Stereo Power Amplifier

Classic Emotiva.

The UPA-200 represents a true breakthrough in audiophile-quality amplification. At last, a truly affordable stereo power amplifier that can satisfy the most discerning aficionado, and at the same time, is affordable to anyone with a desire for real quality. Our advanced engineering and design techniques have resulted in an amazing new amplifier. Its rock solid performance and affordable price point makes it an instant classic.

The UPA-200 has all of the qualities you’d expect in a high performance, stereo power amplifier - and much more. An oversized toroidal power supply with plenty of storage reserves, wide flat frequency response, remarkably low noise and distortion, bulletproof protection, and heavy-duty construction are all classic Emotiva traits. Like all of our power amps, it’s rated to provide full power under all conditions with all channels driven. It is also perfectly capable of driving difficult loudspeakers with ease.

We recommend pairing the UPA-200 with one of our Ultra Series stereo preamplifiers or surround sound processors to create a fantastic sounding home audio system. You might also consider taking advantage of the UPA-200’s muscle and finesse to upgrade your current AV receiver for a dramatically enhanced listening experience. Use it to drive your main L&R speakers and hear what you’ve been missing.

The UPA-200’s understated styling ensures that is will blend flawlessly with any room décor, and it’s an exact match for your other Emotiva gear.
