I'm offering a Pass Labs XA30.5 for sale for $2950, plus shipping and any financial transaction fees. The serial number is 20265.

(This is one of 2 that I used in an active speaker system, and I'm only selling because I moved over to the Pass Labs XA30.8s.)

I have used the unit in a smoke-free, pet-free home, where it has worked flawlessly since I obtained it. I've cleaned the unit well and can find only very minimal marks on it aside from 2 specific issues. First, the top corner of the left front faceplate panel was dinged when I loaned it to a friend. I've included close-ups in the photos below. Note that while the panel is trivial to replace via two screws, Pass Labs doesn't currently have any replacement "wings" available, and isn't sure if they will get more. Second, there is a very fine scratch on the top steel panel that is roughly 8" long. It does not penetrate the finish (i.e. you can't feel it with a fingernail) and needs good light to see. Using a flashlight at an oblique angle, the only other marks that I could find a few faint marks on the rear handles, and a couple of pin-prick size marks on the heatsinks (that I thought were dust originally). The RCA inputs and speaker binding posts have seen the typical light use, but the gold plating is intact. (I only ever used the XLR inputs.)

If the unit shipped with the OEM 18AWG power cord, I now seem unable to find it. (I used an after-market power cord from day one, so I never noticed.) If you need a cord, I can provide a hospital grade cord that is probably slightly better than the $5 stock cable - just let me know.

I added teflon tape to the inside edges of the steel top panel that mate to the chassis underneath, as well as 2 constrained layer damping (CLD) tiles, in order to reduce the chance of any "ringing". (The rest of the chassis is built like a tank.)

Nominally rated at 30W into 8 Ohms while still in Class A operation, it will transition into class AB operation somewhere above that and continue providing power up to a Stereophile calculated 153W into 8 Ohms.

I've tried to take detailed photographs that capture all of the angles, but if you'd like to see more, please let me know and I'll do my best to accommodate in a timely fashion. If you have any questions, please ask!

Thanks for looking!
