    Pretty big rookie here so I've got a few questions. I currently own an Onkyo TX-NR818. Onkyo claims it is capable of 135 W (8 ohms, 20 Hz-20 kHz, 0.08%, 2 channels driven, FTC). More specs seen at: http://www.onkyo.ca/Products/model.php?m=TX-NR818&class=Receiver Frankly, I am confused as to...

    I am looking to spend somewhere around the $500 dollar mark to upgrade my system. Being a rookie I really need some advice as to which components really should recieve the attention. I have been looking most at an amplifier but was also looking at my subs. My current system is: - Onkyo...

    Hi Everyone, Currently I'm driving a 5.1 setup with two Polk RITA9's in the front, and the CSI A6 in the centre. My back towers are decent infinities, but nothing special. I've been told my Pioneer Amp VSX-926k is holding my setup back, and the Emotiva XPA-3 was recommended. This is a very...

    I have an Onkyo 818 and recently purchased an Emotiva XPA-3 for my front 3. I'll be adding a set of front wides now but I'm wondering are these typically considered more of a surround speaker or an extension of the L/R? Is it vital to have the wides be in the same speaker family as the L/R? I'd...

    Hey everyone, im new here and have a question. I currently have an Onkyo tx-nr808 and I am wanting to spend some money. I can get a good deal on a Pioneer Elite sc-75 and sell my Onkyo or I can buy a new Emotiva XPA-5 or XPA-3 to use with my Onkyo. Im no pro at this stuff but I have been...

     All three are within the amount I can spend but I also don’t want to pay for things I don’t need.   4520ci vs SR7008 vs X4000 with an Emotiva XPA-3 to run the F/R/C   My main concern with these receivers is which one will have (if any) the most noticeable best sound quality when listening...

     After careful research, I've decided to go with his 3 channel amp to drive my front 3 speakers. A few quick questions as this will be my first amp ever.   1) Do I get XLR to RCA or RCA to RCA? 2) Will the receiver be ample enough to power the rears accordingly or will they sound...

     Just pulled the trigger on a revel surround F208s, C208, and M105s. I have a Denon x4000 and am wondering if that would be enough power. It will be 75% movies/tv. I sit about 15 feet from the speakers and the room has no back wall. it goes right into the kitchen area.   a few other...

    Anyone have experience with both the Emotiva XPA3 and the Outlaw Model 2200. Price for the XPA3 vs three of the 2200s is pretty close. Which way would you go to power your front stage (with receiver powering the other four speakers)? Thanks.

    How is Emotiva XPA-3 amp with Emotiva USP-1 stereo preamp with a pair of Polk Audio RTI A3? How good is that? Is it just OK? Or is it considered the best by most or all of the users on here?
  15. Receivers, Amps, and Processors
    Anyone running this combination? I am thinking about getting this amp but sort of confused on what is the best way to connect them together. On the back of the XPA-3 I see a single rca with a separate xlr but on the Denon pre-out there are R/L rca connections and no XLR.

    Hi I was looking 1st at the Emotiva XPA-5 + UMC200, but I realized an AVR could be used as well (pre-out for the L/C/R) and AVR for surrounds What are your recommendations? I need upscaling by the way since I have a Wii and a PS2 And a 110V/220V power supply would be a plus.....but not a...

     I wanted to share my experiences with Emotiva products and services in the hopes that others can avoid their highly questionable product quality and service. I purchased an XPA-3 in 2010. I live in an apartment (for now), so while I do enjoy listening critically, I haven't yet fully...

    I have asked a similar question in the past but no one gave me a straight forward answer. How much of a difference would an Emotiva Amp make compared to a receiver in terms of sound quality. I currently have the Pioneer VSX-1123 but I am considering switching it to the Yamaha V773 because I...

    Currently have a 7.3 set up with a 4311 and Adcom 555 powering the left and right. Thinking about adding a Emotiva XPA-3 for the center and surrounds. Or XPA-5 an adding back surrounds. Worth it? One of my subs is a THT.

    I have a Russound CAM 6.6x with 5 zones connected. I'd like to use the extra zone to drive a pair of JBL loudspeakers in a garage gym. Can I use the line level output on the CAM 6.6 to the XPA-3?
