Power from Pathos

Pathos' InControl pre-amp (RM24,000) and InPower monoblocks (RM48,000) are now on demo in Centre Circle Audio's showroom. Pathos' phono stage, InTheGroove MkII, came along for the ride too.

Pathos InPower monoblocks

The InPower is rated at 80w/8ohm. I heard them driving a pair of EgglestonWorks Andra III, not exactly an easy pair of speakers. However, the InPower pair was unfazed. I heard refinement, excellent soundstage, beautiful tonality, and well controlled, well defined bass notes. Quite unexpected, the last bit. Probably not meant for rock recordings at concert level, but large scale orchestra will be right up their alley, while at the same time, you will also enjoy beautiful and natural vocal and instruments.
