The power amplifier performs the simple but critical job of boosting the output signals from each channel of your stereo preamp or surround sound processor to the level necessary to drive your loudspeakers. While this may seem trivial, a really good power amp is essential to having a great audio system, because any flaws in the performance of your power amp are going to limit the performance of your entire system. Every amplifier in the new Third Generation XPA series was carefully designed to deliver superb technical performance, unsurpassed sound quality, and an exceptionally accurate and dynamic rendition of all types of music, thus ensuring that your entire system will sound its absolute best. Each individual XPA amplifier is modular, and can be customized to provide exactly the power and number of channels you need today, and expanded later if your needs change; and multiple matching chassis enable you to add even more channels, or more power, for a near endless variety of options.
The new XPA-5 is a five-channel audiophile quality power amplifier, and is perfect for powering:
- A superb high-end 5.1 channel system
- The 5 main channels in a 5.1.2. 5.1.4, or 5.1.6 channel Dolby Atmos or DTS-X system
For a truly stellar system, optimized for both two channel and surround sound listening, consider combining an XPA-DR2 for the front left and right channels with an XPA-5 for the remaining channels.

Regulated Switch Mode Power Supply (SMPS)
One of the design enhancements shared by all of Emotivas new XPA power amplifiers is their new, specially designed, high current, switch mode power supply (SMPS). Emotivas powerful, intelligent new power supply offers all of the benefits of a classic transformer-based design, but avoids virtually all of the limitations. It can deliver over 3 kW of fully regulated power, which ensures optimum performance under a wide
