Default X260.8's .....making music

After a 30 plus year hiatus I'm back with Nelson Pass, just received and got up and running a pair of X260.8. Right out of the box, very musical, no complaints

With Revel's? (That looks like their base in your pic). Did the PASS replace another power source with same speakers and source(s), or is this an all-new system?

I have INT-250 with B&W 803D2s and am delighted. Sound matters most, but company attitude and interface with customers is almost just as important. Of what brands I've owned over 30 yrs, PASS has been the most exceptional in this regard.

Congratulations,
Pass is great. I also have Int-250, but upgrade bug is razing his voice, and thinking about new xp-12 preamp and amp from pass. Did you compare the 260.8 with 250.8 or 350.8?
What is your preamp?
Thank you.

yes and in the end there is doubt in my mind that the 260's are the sweet spot in the 'X' series line up.
