I really wanted to like the new emotiva XPA amps given the listed specs and price. After reading the reviews of some members here I wouldn't even consider buying them for half the listed price. Emotiva amps are clearly not the answer

alot of the problems were user faults such as bad cables.... also we always hear the "problems" 1 or 2....we never hear the hundreds of others that worked fine.


Bad cables?? Must elaborate so I understand. Also, I know there are some happy users in this forum with Emotiva products (I am after two instances of mine shutting down, and another instance of a blown fuse; but I'd never been buy another) but the complaints easily trump the accolades IMO.

Aaron, you really should "know spl levels" if for no other reason than to help prevent hearing loss. If you shut the 1015 down and it wasn't related to a loose wire causing a short, it may be an indication the you were simply using too high a sound level; getting an SPL meter will let you judge this better than simply what your ears indicate. The high powered receivers with clean output of 100 watts or more which are readily available today can result in sound levels which are clean and sound pretty impressive, but which are nevertheless dangerous.
