I recently got the XP-32 which replaced the great PS Audio BHK. Power amp is a Pass 250.8, speakers. Magico A3's.

Thoughts coming soon...

Congratulations Jay. Pass and Magico is a match made in heaven. In my opinion of course. I look forward to reading your impressions of the new preamp.

Would like to hear from anyone here pairing a Pass pre with a Gryphon amp? Does this pairing work well?

The XP 32 is now our Reference at Sound Insight’s showroom.
It has The most clarity and focus of any preamp We have heard to date.
The noise floor is actually very impressive as well.
This video was taken at our customers house who wanted to audition it and compare it to his state of the art vacuum tube preamp. Headphones will definitely help give you a sense of the tonality.
