Pass Labs is highly renown for their audio components, some of which operate in pure Class A. Besides preamplifiers and power amplifiers, they also produce phono preamplifiers (also called phono stages), having begun with the Aleph Ono in 1997. The XP-25 is their latest version, which was designed by Pass Labs engineer Wayne Colburn.
Tough sleding in that price category. Way too much competition from phono stages priced well below that price point.
On the other hand: Sony just unleashed a pair of speakers priced at 27K, so who am I to say???????
