Emotiva BasX A-500 5 Channel Power Amplifier

The BasX A-500 is a five channel power amplifier that offers true audiophile sound quality at an affordable price. The BasX A-500 includes a carefully chosen set of important features, including a heavy-duty power supply, high-quality Class A/B amplification, transparent audiophile-quality fault protection, a trigger input and output, and industry standard unbalanced audio inputs. Modern manufacturing techniques, and careful design and parts selection, have enabled us to deliver all of this performance and great sound quality in the BasX A-500 at a far lower price than you might imagine.

The BasX A-500 delivers 110 watts RMS per channel at less than 0.1% THD into 8 ohms (two channels driven); THD+N of less than 0.02%; and a signal to noise ratio of 120 dB referenced to full power. This makes the BasX A-500 the ideal amplifier to power a great sounding 5.1 channel surround sound system, a great way to upgrade the power amplifier section of your AVR, and a perfect companion to our MC-700 surround sound processor.

Sound Quality First

Designed first and foremost to sound great in all types of audio systems with all types of music.
Great sounding Class A/B output stage ensures smooth, detailed sound and incredibly natural imaging, without a trace of harshness or strain.
Low noise, wide bandwidth design lets you hear everything your high definition sources have to offer.
Totally stable with real world speakers in real systems; not just on a test bench.
Solid Engineering And Quality Construction
    A heavy duty linear power supply with an oversized toroidal power transformer delivers plenty of current to drive even difficult speakers.
    Top quality parts and construction throughout for years of reliable trouble-free service.
    Heavy steel 2RU chassis with milled aluminum faceplate offers strength and rugged good looks.
    Double sided FR4 circuit boards with plated-through holes help optimize signal paths and minimize the need for point-to-point wiring.
    Flexible Signal Connections and Power Options
    Unbalanced inputs via industry standard RCA connectors accept all standard unbalanced interconnects.
    Heavy duty insulated five-way speaker binding posts allow you to use a wide range of speaker cables with bare wires, lugs, or banana plugs.
    Remote trigger input and output allow the BasX A-500 to control and be controlled by other trigger-enabled equipment.
    The BasX A-500 is designed to operate on either 115 VAC or 230 VAC at 50/60 Hz and will automatically detect and configure itself for the proper line voltage.
    Protection
    Audiophile-grade fault protection is entirely transparent under normal listening conditions, yet protects the amp and your other equipment from virtually all common faults.
    Full three-year warranty ensures that you’ll be able to enjoy your BasX power amplifier for years to come.
