I recently inserted the INT-250 into my main system. Totally agree with reviewer's comment about resolution/clarity and wall-to-wall soundstaging. Obviously, I'd argue that if one wants more current for demanding speakers, the INT-250, with 250 wpc (8 ohms) would be a good choice (the X250.8 is the sole alternative listed).

Great sonics, and more importantly, great customer service from the folks at PASS.

INT-60 reviewed in the most recent "Stereophile". While the reviewer (HR) loved it, I was surprised by the measurements and what I consider JA's somewhat luke-warm comments. However, it is my opinion that JA has become even more "British-centric" in his comments over the past few years. Almost feel like he and Dudley are trying to single-handedly keep the Brit audio industry viable.

I've read the review too, classic case of measurements vs listening?

I've listened to the 60 and the 250 albeit briefly and it didnot blew my mind, longer session planned.

Did anyone compare the INT-60 to a separate set-up XP-10 or 12 and XA 30.8?

No h/t bypass on the INT-60
Which could be a deciding factor

I will answer my one question:
I tried both set-up, got the XP-12 + XA 30.8.
The INT-60 was my pick after listening to good 10 different set-up (the other top choices were Esoteric F01 and Aurorasound separates)
As I preferred the Pass, decided that I need to try the Pass separated as well.

The separates bring increased soundstage depth and more clarity.

Congrats and thanks for the update. What speakers are you driving with them?

How can one use a headphone amp with the INT-60 since muting it also mutes the preamp outs? (Assuming the speakers are not also playing!)
