Gradient XO-AMP is an active crossover and power amplifier based on the new Hypex Ncore®-technology.

There are two versions available: one for the Gradient Revolution Active and other for the Quad ESL & Gradient SW-system. The Gradient XO-AMP includes two power amplifiers per channel. Just add preamplifier and music source for the music playback.


From the transformer to the input terminals, each section of the Artera has been engineered from the ground up to ensure power, musicality and stability. The Artera Stereo produces 140 Watts RMS per channel – ample power for driving first-class loudspeakers, unfaltering even under high dynamic and transient conditions thanks to the patented Current Dumping technology. Special attention has also been paid to the newly developed balanced XLR inputs. The robust connections are yet another string to the Artera Stereo’s bow, with an incomparable signal to noise ratio.
