1.5 megahits
 
I see where www.passlabs.com and www.passdiy.com
enjoyed 1,576,000 hits last month.

Who says high end is dead?

I wish very much that you translate those hits into sales.
 
I would love not only to see Pass, Inc prospering, I would like to see a number of high end manufacturers prospering.

I was disappointed to hear on the news tonight that the record industry sales are declining.

As to Passlabs and Passdiy, I would say that these are prime examples of "enlightened management"

Or should I say "One and Only" management?

Congratulations on hitting the mark of 1.5 million hits

Warm regards

Ken

Guess I better go and see what all the fuss is about. :)

Congrats Nelson, and good on you for taking the selfless and non-conceited direction that is indeed your trademark.

Eric.

BTW - Any idea of how many Pass Amp clones out there ?.

Ken, in my opinion the music industry is getting what it deserves. For too long now it seems that the popular music labels have taken people with basically zero talent and manufactured them into "stars"... ok, who said Kelly Osbourne? While it may be a fine marketing tactic to teenagers, treating the adult public like tasteless morons was always going to catch up with the industry. I'm not saying that there are no talented musicians out there selling a lot of records (oops, I mean CDs), but there ARE a lot who people who are "marketed" into that position. What a shame so many people with awesome talent are cast aside simply because they don't fit the appropriate "mould".

Today even the average teenager is becoming more savy; why would they want to go out and buy a CD when they recognise it as basically c@#p that will be totally unfashionable within the next 2 weeks.

Just my 2 cents worth ... maybe I'm just getting "old" ... It's the kids of today tell you, THE KIDS OF TODAY!! :geezer:

If anybody should prosper in the High-end community, Nelson Pass gets my vote.

I love his attitude and respect his engineering. I'm currently using an Aleph 3 with my DIY ESL speakers and its a nice little amp.

And since I can build myself most of his commercial offerings, I don't even blame him for those outrageous prices (42,000 EURO for XA-200);)

I always wondered who buys the X Series X1000? Who needs that much power for speakers? Also, how do people handle the 2400W maximum power consumption? (well.. I guess if you can afford the amp, you can afford the power bill) What is the maximum power consumption for the XA200?

I can appreciate the craftsmanship that goes into each Pass Labs amplifier, and if you afford the amplifier and can't build it, then go for it. I don't blame him for the high prices either, it is a niche market.

Well done Nelson, I keep looking and dreaming, but unfortunately for both you and I that's all:( :) :)
