2021 Emotiva BasX 2nd Generation Power Amplifiers

Emotiva have announced a complete refresh of its best-selling BasX amplifiers with new 5 models for both 2-channel and home theater systems. The new 2nd generation Emotiva BasX amplifiers range from $449 to $699, offering two-channel stereo to seven-channels for home theater systems.

Emotiva’s 2021 BasX amps feature a beefed up linear power supply claiming even more power and better control with demanding loads. They use the same audiophile quality Class A/B output section, with a newly optimized input stage said to improve fine detail and transparency. Input sensing is also new, enabling auto turn-on. Visually, the front panels have been updated with a sleek more modern look.

The BasX A2, which replaces the A300, features a heavy-duty linear power supply, high-quality Class A/B amplification, transparent fault protection, and a trigger input and output.

It’s designed to serve as the foundation of a great-sounding stereo system, to power the front main speakers on a surround sound system, or to upgrade the front left and right channels of your favorite surround sound receiver.

The BasX A2 also offers a convenient feature that allows the amp to switch on when an audio signal is detected at its input – which is especially useful if your preamp or receiver doesn’t offer a trigger output.
