The Third Generation XPA Family Of Modular Power Amplifiers

The Third Generation XPA Family Of Modular Power Amplifiers

 

There are several different models in the new XPA family of power amplifiers, offering you the unique opportunity to personalize your new amplifier to exactly the configuration you need for your stereo or surround sound audio system.  

Each XPA amplifier starts with a heavy duty steel chassis. This chassis houses the massive switch mode power supply, the protection and control circuitry, and the amplifier modules. Displayed on the front panel are status LEDs for each channel, and the large illuminated Standby Power button. There are two different versions of the chassis, both perfectly matched on the outside, but containing slightly different versions of the power supply, each optimized for the combination of amplifier modules the chassis is populated with.  

Our new XPA amplifiers all feature a fully modular design. The amplifier can be populated with anywhere between two and fourteen amplifier channels at purchase and have channels added or removed at any point by sending the amplifier back to Emotiva Headquarters.

   
There are currently 3 different models of modules that are used in the XPA amplifiers. There is the standard 300 watt “Mono” module, the 2 x 75 watt “Stereo” module, and the 600 watt “DR” module.    

The XPA Modules

The 300 watt High-Powered Single Channel Amplifier “Mono” Module is a fully discrete, dual differential, high current, short signal path Class A/B amplifier module, featuring Optimized Class H power supply topology, audiophile grade input connectors and speaker terminals, and microprocessor control fault protection. This module may be used in the same chassis as the “Stereo” modules to help meet your system channel requirements.       The 2 x 75 watt “Stereo” module is a two-channel, fully discrete, dual differential, high current, short signal path Class A/B amplifier module, featuring audiophile grade input connectors and speaker terminals, and microprocessor controlled fault protection. The “Stereo” Amplifier Module provides two completely independent amplifier channels in a module that occupies a single slot. The “Stereo” modules may be used in the same chassis as the “Mono” modules to help meet your system channel requirements.     The 600 watt “DR” module is a very high powered Differential Reference™, fully discrete, fully differential, fully balanced, high current, short signal path Class A/B amplifier, featuring Optimized Class H power supply topology, audiophile grade input connectors and speaker terminals, and microprocessor controlled fault protection. Each “DR” Differential Reference™ Amplifier modules consists of two complete signal paths, one for each phase of the audio signal, in a fully symmetrical balanced configuration, and occupies two module slots in the XPA chassis. These “DR” modules CANNOT be mixed and matched with the “Mono” or “Stereo” modules.  

The Benefits Of A Dedicated Power Amplifier

Most experts agree that, if you want the absolute best sound quality and technical performance, you should use dedicated separate components. Because our power amplifiers are designed for a single purpose, we can concentrate on ensuring that they perform that one task very well, and avoid the compromises inherent in products that are expected to perform a variety of different functions. Our amplifier modules are designed to reproduce today’s high definition movie sound tracks and music sources with awesome realism, amazing finesse and precision, and without the slightest hint of strain or signal compression. Our specially designed 3 kW switch mode power supply delivers the tightly regulated continuous power and massive reserves of dynamic power necessary to enable our amplifier modules to perform to their ultimate potential. Together they deliver an experience that simply cannot be matched by multi-purpose components like receivers. We’re talking about real-world power and fidelity that you can immediately hear and appreciate.

Made in the USA

The XPA-3 Gen3 is designed, assembled, and tested in the USA, where we use the finest materials and latest technologies to bring you world-class products. Each Emotiva amplifier is carefully engineered and designed with premium components to deliver a stunningly capable, reliable, and refined system.
