That is disappointing news.

I don't want to pile on, but lack of "compatibility" seems like a pretty benign way to phrase what's happening here. I'm really surprised that the Emotiva design seems to be having such trouble with low impedance loads. Heaven help anyone trying to drive Maggies, eh?

When I was researching the Rotel amps never once did I read that they were current limiting.

Makes you wonder where all the "info" is coming from, BTW I forgot to add that Lonnie states that it is the "high power amps that are not current limited" in the Emotiva line that do not pair well with the M80s, presumably this does not include some of the lower wattage amps in the Emotiva lineup.

I wish I was notified of this when I was having problems with my RPA-1.

Sounds like Emotiva amps are the PC of computer systems, oh yes, loaded with Vista also

I'd never buy one, I will say they sure do look good though.

You're right Wid, they do look nice but looks ain't everything.

Any competently designed amplifier has to be "current limited". In the most extreme case, where a short has occurred due to a loose wire or whatever and the extremely low resulting impedance creates a sudden huge current surge, the amplifier has to shut down almost instantly to avoid damage. Protection against less severe requirements is also provided in varying degrees.
