Integrateds from Pass Labs

Nelson Pass's introductory claim was modest: "Pass simply added some input selection and level control to the front end to turn these amplifiers into new integrated models." What I saw were two impressive integrated amps that are clearly derived from the larger Point 8 amps as evidenced by the same distinctive meters. Both the 60Wpc INT-60 ($9000) and the 250Wpc INT-250 ($12,000) are said to deliver the same low distortion and outstanding speaker control as their larger predecessors. They also have a volume stage with gain, direct access to four line-level inputs and add a two-line digital level display.
