Default Pass Labs Class A amps = Fluid Music Delivery ...

I've trying to characterize what I am hearing with the Pass Labs XA100.5 amps and I think I've found it. There's a flow to the music that's less nervous than my 911's. The music seems so effortless. My TAD CR-1's probably never sounded so good.

Great to hear, Joe. I bet the all Pass amplification sure does do a great job.

Joe : That is great !
High musicality means fluid to me. Lack of tension. Stressless. While keeping high levels of dynamics.
If you got that, you have everything !

Joe, effortless music reproduction is a cool thing once you hear it within a setup. I cannot wait to hear your thoughts when you move the Pass amps to the C1's.


No rush, though.....well, maybe a little. Haha, just kidding.
