FS: Emotiva XPA-2 Gen 1 $575 w/Free Shipping and Fees
I'm selling my Gen 1 XPA-2 amp. I'm the second owner and I've had it about 3 years so it's likely 6-7 years old. It performs flawlessly. I'd rate it an 8/10. It has the silver rack ears. Just contact me for photos. It's in good visible condition and I haven't moved it since I put it in my cabinet (its a beast). The only slight issue is that the speaker binding posts are a bit loose on the inside. If you use bananas I recommend using locking bananas to get a secure fit. I use bluejeans speaker cables with locking bananas with this amp and I get a great secure fit. I have the original box and packing for the amp and I will include shipping in the lower 48 states as well as PayPal fees -- if purchased at my asking price of $575. My price is firm as I'm in no hurry to sell and you can't find a beast of an amp like this at this price. I'll probably regret selling it...
"That being said, the XPA-2 exceeded its power specifications by considerable margins. Into 8 ohms it was rated to 250 watts at 1% THD , yet I measured 312 watts at 0.1% THD. Into 4 ohm loads it was rated to 500 watts at 1% THD while again my measurements exceeded this rating producing 512 watts at 0.1% THD. Make no mistake folks this is one POWERFUL amplifier and most definitely the most power for the money amplifier that has ever come across my test bench since..."
