Product Description

Emotiva BasX A-100 comprises the features that make for great audio equipment, such as powerful power supply, a short path Class A/B amplifier, audio inputs that are unbalanced, and full-sized five-way binding post terminals.

The BasX A-100 is strong enough to deliver 50 watts per channel into 8 Ohms and 80 Watts per channel into 4 Ohms, so you will have ample power to drive the majority of speakers at your chosen listening levels. It also offers several useful extra features that earn it the designation of Flex Amplifier. The BasX A-100 is perfect for use in remote areas since it has a standard trigger input and output, that can be configured to be automatically switched depending on the incoming audio signal.

Headphone Output

BasX A-100 also includes a front panel Volume Control and headphone output. If you are a fan of the vintage sound, you will enjoy the headphone output sound, which takes its power directly from the main amplifier output via precision dropping resistors, similar to the great vintage amplifiers, headphone output. If feel that modern equipment does not produce a great headphone output, then you should hear the A-100.

A significant feature of the headphone output on the A-100 is its ability to drive low-efficiency planar headphones with ease. The A-100 includes internal jumpers that facilitate the amplifier outputting directly to headphones avoiding the need for external adapter cables. The amplifier is super quiet, the circuitry of the A-100 ensures a low noise floor, even with a direct connection.

Why is A-100 a Flex Amp?

The BASX A-100 is a fantastic sounding, yet compact, and flexible, stereo amplifier. The A-100 includes features that make it very versatile irrespective of the listening situations, it can happily drive a small music system, also providing audio for the second zone in large home theatre installation or a music system covering the whole house. Included with the A-100 is a headphone output that performs like high-end vintage equipment, with the performance of modern circuitry, which means you can drive low-efficiency planar headphones without an adapter or custom cables.

Sound Quality First

The A-100 has been specifically designed for high-quality sound irrespective of the music genre. Using a class A/B output stage ensures a smooth, detailed sound and incredibly natural imaging, without any stress or strain. Using a low noise design, with a wide bandwidth means you will hear everything your high definition sources have to offer. The BasX A-100 may be a compact amplifier, but it shares the same superior design and high-quality parts as larger Emotiva amplifiers, so its performance is similar to a large amplifier, which is surprising considering its price and power class.

Flexible Connections

Unbalanced inputs via industry standard RCA connectors accept all standard unbalanced interconnects. The speaker terminals are strong and insulated five-way posts allowing the option of using a  wide range of speaker cables with either bare wires, lugs, or banana plugs.

The A-100 can be configured to switch on automatically when it receives an audio signal. The Trigger Output can be used to pass trigger signals to other components. The BasX A-100 is designed to operate on either 115 VAC or 230 VAC at 50/60Hz. Plus the amplifier has a loop output which facilitates chaining additional amplifiers or other devices together.

Headphone Features

The amplifier features direct headphone output, powered from the main amplifier from high-quality series resistors, which results in a headphone sound similar to what you would hear with vintage amplifiers. The headphone output option direct from the main amplifier means this amplifier is perfect for low-efficiency planar headphones.
