What a lot of people miss is the fact that Pass Lab's "Class A" XA series of amps official power ratings are merely the power they provide into Class A, but they actually move to Class B after that point, and can deliver double their rated power or more. In contrast the older Class A amps ...

How do you go from 5K to 20K with what is now the limited run production model? The SP-10xx is just a table (motor and platter) and power supply, always has been. Technics then offers them with a high end plinth & cover, and there is also an optional high end tonearm. I'm sure they got to $20k ...

See my first post where I stated that cable is one of the most common causes of ground loops. If you get hum when cable is connected some way to your system (through the TV, VCR, Cable box, FM tuner, etc) it's because the cable isn't grounded properly where it enters the house.

Hi everyone, Almost there! When I disconnect the HDMI from the computer it stops. Update...it does the same thing with a new laptop...so then I unplugged the HDMI at the tv and it stops?

Is all your equipment plugged into the same power circuit? Putting your amp on a different circuit is quick and reliable way to get a ground loop which will present itself as a hum in your system. Another common source is if you have a component plugged into your preamp that is connected to cable (e...

I've been buying records, CDs, and other goodies from the UK for many years (eBay UK is great). Shipping by Royal Post is usually faster and cheaper than getting items from the US. For some reason I've found packages from the UK to take longer than usual this year, but that's not the norm.

Not all streaming solutions handle Tidal the same way. I first tried Tidal when I was using a Simaudio Mind 180 streamer with factory app, and it didn't sound anywhere as good as lossless files served from my computer via DNLA protocol (yes Tidal was set for hi-fi / lossless). When I changed to a SO...

seba007, those absolutely look like a Totem product, particularly telling is the terminal connection setup on the back. Perhaps you should email Totem and ask them if they can provide any information. Since most of Totem's designs are two ways, those are an interesting find.

I was shopping for Pass Labs amps this year on various forums including CAM. Pass Labs amp hold their value fairly well, but like any company, when they release a new product series, it impacts the value of the older ones since they are no longer the latest and greatest design. A major thing to be a...
