Correct.
Yep, I kind of forgot the fact that the "X" class is A/B I am not sure that the placing of that X250 is the best, though Normally, NP's amps, runs hot like hell

First you must spell the name right.

45 to 50 deg C. on the sinks as a standard.

Oops,

That's what happens when you start typing in the "dark"

We'll fix that typo Master.

Whenever we get a lousy review, we always pop the champagne
and shout, "They spelled the name right!"

Well this time it was a good review and the name got spelt right.

Hi, Ian. I rerouted everything so that I'm now going directly from the
balanced outs on the preamp to the balanced inputs on the Pass Labs X250.
Here's my impressions:

-the midrange and everything above seems to have more presence (I guess
some people might call this better soundstage).. It could be that's it's a
better balance (between lows and highs) than what the bi-amp setup was
giving me. Seems to be more alive. I'd have to say it sounds a little
better. It could also be a real possibility that the McIntosh 150 was not
a good power match. Perhaps the Mac veiled the uppers slightly.

-To present an analogy, with the bi-amp setup it sounded like there was
someone or something in between me and the speaker. I could still hear the
speakers fine. But now, powered only with the Pass and going all passive
it's as if that obstruction has moved out of the way. Maybe not quite so
dramatic, but I do notice a difference.

-there seems to be better separation between the channels. Could be just
because there's better clarity in the Mids and on up.

Yes less is more but it just reconfirmed that one of my next upgrades needs
to be to replace the McIntosh for another Pass X250. I'm always looking
for more.

It seems to happen often.
In the last (June 2005) issue of the Italian Hi-Fi magazine "Suono", in the X250.5 review [do you know?! ;-)] Peter Walker of Quad became "Peter Walzer", a sort of dance... :-(

Yes but they closed the article with a simple " Grazie Nelson." He only cares that they spelled his name correctly.

The publishers photographs of the product are some of the best I have ever seen....

I can almost hear Nelson saying, "What's not to like!"

It looked like a great review, but then I don't read Italian
very well. If it was a bad review, don't tell me.
