AVR – Audio Video Receiver – Build Quality: Part IV – The Emotiva XMC-1 SSP: A Paradigm of a Pre-Pro Implementation
It has been a disappointing time in the AVR world. "Excellent" parts have been substituted by "good parts", and in the majority of cases "average parts" in anything below $3,000.
Emotiva has earned a reputation for delivering great quality products at a substantial value to their customers. Emotiva has come a long way with their processor line, and this review covers the Emotiva XMC-1 Gen 2 which is a 7.2 channel preamplifier/processor (SSP).
The Emotiva XPA-1 Gen 2 is an update to Emotiva's XPA-1 500 watt monoblock amplifier. Improvements include more power (600 watts RMS into 8 ohms), and 60 watts of Class A bias.
The Emotiva ERC-3 Reference CD Player is designed from the ground up to be the reference in which all the rest of your music playing should be compared. Superbly designed chassis, Analog Devices AD1955 joined with fully balanced analog circuitry deliver world-class audio performance.
The Emotiva XPA-1 Gen2 is an update to Emotiva's 1,000 watt per channel monoblock amplifier. There are subtle improvements, from a higher quality RCA jack and electrical changes, but the most noticeable is a switch up front. It allows the XPA-1 to run in Class A for the first 60 watts of power.
Listening to my records one night, I received an email from Susan Johnson asking if I would be willing to review the Emotiva Stealth DC-1. Would I ever! Last year I tried the Emotiva USP-1 preamp and UPA-200 amp in my system and I have been very happy with the combination. Needless to say I was very curious to see and hear this reference piece from Emotiva.
After releasing a 500 watt monoblock power amplifier, the XPA-1, Emotiva didn't stop there. The newest addition to their monoblock power amplifier line is the XPR-1, which delivers 1,000 watts RMS into 8 Ohms. It may strain your back to move it, but it will set you back only $1,500.
