i have owned their preamp, upa-2 amp, and 2 of their upa-1 monoblocks. when i first started to get into this game, only 1 1/2 years ago, i started out with Emotiva because i didnt know any better and i seen everybody at blu-ray.com brag about them. i have since gained a little bit of knowledge and started to demo everyting i could. with that, Emotiva builds a decent product and their customer service is very good. i think their equipment is more suited towards home theatre. pretty much every brand of amp i have heard sounds better then them, but also cost more. i didnt care for their preamp and my cambridge 840v2 integrated smokes their pre and upa-1 monoblock combo. if you are after sound quality i would look somewhere else, but if budget is tight or if its for theatre use then i would go with them.
