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

Jerome: Well said (as always!)

Joe: thrilled to hear that the Pass amps are sounding good. They've always been an object of curiosity for me. Given your comments, they are now on my "must try someday" list.

Cheers

Karl,

The XA100.5's are wonderful amps. They run warm but it's not a deal breaker. Big, wide sound stage. The music just seems a little easier through these amps but the bass is deep, maybe a tiny bit puffy, but full. Very unlike many amps I've heard.
