Emotiva A150 Stereo Power Amplifier
The Emotiva A150 offers lots of performance and simple to set up. The circuitry in the A150 features a heavy duty linear power supply, great sounding high-current short signal path Class A/B amplifier modules, a trigger input and output plus unbalanced audio inputs. It also includes audiophile quality fault protection that’s completely transparent in normal operation, yet protects the A-150 and your other equipment from common fault conditions.
The BasX A-150 is a two channel power amplifier. The BasX A-150 combines classical audiophile amplifier architecture – based on a heavy-duty linear power supply, and a carefully designed high current, short signal path, Class A/B output stage, with advanced, microprocessor-controlled monitoring and protection circuitry, to deliver superb sound quality at a truly reasonable price.
