The Emotiva Mini-X A-100 is no longer in production, and will not be re-ordered. It has been replaced by the Emotiva BasX A-100.
The BasX A-100 is a direct replacement for the Mini-X A-100 in all applications. It is functionally and cosmetically similar, but the performance is improved and some features have been added.
Front panel headphone jack with auto-switching (main amp outputs muted)
Headphone output is driven from the Class-AB X-Series-derived amplifier
Internal jumper provides selectable direct drive of low-sensitivity headphones or driving of conventional headphones thru a dropping resistor.
The amplifier signal-to-noise ratio has been significantly improved, through intensive tweaking of the design
Driving of conventional headphones via dropping resistor mimics the performance characteristics of desirable vintage electronics when interacting with a headphone load. Headphones which rely on electrical damping may experience a beneficial tonal shift when driven using the dropping resistor, while headphones with acoustical damping as the dominant damping mechanism (flatter impedance curve) will experience less of this change.
Please feel free to discuss the new BasX A-100 amplifier in the BasX amplifier subforum.
