It’s a whole new generation of Emotiva’s most popular monoblock power amp. Now, you get the immense, relaxed power of the previous XPA-1, together with switchable 60W Class A mode for even more amazing musicality. And, if that wasn’t enough, we upped the power output to 600W into 8 ohms in Class AB mode.
Oh wait, you want it all? Class A sweetness and Class AB power? No problem! When you’re in Class A mode, the XPA-1 Gen 2 seamlessly transitions into Class AB mode when needs demand. This means you can find the sweet spot at practically every volume level—from the softest pianissimo to the full-throated roar of an orchestral crescendo.
And the sound? Even better than the previous generation, thanks to small but significant refinements to our Differential Reference™ circuitry. Now, the finest details are clearly rendered, together with the refinement and finesse you’d expect from a flagship amplifier.
The previous XPA-1 has been called “a beast, a monster, an abominable snowman on steroids.” Now, the XPA-1 Gen 2 has been sent to finishing school. It’s your conduit to the pure power and majesty of music and movies—distilled into a beautifully designed and precision-crafted 73-lb powerhouse.
The XPA-1 Gen 2 is the ultimate expression of our X-Series Gen 2 power amplifiers, reflected in its differential-all-the-way-through design, superior build quality, and even tiny—but meaningful—touches like machined, gold-plated RCA connectors, a high-quality metal toggle switch for input selection, and an informative metering system that can be dimmed or turned off entirely. Every aspect of the XPA-1 Gen 2 has been carefully considered and engineered to deliver an amazing experience, by any measure.
Add a pair of XPA-1 Gen 2s to your system and treat yourself to total musicality, complete immersion, and effortless power.
The XPA-1: Effortless power, refined.
