Description

This integrated amplifier sets a new benchmark in significantly narrowing any perceived performance gap between separate components and integrated amplifiers. Advanced technologies and real-world testing combine to create the INT-60 which presents 60 glorious watts per channel into 8 ohms, and doesn’t leave class A until 30 watts thanks to its high-bias operation. This larger class A operating envelope brings lower distortion and greater loudspeaker control, delivering higher quality musical fidelity for your enjoyment.

If I told you that Pass Laboratories’ INT-60 integrated amplifier ($9000) was engineered by meth-lab trolls, its faceplate was wonky, its transformers buzzed, and it made every instrument sound like a tambourine, you’d think I was a crackpot with some kind of axe to grind, right? Because I suspect that, like me, you’ve never experienced or even read about a Pass Labs amp that didn’t sound good.

What if I said that the Pass INT-60 is a reference-quality stereo integrated amplifier that reproduces recordings in a manner refined and sensuous? That it has a nicely sculpted enclosure that looks expensive and feels timelessly tasteful? That it puts out 60Wpc into 8 ohms and powered every speaker I tried with steady, tantalizing assurance?

Review over. Are you ready for me to coddiwomple? Or would you prefer I discuss the virtues of high-bias class-A vs class-D amplification?

Or should I attempt to answer the No.1 question that the mere existence of the INT-60 poses to everyone who experiences it: Is it the best-integrated amplifier ever?
