do anybody know where can i find emotiva amplifiers in india i want there xpa-3 model
Emotiva is an internet based retailer and they do not have an outlet anywhere that I'm aware of. They apparently offer a very good VFM throughout their product line. However you'd have to consider this option carefully as their products are pretty heavy and the shipping would be quite exorbitant, not to mention the added customs duty...
Emotiva is an excellent amp manufacturers though they have growing pains as many others have gone through in the past. Please search on this forum for an earlier discussion. I have used the XPA 5 before and thought it was really good for HT but not so much for music - did not have the finesse of say a Parasound or Adcom but excellent value product.
2 caveats :
shipping cost to India is super expensive.
There are some break downs and shipping back and getting back is going to cost you as much as getting another brand altogether.
If you purchased one today the XPA-2 is a better build (quality and performance) since its built differently than the 3 or 5. The monoblocks are too new to rate.
If you tell them its an international order they will test it thoroughly before shipping so that you dont send it back etc.
Emotiva Audio UPA-2 Two Channel Power Amplifier
This might be of interest not to heavy, cheap, should be better than the two main channels of an av receiver.
so guys any other suggestion for power amplifiers i have to use it for my polk tsi 400 which has 200 watts power and gonna use the amplifiers with onkyo 706 receiver
Why are you looking at a 200 wpc amplifier? Is it because your speakers are rated at 200 Watts?
This is not how one should determine the power requirement of the amp. In addition, I looked up the specs of those TSI speakers you mention, they have 8 Ohm impedance and 91 db sensitivity. If the speaker impedance does not have any bad dips, those speakers should be very easy loads, and would be driven easily to deafening loudness by an amp with one tenth the power you are looking for.
The power ratings given for speakers are sort of a safety rating (that is, you should not put more power than the rated one, otherwise the speakers will get damaged). That is no way a necessary requirement you have to fulfill. This issue has been discussed in this forum.
On the other hand, if for some other reason you need the 200 wpc amp, then that's okay. For most household purposes, with solid state amps, 100wpc is more than enough with a brand that is known to rate their equipments truthfully and conservatively. This also has recently been discussed in detail.
demo is impossible though because its not where i live its in other cityI think it is a JBL group company. Take a demo and post your comments back. Maybe it can help everyone out here to get a good high power amp for cheap.
so onkyo 705 with 100 watts/ch is enough for me my polk tsi 400 floorstanders is 200 watts,polk cs20 centre is 150 watts,4 polk surrounds tsi 200 is 150 watts max
