Pass XA160 Festival du Son de Montreal 2004

The "Festival du Son de Montreal" is taking place for 3 days.
It took me 4 hours to walk the 13 floors in the Four Points and Delta Hotels

I had the privilege to listen to a pair of PassLabs XA160 yesterday
driven by a Preamp X1, wouahhhh!!!

Only a few tube amplifiers or the last Innersound satisfied me to such a high level.

Nelson, the PassLabs XA160 is a marvelous thing.

PS: Back home with the A75 and my Martin Logan, an old vinyl of Louis Armstrong made us enjoy a powerfull trumpet ; and I was so satisfied by my DIY A75, the next step can only be a PassLabs XA160...

I also had the privilege to listen to these amps :)

There was one amp at the room entry that was open so I had a chance to look inside. While nobody was watching, I removed some parts for my next project…

Heatsink are nice, thanks :D

I think you have been working on you electronic to much..again.

Right, the amp is super cool or cold and steely looking but not sexy. Check out sexy
