New Pass Labs Go To

I’m very sad to see Mark close up Reno HiFi. He offered the best service out there: demo equipment, fair demo pricing, great inventory, etc.  if you dealt with them, you know what I mean.  That said, even though change is always hard to deal with, where is the new go to for Pass Labs electronics? I don’t have a local Pass dealer.  Asking for a friend…


I bought my XA25 from Mark, he was personable, efficient and always willing to advise and assist. Set the industry standard it seems for customer satisfaction. I wish him well in retirement.


Indeed, Marc was a special breed. I called him about 10 years ago to discuss amplifiers and we decided that an integrated 250 would be a good  choice for me. Without a credit card, or identification he  sent me the app to try for 30 days telling me that if I didn’t like it  I could send it back  (110 lb beast) based on one call

 who does that now without a prior relationship

. Needless to say I still have the app

I wish Mark the  very best in his retirement. 

Selfishly, I hate to see Reno Hi-Fi go and no one taking over mark’s shop. He was a hands-on dealer who valued personal communication. He will be missed.

Great dealer, great person. Great equipment.   All good things must come to an end.  

I almost bought a demo XA25 from them just a couple months ago and then stalled and then it was gone.  
Regarding the OP’s original question… is there a favorite Pass / FW dealer out there now? I see the Pass site lists dealers … but from ppl’s experiences, are there other specific dealers recommended ?
