I really hope this unit turns out as great as it sounds.

people need to give props to these guys for building these in the USA as well.
I agree with this 100%. It's great to see them moving their assembly to the U.S.

Re: Emotiva Says the XMC-1 Will Begin Shipping in March

I think with all the issues they have had in the past they want to ensure that it's done right this time. I don't think they can afford another blunder like it's predecessor.

Home theater:
Onkyo 805, Yamaha YDP2006EQ, Samson Servo 600 amp
3 EV Sentry 500 monitors across the front, 4 Mission 762i's Surrounds, SVS PB13U sub, Panasonic BDT220, Harmony 1100, Nintendo WiiU
Panasonic PT-AE8000 on a 120" 2,35:1 fixed screen

Living room system:
Sherwood/Newcastle R972, Mission 765's, SVS SBS02's, A/D/S MS3u sub, Yamaha YDG2030EQ
Yamaha KX-393 Tape deck, CDC 805 CD changer, Panasonic BD60, Sony turntable PS-T20
Panasonic TC-P50ST60, HD-PVR & WDTV Live, Harmony 900

The fact that Dan brought in Momentum Data Systems and DIRAC to implement the various systems together, and moved to a Texas Instruments based DSP platform instead of Cirrus says a lot about this platform(I know Dan/Lonnie/Ray along with these guys put in many a long nights). I'm really looking forward to putting this processor in the mix.

Re: Emotiva Says the XMC-1 Will Begin Shipping in March

I think part of this story is that MiniDSP is doing a partnership with Dirac at least as much as MiniDSP has an upcoming line of Dirac driven processors and Dirac has the UMIK-1 mic from MiniDSP as one of the prefered mics for EQing Dirac.

From the MiniDSP site: "A combo with UMIK-1 + Hardware platform + Dirac Live License for a plug&play experience. Once the Dirac measurement/tuning process finalized, up to 4 filter sets can be stored on the miniDSP processor for operation of Dirac processing without a PC."

So it looks like the Dirac group is getting lots of interesting relationships going.

This. I really do give them props for designing and building everything in the USA but based on the past I'll believe everything when I see it. Hopefully the reviews come quickly and are honest and positive. At that point I'll wish I had the money for it because the spec sheet looks amazing.

Re: Emotiva Says the XMC-1 Will Begin Shipping in March

Hopefully this product delivers all it is capable of - as far as the technology it is built around. The early adopters will have their woes as does all in this niche product market. Kudos to Dan for bringing it into the US for assembly! Really looking forward to detailed reviews.

I would have written less but I didn't have the time.

Re: Emotiva Says the XMC-1 Will Begin Shipping in March

It would be wonderful if the XMC-1 lives up to its potential. Many have been on the waiting list for years and have high expectations. Emotiva appears to be shifting some production from China to the United States with the introduction of the XMC-1 and early indications are that the majority of their gear will eventually be made domestically. It is a good trend to see!
