According to the Emotiva website, the expected ship date is late March so maybe this coming week pre-orders will start to go out. I'm sure as soon as a Lounge member has one in their rack we will hear about it. Since you're thinking about a new XPA-2 Gen 3, maybe you'll be our first reviewer!
I hear about people who buys new models of cars without even trying them out first...... I am not one of them lol! I like to get some imputs first...... But if emotiva would have retailer nearby, where I could hear the products first....... Then my house probably would have emotiva gear in every room hehe! I have the xmc-1 and xpr-5 and the just sound amazing, but in Norway it is not easy to listen to gear before we buy it..... And I dont like to gamble! But if the g3 gets good reviews, and they even compare it to the old xpr series..... Then I dont have to think long
It is three times the price of xpa-2 g3 which has the same specs...... would be nice to compare those two, and see who would win the match!
well the XPA-2 is a 2 channel. The 1807 is 7 channel. Not fair really is it? Compared XPA-2 against ATI 1802. Also the specs of the ATI are better- better SNR, dual transformers (so monobloc arrangement) and lower THD at rated spec.
Approx difference between XPA-2 gen 3 and ATI 1802 is about £100-£200 or so.
Use this site to work out how much the emotiva will cost. The 1802 is 1500 euros.
