Product Description

Emotiva BasX A-700 is a multi-channel power amplifier, supporting 7 speakers, with audiophile quality sound at an affordable price. Featuring a top quality class A/B amplifier at its heart, which is powered by a heavy-duty power supply, transparent audiophile-quality fault protection, input and output auto triggers, and unbalanced audio inputs which are industry standard.

Power Output

BasX A-700 is highly capable, delivering 110 watts (RMS) per channel, with total harmonic distortion (THD) less than 0.1%, into 8 ohms, with two channels driven. The total harmonic distortion plus noise (THD+N) is itself less than 0.02% and with an SNR (signal to noise ratio) of 120 decibels referenced at full power. Therefore,  the BasX A-700 is a perfect amplifier for an audiophile level 7.1 home theatre system, or it is a versatile addition to your system, to upgrade the power amplifier section of your AV receiver.  The A-700 is the perfect partner to Emotiva's MC-700 sound processor.

BasX: Superb Audio

The ethos of Emotiva is giving everyone access to audiophile level sound irrespective of their budget, that will enrich their life. All BasX products are a combination of top quality components, really useful needed features, amazing acoustic performance, with an elegant stylish design.

If you wish, you could build an entire system out of only BasX products, that is guaranteed to give you a true audiophile listening experience. Alternatively just try one BasX and notice the change you will heart with your existing system.  The 'take home message' from Emotiva is that quality sounding audio does not have to be complicated or expensive.

BasX Simplicity

Whilst the BasX A-700 offers lots of audio performance and features, you will not need an advanced audio degree to set it up or use it. Including a removable power cable that is heavy-duty and industry standard IEC, means you can upgrade it at a later date should you desire. Setting up the A-700 is so simple, connect it to power, connect your preamplifier or processor and the speakers, and sit back and enjoy the music.

Circuit Topology

The BasX A-700 combines traditional amplifier architecture, based on a heavy-duty linear power supply, and a carefully designed high current short signal path Class A/B output stage, with an advanced microprocessor, that monitors and controls the protection circuitry, which delivers superb sound quality at a truly reasonable price.

Quality Construction

To produce 110 watts of power the A-700 uses a linear heavy duty power supply, which is fitted with a huge oversized toroidal transformer, capable of driving even difficult hungry speakers. Plus, utilising top quality parts throughout and the careful construction ensures the A-700 will be with you for many years, giving you reliable and consistent service.

The material quality of BasX products extends to the exterior of the unit, the chassis is made from steel (Heavy steel 2RU) the faceplate is milled from aluminium, which gives strength and a sturdy aesthetic. The circuit boards are double-sided FR4 boards, with through holes that minimises the signal paths and reduces the need for point-to-point wiring.


The inputs are industry standard unbalanced RCA connectors which accept all standard unbalanced interconnects. The speaker output terminals are five-way and insulated heavy duty which allows you to use a wide range of speaker terminations, from the regular banana plugs, bare wires, or lugs. The A-700 also features automatic triggers for both inputs and outputs, so the A-700 can control and be controlled by another trigger-enabled kit.

The BasX A-700 is multi-voltage, operating at either 115 VAC or 230 VAC at 50/60 Hz, automatically detecting and switching itself to the correct voltage.

Press Reviews

  • "I used the A-700 with my regular Yamaha RX-A3040 receiver, via the latter's pre outs. Straight away, with a quintet of Elision satellite speakers, the power amp immediately demonstrated that it had more gain at any given volume increment than the internal amplifiers of the Yamaha... the Emotive proved superb at responding to dynamic shifts in the soundtrack... This ability to effortlessly relay major dynamic swings is something that really helps movie sound mixes convince. The tonality is consistently accurate and believable... The Emotive offers fuss-free power and deeply impressive audio performance at a bargain price." (Home Cinema Choice Magazine, November 2017)
