Can anyone give an opinion about the XPA-5 or the Outlaw?

I have the XPA-5 and I have Outlaw monoblocks (I have 7 M2200s) but I do not have the 7125.

Flip a coin, they are both great products!!

Both companies have online forums and will sometimes compare products against each other. Go read there for a while, I'm sure you'll get a ton of useful information.

I did a lot of research on Outlaw (I bought the RR 2150 on their Black Friday Sale with the Music Hall MMF 2.2!!!)

The Model 7125 looks really nice...there's a great review on Ultimate AV, but I couldn't put a link here for it some reason

What will you be running? Why are you looking at a 5 channel amp vs a 7 channel amp or am I mistaken?

Yes it looks like an apple and oranges comparison because the wattage figures are different also. The correct comparison(s) should be:

Emotive UPA-7 125 Watts x 7 for $599
Outlaw 7125 125 Watts x 7 for $999

Emotive XPA-5 200 Watts x 5 for $699
Outlaw 7500 200 Watts x 5 for $1599

Which amp would be best with Magnepan? Also is there another amp (in this price range) that might be better?

more power is ALWAYS better

Get the XPA-5 and buy your wife/spouse/girlfriend/kids/parents something for $1K

You will be a hero to everyone
