The Pass Labs X150.8 amplifier is one of our favourite amplifiers for matching with the Harbeth range of loudspeakers.

Seven years in the making, the Point 8 Series demonstrates Pass Laboratories' belief that "the best products must be carefully adjusted until their components operate in harmony — then subjectively fine-tuned".

The output stages of the larger Point 8 amplifiers bias more deeply into the Class A operating region.

Their larger push-pull Class A operating delivers low distortion and additional loudspeaker control at ordinary listening levels.

Higher power MOSFETs, and many more of them, are used to increase the amplifiers' Class A operation while running at fractions of their stated output power specifications.

This aid in both performance and reliability.

Each model in the 8 series has a front end specifics to its output stage so that the nine units' front ends vary in size, voltage, bias current, dissipation, and single-ended versus push-pull bias distribution.

There’s more — including larger power supplies, more storage capacitance, more precise reference voltages, and new, larger heat sinks.

Results - you gain a greater sense of space and depth, with improved bass definition across the whole .8 series range.
