The XA30.5 is shipping. There are no other stereo XA
amplifiers planned at this time. We also will be releasing
an integrated amplifier in a matter of weeks.

Thanks for info. But I wish there would be something more powerful , at least 100 watt 8ohm. My current amp (x250.5) may produce better figures in Class A watts than XA30.5.
thanks any way..

I have written elsewhere that it is simply way too costly for Pass
Labs to publish schematics for DIY use at this time, and if we don't
take care of the business, the business will not support DIY efforts
at all.

Both Pass Labs and First Watt depend on dealers and distributors for
sales, and these will not support products that they perceive as
competing with DIY versions of the same thing. Publishing the
schematics is treated as an announcement that the property is free
for commercial cloning, killing the perceived value of the originals.

It's too bad, but we don't have a fix for it. The best we can do is
hold our commercial IP private while simultaneously offering DIY
projects that don't directly correlate to product.

Some DIYers may not be as interested in these because they think
of them as leftovers or cast-offs, which is not the case. We have a
surfeit of really good designs, and we can only commercialize a
fraction of them.

Others are attracted to build clones of successful / expensive
commercial product for the bragging rights - "Yes, this would sell for
$40,000, but I built it myself for $200!"

Both types of DIYers will miss out on the really cool stuff coming up.
