I recently had a conversation with Mark at Reno Hifi. I'm looking to upgrade from my Pass Labs 250.8 and asked about 60.8's or even the 100.8's.
One of the advantages of the 60.8's was a slightly smaller chassis in height. These would fit in my existing Timbernation audio rack.
No..I'm still using my M/L Montis's. Also..Yes I am stilll using a 250.8 and an XP 12 pre.
I'm a little hesitant to make the switch given my system sounds incredible as it is.
Also...Its extremely hard to demo large floor standing speakers in my home. I also don't have any dealers in my area.
I'm all in with Pass Labs. I have the 250.8---XP 12---and my phono pre is the XP 17. I have used electostatics for over 20 years, and for the last 4 years have used Martin Logan Montis's.
As much as I love my current speakers, I'm getting the itch to transition into a non electrostatic. One of...
I currently have an XP-17 Phono...an XP-12 Pre, and a 250.8 amplifier. I'm using all Audience cabling and Power Cords.
I'm curious as to what other cabling/power cables work well with Pass Labs ?
My Power cords are all AU 24 SEi's ...
My interconnects are all AU 24 SX.
What cabling and power...
This will be a confusing post...but here it goes....
I've had electrostatics for 20 years...probably about 6-7 pairs.
I currently have Martin Logan Montis's .. which I'm very happy with.
On a whim...I recently bought an immaculate pair of Harbeth Super HL 35's
I had no expectations other...
I love this integrated amp. It drives my Martin Logan Montis's effortlessly.
Recently I have been auditioning some Harbeth's. They are harder to drive, and I need to increase the volume noticeably.
Example-Typical volume range with the Montis's is 36-42. Harbeth's its 44-52
The Pass Int-60...
This is probably my next price range...in the event I upgrade my VPI Prime Signature.
Just curious....whats the next level???
Any and all opinions are greatly appreciated.
I love VPI...but open to other brands.
Thanks in advance.
Back to Mark at Reno HiFi.....I don't have a Pass Labs dealer anywhere even close to me (Cleveland) I'm not even sure if there is one in the state of Ohio. Mark was extremely helpful, and the home demo pretty much makes the buying/demo process as easy as possible. As a result I bought the...
I mainly listen to Classic Rock-Although I also love female vocalists, blues and some jazz.
I'm located in Cleveland ,Ohio. All the great audio stores are long gone, so it makes it hard to audition new gear.
I've picked the above speaker companies based on reviews and pleasing aesthetics.
More to come.....My humble system.

I have been listening to Martin Logans for the the last 15 years. I have worked my way up the ladder to my current martin Logan Montis's.
I have no issues with them...in fact I love how they sound. However like all audio junkies..i'm bored and considering a change.
I'm considering Focal Sopra...
I have a Plinius Koru- Here are ADJUSTABLE LOADS-
47k ohms, 22k ohms, 1k ohms, 470 ohms, 220 ohms, 100 ohms, 47 ohms, 22 ohms
I'm about to buy an Ortofon Cadenza Bronze that recommends loading at 50-200 ohms
Will 47 ohms work? Or should I start out at 100 ohms?
I'm obviously not well...
I'm thinking of upgrading from my Quintet Black S.
I'm looking for first hand opinions on the Cadenza Black, to compliment my soon arriving VPI Prime Signature Rosewood.
