Ideal for a stereo system, multi-room audio or as part of a home cinema system, the Emotiva BasX A2 is a flexible 2-channel power amplifier.

Fantastic value 2-channel power amp for quality sound
The Emotiva BasX A2 is a 2-channel amp of exceptional value, ability and flexibility. Use it with a pre-amp and enjoy superb value, powerful stereo sound. It also makes an ideal power amp for a multi-room system, where there are passive speakers in each room – just add an amp per room. Finally, the BasX A2 works seamlessly with other BasX amps, making it the ideal ‘add-on’ in a home cinema system. If, for example, you already have an A5 or A7 but want to add another two channels of sound (perhaps for Dolby Atmos), then simply add the A2 for consistent sound all around the room.

Plenty of power
Using a tried and tested Class A/B amplifier, the Emotiva BasX A2 delivers smooth and consistent sound. With an impressive 160 watts per channel at 8 ohms or 250 watts per channel into a 4 ohm speaker, this power amp has plenty of grunt to deal with any speaker.

Purity to match the power
Unlike some, digital only, power amps, the BasX A2 utilises an analogue Class A/B amplifier stage. This preserves the music’s emotion and ‘flow’ in a way that many digital amps struggle to convey. Designed with high current capacity and short signal paths, it promotes a highly dynamic, low distortion sound.

Quality connections
At the back of the BasX A2 you’ll find high quality connections for both inputs and speaker outputs. Heavy duty, insulated and gold-plated speaker sockets accept thicker cables and 4mm banana plugs. Inputs are handled by universally accepted RCA phonos which are, again, gold-plated for low resistance.

Sturdy build quality
The sturdy, steel case features a milled aluminium facia, giving it the visual muscle to match the room-filling sound.

Enjoy the flexibility of a quality power amp, for less, with the Emotiva BasX A2.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional product Exceptionally good for the price. Works with my UR Unico 90 in bi-amp configuration. Emotiva takes care of the bass drivers of my 3 way diy speakers. Unico drivers mid and tweeter drivers. My speakers sounded amazing but now there’s that ease of driving them. They are sensitive speakers 91db 8ohm so power amp wasn’t needed, but with it I get an extremely stretched bottom end and the mids and highs benefit too . I don’t see the point of going any further if you want a good amp for bi-amping, I guess it’s the same when it comes to powering the front channels of your cinema. The build quality is almost perfect. Front panel thick, good feet too , just the chassis could be a bit thicker to prevent vibration but you can always put the metal door stopper on the top . Only 1 thing doesn’t work great- automatic power on and off. It doesn’t always catches the signal and if automatically switched off it doesn’t always come back to „on”, so I simply switch it on and off with the button- not a big deal but they should work on it. 5 stars though from me. Buy with confidence

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Brought my KEF speakers to life My speakers were great, but I had a feeling that my Marantz integrated amp wasn't making them realise their full potential, despite the specs being adequate... Adding a dedicated stereo power amp like this Emotiva, and suddenly I've fallen in love with my KEFs. Soundstage is bigger, bass is more enveloping, voices are more natural, top end at high volume is no longer too sharp. For a class A/B amp, it runs cool, which is a nice surprise. It looks good and build quality feels excellent with one exception - the RCA jacks aren't quite as solid as expected, as there is a tiny bit of wiggle. Doesn't appear to be a problem but not as positive a feel as some of my other components. Along with the RCA connection, the reason for the drop of a star is the fact that my system won't implement the AUTO-ON feature. Whether it's my Marantz pre-out signal, the Chord C-line RCAs, or the sensitivity of the KEFs, the AUTO-ON does work, but not until 40% volume, which is reasonably loud. If you reduce the volume below 40% for casual listening, then the amp turns off after a few minutes, so I've had to resort to leaving the amp always on, but since it doesn't get hot, I'm not too disheartened. Whilst this feature was a good selling point for me, the overall improvements to my system cancel out the disappointment. Outstanding service from Richer Sounds as usual, two day delivery to the Highlands.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful, great detailed sound Great service from the solihull branch. Karl was very knowledgeable and helpful. The amp is great and it powers my front Monitor Audio Silver 300s very well. Great purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great build quality and performance I have had this Emotiva BasX A2 for a couple of weeks and love it. It is used to power my front Atmos speakers and does a great job hardly generating any heat. I have two other excellent Emotiva amps (XPA-3 & XPA-7) both relatively recently bought from Richer Sounds.
