Listened to two of them today at Emotiva HQ in Franklin. One word, awesome. I also met Dan Laufman, shook his hand, and bought my new XPA-5 along with 5 sets of rca's and a free HDMI, my origional reason for going there today. What a great day I had. Matt Wall was the sales rep that provided me a great opportunity to listen to all of the Emotiva stuff that was in their theater room. It is a great company, friendly and willing to bend over backwards to help a new customer become a long time customer. My new amp is still in it's box, I know, I should be hooking it up. I have to rearrange my equipment in order to make this beast of an amp fit along with a medical issue where lifting is not a real good idea. I borrowed a hand cart from the school I work at to get it in the house. (90 lbs). Should have it running tomorrow. More reviews then. Speakers are B & W 603 S3's. A little over kill in the amp department but it's better then the amps in the Denon 2807 I was using. In the near future I will get the EMC 1. Eventually an XF-12 will accompany to replce my ASW 600. Then my system should be complete.
