Its a whole new generation of Emotivas most popular monoblock power amp. Now, you get the immense, relaxed power of the previous XPA-1, together with switchable 60W Class A mode for even more amazing musicality. And, if that wasn't enough, we upped the power output to 600W into 8 ohms in Class AB mode.
Oh wait, you want it all? Class A sweetness and Class AB power? No problem! When you're in Class A mode, the XPA-1 Gen 2 seamlessly transitions into Class AB mode when needs demand. This means you can find the sweet spot at practically every volume level from the softest pianissimo to the full-throated roar of an orchestral crescendo.
And the sound? Even better than the previous generation, thanks to small but significant refinements to our Differential Reference circuitry. Now, the finest details are clearly rendered, together with the refinement and finesse you'd expect from a flagship amplifier.
The previous XPA-1 has been called a beast, a monster, an abominable snowman on steroids. Now, the XPA-1 Gen 2 has been sent to finishing school. Its your conduit to the pure power and majesty of music and movies distilled into a beautifully designed and precision-crafted 73-lb powerhouse.
The XPA-1 Gen 2 is the ultimate expression of our X-Series Gen 2 power amplifiers, reflected in its differential-all-the-way-through design, superior build quality, and even tiny but meaningful touches like machined, gold-plated RCA connectors, a high-quality metal toggle switch for input selection, and an informative metering system that can be dimmed or turned off entirely. Every aspect of the XPA-1 Gen 2 has been carefully considered and engineered to deliver an amazing experience, by any measure.
Add a pair of XPA-1 Gen 2s to your system and treat yourself to total musicality, complete immersion, and effortless power.
The XPA-1: Effortless power, refined.
