Product Description

Emotiva XPA Gen3 is an audiophile power amplifier which can be configured with exactly the number and type of amplifier channels you need. Whichever configuration you select, your XPA Gen3 amplifier will deliver the same rare combination of excellent technical performance and superb sound quality, which makes it the perfect solution for listening to your favorite multi-channel music or for listening to movie soundtracks in a high-end home theater system.

Each XPA Gen3 amplifier chassis can be populated with anywhere between two and seven modules, each of which can be a High-Powered Single Channel Module or a Stereo Module. Modules of both types can be combined in the same chassis, offering you unheard-of flexibility to build the exact amplifier configuration you need.

The Power Supply

XPA Gen3 features new high-current switch mode power supply (SMPS) - a lightweight, powerful, intelligent design capable of delivering over 3 kW of continuous power with absolute reliability and extremely high efficiency. Cutting edge SMPS offers the dynamic attributes of a classic transformer-based design with none of the drawbacks. Like the best transformer-based power supplies, SMPS delivers plenty of continuous power to enable amplifier modules to live up to their full performance potential and plenty of dynamic power to ensure that musical peaks will never be compressed or limited. However, compared to transformer-based designs, SMPS is lighter and more efficient; it’s also fully regulated, which ensures optimum performance under a wider range of load conditions.

Great Amp Series

XPA Gen3’s unique differential input stage, with cross-linked current sources, drives a balanced voltage amplification stage and this advanced input circuitry delivers an incredibly accurate and pure audio signal to the complementary, fully discrete output stage. Together they deliver a holistic, natural, and powerful listening experience. Low-level musical details and dialogue emerge from a deep black background; musical crescendos are delivered with both stunning impact and precision. The wide bandwidth, low distortion performance of the XPA Gen3 reveals every nuance of your high-resolution music sources and it has plenty of power to drive even difficult loudspeakers with absolute authority and control.

Class A/B Sound

Both amplifier modules used in the XPA Gen3 utilize a fully analog Class A/B output stage. The High-Powered Single Channel Modules utilise highly regarded Soft-Switch Class H power supply topology, which increases their efficiency significantly without compromising the audio performance you’d expect from an Emotiva amplifier. They operate on a lower supply voltage at low power levels to minimise quiescent power consumption and standby power losses, instantly switching to a higher voltage rail when needed to ensure the signal passes cleanly and without clipping. This process happens on a continuous basis in real time, allowing greater overall efficiency, cooler operation, longer component life, reduced power consumption, and increased reliability. The Stereo Modules each deliver two completely independent channels of pure Class A/B audio power, and sonically are perfectly matched to the High-Powered Single Channel Modules.

Dedicated Power Amplifier

Emotiva amplifier modules are designed to reproduce today’s high definition movie sound tracks and music sources with awesome realism, amazing finesse and precision, and without the slightest hint of strain or signal compression. Specially designed 3 kW switch mode power supply delivers the tightly regulated continuous power and massive reserves of dynamic power necessary to enable amplifier modules to perform to their ultimate potential. Together they deliver an experience that simply cannot be matched by multi-purpose components like receivers. Real-world power and fidelity that you can immediately hear and appreciate.

Made in the USA

The XPA Gen3 is designed, assembled, and tested in the USA, using the finest materials and latest technologies to bring you world-class products. Each Emotiva amplifier is carefully engineered and designed with premium components to deliver a stunningly capable, reliable, and refined system.

Modular Construction

The XPA Gen3 modular power amplifier is comprised of a heavy-duty chassis, which houses the oversized power supply, and up to seven amplifier modules. The XPA Gen3 can be purchased with anywhere between two and seven amplifier modules installed, and additional amplifier modules may be installed as more channels of amplification are needed (up to a maximum of seven modules). The front panel display and protection system are designed to work with the maximum number of channels and so need not be updated when the XPA Gen3 is expanded; on the rear panel, slots not occupied by amplifier modules will be covered with protective cover panels.
