More Information


The Emotiva XPA-DR3 is a high-powered three-channel audiophile power amplifier that combines the exceptional accuracy and finesse of a true balanced differential design with the power you need to deliver musical crescendos and movie special effects with stunning realism and impact. Whatever your listening preferences, the XPA-DR3 will give you the combination of detail and power than only a fully differential amplifier can provide.

The XPA-DR3 features three of Emotiva's Differential Reference™ Amplifier Modules, and is the ideal choice to power the critical front three channels of an absolutely awesome surround sound music or home theatre system. The XPA-DR3 delivers 450 watts RMS into 8 Ohms, and 600 watts RMS into 4 Ohms, all three channels driven, with less than 0.1% THD.

Most experts agree that, if you want the absolute best sound quality and technical performance, you should use dedicated separate components. Because Emotiva's power amplifiers are designed for a single purpose, they 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-DR3 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 cancelled out. As a result, Emotiva 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-DR3 is simply the finest three-channel amplifier Emotiva can devise, and they are sure you’ll be as impressed with its performance as Emotiva are.
