I would like to say thanks to Mr. Pass and his company for allowing people who got there order in on the first day at the lower price, to get the items at that price. This is my first time trying something like this and figured 100 bucks for what he was offering was too good to pass up. If the price was 200 I would not have been able to try this. Not because of the price itself, but since this my first attempt at something like this (where a mistake on my part could ruin everything), I am not sure if I would have been willing to attempt this as first go around.

I told my wife about his post and that he would honor that “wrong” price she was sort of taken back that a company would do that. I have always heard great things about his designs and am very happy that I may be able to get a Pass product in my equipment rack.

I will probably need some help in trying to locate cases and power supplies for this unit but from what I read on this forum there are enough folks that would be willing to offer advice and help.

So, thanks again to Pass Labs.

James

Here is a thought. You guys who are getting the lower price could consider a contribution to DIYAudio. I owe Nelson and this board huge thanks for the support and learning over the years. I try and kick a little to the board when I can as it is a service we all use and it is easy to take for granted. Tha includes things like shared designs of world class gear and free distribution of those ideas.

For those complaining about the price or just ungrateful , you can try John Broskie's Phono Aikido, QuangHao's PhonoEnd, Peter Daniel's MC Phono, or RJM's PhonoClone, all of them much cheaper.

Either way, even without the article update, it's a screaming f'ing deal from one of audio's most talented and generous men. Thank you Nelson.

I have to upload from my camera onto a different pc on
the home network because last year the usb/software went
wacky on mine. No amount of reloading could fix it. So, I've
been loading on my wifes pc and networking it over.
Well, last month I botched my wifes pc. It thinks there is a
new device, the keyboard. To load it requires supervisor
access. Well, if I can't type in my supervisor password, wifes account
doesn't have a password, I can't load the drivers!! Thought I could
copy pics to a thumb drive, oh yeah!!! Will not recognize it!!
This could take a while. Could try reloading her Xp.

Size-wise, how are the Pearl 2 boards versus Pearl 1?

And speaking of which, due to procastination, I have a set of PCBs and FETs for Pearl 1 but never got around to ordering the remaining parts. So now I'm wondering if I should just sell/give away what I've got and go for Pearl 2?
