If you are here reading this, you probably know about Pass Labs,
but in case you don’t -- Pass Labs is an American manufacturer
of some of the very finest audio power amplifiers,
preamplifiers, phono stages, and speakers ever produced in
world. Pass Labs is almost exclusively focused on traditional
two-channel analog products with almost no multi-channel
home-theatre products. Pass Labs products are built in the small
town of Foresthill, which is about a 45-minute drive from
Sacramento, in northern California, USA. PASS products are built
by hand, in America, with the best raw components on earth and
to the most exacting quality control standards.
Pass Labs has just released its new flagship three-chassis
preamp, the XP-30. Reno Hi-Fi is offering generous trade-in
allowances for other preamps to make upgrading to the XP-30
easy. And with our in-home demo program you can experience the
magnificent XP-30 in your own system and know that the XP-30 is
right for you. While the XP-30 is a superlative product, Pass’
list price of $16,500 is not out-of-reach, especially with a
trade-in. Reno Hi-Fi has already helped many people own and
enjoy the XP-30, and all who’ve heard the new three-chassis
preamp have found its fantastic performance absolutely gorgeous.
In early 2012, Pass Labs will be releasing their ultra-monster
two-chassis-mono (four-chassis for stereo) power amplifiers: the
Xs-150 and Xs-300. The Pass Labs summary deign theory essay
about the Xs amps is located on the News page of this website.
The Pass Labs Xs-150 is 150 WPC into 8-ohms and the list price
is $65,000. The Pass Labs Xs-300 is 300 WPC into 8-ohms and the
list price is $85,000.
