At first you did open up a can of worms, untill I read it a couple of times. I still got the cobbwebs going on from last nights partying. I am so bummed. I just called Emotiva to order the UPA 700 and to try to figure out why I cant get rid of all the empty space under my posts. Just to find out their closed on the weekends. That sucks . I guess I have to wait till Monday.I think I'll be happy with the 700 like I said I am not after ear bleeding loudness. I am after sound Quality. My supposed 100 x 5 watt reciever (and we all know what the real wattage is 35-40 maybe) has already had the cops called on me a few times. Let me know what you think of the 700 when you get it.Mine will probably in route at the time.

Depends what the user is running for speakers and efficiency, as well as use. If you want it super loud and are not concerned about clarity, go for the higher gain stage. Same scenario with non efficient speakers. I had called Emotiva and asked some questions in the past, before I had ordered the XPA-200, and was advised to not get the XPA-2 for my fronts, after the guy looked up what speakers I had. He told me that with the patented design on the Infinity Primus 362 model, that he would go with a lower gain stage due to the frequency response accuracy in the tweeters and how efficient the speakers were (or it might give undesirable distortion in the tweeter). He did not upsell me, and told me that the XPA-200 would be my best choice. Go with what your use is, there is a good piece of a gear for certain uses and not other uses. Hopefully I did not open a can of worms in your mind.
