I don't own either of these amps, but I DO have several Emotiva products, including the XPR-5. XPA Gen 2 makes that choice much more difficult now that the XPA-5 has 29 dB of gain vs. 32 dB for the PA5-200. The PA5 has more capacitance and the longer warranty. Emotiva/Sherbourn makes sense for me because I'm just an hour away from their HQ if I have a problem that needs fixing.
