Offering all the sonic benefits of the .8 amplifier line, a pair of XA60.8's also grace the listener with mono-block performance: dedicated power supplies for each channel, dedicated circuitry for each channel and dedicated chassis' for each channel offer a cleaner, better defined image and soundstage. Beautiful to the ears and eyes, this model achieves levels of focus and intimacy normally associated with the finest tube amplifiers. The XA60.8's do all of this while providing greater control and power.

“JCA thought the Passes sounded “sweeter, warmer, more delicate” than the more expensive monoblocks that preceded them in his system, but reserved his greatest praise for their spatial prowess: “I’d never heard an amplifier make such an obvious difference …”

“In reviewing Pass Laboratories’ solid-state XA60.8 monoblock amplifier, JCA echoed JA’s earlier published response to the amp’s predecessor, the XA.60.5: “the best amplifier I’ve heard.””

“Rock-solid dependability, never needing repair”
Home Theater Review

“There are speakers that need more power and the XA60.8 is the choice”
Dagogo

“So then, you might ask, what is the Pass Labs “family” sound? Different people hear things differently, but for me, it goes something like this: it’s somewhat warm, well-balanced top to bottom, dimensional, and forgiving, all while demonstrating prodigious bass.” John Richardson

“The improvements rendered by the Pass Labs XA60.8s weren’t only in the soundstage; the sound was now, when called for, sweeter, warmer, more delicate—as, for example, with the voices and tenor sax on Getz/Gilberto, an oh, so familiar recording I explored with new interest with the XA60.8s in the system.” Jim Austin
