A Pass XA30.5 (I tried 2 of them - returned the first one) couldn't handle a pair of Tannoy Turnberry speakers. 93dB?
I don't know what 'couldn't handle' actually means?
Wouldn't go loud enough?
93db is pretty sensitive and should be in the sweet-spot for the Pass 30 series. Anything else of note, like maybe magnet wires in place of real speaker connection, that sort of thing?
Too much is never enough
Wouldn't go loud enough without strain. Audioquest biwire cable, Pass preamp. Replaced with Yamaha integrated. All is well now. I tried 2 different XA30.5s. The meter on the first one behaved strangely. Pass wanted it back after seeing pictures. There was something wrong with it beyond the meter behavior, but I was never told what was wrong. (I asked via email if there was anything wrong besides the meter and was told yes. I asked specifically what was wrong and got no reply.) Both XA30.5s sounded about the same to me.
