Re: Avr to separates

I enjoy messing around with room treatments and eq although I find myself sometimes making stuff worse than it was. That is really why I am interested in the new Emotiva processor coming out, it has a tact software built in. Really the purpose of the UMC-1 is to get into separates and more importantly get that upgrade coupon to save money on the xmc-1. The xt32 sounds interesting, I suppose another option is to get an onkyo 809 + a xpa-3 to power the l+r+c.

Sadly I would not count on that new Emotiva coming out anytime soon. I suspect it will be mid to late summer before you will see it possibly even longer. The 809 is truly your best option.

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

Sonnie, Trick McKaha and myself all wrote reviews for the UMC-1, I would recommend you read all these reviews as they each offer their own little twist...

Heres the area, three out the four top threads:

The 809 does NOT have XT32.

Re: Avr to separates

Hello,
I have hooked up a Classe SSP-800, a Meridian SSP, and several others since I started using Onkyo AVR's strictly as SSP's and have yet to find a reason to switch. I will say the forthcoming Outlaw Audio SSP has got me most curious as it has a awesome Feature Set including XT32/SubEQ HT.

Some snobs maintain you need to have "highly resolving" Speakers, blah, blah, blah, but by most folks criteria I do and truly have not noticed a real difference between them and the Onkyo 805, 875, 3007, and 3008 that I have been using.
Cheers,
JJ

HT
Speakers: Martin Logan Vantage (Mains), Martin Logan Stage (Center), Martin Logan Vista (Surrounds), Martin Logan Montages (Surrounds) Hsu Research VTF-15h MK2, Martin Logan Descent i (Subwoofer)
Amplification: Aragon 8008bb, Parasound HCA-3500, Parasound HCA-2205 AT, Parasound HCA-1000a
AVR/SSP: Denon AVR-4520CI
Electronics: OPPO BDP-93
Gaming Consoles: Sony PS4, Xbox 360 S (250 gb)
Display: Panasonic TC-P65ZT60, Sony KDL-55EX500, Sony KD-34XBR910
