80 Watt-per-channel integrated amp with DSP

Our advanced DSP and innovative smartphone application provide all the tools necessary for anyone to achieve a true audiophile system at an affordable price.
The EA101EQ-G makes quite a statement and is guaranteed to change the rules of the game for integrated amplifiers, with sound quality and feature-rich control flexibility that make it the go-to solution for a no-compromise sound system. Once you experience what it can do—especially with the new Debut, Uni-Fi, or Line 240.3 loudspeakers—your world of sound just might be altered forever.

This is a very full featured integrated that is designed with the UB5s in mind. I've heard it's a great system, and if you have 4ohm Elac speakers (which a lot of people do) you'd be well advised to check this out. Usually around $400-500 I think.

Subwoofer output and app control are not usually features on hifi amplfiiers in this price range.

PS some people think all amps are the same, but that mostly applies to power amplifiers. This is an integrated amplifier with the preamp and DAC built in, that is where you will notice quite pronounced differences between cheap and more expensive amps. This also has ROOM CORRECTION which is perhaps the most important feature any amp can have. I can't speak to their software; but I'll never have another amp without Audyssey or Dirac or something similar to balance the bass out. Especially critical if you're going to use a subwoofer.

Hmm not the best reviews in the world for this product, but at that price point it might change things a bit.

Fake power specs. Here are the actual measurements. Very weak amp. Good for a desktop audio. Don't buy it for your entertainment system.

The proprietary EQ is nowhere comparable to Dirac, ARC, Audyssey, etc.

But seems to have a decent sound otherwise.

reviews at Amazon seemed to suggest poor display on the unit and quality control issues with the unit itself and the remote control. I was intially interested in getting it at the significantly discounted price but backed out after seeing the reviews and was unsure about return/exchange policies with buying directly from Elac.

Any chance the app will become obsolete or unavailable at some point in the future, making the EQ process impossible? If so that seems like a major drawback.

If this has poor power specs, what is the best stereo amp around this price point?
