Product Description

Emotiva BasX A2 Two Channel Power Amplifier delivers a wide, natural and smooth soundstage, ideal for stereo set-ups. The BasX A2 is audiophile grade, has a heavy-duty linear power supply, a high current short signal path Class A/B output stage, protection circuitry and has many connection types for ultra flexibility.

Why BasX A2 Power Amp?

Emotiva’s BasX A2 is a two channel/stereo Class A/B power amp that delivers a detailed, smooth and natural audio performance. It can be used in a stereo set-up for your left and right channels or with other power amps, particularly other Emotiva BasX models, for a multi channel surround sound system.

Drives All Speakers

With a heavy-duty linear power supply and an oversized toroidal power transformer, the BasX A2 delivers 160w p/ch into 8 Ohms and 250w p/ch into 4 Ohms, which can drive any set of speakers, even the most demanding.

Consistent High Quality Sound

Emotiva’s BasX A2 amp is designed to sound great for all types of music, and for all types of hifi set-ups. It produces an audio performance that is consistent throughout, has a low noise level, wide bandwidth, and with a highly optimized input stage, you can hear every note and nuance your music source delivers.

Silent System Protection

The BasX A2 uses an audiophile-grade fault protection system, which is extremely silent, and protects the amplifier from electrical faults, such as power cuts, surges and faulty power connections.

Input Detection

The BasX A2 power amp features a unique piece of technology that allows the BasX A2 to turn on when an audio signal is detected. This is practically useful if your pre amp doesn’t have a trigger output.

Remote Trigger

Speaking of triggers, you can enable the BasX A2 to control or be controlled by other trigger-enabled equipment with built in remote trigger input and output.

Connection Types

High quality inputs and outputs are featured to allow you to connect the BasX A2 to a number of devices, whilst maintaining a pure and reliable audio signal. Such connections include, high quality, industry standard, unbalanced (RCA) inputs for connection to almost any processor or pre amp, and audiophile-grade, heavy duty, insulated five way speaker binging posts, which accept banana plugs, spade lugs, or bare wire, for connection to a wide range of speakers.

BasX A2 Build

The BasX A2 power amp is constructed with high-grade components that can deliver years of reliable service. It is housed in a heavy steel chassis with a redesigned, milled, aluminum faceplate, which is modern, stylish and fits with the other BasX product ranges and most home decors.

    Excellent expensive looking build quality. Runs silent. Big punchy sound through my Magneplanar LRS+ speakers, Rega CD player. 250 watts at 4 ohm is earth moving power. Not many in this price range with that amount of power. No minus points.
