    Stepping up in Pass Labs Amp series - aka 600.8 vs 200.8

    Thanks. I have had this issue as well. When I bought the speakers sound was just terrible. Like a broken device. After a lot of trial and error, I engaged an accredited acoustic engineer with appropriate equipment to set them up appropriately in the room. As I said room treatment and overall...

    Stepping up in Pass Labs Amp series - aka 600.8 vs 200.8

    It seems that cabling is an issue on my system and I investigate options. It looks like my DIY cabling and has been developed based on previous experiences doesn’t match at all Pass Labs sound. I will come back with more outcome once I get to a point I have a more solid view of what works best...

    Stepping up in Pass Labs Amp series - aka 600.8 vs 200.8

    Thanks Peter and all for your responses. I see the recommendation on electronics and tuning (i.e. cabling). What would be a balanced approach to PC/Interconnect/Speaker cables with reference point Pass Labs as my pre/power amp and what i am missing in terms of sound?

    Stepping up in Pass Labs Amp series - aka 600.8 vs 200.8

    I just pinged Kent and waiting for his input. I am still though very interested on hearing opinions from other WBF members that apparently have extensive experience with these amps.

    Stepping up in Pass Labs Amp series - aka 600.8 vs 200.8

    room's acoustic is pretty much balanced and mostly on the alive side. It's not my room overdamped. Tested with and without treatment. I sense that i need more drive, authority and control of the woofers. Hence, i am orienting myself towards a more powerful amplifier. I am still concerning though...

    Stepping up in Pass Labs Amp series - aka 600.8 vs 200.8

    Thanks thedudeabides. My overall ‘complain’ is around I get a lifeless sound which is not related to tonality or sound signature that I find it to be of my preference. I have treated my listening room with room acoustics with a lot of diffusion to keep the room as live as possible (RT60 is...

    Stepping up in Pass Labs Amp series - aka 600.8 vs 200.8

    I am definitely enjoying sound signature. What I miss is authority, control and make sound live ( it’s kind of lifeless and I assume because of speakers being difficult to manage?).

    Stepping up in Pass Labs Amp series - aka 600.8 vs 200.8

    Usually i am hearing around 80-85db. i am mostly concerned on not the generic class A/AB topology but most on implementation of these two amplifiers relevant to my speakers.

    Stepping up in Pass Labs Amp series - aka 600.8 vs 200.8

    Hello everyone, I am considering my next upgrade to match my system and my overall environment. So far my system lies in a ‘playroom’ with all proper acoustic treatment and consists of: Speakers: Focal Maestro Evo Preamp: Pass XP22 Power Amp: Pass 350.8 Dac: Rockna Wavedream signature...
