  • Emo or virtue

    I'm looking to add a low priced two channel amp to add to my system. I will be using a H/K 240 as a pre for now. Emo has the UPA-2 on sale for $269 with free shipping and the virtue one is about the same cost. Which amp would be the best to add?

      I kind of like the idea of the Virtue minus the H/K as a pre :blockhead:

          The only reason for the H/K would be for volume control. I do like to listen to multi channel music at times as well.

              Great amps, but a little more than I was looking to spend.

                  can't wait to hear your impressions. Are you going to run it standalone?

                    ps3->hdmi->Marantz 5003->Virtue one with 30w PSU->X-static

                    I will also be giving it a run with elt 525m's and some PSB's.

                    I also will be using it directly from my laptop through a creative x-fi to test with the ELT's to compare directly with the gizmo.

                      Be interested to hear how they sound on the x-static.

                      I would be using a H/K to run Deftech BP10's and a MFW.

                        I see Spearit Sound has the NAD C325BEE refurb on sale for $269 and free shipping and CI9060 for $469. Hmmm Emo or NAD?

                          I did a mini review of the Virtue Two. In my system I found it far superior to my Outlaw 7100 and the x-amp:

                            Just got my virtue and am breaking it in. Have about 5 hours of listening with it now and thus far is seems like a nice little amp. To be honest I think it sounded better on my x-ls's than with my xstatiks. Who knows we will give them some more break in and see where things go. SP3 comes tomorrow so we will see what will stay.

                              :cool: Let us know which one you end up keeping.
                              I should hook up the Virtue Two to my ref 1s and see how it sounds with them.
