Both the 7140 and the 5000 seem like real bargains. Prices for this stuff have gone up pretty rapidly. I got most of my Emotiva gear long enough ago that those price hikes hadn't hit yet. I think my XPA-5 was $640. Since most of my speakers are 4 ohm, that's five channels of 300 WPC, all channels driven. Then 500 wpc with an XPA-2 in the front, and that was even less, I think. Admittedly, 300 wpc for surround speakers is gross overkill, but I have it, so there it is.
How ya been, @John Dirk ?
I'm doing great and hope you are as well. Agree on the prices. According to Outlaw it is due to an industry-wide component shortage that hit sometime in 2017, although they didn't identify a specific cause. I love the Outlaw concept and the performance of my 7140. I would like to replace my Harman Kardon two-channel [x 100] with something a little more capable but, unfortunately, Outlaw doesn't currently offer a two-channel amp.
