EMOTIVA STEALTH PA-1 CLASS D MONOBLOCKS SPOTTED AT CEDIA 2018

American audio brand Emotiva slipped out their new Class D monoblock power amplifier, the Stealth PA-1, at CEDIA 2018.

Emotiva’s Stealth PA-1 monoblock amplifier delivers 140wpc (8 Ohms) / 300wpc (4 Ohms) of Class D power to your speakers for a bargain £329 each.

Measuring a compact 5cm x 21.5cm x 23cm and tipping the scales 1.4kg, it features an ICEpower 300ASC module in a package that would be equally at home in a desktop system as well as your main Hi-Fi.

As the Stealth PA-1 requires minimal ventilation, you can fit it into a home theatre or studio rack set-up - each monoblock only takes up a single 1U space.

The combination input on the Stealth PA-1 accepts both XLR and 1/4-inch balanced input connections that apply 28db of voltage gain to the incoming signal before outputting via the ‘5-way’ gold-plated loudspeaker binding posts. The PA-1 also plays nice with any unbalanced input source with the addition of a low-cost passive adapter.

In addition to the 8- and 4-ohm loads, the Stealth PA-1 can deliver even more power into loads as low as 2.7 Ohms; a skill that makes these monoblocks flexible enough to work with any loudspeakers or passive subs.

The Stealth PA-1 monoblocks add up to just under £660 for the pair including VAT.
