Emotiva UPA-700

Recommended Posts

Anyone familiar with the Emotiva UPA-700? Found a deal in my area ($400) for the 7ch by 80Watts(8ohms) amp. Worth it? I already have my denon x6400. Wondering if it’s worth it to pick this up and power my front sound stage with the UPA-700?

Thanks Dave....hey dubs. The UPA-700 may not be a worthwhile move if you have anything close to that 80 WPC. I would go out on a limb and say you may not benefit from the UPA-700. The other Denon receivers in your class seem to put out about that amount into five channels. Some more, some less. If you are looking to power just your front three, you would be much better off grabbing an XPA-3. 200 WPC will be noticeable.

I definitely agree.

 

 

 

Here is a very fine 7 channel amp for a nice price.

This Acurus 3-channel amp below is one I can definitely put my seal of approval on.

Another very fine amp for a great price.

Same Anthem 5-channel but right down the road from you.
