Can't find it on the web...... Blue light comes on, but no sound from XPA-3. I need to know what fuse(s) to order (links) so I can replace them

Default Adding XPA-1

After I move next year I plan to add a dedicated amp for the center channel, I have my mind set on an XPA-1.

My question is what do they cost during Emofest? If the savings would be substantial I would wait to purchase.

I've never been to Emofest, looking forward to it

Thought I'd give this thread a bump after realizing it has been more than 10 years since I ventured into Emotiva, which brought me back to separates after a few stints with 75 lb flagship AVRs (which compared to today's AVR standards were phenomenal quality from Yamaha and Denon IMO). I'm still enjoying my RPA-2 + XPA-5 combo in my main setup, and for the man cave a "little" A700 I picked up a couple of years ago, which the wife gets to enjoy 2 of the channels for a zone 2 stereo setup in her art studio.

It has been a while since those "upgrade itch" days that this thread only helped promote when it was regularly active. Similarly, I decided to visit the Emo website and was shocked to see some of the pricing, particularly with the XPA-5 gen 3. I started wondering how much the gap on the price/performance ratio was versus other more widely accepted audiophile gear. Then I went to Parasound's website and looked at the Halo A51 and saw the pricing has also increased significantly. This hobby has become too rich for my blood, although I admit a Halo A21 + A51 combo is enticing enough that I might be willing to bite.

But in the end, all I can say is, long live my RPA-2!
