    Hi AlexArgie,

    Nice gear, how would you compare the sound of XP10 vs XP20?
    Many thanks

    I WENT from EMOTIVA XPR-1 MONOBLOCKS TO PASS LABS XA160s......I'm hearing things with my acoustat model 4 electrostatic speakers I've never heard before.......I've never heard Miles Davis blow so clear and beautiful I'm hearing cymbal sounds that were not there before.

    Congratulations, Mark-E. I once owned the XA160 after owning many Aleph models. It is excellent.

    You are welcome, Mark. The XA160 is a pretty old design. They were about $15,000 when new. These amps don't come up much for sale. You could try contacting Mark Sammut at Reno HiFi. He is extremely helpful and knows a lot about all Pass models. He could tell you what a fair current market price is. I had mine for about two years maybe ten years ago. I replaced them with the XA100.5 and then the XA160.5 when I needed more power for my new speakers. The XA models are interesting because they combined the Class A sweet sound of the Aleph series with the low noise/control of the X series. The history is interesting and you can find reviews on line that go into it. The .5 revision added a bit more control of the low frequencies making it sound more powerful.
