EMOTIVA XPA MODULAR POWER AMP GEN 3

Emotiva

The XPA Gen3 modular power amplifier is comprised of a heavy-duty chassis, which houses the oversized power supply, and up to seven amplifier modules. The XPA Gen3 can be purchased with anywhere between two and seven amplifier modules installed, and additional amplifier modules may be installed as more channels of amplification are needed (up to a maximum of seven modules). The front panel display and protection system are designed to work with the maximum number of channels, and so need not be updated when the XPA Gen3 is expanded; on the rear panel, slots not occupied by amplifier modules will be covered with protective cover panels.

single immense power supply, which is able to deliver massive power continuously to any two channels, and to deliver huge amounts of power dynamically to any number of channels when and if called upon to do so.
The power ratings for the XPA Gen3 modular power amplifier are the same with both channels driven continuously in the two-channel version of the amplifier, and for ANY TWO CHANNELS DRIVEN CONTINUOUSLY in the versions of the XPA Gen3 configured with three, four, five, six, or even seven output channels.

 


Type: Power Amplifier


  • A new approach to amplifier design.

    The XPA Gen 3 is a whole new ballgame.

    The new XPA Series amplifiers are fully modular and configurable at the time you order them. You can choose any configuration you want, from two to seven channels. All configurations are built on the same chassis, sharing one very robust power supply. If your needs change in the future, you can easily have more channels added. No need to get rid of a perfectly good two channel amplifier when you want to move up to surround sound. Why should you have to buy another amplifier when you’re perfectly happy with your current one, but you need a few more channels?

    New XPA Series utilizes a high-current switch mode power supply. It's a power supply capable of delivering over 3Kw of continuous power with absolute reliability and extremely high efficiency. It shares the dynamic attributes of a classic transformer-based design with none of the downside. It's lightweight, intelligent, and extremely powerful!

    Massive old school transformers and giant filter capacitors are rendered obsolete. They just can't compete. It's a revolution in power design, and it's the backbone of the new XPA modular amplifier system. It's the way of the future, and it's here now.

    Let's talk amplifiers

    XPA Gen 3 modular amplifier series uses the same core circuit topology as the legendary XPR series amplifiers. A unique differential input stage, with a cross-linked current source, drives a balanced VAS stage. The advanced input stage is tied to a fully complementary output stage and delivers a holistic, natural, and powerful listening experience. Low-level musical details and dialogue emerge from a deep black background. Its wide bandwidth, low distortion performance reveals every nuance of your high- resolution sources. The XPA amplifiers will drive difficult loudspeakers with absolute authority and control, and will keep their cool while doing so.

    the XPA amplifiers are cool running, which contributes to much longer component life, reduced power consumption, and increased reliability.

    All of the benefits of a classic Class AB design without the wasted heat, weight, and power of a conventional fixed rail design - Cool.

    Real Power. Really.

    Many "high-end" power amplifiers are rated with only a single channel, or sometimes with just two channels driven. Seriously, we can't make this stuff up. Maybe they come up with up with some marketing-driven "burst" power standard that exaggerates their performance. Or their marketing guys say hey, "instead of using an 8-ohm rating, let's do it at 6 ohms; that'll make a bigger power number!" Genius? Nope.

    Emotiva XPA Series amplifiers are always rated with all channels driven –continuously - into 8 ohms. New XPA Gen3 amplifiers will deliver the full power and majesty of today's high definition movie and music sources without a hint of strain, loss of detail, or control.
