    Re: Pass INT-60 Review

    You can use it as a preamp only if you like. I tried it hooked up to an AR tube amp. but unfortunately I was very disappointed with the results. Perhaps it would sound good with another solid state amp.

    Re: Pass INT-60 Review

    Sounded great with the Ayre KX-5/20 as a pre.

    Re: Pass INT-60 Review

    Wouldn’t it be going thru it’s own preamp plus the Ayre preamp then?
    Correct?

    Re: Pass INT-60 Review

    I auditioned an int 60 at Suncoast Audio last Saturday and was VERY impressed. As some here know, I auditioned seven different integrated amps. Although my first choice for the amp to build my new system around was the Gryphon Diablo D300, I was very pleasantly surprised by the int 60. I wasn't even going to audition it but I'm sure glad I did. Both the Pass int 60 and NAIM Supernait 3 were neck and neck and a close second to the D300 for me. They all sounded superb but, at the same time, different. The int 60 is a very smooth amp. Due in part, no doubt, to the class A bias up to 30 watts. But it also had rich mids and a sweet top end. I could very well end up with an int 60 when I equip my upstairs living room with a new system in the future. But, for now, my main priority is putting together a top notch system in our downstairs family/music/listening room. However, I very highly recommend both the int 60 and SN3. Both are VERY impressive amps.

    Re: Pass INT-60 Review

    I just wanted to add to my post above, when we hooked an MSB ADC V DAC up to the int 60.....pure, sublime, magic. I had to think long and hard before deciding on the Gryphon Diablo 300 with Lumin T2 DAC. That Pass int 60 is indeed one delicious sounding amp.
