Stefano,

I have done a search on the topic:

Stereophile review of XA 160

And I have the November 2003 Stereophile at home.

Regards.

Alain.

He is referring to the article in the current issue of Absolute Sound. Here is the table of contents for the issue with the XA160:

The stereophile review is online also:

I think absolute sound does not do bench tests but I hope NP has fixed the glitch on their XA160 review sample. I remember Stereophile found their unit did not output the full 160w class A.

Seemed clear enough to me.
I think the pertinent point is that he traded in his X-600s for XAs.
'Nuff said.
