Item: Pair of Emotiva XPA-1 Gen1 monoblock amplifiers - BEASTS Location: Williamstown Victoria Price: $2100 for the pair (New model is $2399 ea!!!) Item Condition: 9 out of 10 Reason for selling: NLR Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I seriously stopped and asked myself whether I wanted to sell these beasts... because really, can you ever have enough power!!! 500 watts into 8 Ohms 1000 watts into 4 Ohms - Yes the magic doubling of watts as the Ohms halve!!! Massive 1.2 KVA toroidal power transformer Completely stable into 4 Ohm loads 34kg of hulking, bruising power Fully balanced differential amplifier XLR and RCA inputs Each amp has dual speaker binding posts so you can bi wire with seperate cables if you choose Powerful enough to drive pretty much any speaker you're able to fit in your home, this amp showed that Emotiva could play with the big boys. With a fully balanced differential design, the XPA-1 has an advanced microprocessor operating system that protects it from all fault conditions. Quality build and attention to detail you'd find in amplifiers cost much more. Its truly a high quality amplifier, that isnt just about braun, and put Emotiva on the map as a creator of quality and great sounding hi-fi components. I've had these amps running off many pre-amps, into many different speakers, and they never fail to catch my breath with their power, control, finesse, subtlety and rhythm. I've been listening to them all day to test them... originally was only going to put them on for 15 minutes, but got drawn into listening to them through my Monitor Audio PL300ii speakers, they're just that good. These amps scale up really well with quality speakers, so rather than their shortcomings becoming apparent, they end up staying in your system while many other components are upgraded. The Emotiva is the proverbial iron fist in a velvet glove. You can never get enough of having all that power in reserve - its not about playing loud, its about dynamics and effortlessness that you cant achieve any other way. If you have power hungry speakers, or you just want to be certain you have plenty of headroom when you play orchestral pieces with pipe organ, this power amplifier will do the job. Current price of $2399 per monoblock can be found at: https://vaf.com.au/products/emotiva-xpa-1-reference-mono-block These amps are in great condition - I've said 9 out of 10 only because they're not new. These amps have also just been in for a service and clean. • All binding posts have been replaced as a couple of the plastic collars had cracked due to over tightening - I think they came in a set so the tech just replaced them all • An RCA socket was also replaced as it had come loose due to a stupidly tight Chord cable I used to have The amps have never played up and have worked consistently without a hitch, so it was only these items that needed attention. The lucky buyer will have serviced and fully tested amps Yes I have the boxes and the instruction manual. These amps are really heavy, and I mean REALLY HEAVY. So if you want them couriered to you it will cost you as they are just over 40kg ea packed. I'll be really sad to see them go, but time to clear out my gear, make space for upgrades - and get some money to pay for them! Donation made to SNA on successful sale of amps.
