    Pass XP27 arrives at Suncoast Audio



    After hearing the new Pass XP17, which blew us away for the money, the XP27 was a must buy!

    Looks great, Mike. Is that the power supply for the XP27 on the lower shelf?

    I'm a member of the SF Audio Society (aka SFAS) and a lot of the members own Pass Labs components. Its probably the single-most popular brand.

    Yes, that’s the separate PSU. The XP17 is a one box. We had the XP17 and just couldn’t believe our ears for the price. This takes the XP17 to a whole new level with front adjustability and a separate PSU.

    The folks at Pass were super excited about the XP17/27. Now I know why!

    I used to own the XP-25 - excellent phono stage.

    Does the XP-27 now have a memory of the settings of each input, or do you have to adjust the settings each time you change input?

    I replaced my XP25 with the new XP27. Very worthwhile upgrade. Lower noise, more music.
