Those are standard amps not the XS amps in the Sony display. The only XS amps at CES where in our room.

Default Pass & Sony

Pass and Sony were together at CES 2013 in at least 5 displays

Pass Suite
Ray Kimber's Isomike Suite
Sony had 3 displays of their own with Pass amps

I have a funny suspicion that the hifi site showing the internals of the Xs is getting some unusually heavy traffic I have yet to get it to load again. I even waited 30 seconds.

Default curious

These amps so expensive, how many of them get sold by year. So much of research and time going into it, If the sales are low, Is it worth developing such an expensive gear.

As good an idea as that sounds like : "The new front end is not more complex than the previous design. It still uses cascoded matched Toshiba Jfets (NOS from our large cache) for the input devices which drive complementary Mosfets." Xs Brochure
