View Full Version : About those separates...
To anyone who cares,
I read a post this morning that talked about the Emotiva Ultra Theater separates. Has any one used/heard this system or any Emotiva equipment? I've got a Pioneer Elite VSX-72TXV now. I'm not one for a ****-load of features but I'm a sucker for excellent sound quality. I like to sit with my eyes closed trying to hear mistakes that the guy in the studio made with some music I listen to :) If anyone has used or hear any Emotiva stuff please let me know. I'm considering getting the Ultra Theater system.
I think i was the one that suggested them below. I know Jim Holtz has the amp which replaced is upgraded Hafler 280XL and likes it. I personally have not heard the system.
I believe that once amps reach a certain level of build quality they all sound the same. The Emotiva is beyond that level as far as i know. Meaning if your Pioneer is a good design (probably is) you will not hear a direct differance between the seperates and your reciever. However, being seperates the amp has a bigger power supply than any AVR meaning the amp would have better headroom, and more power into lower impedances. Basically, its beefier, so at extreme levels where your pioneer would give up and clip the Emotiva would keep going.
Anyway, if you have the means to upgrade, do it. If your Pioneer has all the features you need and it has a full set of preouts consider just getting some power amps.

Hmm...If I were to get this system I probably wouldn't get rid of the Pioneer, I would use it for something else. I'm emailing a rep at Emotiva's site right now with random Q's. Any more input from anyone would be great.

I've never heard them myself but from what others have said for the money you would be hard pressed to find a better amp.
