I use Pass for so long and is great.

price / performance without comparison. (x250.5 - x350.5 - xa100.5 - xa160.8)

with Pass preampli vor my taste is better vs ARC ref5se. The pre Octave HP700 is one altermative.

In the last time I have listened GrandiNote: pre Domino with the monos Demone: well Grandinote wins hands down.

lbefore listen.

Having installed them along with remote turn-on AND SR BLUE fuses all is well and good! Boy are they heavy!!!

I'm envious - I got me a XA30.8 but plan to upgrade eventually. Honestly though this little amp sounds much more powerful than it's rating.

Did you purchase a new air conditioning unit to go along with them?

If you're asking me Bill the answer is no, they (260.8's) are no where as warm as you may be lead to believe.
