.8 Power Amplifiers
The output stages of the larger Point 8 amplifiers bias more deeply into the Class-A operating region. These amplifiers glow with innovation. Their larger push-pull Class-A operating envelopes deliver low distortion and additional loudspeaker control at ordinary listening levels. And higher power MOSFETs, many more than usual, increase the amplifiers’ Class-A operation while running at fractions of their stated specs to enhance both performance and reliability.
Still not content, we uniquely moulded each model’s front end to the specifics of its output stage so that the nine amplifiers’ front ends vary in size, voltage, bias current, dissipation, and single-ended vs. push-pull bias distribution. The directly coupled front ends, which house the input and voltage gain stages, maximise each model‘s output stage performance while imparting to each model its own subtle and unique sonic signature.
There’s more — including larger power supplies, more storage capacitance, more precise reference voltages, and new, larger heat sinks — but suffice it to say that with the Point 8 Series, we move beyond cookie-cutter circuits.

XA25 Power Amplifier
Entering their 22nd year of production, the X and XA power amplifiers have remained at the cutting edge of audio through continuous innovation and refinement. At Pass, we build amplifiers with excessive output stages, huge heat sinks and massive power supplies. The new XA25 offers this at slightly lower power, without frills, at a lower price. It embodies new components and innovative circuits coupled with the best elements of the previous generation.
The XA25 measures superbly, but it's subjective qualities are most special. In an industry where products with great specs are frequently found to be dry and boring, this amplifier breathes life into the music.
