I have my UPA-1 monoblocks set up for 2 channel listening where they replaced a beautiful pair of McIntosh MC40 monos.
Fed by a Sony ES SACD player Apple airport, Benchmark, and a Technics turntable (SLP1200)as well as an Audio Research LS7 preamp; and finally driving a pair of B&W 602S3 speakers all I can say is that I am very happy with the result.
It provides an effortless performance at anything I throw at it. Voices are real and "in my room" and the drive and rhythm of the music is there to lock on to.
Bloom, is a word i hear about in the magazines. Dont know how it relates to audio when I read it, but in my system I think I could use the word to describe how the music comes out and fills the room, much as a live instrument might.
I have an XPA-5 in my Home theatre system, I have the USP-1 and UPA-2 on order......... and so it seems I cant get enough of Emotiva.
I think there is a chance that some of these amps will become classics in the future.
