I now need help in choosing the right amp for my needs. I’ve narrowed it down to either Emotiva XPA series or Outlaw. From a personal stand point I like the looks of the Outlaw much better but it is the SQ that really matters. This is where you all come in. Please feel free to give me your impressions or other recommendations.

Thanks in advance.

If you like the Outlaw then get the Outlaw. There should be no audible difference between the two.

There should be no sound quality differences between the amps, as long as they're kept below clipping. The Outlaw multi-channel, are built by ATI (in the US), and are rock solid.

the reasons an amp would not sound good is if it's overdriven or broken.
