We also offer expedited shipping, to get a quote, please call us at 877-366-8324
Where do you ship to?
We ship everywhere in North America and internationally to customers where we do not have a distribution partner.
We are happy to have distribution partners all over the world that offer sales, support, and service. For a list of our international partners, click here.
Where do you ship free?
We ship free within the contiguous 48 states for all products. Additional shipping charges apply to Alaska, Hawaii, US territories, APO, and FPO addresses. Shipping options and delivery estimates are available at checkout.
How quickly are orders shipped?
Depending on the day of the week, and the type of product, we ship within 24-48 hours from when we receive your order. Orders that take place over the weekend, starting from 12 PM CST on Friday until Sunday, will not be processed until the following Monday. The XPA Gen 3 amplifiers including the DR models, and the XMC-1 require additional time as we build the products in our in-house production facility, and are often built to order. The delivery window for those items are on their respective product pages.
What courier service does Emotiva use?
Our preferred courier is UPS. For smaller packages, we sometimes use USPS.
How long will it take to receive my shipment in the USA?
Within the USA, UPS shipping usually takes from 2-6 business days, depending on your relative distance to TN. LTL Freight will contact you with an estimate of shipping time.
Will I be able to track my shipment?
Yes. You will receive an email with your UPS tracking number. If you do not receive this number, please contact us.
Am I required to sign for my UPS package?
Yes. For orders valued over $500, our shipping carriers require a signature at the time of delivery. UPS will obtain a signature from any person at the delivery address. If no one is at the address, the shipping carrier will reattempt delivery. Signature Required overrides any recipient release that may be on file for deliveries to nonresidential address. If you would like your shipment to be delivered to another address, please contact Customer Service via email at email@example.com or 615-790-6754.
Do you ship worldwide?
Yes, we do. We have exclusive distributor partnerships around that sell the Emotiva brand through local dealers, and directly to consumers. Our partners offer local sales and service support in their respective regions as well. For a list of our distribution partners, click here.
If we do not have a distributor in your region, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will provide a shipping quote for you.
If you are in Canada, we sell directly to consumers like with do in the United States, with free shipping. Canada customers receive free shipping, returns within Canada, and local Canadian service from our Emotiva Canada Technical Office. To place an order, email us at email@example.com.
Do you ship free to Canada?
You, bet! We cover the shipping for orders to Canada for orders over $49. You will just need to handle the duties and taxes. The great news is that once your product ships from the USA to Canada, it can be returned to our Canadian Technical office (yes, we have a local office in Canada!) should you want to return an item. We also offer local service to customers in Canada, so in most situations, your product never has to come back to the USA once it crosses the border. For now, to place an order in Canada, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Soon, we will have a new web platform for Canada that will take online orders. We expect it to launch in early 2018!
What about shipping?
UPS® is our preferred international carrier.
What is the international return policy?
All equipment purchased internationally from Emotiva is covered by our standard 30-day return policy. With the exception of Canada, all equipment returned to Emotiva for a refund must be shipped to our US headquarters in Nashville Tennessee, at the purchaser’s expense, in its original packaging.We cannot issue refunds for incomplete equipment, or equipment received in damaged condition. Some factory renewed or clearance items may NOT be eligible for our 30-day return policy. Any such items will be clearly marked on our website and your purchase documentation. Note: You MUST get a Return Material Authorization (RMA) case number from the Support Staff at Emotiva in Nashville Tennessee BEFORE shipping your product to us for a refund.
What about international service?
All customers who purchase equipment internationally from Emotiva are covered by the same warranty terms and for the same warranty period as our US customers. Terms and conditions of the warranty for each item are available in the product manual and on our website.
Warranty service for international customers who purchased their equipment directly from Emotiva is normally provided at Emotiva headquarters here in the USA. While labor and materials are covered under our standard warranty, international customers are responsible for all shipping charges to and from our headquarters. Unfortunately, in some areas, shipping can be expensive and slow. Therefore, we are pleased to offer many of you another option…
While our international distributors would normally only service gear purchased through them, in an effort to provide the best possible service to our valued customers, we have made special arrangements to have some of our distributors service Emotiva gear for our international customers at a reduced rate. (Also, since we will be providing the necessary repair parts to them under your warranty, and will be working closely with them throughout the repair process, you will ONLY be paying for the labor.)
Please note that, while you will be required to negotiate and pay repair fees directly to the service center, and we will NOT be able to reimburse your labor costs, the cost to have your equipment repaired locally will almost surely be less than the cost to ship it internationally, you will avoid excessively long shipping delays, and you will be assured of a competent repair by an approved service facility.
Of course, if you prefer to ship your equipment directly back to the US for warranty repair, we will be pleased to accommodate you, and to provide full warranty service at no cost to you other than shipping. If you wish to consider this option, please let us know, and we’ll confirm whether we can currently arrange local service in your area.
When will my credit card be processed?
To provide the fastest possible service, your credit card will be processed immediately when your order is placed. On the rare occasion when a product cannot be shipped immediately, the next shipping date will be displayed at the top of the product page. If you just can’t wait to place an order for a product that isn’t available from our website at the moment, please contact our sales department directly.
What is the status or my order?
You will get a shipment notification emailed to you as soon as your order ships out. If you have any questions or are having trouble tracking your order please give us a call at 877-366-8324.
We ship orders out Monday through Friday. Orders placed after 12 PM CST will ship the next business day. Orders placed over the weekend will be processed and shipped out on Monday.
What are your payment options?
We accept all major credit cards, and PayPal
What is your return policy?
We have a 30-day, no-hassle return policy. If you would like to make a return please call us at 877-366-8324 and we’ll issue you an RMA number with the return instructions.
How many times can I return a product?
We recognize that needs and minds change. Maybe you buy a piece of equipment that isn’t well suited for your system, but then you change your system, stars align, and suddenly it’s perfect for you now. It happens. You can buy the same Emotiva model from us twice under our 30-day, no hassle return policy, but it you buy it again for a third time, it’s final sale.
How do I go about returning my gear?
Repack the unit in its original packaging with all accessories, manuals, etc. Write the RMA number on the box and ship it to:
Emotiva Audio Corporation
135 SE Parkway Court
Franklin, TN 37064
When do I get my refund?
Once we have received your unit(s), and verified they are intact, we will issue a refund for the full purchase amount.
What is an RMA number?
A Returned Material Authorization Number is required to ship products back to us. We will refuse products without an RMA number.

Emotiva Audio Corporation Attn: Repair Department 135 Southeast Parkway Court Franklin, TN 37064
How does state law apply?
This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights, which vary from state to state.
What if my product is damaged on the way to you?
Emotiva is not liable for damages that may incur while an item is en route to us, so please purchase insurance when you ship.
