Franklin, Tenn. — Emotiva Audio has introduced the second generation of its XPA-2 stereo power amplifier, a revamped two-channel unit that has new features, functionality and look.

With the new XPA-2 Gen 2, Emotiva has refined the XPA-2’s circuit topology. It sports several mechanical improvements like solid machined gold-plated RCA jacks, metal toggle switches for input selection, and “cleaner, bolder aesthetics,” with a new high-strength chassis for added durability, the company said.

“Our first-generation XPA-2 was called ‘a beast, a monster, an abominable snowman on steroids,’ ” said Dan Laufman, president of Emotiva. “With the XPA-2 Gen 2, we took that beast and sent her to finishing school. The result is not only more refined performance, but a more refined appearance, as well. And she’s flexible enough to stick with you even as your audio system evolves.”

The new XPA-2 is priced at $899
