Re: Emotiva Readies It's New Product Line-Up for CES 2016

Sounds like we all agree, setting up the speakers properly & enjoy what comes next! I am looking forward to getting my ceiling speakers installed. I'm sure they will add to the experience no matter the format.

Emotiva makes great gear & their prices are in line with what I would expect to pay. I would be proud to own their pre-amp/amps combos, I'm just really wanting the improved surround experience that has become common place in the market now. I do like the fact that they have embellished Dirac Live, a real plus!

I labored briefly over not having Atmos or DTS:X with my recent purchase of an XMC-1 Gen 2, my skeptical 2 channel biased ears having heard convincing Atmos demonstrations.

But, in the end, my system is well over 90% music use, and ditching an AVR for a preamp of this caliber, with unheard of capabilities at a price that is just silly low in light of it's ne plus ultra performance is a no brainer, for this 2 channel guy. I am positive my 5.1 (eventually 7.2) listening and viewing experience will be greatly enhanced, as well.

If or when I have a dedicated home theater, I'll definitely need the immersion of Atmos and DTS:X, so I understand that side of it, too.

Yeah my XMC-1 will provide me at least 5 years of enjoyment. Maybe then I'll upgrade but till then eh.

Maybe just maybe someone will come out with a standalone decoder?... either that or OPPO will release a model and we'll just run analong out out of the OPPO into the XMC and then let Dirac do it thing and be done.

I think thats the most plausible thing to happen for me and possibly yuou.

Dennis I couldn't agree with you more my friend, I've been a 2 channel guy since the early 70's and find it just as appealing now as then. I have both digital and analog front ends, I tend to gravitate to the TT more often than not though, I guess I'm showing my age...

I still really enjoy my HT setup as well, nothing like watching a well recorded 5.1 BD live music concert of my favorite bands. I also have many BD movies with extreme LFE to compliment my subs and speakers, the video is just eye candy....

I haven't experienced Atmos or DTS:X yet so I can't comment on either of those formats, I'm sure it will take off. I spend a lot of my 2 channel listening with the misses as she does not care for my HT setup at the stupid levels I listen to, I think (know) it has a lot to do with my aging ears and hearing loss.
Take care buddy and let me know when you take the plunge into Atmos and DTS:X.

Cheers Jeffrey

unless your wanting all fancy all hidden wiring and stuff. I'd just run pvc along the wall and put the speaker in it. Like my uncle did

Plus, the PVC adds diffusion!
