The folks at Pass Labs have been hard at work on some new gear, including a new flagship preamplifier and a pair of mono amps that took three years to design and produce.  The Xs-150 and Xs-300 mono amplifiers offer a double stacked chassis that keeps  the power supply in one chassis while the input and output stages sit in the other. The new mono amps supply 150 and 300 watts of power respectively and offer larger but quieter transformers than previous amps.  The 150 will be available at $65,000 a pair while the 300 comes in at $85,000 a pair.



The company's new XP-30 preamplifier is designed as the new flagship in the line, adding on to the already impressive XP line with more inputs, more outputs, less crosstalk and a triple chassis structure.  This new build method keeps the power supply, control chassis and gain chassis completely separate. You'll be able to pick up the XP-30 in August for $16,500.
