    This is an integrated you might want to look into during the process of your trials. The US distributor is a dealer in Nashville but he may have others closer. I've found this reviewer's descriptions over the years to be pretty accurate and...

    Thanks, would you say that the Pass had an airier presentation? Compared to the Boulder 866 I thought the int 250 had a fuller more powerful bass. The 866 was almost too controlled and sounded a bit restrained.

    I have Diablo 300 and Pass Int-250 and I like both with Maggies 3.7. For Pass separate, I would pick XP22 along with X350.8

    The Pass was wonderful with Maggies. I tried the Pass with Maggies for a short time. I mainly used the Pass with Revel Studio2. I also have the Diablo 300 and used it with Maggies in the summer (the tube mono are too hot in my room). I got the best...

    How did the Pass amps work out with your 3.7s? 🤔 I am considering Pass for my 3.7s but the Diablo 300 also seems interesting. So far I have compared the int 250 against a Boulder 866 and Accuphase E800. (Not in my own system thought)

    In my opinion not having an SFP port is a big miss. I have been working on my digital distribution system and adding an optical break has made the most noticeable difference in sound quality.

    Hello Mr Mike.
    Sorry if I said something wrong ,since I'm new to this hobbies.

    Today I auditioned 30.2 with NAT SET monoblock. The voice was so full of body but I still miss some bass and I think it kinda rolled off in high. The equipment separation was good only some albums.

    Then I auditioned Diablo120 with their Mojos(different dealers). I'm amazed with the soundstage, image and how clean they produced them(is that mean they bright?), but instantly I miss the Midrange and full body voice feel of Harbeth and NAT.

    Will Diablo produce better midrange when pair with Harbeth??

    I still waiting to try Luxman next

    Thank You Sir.

Met him 12ths ago in Paris, we got chatting. Lovely man, Italian, prefers speaking English to French even though he lives in Paris. Hah!
