    I noticed in your signature that you have the denon 4810:D

    Do you pair up the 4810 with the emo's?

    Does the emotiva do a better job than the denons internal amplification?

    I don't use the Denon internal amp at all. The main reason was the Denon ran too hot even without utilizing its internal amp, and, of course, running seven 4-ohm speakers with it would not be a good thing, to me :D
    Therefore I drive my HT with the XPA5 and my 2-channel Zone2 with the XPA2.

    I don't think this is the place to have the Emotiva debate. We've been over it, everyone knows Emotiva's past... this is just a sale notification thread.

    Hell, there was an XPA-2 at PolkFest....
    Ludicrous gibs!

    Would the fact that this amp has blue lights and the LOW price make this a K-mart Bluelight Special?

    I heard an Emo on the Carver Amazings at Polkfest. I was very unimpressed compared to the Carver and I'm not a Carver fan. To be totally fair the listening session was very informal and haphazard. But both amps were playing under the same conditions.

    FWIW

Why are we looking to reduce a subjective experience to objective criteria anyway? The subtleties of music and audio reproduction are for those who appreciate it. Differentiation by numbers is for those who do not".--Nelson Pass

    I listened to Phil's AAD's with both the CArver ? and the Emotiva XPA2. If I had my choice of amps, I'd have chosen the Carver. The Carver sounded much smoother and the treble was much more tamed than the Emo piece. I have heard the XPA5 and for a HT piece, I thought it was fine. Music was a bit harsh on a complete Paradigm Studio system. Every piece has it's place.
