Why not try the XPA-5 in your own home for 30 days then decide? If you find it isn't for you ship it back for a full refund. The cost of shipping it back is minuscule compared to buying an amp at 3x the price of the XPA-5 and not getting an amp that sounds any better. I've owned many of Emotiva's amps - including the XPA-5 and found it to be as good as some very expensive amps. I've compared Emo amps to some very nice Acurus amps and found no real differences.
I'd never go by what some 'shop' said - they don't make money on Emotiva amps since they don't sell them. There is a couple of threads here that users have given their opinions of Emotiva amps and not too many have found the XPA amps lacking in any way. I'm powering my own home system with a UPA-500 and a UPA-2.
