Conclusions

So, I have reviewed all three of Pass Labs' stereo preamplifiers. All of them perform beautifully, and each one has its own sonic personality, but the differences are subtle. As I mentioned in my review of the Pass Labs XP-30, "I would pair the XP-20 with a tube power amplifier, and the XP-30 with a solid state power amplifier." The XP-10 seems to be the most neutral of the trio, so you could pair it with either tubes or solid state power amplifiers. Thus, take your choice, behind Door # 1, Door # 2, or Door # 3. Don't worry. A terrific prize is behind each door.
