Default TAS on PASS

No this is not a Dr. Seuss story...

I received August's The Absolute Sound (issue 163 page 19) and they had a sidebar on the announcement regarding Nelson licensing his Super Symmetry patient to TI. I know Nelson mentioned this already, but it got me thinking.

It is starting to perhaps make sense why Nelson was experimenting with symmetrical chip amps a few months ago; Proof of concept for TI?

Interesting to think about what is perhaps coming down the pipe.

Actually no. I was simply having fun pointing out that there are
interesting things you can do with chip amps that are not on
the application notes.

I'm sure Nelson you have inside knowledge that's under NDA. It's fun for the rest of us to keep guessing.

I bet it is for their DSP chips or some cool BB opamp then. I just hope it is a cool audio product we can tinker with.

After seeing the chip SuSy variant schematic some time ago i wondered how something like that would have been like with TDA amp modules 15 years ago.
Interesting how concepts need to grow to become reality. I wonder if audio evolution will be just as interesting the next 25 years.
I'll have the nachos and salsa now, please.

TAS also said they will have reviews forthcoming for the XA160 and x600.5.

Cannot wait, I like TAS's perspective and the way they review equipment. I bet the bias settings are double checked this time.

I just know this tidbit will fit in somewhere:

"X600.5 was awarded 'Outstanding Vacuum Tube Power
Amplifier' by Super AV magazine"

In China, by the way.

See,
they clone them so fast they're already manufacturing the ones who haven't been designed yet !

Let's be kind and assume that there was simply some difficulty in translation.
I hope.
