Mike:

I received my XA160.5s and XP30 yesterday and am in love. Talk about detail, warmth and texture! Pass has it all in spades. I'll post pics and more detail in another thread but, these amps are ridiculous!

I would try the PCs directly into the wall as well. I, like you, am currently using the WW SEs. Very nice cord for the money. Keep us posted as you play with your gear.

Hi Michael,

I knew you'd like the Pass setup. I am very glad you are happy! They make superbly musical gear! Enjoy.

Davkj...it may be too early to tell but how hot does your amp get? Does it heat up your room at all? I've been considering a similar set up.

In my experience with my XA100.5s, PCs provided a significant improvement, especially with bass. Connecting to a power conditioner vs direct to the wall didn't offer any noticeable improvements.
