    ah fantastic , soundrebels . not had much response in UK to thoughts on this amp . its pretty light in weight compared to some of the pass integrated . Nice to see the size of it compared to the bottles . keep us posted as it breaks in . i recently sold my lovely msb s200 so sometime next year will be looking at a replacement integrated

    For now first impression - don't even try to listen this small Pass during first hour after wake up from stand-by. The sound is dull, grey and irritating

    Like most, if not all, Pass/First Watt amps, they need a good hour or more to wake up and open up. My SIT-3 takes a little longer but once there, OMG it's superb!

    Joe - do you warm up your SIT-3 with music streaming, or can you just turn it on for an hour? Thanks - Scotty

    Hi Scotty,

    Do you mean if I am only listening for an hour?

    It's sort of ok for the first hour, more listenable after about 20 minutes and wonderful after an hour or more. Once my amps are on, they are usually on for 8-12 hours.

    Re: The New Pass Int-25

    Joe - Before listening and while warming up the amp, do you stream music at low volume, or do you just turn on the amp (without streaming music) for the warmup period.....(and wondering if that is good for the amp)
