The UPA-500 delivers stunning sound quality, advanced engineering, and an elegant aesthetic at an unusually reasonable price point. It is the most amazing price-to-performance ratio available in today’s market.
The UPA-500 has all of the qualities you’d expect in a high performance, multi-channel amplifier and much more: oversized power supply with plenty of storage reserves, wide flat frequency response, remarkably low noise and distortion, bulletproof protection, and heavy duty construction. 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 even the most difficult of loudspeakers.

  • Advanced engineering with our proven class A/B design topology.
  • Top quality parts and construction.
  • Real power easily drives complex loads.
  • Heavy duty power supply with oversized toroidal transformer.
  • Gold plated five way binding post output terminals.
  • Classic Emotiva styling with rugged solid steel chassis.
  • 15mm solid milled aluminum faceplate.
  • Channel status LED’s.
  • Stealth mode (status LEDs and Standby button halo lighting can be switched off).
  • Remote trigger input and output.
  • 115 VAC or 230 VAC with automatic detection and switching.
  • Full protection from all common input and output fault conditions.
