Emotiva PA-1 class D Amps

Recommended Posts

Anyone try them? Price make them tempting!  I’m not a person who spends tens of thousands on equipment so be easy on me.

XLR or 1/4" inputs only.  Odd that they wouldn't put RCA inputs on it as well.

You'll need $600 worth to run stereo... 

I've never heard them, and output implementation can be device dependent,  but ice based units are nice.

Maybe, but........

This'll make 'er work unbalanced. For $0.49 you'd think Emo would throw one in da box

There are several owners in the Emotiva forum that really like them. I personally thought they would flop since they are kind of pricy for only 140 wpc but it seems the ICE power modules they use are pretty high quality and the sound seems superior to most Class D...from what I've heard

I use them on my Behringer and QSC amps.

Those amps look promising. I have had several different emotive amps and pre amps and they have all been stellar performers. What will these mono's be driving?

If I got them they will be used with a emotiva pt-100 and erc-3  cd player. RP280F speakers. I don't really need them. May try them for a second system. Some things I hear about class d kind of scares me. Using a a-300 emotiva now.

A lot of the bad things you hear about class D amps are from poor power supply’s
They have improved on them a lot over the last few years
