Re: Emotiva Gives Its XMC-1 A Much Needed Hardware Update

Yeah, I'm not surprised that there's no technical reason why it can't be done. If they "can't" do it, I suspect is will be because their upgrade-to-Atmos/DTS:X cost is not enough to cover what I assume will be additional licensing fees paid to Dirac. I'm assuming here that the licensing structure for Dirac has some basis in the number of channels you're EQing for, although I don't know that this is the case. We shall see I suppose. Dan clearly hedged his bets in that response, though

And the reason I even bring it up is that Arcam and Audio Control have receivers with Dirac Live, but they only EQ the 7 bed-channel speakers (and the sub). In response to questions about why they don't EQ the overheads, they've talked about enabling it with a firmware upgrade, implying that it is possible with current hardware. If it is possible, why didn't they do it at the outset? I suspect it's a cost issue related to Dirac's licensing fees.

Just doing some speculating!
