12 are perfect, and since they are, do I have to change my speakers to match my Pass well?Let me clear things up:The pr...

Creo que puede encontrar Luxman demasiado cálido y falto de ese último detalle, por lo que dice sobre su Pase. Los amplificadores Vitus pueden ser buenos para usted, si están disponibles en su país. Superan algunos de los aspectos negativos que ...

A few days ago I am testing a stage of professional power that I have had for many years, a Crown XLS202, in fact I rescued it from a local, it did not work and I fixed it.It's a cheap 200W amp, it's not very good but when I put it on with the Cor...

InI totally agree with you. I think that if you like the sound of valves, you have to buy valves and not an imitation. I think that with the XA series with XP it remains in an indefinite field, which is not just one thing or the other.

This happens with First Watt. I built myself a couple of ACAs and it is.But on the XA30.8 it seems to me that it donima the second harmonic and when it leaves class A, it dominates the third.In fact, from how the Xa30.8 sounds, it looks like a sec...

Yes, it is true that Klipsch are not high definition speakers. but this should not hide that the XA30.8 has a forcefulness problem and especially the XP12 have a resolution problem. 
Disappointment with Pass Labs - I'm looking for something else
Yes, I know.Another option is to see how the XA30.8 behaves when it comes out of Class A to go to A / B if I decide to switch from much less efficient speakers. I don't know if I read one day that Nelson commented that he went from accentuating th...

If you do go with the Pass X250 and AR Ref 5 pre ... take a close look at the gain matching. I have Pass XA 60.8, AR Ref 6 and Avantgarde UNO speakers.  The I love the sound of my setup but I can’t turn the volume control past 5 without blowing ...

I would very much like to be able to test the Xa25. You in the USA have it very easy because the manufacturers offer demos at home but in Europe it is not like that.The wiring is not the problem.
