          Benefits of Emotiva XPA-DR2 Differential Reference™ Two-Channel Power Amplifier:

          The Power Supply: The Foundation Of A Great Amplifier
          The Power Supply: The Foundation Of A Great Amplifier

          In the amplifier design, everything starts with the power supply. The XPA-DR2 features a custom-configured version of high-current switch-mode power supply (SMPS) - a lightweight, powerful, intelligent design capable of delivering over 3 kW of continuous power with absolute reliability and extremely high efficiency. Emotiva's cutting edge SMPS offers the dynamic attributes of a classic transformer-based design with none of the drawbacks. Like the best transformer-based power supplies, the SMPS delivers plenty of continuous power to enable our amplifier modules to live up to their full performance potential, and plenty of dynamic power to ensure that musical peaks will never be compressed or limited. However, compared to transformer-based designs, the SMPS is lighter and more efficient; it’s also fully regulated, which ensures optimum performance under a wider range of load conditions.

          The Latest In A Long Line Of Great Amplifiers
          The Latest In A Long Line Of Great Amplifiers

          The Differential Reference Amplifier Modules we use in our XPA-DR amplifiers use the same basic circuit topology as our legendary XPR series amplifiers. A unique differential input stage, with a cross-linked current source, drives a balanced voltage amplification stage, and this advanced input circuitry delivers an incredibly accurate and pure audio signal to the complementary, fully discrete output stage. A pair of these modules work together in perfect synergy to power a single channel of one of our new fully balanced, fully differential, XPA-DR amplifiers. Together they deliver a holistic, natural, and powerful listening experience.  Low-level musical details and dialogue emerge from a deep black background; musical crescendos are delivered with both stunning impact and precision. The wide bandwidth, low distortion performance of the XPA-DR2 reveals every nuance of your high-resolution music sources, and it has plenty of power to drive even difficult loudspeakers with absolute authority and control.

          Class A/B Sound Quality Meets Optimized Class H Efficiency

          The Differential Reference™ Modules in the XPA-DR2 each use utilize a matched pair of amplifier modules, each of which features fully analog Class A/B output stage, and highly regarded Soft-Switch™ Class H power supply topology, which increases their efficiency significantly without compromising the audio performance you’d expect from an Emotiva amplifier. The output stage in each operates on a lower supply voltage at low power levels to minimize quiescent power consumption and standby power losses, instantly switching to a higher voltage rail when needed to ensure the signal passes cleanly and without clipping. 

          The Benefits Of A Fully Differential Balanced Power Amplifier

          Most experts agree that, if you want the absolute best sound quality and technical performance, you should use dedicated separate components. Because power amplifiers are designed for a single purpose, we can concentrate on ensuring that they perform that one task very well, and avoid the compromises inherent in products that are expected to perform a variety of different functions. The Differential Reference Modules in the XPA-DR2 are each made up of a perfectly symmetrical balanced pair of high-performance amplifier modules. Each individual amplifier module already has vanishingly low distortion but, by connecting them as a balanced differential pair, a significant portion of the tiny amount of remaining nonlinearity is canceled out. As a result, we are able to achieve even lower levels of distortion in the XPA-DR2, resulting in remarkably transparent sound, with unprecedented smoothness and clarity. When you put it all together, the XPA-DR2 is simply the finest stereo amplifier we can devise, and when is sure you will be as impressed with its performance as we are.

          Modular Construction

          Each XPA-DR Differential Reference™ Power Amplifier is comprised of a heavy-duty chassis, which houses our massively over-designed, fully regulated, 3 kW switch mode power supply, and up to three Differential Reference™ Amplifier Modules. The front panel display and protection system are designed to work with the maximum number of channels, and so need not be updated when the XPA-DR is expanded; on the rear panel, slots not occupied by amplifier modules will be covered with protective cover panels. (Because the XPA-DR2 is configured with two Differential Reference Modules, one additional module can be added later if desired).
