East End Hi-Fi is a premier New York Retailer for Pass Labs, and has a full line of Pass equipment for demonstration!
Pass Labs has been in business for over 25 years, and has made some of the most enduring solid state electronics the industry has seen. They have been recognized in high-end journals over the years for producing some of the highest quality products in high-end audio.
Pass Labs X250.8 Stereo Amplifier **available for audition At East End Hi-Fi**
The Pass Labs X-250.8 is a world class Class A/AB solid state amplifier highly biased to Class A giving it a slightly warmish sound with all the dynamics and slam of traditional solid state amps.
The Pass Labs XA25 is a Class A, single ended, 25W/ch solid state amplifier. As the new addition to the Pass Labs lineup, it has already made a mark by being awarded by Stereophile a "Class A" rating in their most recent Recommended Components list!

The Pass Labs HPA-1 is a Class A, single ended, solid state preamplifier / headphone amplifier. Not only is the HPA-1 an amazing headphone amp, it functions as a best in class preamplifier in a small system.
After being reviewed in 2016 in Stereophile, and being named the 2017 Headphone "Product of the Year", it was awarded a "Class A" rating. It continues to appear in their most recent 2018 Recommended Components list! Also has been awarded TAS's 2018 Editor's Choice Award.

"In my estimation, the RP-5’s neutrality should make it an easy partner for just about any system. Rogue makes this statement on their website: “Our philosophy is simple -- We will never design any amplifier that we would not purchase for ourselves.”
"From the evidence presented to me by this model, the folks at Rogue Audio like their equipment to sound great, look attractive, and feel satisfying to the touch. The RP-5 is a preamp that, I, too, would happily buy."

Rogue Audio has recently taken to developing a new type of Hybrid amplifier by utilizing a combination of an input stage that uses two Russian 12AU7 tubes in front of a highly modified MOSFET output stage from Hypex (a number of the Hypex module’s functions are completely bypassed):
The Rogue Audio Hybrid Amplifiers have received excellent press:
output power: 100 WPC minimum, - THD: <0.1% typ., <1% at rated power, - frequency response 20Hz - 20KHz, - phono section 40 dB
- input sensitivity: 1.0V RMS, - dimensions: 15.5" W x 17" D x 5" H, - weight: 25 lbs, - shipping weight: 30 lbs.
Imagine a new kind of amplifier that combines the best of both the solid state and tube technologies. An energy efficient "green" design requiring no tube biasing or regular maintenance. An amplifier having the smooth and organic sound that only tubes can provide combined with the dynamics and slam of the solid state. Such an amplifier now exists! Critics are already using words like "Groundbreaking" and "Revolutionary" to describe our new tube/Class D hybrid amplifiers:
Output power 100/200 WPC 8/4 Ohms, Input impedance: 200K Ohms, frequency response: 10Hz - 20KHz ± 1dB, THD: <0.1% typ., <1.0% at rated power - input sensitivity: 1.0V RMS, dimensions: 18" W x 15" D x 5.5" H, - weight: 34 lbs
