Avantgarde Acoustic - XA POWER

XA POWER

Sound needs to be experienced. But until then, the sound of the XA POWER amplifier can easily be anticipated. You just need to have a look at the amplifier. There is this power. Tangible in the massive materials the heavy casting the strong handles the uncompromising outline. And nothing is for show. Everything has its function. No redundant controls no gadgets no ballast. But rather the visual conclusion of the technological clean-up. Naturalness and strength. The XA series sounds as it looks and thus it exactly follows up on the Avantgarde Acoustic promise: Purity meets Performance.
