    Pass 260.8's

    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. After...

    Speakers for Pass Labs Electronics ?

    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.

    Speakers for Pass Labs Electronics ?

As much as I love my current speakers, I'm getting the itch to transition into a non electrostatic. One of...

    INT-60 Question

    Reno Hi-Fi took all prices on Pass products off their website?????

    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...

    Transitioning from Electrostatics???

    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...
