    Re: Kind of Blue UHQR

    I might pass on the 45 as I really enjoy being able to let it play vs the MOFI 45 I have now where you flip after every song. Of course, I’m weak so when the time comes, who knows!?

    Kind of Blue UHQR

    Has anyone else invested in this pressing? I jumped on it early hoping to better my MOFI 45 pressing. Well, I have had it sitting in the corner for a few weeks and decided to open it this morning....

    Re: Attenuators

    I have now spent quite a bit of time with the Rothwell attenuators in my system. To skip to the punch line, they are not coming out. Previously I had indicated that they significantly lowered the...
  6. Re: The newest integrated amplifier from Pass Labs is the pure Class A INT-25.

    I agree. Way too bright. I will likely cover the meter on my X350.8 as well.

    Re: 2021 Trade Shows - who’s going?

    I plan on AXPONA as it is within driving distance. I wore a mask all day for months at work so that isn’t a deterrent to me (even though I hate the them).

    The Rothwell attenuators have finally arrived from England. They are in the system now. I will report back shortly on my impressions. One thing is for sure, they definitely lower the noise floor....

    Try buying pallets. Depending upon where you are in the country, they either aren’t available at all, on allocation, or available at exorbitant prices. Insane inflation and supply chain disruptions...

    Beautiful system that looks very well set up. I spied a Swarm subwoofer system in the room. True full range sound coupled with the big Magico’s. Excellent!

    If I decide that I like them on the source vs the amp, I may need a second set and will reach out to you. Incredibly generous offer!

    Absolutely. That is why this needs to be tested to see if any benefits outweigh the potential degradation.

    Re: Attenuators

    Pass recommended trying attenuators in the -10 to 12 dB range. Cary said they have a mod to reduce gain by 6 dB. I have the -10 dB Rothwell’s on order and will report back my impressions after they...

    If Mike knows, he would be obligated to say he doesn't know, or none of this would work. Sooooo, I think that keeps the field pretty wide open.

    I play one album as background before critical listening and don’t notice much change after that, so approximately 45 minutes. This has been consistent with a number of different Pass amps that I...
