Founded by Dan Laufman in Franklin Tennessee, Emotiva is an American high-end audio engineering and manufacturing company with one specific goal: to create high quality, awesome-sounding, home theatre, hi-fi and audio products which every audiophile can afford to buy and enjoy. The underlying philosophy was based on this question: “Why does high-end audio and video have to be so expensive?”
Why indeed! As high-end equipment became more and more out of reach for the average audiophile Dan decided to do something about it. The company was named for the emotional connection with music and film that he possessed, and that emotion was the key motivational factor in creating the company and making high-level performance more affordable.
How? Dan put everything he had learned about manufacturing efficiency and his experience in working with the best engineers in the industry into his new venture. When the company hit the Australian market it was like a breath of fresh air and opened up the market to more people than ever before.
Emotiva comprises a team of passionate audio enthusiasts, engineers and A/V product specialists working together to deliver the ultimate home entertainment experience without breaking the bank. It’s all about creating the best bang-for-your-buck and in the high-end audio and video marketplace you won’t find better.
Should you consider buying an Emotiva amplifier? Here at Sight and Sound we think that’s a definite yes. As the heart of your system, you want to choose an amp which will deliver top performance for years to come, while at the same time being modular and easily upgradable. Emotiva power amps meet that brief perfectly. Whether you choose the A-300, A-500, or A-700 which have few controls or more high-end products such as the XPA and XPA-DR, choosing an Emotiva amplifier is a wise decision.
If you have limited funds…or even if they are not so limited…you absolutely must try the A-100. Rated at 50 watts per channel into 8 Ohms this compact stereo power amp has everything you need and nothing you don’t need. Just connect it to a preamp or processor and your speakers and enjoy superb audio without complication or fuss. With the ability to switch on automatically when it detects an incoming audio signal it is also suitable for use in a remote zone.
To compliment the range of Emotiva amps there are several pre amp, processor and integrated models available, all built to the same high standards and delivering value for money. These include the TA-100 Stereo Preamp/DAC/Tuner with Integrated Amplifier, XSP-1 Differential Reference Preamp and SP-1 Phono Preamplifier.
