[Sold] Emotiva UPA-5

Recommended Posts

Up for sale is my last piece of Emotiva gear.  I started phasing out my Emotiva stuff a few years ago in favor of Rotel/Parasound combinations.  This one is the last piece to go - it has been replaced with a 5125.  It's in great condition - I'm the second owner (that I know of).  Missing the ears, but that's easy enough to recover (it has the screws though).  No glaring scratches, dents, or dings.  It's in real pretty shape.  Includes original box - I'd have to dig it out of storage.  Thing is a beast - for those who don't know - so prepare for about $90+ on shipping unless you're in driving range.

 

Location: Eastern Iowa

Asking: $550 + PayPal (3%) + ship, for forum members (will waive PayPal & Ship for local pickup)

Condition: Gently Used (under 20 hours of runtime in current configuration)

Cosmetic: 8/10

Function: 10/10

Includes: Box, unit, power cable

I've replaced almost all of my emotiva amps with rotels as well.  Does this amp have the typical emotiva capacitor issue noise when it shuts off?

I actually have not noticed that issue with the UPA-5.  At least what pop is there is very quiet, and that's with it powering an RC-7 and four RS-3's.

My neighbor is looking for a decent less expensive 5 channel amp after seeing/hearing my XPA 5's. However, I already sold them before he made up his mind to buy one.

 

I sent him a text and I'll let you know if he's interested.

Sounds good!  Let me know.

 

The UPA line is still pretty solid with the toroidal transformers - it's why I never wanted to go with their Gen III stuff.  The Parasounds that have been replacing these have also had the toroidal units in them.  Easy selling point for me. :)

Still for sale.

Seriously.  Come on folks take the plunge on some serious grunt.  If you have never owned an outboard amp, then this is a great place to start.

Good deal. Some of that gear sells for close to what is was new.
