Pass Laboratories Corporation was started in 1991 by legendary American audio designer Nelson Pass. You can read more about Nelson Pass on Wikipedia, just search “Nelson Pass.”

If you are here reading this, you probably know about Pass Labs, but in case you don’t -- Pass Labs is an American manufacturer of some of the very finest audio power amplifiers, preamplifiers, phono stages, and speakers ever produced in world. Pass Labs is almost exclusively focused on traditional two-channel analog products with almost no multi-channel home-theatre products. Pass Labs products are built in the small town of Foresthill, which is about a 45-minute drive from Sacramento, in northern California, USA. PASS products are built by hand, in America, with the best raw components on earth and to the most exacting quality control standards.

Pass Labs has just released its new flagship three-chassis preamp, the XP-30. Reno Hi-Fi is offering generous trade-in allowances for other preamps to make upgrading to the XP-30 easy. And with our in-home demo program you can experience the magnificent XP-30 in your own system and know that the XP-30 is right for you.  While the XP-30 is a superlative product, Pass’ list price of $16,500 is not out-of-reach, especially with a trade-in. Reno Hi-Fi has already helped many people own and enjoy the XP-30, and all who’ve heard the new three-chassis preamp have found its fantastic performance absolutely gorgeous.

In early 2012, Pass Labs will be releasing their ultra-monster two-chassis-mono (four-chassis for stereo) power amplifiers: the Xs-150 and Xs-300. The Pass Labs summary deign theory essay about the Xs amps is located on the News page of this website. The Pass Labs Xs-150 is 150 WPC into 8-ohms and the list price is $65,000. The Pass Labs Xs-300 is 300 WPC into 8-ohms and the list price is $85,000.
