    Re: Magico A5ís Arrive!!!!

    I love my INT250, sound great with Studio2. I wanted Pass separates but due to WAF (I can't have too many boxes sitting in the small living room) I had to simplify to one box INT250.

    Yes, and your customers benefit from your representation and service, Mike.

    It is not as easy as blaming Reno Hifi, though. My local dealer told me years ago, and certainly before Reno started as a trade in/refurbishment business for discontinued Pass products. My dealer told me that two brands he represented told him that if they took on Pass, they would pull their products. I guess they did not want to compete. My dealer says he considered it because they like Pass too. Tough decisions. I believe the story, but can not verify it.

    Hard to say, but the fly in the ointment is a deterrent.

    Wow....that is quite the step up!! I'm definitely going to give the A5 a listen....once stores reopen. One advantage of going to those over the Salon2 is I could eliminate one set of monoblocks and associated cabling.

    With so many brands, I would support Pass and let the chips fall. Perhaps a bit of ignorance, but when you have overhead your responsible for you need diversity, I canít think of a better time than now for the reason why

    Re: Magico A5ís Arrive!!!!

    I have a weird question that has been bothering me.

    Is it ever necessary to equalize the internal air pressure of the speaker cabinet with the local atmospheric pressure? Say if a set of these speakers are built at roughly sea level (Hayward, Ca) and then shipped to a customer in Denver?

    Re: Magico A5ís Arrive!!!!

    are you suggesting we can bottle barometric pressure and bring it with us?
