Makes you want to smile and scream hallelujah!!! ;D
Yeah, but now your wallet is cringing because you don't have one of these... yet. ;D
Yes, this is one I have not had yet!!! ;D
Not to worry... I think since the last email, I have bought an XPA-3, sold an XPA-5, and bought a RSP-1. I put the XPA-3 in the media room for the surrounds and moved 2 UPA-1s to the game room for the L&R channels.
I have absolutely NO idea what I'm going to do with the RSP-1. BUT, I do still have my Swans... at least for now.....

YES!!! The UPA-7 is getting some love and positive press. Like I've said before I'm an owner of a UPA-7 and often I feel it is like the red-headed step child/underdog of all the Emotiva amps. The 7 was my first piece of Emotiva gear and I hope it will be around for some time. I can't wait to read the full review.

I made the unfortunate mistake of trying to drag the amp a few inches on carpeted flooring for a photo op which caused one of the rubber feet to fall off. I managed to put it back on with little fuss but I wish Emotiva would have secured these just a little bit better. I found even when I tightened the Philips head screw down, it just kept turning. Not a big deal, perhaps I'm picking nits but bottom line, don't drag this amp - pick it up.
First off, I'm surprised that an "Audioholic" would even think of dragging a piece of gear across the floor. For shame! But, seriously, rubber feet that fall off? What kind of crap is Emotiva producing?!?! ;D
Kidding aside, that's a great review. Given that my UPA-5 is essentially the same as the UPA-7, I feel even better about my amp...and I was already feeling pretty darned excellent about it!

Hi All, We're really pleased with Audioholic's review of the UPA-7. It is a great amp.
Regarding crosstalk: The levels he is measuring are well within reasonable limits and are in fact better then many other multi-channel amplifiers. They are not problematic in any way and you will not hear crosstalk as an an artifact or a by product of operation, so do not worry about this.
Enjoy one of the greatest amplifier bargins on the market today! Cheers, Big Dan
Yep, I have 2 UPA 7s, I liked the first one so much I bought another. Congrats on the great write up!
