    Pass Labs int 250 And Harbeth Synergy.....

    Anyone heard the Pass int 250 with Harbeth speakers? Just curious about the amp/speaker synergy?

    I heard the INT-60 with Super HL5 40th anniversary like yours. It was absolutely wonderful. I’m sure the 250 will be as good or probably better because of the extra power.

    Thanks, Joe. Yeah, that int 60 playing through those Harbeth Super HL 5+ 40th Anniversaries really left an impression on me. That int 250 must be a beast. You might notice I'm trying squeeze every bit of info on the int 250 from the AS Forum since I'm about to drop some serious money not only on the int 250 but I'm also going to purchase the MSB Discrete with 2nd power supply option, and Roon Nucleus. I just want to be as sure as I can be about my decisions. But I don't see how I could be disappointed with any of my components.

    I had a Pass X250.8 for a while and tried my 30.2s with it before I shipped them off to my summer house.

    Great combo.

    Thank you for your response. The Pass Labs int 250 has the same power amp section as the 250.8 so they should share very similar sonic personalities. The int 250 has a custom preamp and is an integrated vs the 250.8 amp. I've heard nothing but great things about the 250.8.

    Ha!! I might need a Valium! Mike too, LOL!! A good part of all this is just my excitement at, after many months of waiting, I will finally be taking ownership of my new system. I'm like a little kid with a Christmas catalog who's found exactly what he wants and can't stop looking at it.
