Pathos had some demo units on the Munich hi end show this year. But i couldn't give a try, there was a lot of things to see and try.

Nice amp.

 

Thanks, very nice review.    I'm toying with getting a new amp for my HD800's, not that I need one, just bored.   Just to be contrary I really like the 'no labels'.   Two buttons... I think I can figure it out.  smily_headphones1.gif

 

The volume gain knob on the back sounds like a nice feature.  I like to have a fair amount of gain in my volume control.   I had a Violectric V200 for awhile and absolutely loved the volume control on that thing.

Is that an input for a 9 volt power supply I see on the back? 

 

A fifteen hundred dollar amp with a wall-wart?  

 

Please tell me I'm mistaken.......

Not a wall wart, but yes, an outboard power supply. Not my favorite thing either, but all too common these days...about to review the Bakoon HPA-21, also uses off the shelf outboard power supply.

Nice amp.

 

sorry, I missed the price. How much?

 

edit---ok, found it at stereophile -- $1495.  Same price as the Fosgate. I'd be curious to know how the two compare. Any comments?

I can't comment on that right now as I've not really heard the Fosgate, but I will be reviewing it in a couple months.
