Sound Quality First

  • Designed first and foremost to sound superb in all types of audio systems with all types of music.

  • Low noise, low distortion, wideband amplifier design with traditional Class A/B output stage ensures smooth, detailed sound, without a trace of strain or harshness.

  • Totally stable with real world speakers in real systems; not just on a test bench.

Modern Efficient Circuit Design

  • Optimized Soft-Switch Class H™ power supply topology delivers improved efficiency without compromising audio performance.

  • Switched Mode Power Supply (SMPS) offers all of the performance of a traditional linear power supply, with improved efficiency and reliability, and reduced overall weight.

Quality Construction

  • Top quality parts and construction throughout for years of reliable trouble-free  service.

  • Heavy steel 4RU chassis with milled aluminum faceplate offers strength and rugged good looks.

  • Solid machined gold-plated RCA input connectors provide a reliable connection with a wide variety of audio interconnects.

  • Fully modular construction allows you to purchase as many channels as you need today, and then add more channels later when and if you need them.

  • Designed, assembled, and tested in the U.S.A. at our plant here in Franklin, Tennessee

Flexible Signal Connections and Power Options

  • Gold plated five-way speaker binding posts with clear shields allow you to use a wide range of speaker cables with bare wires, lugs, or banana plugs.

  • Choice of balanced or unbalanced input for each channel, independently controlled by reliable metal toggle switches.

  • Remote trigger input and output allow the XPA-3 Gen3 to control and be controlled by other trigger-enabled equipment.

  • World compliant AC line voltage operation enables the XPA-3 Gen3 to operate on any line voltage between 100 VAC and 250 VAC 50/60Hz.

  • Standard IEC power inlet fits all standard IEC power cables and most custom audiophile power cables.

Protection

  • Audiophile-grade fault protection is entirely transparent under normal listening conditions, yet protects the amp and your other equipment from virtually all common faults.

  • The XPA-3 Gen3 is protected from AC line faults by a rugged resettable rear panel push-button circuit breaker.

  • Full five-year warranty ensures that you’ll be able to enjoy your XPA-3 Gen3 amplifier for years to come.

Circuit Topology

The XPA-3 Gen3 is a fully modular audio power amplifier with a high-efficiency switch mode power supply (SMPS), independent, fully discrete, dual differential, high current, short signal path Class A/B amplifier modules, Optimized Class H™ power supply topology, and microprocessor-controlled fault protection.

The XPA-3 is powered by a high efficiency, audiophile grade, Switch Mode Power Supply (SMPS).

Audio Specifications

The XPA-3 Gen3 features three of our High-Powered Single Channel Modules.

Audio Specifications (Three High-Powered Single Channel Modules):

Power Output: 300 watts RMS/channel; 20 Hz – 20 kHz; THD<0.1%; 8 Ohms; one channel driven. 550 watts RMS/channel; 20 Hz – 20 kHz; THD<0.2%; 4 Ohms; one channel driven. 300 watts RMS/channel; THD<0.1%; 8 Ohms; two channels driven. 490 watts RMS/channel; THD<0.1%; 4 Ohms; two channels driven. 275 watts RMS/channel; THD<0.1%; 8 Ohms; ALL THREE channels driven.

Power Bandwidth (at rated power; 4 Ohm - 8 Ohm load): 20 Hz to 20 kHz (+ / – 0.1 dB).

Broad Band Frequency Response: 5 Hz to 80 kHz +0/-2 dB.

THD + noise: < 0.005%; at 100 watts RMS; 1 kHz; 8 Ohms.

Signal to Noise Ratio (8 Ohm load): > 117 dB; ref FTC rated power; unbalanced input (A-weighted). > 91 dB; ref 1 watt; unbalanced input (A-weighted).

Minimum Recommended Load Impedance (per channel): 4 Ohms (which equals one 4 Ohm load or two paralleled 8 Ohm loads).

Damping Factor (8 Ohm load): > 500.

Input Sensitivity (for rated power; 8 Ohm load): 1.5 V.

Gain: 29 dB.

  • Maximum Power Consumption: 1,400 watts. Note: The values shown refer to the amount of power the amplifier would consume while playing test tones continuously, on all channels, at full power, into a load bank. Therefore they are not at all characteristic of what you would expect when playing music or the sound track from a movie. Normal audio signals are dynamic, so the amount of power they require from second to second varies widely, and the average is far lower than this. With normal content, even playing very loudly, one of our amplifiers will consume far less power than indicated in the chart, so these values should not be considered to be a circuit requirement for normal operation.

Input Impedance: 33 kOhms (balanced). 23.5 kOhms (unbalanced).

Input And Output Connections

Input Connections (High-Powered Single Channel Modules): Unbalanced (RCA); balanced (XLR); one each per channel, independently selectable.

Input Connections (Stereo Modules): 2 Unbalanced (RCA); 2 balanced (XLR); two per channel, independently selectable.

Speaker Output Connections: Audiophile grade, gold plated, 5-way binding posts.

Trigger: Trigger Input: 5 – 12 V (AC or DC); <10 mA input current required. Trigger Output: 12 VDC; can drive any load up to 120 mA.

Power Requirements

Between 100 VAC and 250 VAC @ 50 / 60 Hz (automatically detected).

Front Panel Controls and Indicators

Standby: push button (halo ring changes color to indicate Standby or On).

Status LEDs: one per channel; blue. Status LEDs change to red to indicate a fault condition.

Rear Panel Controls

AC Power switch: rocker switch (switches AC main power).

Status LEDs switch: disables front panel Status LEDs and dims Standby button halo.

Input selector switches (one per channel): metal toggle switches; select between balanced and unbalanced inputs.

Circuit Breaker: press button to reset circuit breaker.

Protection

The XPA Gen3 is protected against excessive operating temperature, shorted speaker connections, ground faults, and other common fault conditions.

Mechanical
