  2. XMC-1 getting long in the tooth.

    Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    I currently have an Emotiva XMC-1. I waited a long time for it. I purchased it with an upgrade from a UMC-1, after dealing with all of those issues. I am now interested in trying 4k/HDR and Dolby Atmos / DTS-x. Emotiva has priced the upgrade for those at ~$1,000 and Atmos requires 4k/HDR. I...
  3. XMC-1? Or something else?

    Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    Would like to try Dirac and have been eyeballing the XMC-1 for a few years. I've been reading mostly overwhelmingly positive reviews for the XMC-1. Would seem, to me, to be the best $2000-ish pre-pro on the market. However, I have seen a few negative comments about random bugs, clicks/pops...
  4. REW using XMC-1 mic

    REW Forum
    I purchased an XMC-1 a while back. I recently got around to recalibrating my sub system using REW. Since my son has liberated my mixer with phantom power I can't use my Behringer mic. I decided to try the XMC-1 USB mic. It seemed to work swimmingly, but I have no idea how good/bad the...
  5. REW plots comparing Dirac PC software compared to the XMC-1's Dirac software

    REW Forum
    I posted the response below at Emotiva's website, but I thought I'd post here as I'm looking for more technical experience for my learning benefit (I'm an EE although audio isn't my concentration). I am interested in improving my system even more, but I suspect I crossed the diminishing returns...
  6. Emotiva Gives Its XMC-1 A Much Needed Hardware Update

    Home Theater, Audio and Video News
    Nearly two years ago, Emotiva released its then-highly-anticipated XMC-1 7.2 Channel Preamp Processor. Following an elongated development cycle, it had the unfortunate fate of entering the market during a period of major technology shifts including the emergence of immersive sound and 4K video...
  7. Issue with timing reference loop back and XMC-1 sub time alignment

    REW Forum
    I've been trying to use a timing reference, but keep getting a frequency response plot that looks altered. I initially had lots more interference until I disconnected my amp from the XLR connection, but after figuring that part out, the freq plot looks decent, but is skewed only when using a...

    Home Theater System Recommendations
    Fixing to place the order within the next 1hr or so. Any reason not to? And would something for 1800 be better? Example: Marantz?
  9. Xmc-1 & xpr-5

    Home Theater System Recommendations
    I'm about 83.572% sure I will be purchasing these two items in September when my bonus arrives. My desire is the XMC-1 w/ the Dirac built in and the fact it handles stereo subs which I think will allow integration of duals subs into the mains for music better (i think). I also want the XPR-5...
  10. Life after XMC-1, or what to choose instead of an XMC-1

    Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    I will probably not be purchasing an Emotiva XMC-1. I have been suffering through 2+ years of UMC-1, and want to replace that, while keeping my existing 7 channels of XPA amplification. So what is someone with a limited budget to do? I have about $1,200 to play with plus whatever I can sell my...

    Emotiva recently released exciting news concerning its highly anticipated XMC-1 AV Preamp. The first piece of news will undoubtedly please those of you that grumbled when the company missed its projected February 2014 ship date; the first units are now expected to ship in March 2014. While...
  14. Anyone planning on getting an Emotiva XMC-1?

    Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    I see that Emotiva is taking pre-orders on their new AV preamp. The features look very impressive and it is made in the USA which is a nice bonus. They are using Dirac live 7.2 for room correction, this is something I am unfamiliar with and have not been able to find any real reviews of the...
