View Full Version : Emotiva UPA-200

I continue to collect budget amps for my tri-amp project (LE15A/375/075). I was gifted a significant Amazon gift certificate and started looking for amps sold on Amazon. I found the Emotiva UPA-200 for about $314. Interesting company who promises quality at a reasonable prices.

Seems to have a good power supply, fans (but many review comments about never hearing them), lots of rave reviews, decent looks, and published test results (https://emotiva.com/products/amplifiers/upa-200).

There are no level controls which seems a bit odd. The Ashly XR4001 that will be driving it does have output levels so that might not be an issue.

I'm also not sure if it has a power-on relay (or some such) that protects the drivers at power on.

Has anyone listened to one of these?

I owned a 5 channel surround sound amp. They make an exceptional product at extraordinary saving compared to others. I currently still own there cd player.

You'll be happy with them I bet. I've never read a negative review on there gear.

That being said, I did own there stereo preamp but was not happy with it.

Thanks Nick. I too have not seen a negative review on their amps
