Overview

The XDA-2 G2 enables all of your digital music sources—computer, media player, CD transport, and more—to deliver true audiophile-quality sound to your stereo system. Based on our highly successful XDA-2, with an upgraded high-performance USB input, and modern new Gen 2 styling,­ the XDA-2 G2 will bring your two-channel digital audio content to life with the absolute best audio quality possible. As a source component, the XDA-2 G2 lets you control all of your digital sources from a single point, and delivers the same great sounding analog output from each of them. As a digital preamp, the XDA-2 G2’s  high quality analog circuitry, and precision analog resistor ladder volume control, which maintains full resolution even at low volume settings, make it ideally suited for pairing directly with a high quality power amplifier. At the same time, its discrete, high-current headphone amplifier drives headphones with authority.

The XDA-2 G2 is the ideal way to enhance the sound quality of virtually any audio system. No matter your digital source—or sources—the XDA-2 G2 is ready, with multiple optical and coaxial inputs, as well as a high-performance USB input, which connects easily to your computer and supports all standard sample rates up to 24/192. Emotiva’s Differential Reference™ topology, combined with an asynchronous sample rate converter to remove jitter, delivers exceptional sound quality. Coupled with the convenience of a front-panel alphanumeric display and a full-function machined aluminum remote control, there’s no better value in DACs today.

XDA-2 G2: the nerve center of your modern digital audio system.
