    Totally agree. This room was unlistenable when I started. The flutter echo was awful. Now it is very controlled without being overdamped. It took a while to get there, but now the room is a real pleasure to be in and the music sounds great.

    Well, I couldn’t leave well enough alone and went back to a brand that I have owned in the past and have always loved, Pass Labs. I purchased a Pass X250.8 to replace my old Forte amplifier and couldn’t be happier. The Pass really brings the Blades to life. Tremendous musicality, gorgeous midrange, power to spare. What’s not to like?

    If any of us could leave well enough alone, there would not be a Hi Fi industry

    Enjoy in health!

    Congrats Morgan, had it in my system for a while as well. A great amp, performance is solid as a rock.
