I've been on Pass Labs amps for a while.My current best setup is using an active crossover bi-amped setup (with no passive crossover at all, just naked drivers), crossed over at 1270 Hz, using a Pass XA30.8 for the tweeter and an X150.5 for the mid-woofers.I suspect I would find using either one of the X.5 or X.8 series amps satisfactory for the mid-woofers, but the highs really do seem to like the sweeter XA.8 series.
27+ amps in 13 years. I've only loved a few of them. Most went in and out in a week or so. You've got to achieve system synergy and having the amp in you home in your system is pretty much the only way to know.
Unless one has measurements showing otherwise, I'm guessing changing 'external things' outside the amp => speakers signal path are more likely altering one's perception of the 'sound', rather than actually changing the sound waves reaching one's ears.
Yes. The environment will always have an influence on the "presentation"...
I should have been clearer: absolutely the physical attributes of the listening room will affect the objective phenomena. By 'external things' I meant things like power cables, conditioners, stands, footings and all other manner of mumbo jumbo on which lots of $$$ is spent believing it will objectively affect what reaches our ears. There's similar argument to be made against mega-bank interconnects and speaker cables, which are actually _in_ the signal chain.
That's a lot of amps and experience!
