You know there are certain audio products that defy what many may have thought, and said. The XPA-5 confounds the regular convention of spending large to get large. It is the real thing, and for those who got in on one can celebrate its capability. And when you can be recommended by so many including "Recommended Component" in Stereophile, being on the map forever just about sums it up. XPA-5. Great Amplifier, and another great Emotiva Classic. Has great company with the XPA-2, XPA-1,DC-1, Stealths, Airmotiv, and more. Seems greatness runs big in the Emotiva family. And yep, Emotiva is going to do more. Lots more. I am excited.
Have a gen 1 with 25-30 hrs in the closet for over 4 yrs. I couldn't let it go. Glad I didn't. I should get it back in system soon.
Shame shame shame shame on you, the XPA-5 deserves better
I buy when the price is right and I can afford. I live and work on the road (jobsite to jobsite) the last 23 yrs. 8 yrs in motels and last 15 in a camper. In the last 10 yrs I have acquired everything I need for a home and stored. Just purchased my first house (a fixer upper that will take up to a yr for me to fix) a couple months ago getting ready to retire. Can you imagine having to buy "EVERYTHING" you need at one time ! What you think is a shame, I think was a good investment . BTW...I will retire in 2 yrs at 55 (can still work if I need or want too). I am debt free as I have paid cash for and including house and repairs (minus 2 vehicles) my entire life for all that I have, and I have nice stuff. Life is good
