Emotiva Launches New Reference Quality Amplifier Lineup With the Five-Channel XPR-5

Featuring 400 Watts Per Channel Output And Massive 3.3 kVA Optimized Class H™ Toroidal Power Supply, XPR-5 Is Epitome Of Power, Efficiency, And Performance

FRANKLIN, TN, July 24, 2012-Building on the excitement generated by the announcement of its flagship XMC-1 Preamplifier/Processor, Emotiva Audio Corporation, the company whose passion for impeccable sound is manifest in every product bearing its name, today announced the XPR-5 Five-Channel Reference Power Amplifier.

Designed to be as visually appealing as it is sonically captivating, the XPR-5 features a faceplate constructed of 25 millimeters of solid billet aluminum, tooled, machined, engraved, and finished like fine jewelry. A high performance metering system consisting of 60 dimmable dual-color LEDs hidden behind a smoked polycarbonate window, along with variable intensity Reference Series accent lighting, complete an aesthetic that is recognizably Emotiva, yet indisputably one of a kind.

The stunning design merely hints at the impressive amplification technology within. The XPR-5 boasts five high-efficiency Class AB power amplifier modules powered by a massive 3.3 kVA Optimized Class H™ toroidal power supply with astounding power reserves. All of the internal electronics are controlled, monitored, and protected by an advanced ARM-7 microprocessor with a custom operating system for absolute reliability. The result is an incredible and effortless 400 watts per channel into eight Ohms, and 600 watts per channel into four Ohms, when all five channels are driven, with vanishingly low noise and distortion, unparalleled efficiency, and an astonishing amount of headroom.

""The XPR-5 was designed for those systems where 200 watts per channel simply isn't enough, whether due to room size, or difficult-to-drive speakers," says Dan Laufman, President of Emotiva. "There's no denying that this amplifier is a beast-and a beautiful beast at that. I defy anyone to find another five-channel amp that delivers this much clean, efficient, reliable, and pristine power at anywhere near this price point."

Rounding out the XPR-5's impressive feature set is a clean, elegant back panel with five independently switchable balanced (XLR) and unbalanced ( solid machine , audiophile quality, gold plated RCA) inputs; massive heavy duty audiophile speaker binding posts with clear acrylic insulators and gold-plated contacts, designed to accept heavy-gauge bare cables, lugs, or banana plugs; 12V trigger inputs and outputs; an input voltage switch; and an IEC receptacle for the amp's requisite 20A power cable.

The Emotiva XPR-5 is available now for a retail price of $1999, exclusively at www.emotiva.com.
