Studiomaster XPA Series

XPA Series Amplifiers

Overheating is one of the most common reasons for amplifier failure in a tropical country like India. It has a detrimental effect on the electronic components and parts of amplifiers.

To counter this issue, Studiomaster Professional has developed an innovative solution for its newly-launched XPA series amplifiers. Thermal Management System (TMS) is the brand’s proprietary temperature-controlled gain variation technology. In the XPA series amplifiers, the temperature is never allowed to exceed the permissible limit. The TMS technology intuitively “jumps in” to adjust amplifier parameters and keep the temperature limit-bound. Thanks to this, audio quality is never compromised and the amplifiers keep running smooth and cool.

Currently, the lineup features two models, the XPA 40 and XPA 60. The XPA 40 delivers 2 x 1400W (True RMS) @ 4Ω and the XPA 60 delivers 2 x 2000W (True RMS) @ 4Ω. At the heart of each amplifier is a high-current toroidal transformer with high-endurance cores that deliver greater transient response, low-noise, and stability even at 2 Ohms load. Other features include built-in crossover, bass boost (EQ processing), balanced XLR and ¼” stereo jack inputs, Speakon and binding post outputs, limiter switch for speaker protection and much more.
