Emotiva has added a new three-channel amplifier to its XPA product lineup. The DR3M is a balanced, fully differential design that utilizes three of the company's 600-watt balanced mono-block modules, as well as a high-current version of Emotiva's Soft-Switch Class H power supply. The DR3M will be available in the third quarter; the price is still to be determined.
Emotiva Audio Corporation has announced a new high power three-channel amplifier utilizing three of the company's 600W balanced mono-block modules.
Originally referred to as the Three.MB, the new DR3M is a balanced, fully differential mono-block amplifier in a three-channel configuration. Similar to other XPA models, the DR3M employs a modular design to maximize both performance and manufacturing efficiencies. An Emotiva XPA Gen 3 chassis houses the three amplifier modules, each of which occupies two slots. The chassis can be configured for one-, two- and three-channel options (the DR1M, DR2M, and DR3M, respectively).
The new XPA series of DR (Differential Reference) amplifiers also features a special high current version of Emotiva's highly acclaimed Soft-Switch Class H power supply for an enhanced high power performance.
"The XPA series' modular layout gives us the freedom to create new and exciting variations on the original, highly flexible design," said Dan Laufman, President and Founder, Emotiva Audio Corp. "Each of the DR models represents not only the best performance at the price point, but they epitomize our intent to allow consumers to customize their gear without having to pay a premium. And, like our other XPA products, DR amplifiers are manufactured on-site at Emotiva headquarters in Tennessee."
The XPA DR3M boasts an ultra-clean broadband frequency response of 20 Hz - 80 kHz, +0/-6 dB, and a power bandwidth of 20 Hz - 20 kHz, +/- 0.2 dB. Signal-to-noise is measured at 95 dB and 125 dB, for one watt and full power, respectively.
