The EMM Labs, Kimber, Pass Labs and Sony Room
I didn’t notice it until I began processing my photographs, but what I thought was Sony’s new SS-AR2 loudspeaker ($20,000/pair) was in fact some other Sony speaker. The SS-AR1 and SS-AR2 do not have the additional baffle and three tweeters. It is a mystery to me. The power amplifier, however, is not a mystery. It is a Pass Labs X150.5 ($5500) , the smallest Class AB they offer.
The source was the EMM Labs XDS1 SACD player ($25,000).
The preamplifier was the Pass Labs X-10 ($5250). It’s a great match for the X150.5.
