Emotiva Basx Ta100 Stereo Amplifier with Dac + Tuner


BasX TA-100 offers the type of performance you might expect to find on expensive components costing many times its modest price. Unlike many other affordable audio components these days, the TA-100 delivers the superb sound and build quality you expect from a true high-end audiophile component. It has vanishingly low noise and distortion and features a wide-bandwidth design allowing you get the most out of your HD sources. Don’t be fooled by the conservative power ratings. Unlike the “throw-away” amplifiers you get in many low-powered receivers, the beefy fully complementary, all-discrete power amplifiers in the TA-100 have plenty of power reserves to drive all but the most inefficient speakers. Like all Emotiva amplifiers, they work very well with both 8 Ohm and 4 Ohm speakers.

BasX TA-100 is built to last, with a heavy-duty steel chassis, solid milled aluminum faceplate, and high-quality parts and construction
