The Pass XA 60.8 is an Ultra Hi-end Monoblock amplifier. Nelson Pass is considered a genius in the audio world…a magic man who really knows his stuff.

It produces enough practical class-A power to drive reasonable loudspeakers. The sonic goals are touch, texture, delicacy, sweetness, vividness, corporeality.

"It is the best sounding amplifier I have heard" John Atkinson - Stereophile

“JCA thought the Passes sounded “sweeter, warmer, more delicate” than the more expensive monoblocks that preceded them in his system but reserved his greatest praise for their spatial prowess: “I’d never heard an amplifier make such an obvious difference …”
