Emotiva BASX A700 7-Channel Power Amp

Overview

Emotiva BASX A700 7-Channel Power Amp  is a seven channel power amplifier. Combine the BasX A-700 with a surround sound pre/pro as the heart of a great home theater system, or use it to upgrade the amplifier section of your AVR, or use the BasX A-700 to run the surround speakers in a big home theatre system.

Features

  • Great sounding Class A/B output stage – ensures smooth, detailed sound and incredibly natural imaging – without a trace of harshness or strain.
  • Heavy duty linear power supply – with an oversized torodial power transformer and plenty of current capacity to drive even difficult speakers.
  • Top quality parts and construction – promise years of reliable service.
  • Double sided FR4 circuit boards with plated-through holes – enable us to use short, optimized signal paths and minimize the need for point-to-point wiring.
  • Totally stable – designed for use in the real world, with real speakers.
  • Heavy steel 2RU chassis with milled aluminum faceplate – provide strength and rugged good looks.
  • Heavy duty insulated five-way speaker binding posts – allow you to use a wide range of speaker cables with bare wires, lugs, or banana plugs.
  • Remote trigger input and output – allow the BasX A-700 to be turned on by trigger-enabled equipment, and to activate other trigger-enabled equipment.
  • Audiophile-grade fault protection – entirely transparent under normal conditions, yet protects the amp and your other equipment from all common fault conditions.
  • Universal AC line voltage operation – the BasX A-700 is designed to operate on either 115 VAC or 230 VAC at 50/60 Hz, and automatically detect and configure themselves to operate with your local line voltage.
  • Standard IEC power inlet – fits all standard and audiophile IEC power cables.
  • Three-year warranty – ensures that you’ll be able to enjoy your BasX power amp for years to come.
