Lifetime Tech Support

Designing and building an amazing surround sound system begins with the right separates and paramount to the mix is the right multi-channel amplifier. This amplifier is a 5-channel Class H amp that supplies 180W per channel of clean power, and when paired with great speakers like ours, you'll hear music and movie soundtracks with exceptional detail, accuracy and warmth. The advanced circuitry, wide bandwidth, and low distortion capabilities of this amp allow listeners to hear spine-tingling sonic nuances, and this beefy amp can be matched with even power-hungry in-wall or freestanding loudspeakers. Designed with a high-output toroidal power supply and ample heat sinks to keep things cool, this amp has a clean, brushed metal finish and front panel status indicators that add a high-tech ambiance to any equipment rack.

Includes Balanced and Unbalanced Inputs
This high current home theater amplifier includes both balanced and unbalanced inputs for more flexible installation options and cable runs. XLR inputs (balanced) include a ground wire which make it a good choice for long (up to 2000 ft) cable runs, while unbalanced (RCA) provide a more reliable signal on shorter runs. 

Advanced Class H Hybrid Technology
Our amplifier is a Class H amplifier that combines the benefits of Class A/B in a more efficient package. Class H amplifiers are a variation of Class A/B amps but include high voltage and low voltage rails to modulate power consumption. When power is running high, the amp switches to the high voltage rails. When the amp is running low, it switches to the low voltage rails. The result is more efficiency, cooler temperatures, and a reduction in power consumption while maintaining the warmth and accuracy of a true A/B amp without the "digital" drawbacks (like interference) of Class D amps.

28 Questions asked on 5X Channel Hi Fidelity Home Theatre Amplifier, Class H 180W/channel Full Five Channel Driven XA5180

jason • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Q does this have differential outputs (to speakers?)
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM
A Hi Jason: There are no thruputs on this amplifier. The XLR Balanced connections are inputs only with built-in differential amps. You would bypass the amp and run the XLR cable directly from your Preamp. TL/5409
-K- • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Q Hello, Couple questions with explanation, short: Does this amplifier hiss with no source? Long version: I own a CROWN XLS 1002, I Had planned to use it in a HTR setup in the future, Currently though I'm using it as my front left+right in a 5.1 setup from my receivers ins/pre-outs. The problem is I hear a HISS at minimum volume and increased volume. The Hiss is apparent at any level with no source just speakers and power cable plugged in. It's been driving me crazy in a desk setup. I've read on forums that people just ignore it or don't hear it in a HTR setup because they're sitting further back. I'm not sure if it's from some SNR / Signal to noise ratio thing, I'm still trying to understand this SNR spec(maybe you can explain this too?).. Also I read that higher sensitivity speakers will output the Noise Floor sound / HISS more. My speakers I Think are on the lower end of sensitivity 88dB.. I thought it would work out, Apparently not. - Please let me know about all this. and the XA5180, if this one has hiss. I know one is a pro amp one is not, I Still need help.

A Hi K: You may want to check out this YouTube video regarding noise: Video In both cases the CROWN XLS 1002 and the OSD XA-5180 feature Balance and Unbalanced inputs. Not only does the video explain the causes of noise but discusses the advantage of Balanced vs Unbalanced. They also feature solutions for these problems. I am assuming you are using an AVR that does not have Balanced Line Outputs. I do not think your speakers are contributing to your issue. Good luck TL/5419
brandon • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Q Would you actually classify this as audiophile? Would you put it against Emotiva and Outlaw? I purchased one yesterday and it will be replacing emotiva but if it's not like what has been stated it's going back. It's just a little suspicious with the pricing and different wattage info in different places.
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM
A Hi Brandon: The special pricing is based solely on overstock issue. Check this out: The XA5180 is the real deal, you do not find five channel amps with Balanced Differential inputs under $600.00, but you know that already. Enjoy TL/5435
Larry Bohling • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Q I have your xa 5180 amp and was wondering if I can run the center channel that is 8 ohms and the two front channels also 8 ohms then using the remaining two channels to drive 4 ohm subs? Is that possible or will that hurt the amp?
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM
A HI Larry: Each channel will do a 4-ohm load. The only thing I would recommend is that you use channel 1 and channel 5 for the 4-ohm loads. A 4-ohm load would tend to generate more heat and would benefit the two 4-ohm channels having one side facing away from another Amplifier. In reality, you can have all five channels run in 4-ohm. TL/5475
Anthony Greco • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Q Hello, I have the Carver HTA5A. What power rating with 3 channels driven on the front. Also, I'm using 4 ohm speakers(SP-EFS73) rated at 140watts maximum. Are my speakers capable of handling this amp safely? Thx, Anthony
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM
A Hi Anthony: The CARVER 5 channel is typically 180 Watts at 4 ohms all channels driven. The Pioneer Elite Floor standing speakers would be an ideal match. You will have more power from just three channels driven. I would recommend using channels 1, 3 and 5. The two things you want to look at are one, will the Amplifier handle a 4-ohm load (yes, it will) and second another feature is the Speakers Sensitivity (86dB). The higher the number 90 plus tells us the speaker is very efficient and takes less power to drive to full out. The Pioneer Speakers are more power hungry and at 4 ohms there are getting more output from the 5 channel amplifier. Good choice TL/ 5479
