  1. This is still available, a very nice amp.
  2. It was occasionally and intermittently losing all power. The technician at Emotiva re-soldered some connections to repair the problem as well giving the unit a complete checkup.
  3. This is now sold XPA-2 Gen 1, no scratches or flaws, beautiful mint condition. This is just back from Emotiva where it was completely gone through, cleaned and serviced and still has a short servicing warranty. It looks great and is in extremely nice mint condition, I can't see a single flaw anywhere. Sounds excellent. It is a Gen 1 with new style Gen 2 black trim pieces installed, I will also include the original silver Gen 1 trim pieces. I have the original double boxes and packaging for shipping. Comes with cord, extra silver trim pieces, in original packaging. Price is $650.00 plus actual shipping costs or can be picked up locally in Orange county California. Please note shipping on these very heavy beasts is very expensive. I paid $160.00 just to ship it to Emotiva in Tennessee from California. It's a great amp and in beautiful flawless condition!
  4. I am the original owner of my RF-5's which I bought about 20 years ago, they still look like new and sound even better. I've always enjoyed the sound of my RF-5's and as I've upgraded my system over the years my RF-5's are the only thing that I haven't changed they just keep sounding much better along with the other upgrades I have made. I've made a lot of changes to my system and done a lot of upgrading but my RF-5's just sound more amazing with the upgrades. The RF-5's are a very well balanced and natural sounding speakers that work so well for both 2 channel and home theater. For music they can have a very nice live sound, with incredible detail and great bass, they are great sounding speakers. Some people will complain about them being bright or fatiguing and if they aren't well paired to other equipment or set up properly they definitely can be, but when they are paired and adjusted well they will sound very natural, beautiful and amazing. Great speakers!
  5. I've had a few interested replies on these but still no buyer, it's an excellent preamp.
  6. ***********************************SOLD*************************************** For sale XSP-1 Gen 2 excellent condition, remote and power cable, will ship double boxed in original Emotiva boxes and packaging. The XSP-1 Gen 2 is an excellent great sounding 2 channel all analog preamp with HT bypass. The HT bypass makes it an excellent 2 channel musical upgrade to an existing home theater system or just use as a stand alone 2 channel system. $650.00 plus actual shipping cost or local pickup in Orange county California.
  7. Thanks guys, also the XSP-1 has a feature I really like the "HT BYPASS" so you can easily add the all analog stereo preamp to a home theater system for a nicer stereo music system combined with you home theater system. It's a great way to improve the music quality and to either add a nice DAC or turn table. BTW I love the XSP-1 and it sounds amazing in my system, I am only selling this as I had an opportunity to buy an XSP-1 gen 2 and did.
  8. No Longer Available Very mint condition XSP-1 gen 1 for sale. This is about as close to new as they come. Comes with a never used remote, the remote was only used to program my URC remote but otherwise it has never been used, power cord, manual and it will ship in the original double boxed packaging. Beautiful condition it has always worked and performed flawlessly. Has been very well kept and cared for in a child free, pet free, non smoking home. This unit is very much like new. $600.00 shipped (continental USA) See below links for more & larger images Large image link 1 Large image link 2 Large image link 3 Large image link 4 Large image link 5 Large image link 6 Double boxed, ready to tape up and ship
  9. Definitely not an RF-5.
  10. You are looking at the wrong ad, the link changed and now shows RF-3 cabinet without speakers, the original is a complete speaker and is definitely an RF-7 and not an RF-3 easy to tell from the pic by looking at the horn. Here is the new link https://www.ebay.com/itm/Pair-of-Klipsch-RF-3-Main-Stereo-Speakers/323697923485?epid=69608569&hash=item4b5de6559d:g:RfwAAOSwfeZcX2y-:rk:1:pf:0
  11. For music my MHDT NOS tube DAC was one of my favorite things I've ever added to my system, such an awesome musical sound. I now own two, an MHDT Havana and an MHDT balanced Stockholm both sound so sweet, detailed and musical. I've done a little tube rolling to refine their sound. Here they are This is the balanced MHDT Stockholm Here is the MHDT Havana
  12. Let me add this is not far from where I live and this is an area that prices are always higher than most. We never get the deals you see elsewhere and Klipsch speakers are always selling at their highest prices plus around here, bargains are pretty much non existent. The last RSW-15 I saw listed in Craig's List near me was for $1,200 and did not have a grill.
