      The Emotiva XPA-2 Gen3 is a two-channel audiophile power amplifier. The XPA-3 Gen3 offers excellent technical performance, and an exceptionally accurate and dynamic rendition of all types of music, which makes it the perfect choice for both stereo and surround sound music systems.

      The XPA-2 Gen3 features two of our High-Powered Single Channel Modules – for a total of two high-powered channels. This makes it the ideal amplifier for a superb stereo system, or to power the critical front main channels of a great surround sound or home theater sound system. The XPA-2 Gen3 delivers 300 Watts RMS into 8 Ohms or 490 Watts RMS into 4 Ohms with both channels driven; and, because it’s modular, you can add up to five additional amplifier modules to the XPA-2 Gen3 when you decide you need them.

      The Power Supply: The Foundation Of A Great Amplifier

      In amplifier design, everything starts with the power supply. The XPA-2 Gen3 features our 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. Our 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, our SMPS delivers plenty of continuous power to enable our 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, our SMPS is lighter and more efficient; it’s also fully regulated, which ensures optimum performance under a wider range of load conditions.  

      Circuit Topology

      • The XPA-2 Gen3 is a fully modular audio power amplifier with a high-efficiency switch mode power supply (SMPS), independent, fully discrete, dual differential, high current, short signal path Class A/B amplifier modules, Optimized Class H™ power supply topology, and microprocessor-controlled fault protection.

      • The XPA-2 is powered by a high efficiency, audiophile grade, Switch Mode Power Supply (SMPS).
