@smodtactical I cant speak for the 60.8 but I did have the 30.8 and the No8. The 30.8 sound better to my ears.

All I can say is this thread went into the crapper. Thank you George, I'm out. Notifications now turned of. 
GaN-based Class D power amps

GaN-based Class D power amps
@georgehifi lol as i said folks people like george are the reason I don't post much.  No George, I'm not calling it a test, it's called a listening comparison, just like I stated. I'm not a professional reviewer George. George wants me to prove ... 
GaN-based Class D power amps
Well folks, like I mentioned earlier in this thread, I have heard the Technics SE-R1 vs the AGD Vivace. I'm not one to put up some long winded post, that is why I don't post that offen, I would rather just listen to music then fight like children ... 
GaN-based Class D power amps
@georgehifi and if you want my brief opinion about the two amps here it is> First, both are great amps. The difference is in the midrange, the SE-R1 does not have the bloom the AGD has. Also, the SE-R1 sounds more thin and sterile, kinda remind...

Cocktail Audio's New and latest X50pro Audiophile Music Streamer/server...Any Love?
@in_shore do the research. the x50 is 5k, double of the x50d. I'm not saying anything about its sound as I sold mine, but to make a blacket statement on a model that is half the cost is a null point.

@in_shore we are talking about the X50pro here, not the X50, two totally different animals 
Pass Labs XA-25 on all the time?
If it is a Pure class A amp like the XA30.8 or XA25, turn in off. These amps pretty much draw full power even when no signal is applied. The heat generated with class A will shorten the life of the parts inside, mostly caps, your electric bill wil...
