Pass Labs XA-160.5 Mint condition (Boston area)


Recommended Posts

A pair of Pass XA-160.5 mono blocs in mint condition. These were purchased in Dec 2012 and still are in warranty. Comes with original doubles boxes and can be shipped at your expense (rather heavy amps). Asking price: $13,150.

 

Please add 3% if paying by Paypal; I will accept personal checks or money orders as well - will ship after cashing them. I have 100% positive feedback on Audiogon, eBay, Astromart and Fredmiranda.

Why selling such a new and expensive amp? It's not exactly an impulse purchase.

I'm currently in an apartment and have been investing in an expensive headphone setup to deal with the sub-optimal acoustic environment. I'm trying to balance it out by reducing the investment in the main rig. As you say, this was definitely not an impulse purchase - this was the result of a few upgrades from an original X250 (to XA60.5 -> XA100.5 -> XA160.5). Because of that, I'm somewhat torn in putting this amp for sale as it would be very hard to reacquire later (for a similar price)

Beautiful. Unaffordable for me, unfortunately. And woodgeek, good luck with those Aleph Js. I looked into putting together a stereo Aleph X, but decided a used Spectral would be a better idea for me.
