Hi Guys
I have been told that Tonewinner are the manufacturer of the Emotiva and the line up of Tonewinner equipment is nearly identical to the Emotiva. I was wondering if anyone has any thoughts or personal experience with the AT-300 unit or Tonewinner in general.
From what I can see Tonewinner amps are identical to the Emotiva amps they have only moved the power socket from one side to the other but all the specs are the same.
Any thoughts or experience would be appreciated.
Cheers

Hey everybody! I own the ToneWinner AT-300, in fact, it just got delivered to me very recently. One poster from stereo.net.au mentioned some bad experiences from this same unit. Well, I had several hours working and tinkering with my new AT-300. I watched about a dozen of movies from different genres and from different periods. I inspected the video and listened to the audio very carefully and NONE, I repeat, NONE of what that poster stated is present. There were no artifacts on HDR contents and skin tones look very natural, no high-pitched sound when on standby, etc. All in all, I can say everything is just working as it should. I believe there were a few firmware upgrades recently for this unit and I’m pretty sure these issues were already fixed. That poster from stereo.net should update his device’s firmware and he needs to update his post after that.
If I were to nitpick, the only criticism that I can see is the menu, which looks a bit dated. There’s a little bit of a learning curve, but you’ll get used to it. To be fair, the on-screen menu is laid-out very well, very basic, but it gets the job done! My overall impression is that the performance of the AT-300 is at par with famous pre-pro brands out there. One other thing I like is that the AT-300 is a tad heavy on bass. It gives the needed “thump” only when the scene calls for it though. Some might not like the extra bass but I TOTALLY LOVED IT!!! Priced at only one third of the average price of the named brands, the ToneWinner AT-300 lives up to its name as a real winner! So for all of you who wants to try the AT-300 but is totally discouraged because there’s little known out there about this unit’s performance, well now, let there be light. The AT-300 just works and it works real great, at a fraction of the price!

I just got my AT-300 a week ago, and it hooked up to a Outlaw 7000x and a Parasound 2003 amp running 5.2.4. Right off the bat, the Atmos surround never sounded this good. I can never duplicate it with an AVR. But I have an issue with the room acoustic software. After doing the room calibration, I did not notice any difference from the original settings (default settings). Also, all the speaker level adjustment has no effect on the audio output regardless how many db I increased or decreased. All the trim level adjustments have no effect on all the channels. I already upgraded the latest software from the SummitHiFi website. What am I doing wrong? Anybody come across this? The good thing is the system sounded fantastic as it is with no other issues.

I would reach out to Amir at Summit HiFi and ask. I have not run into that problem.
I am running the AT-300 and 2 Outlaw 7000X amps. My setup is 7.2.6 and it is a definite step up from the 7.2.4 I was running with my Marantz 7703. My unit has been rock solid. I am really happy I took the chance on this processor.

My issues with my At300 room acoustic calibration and output levels have been resolved. I had the audio mode set to 'Pure'. At this setting, all level, trim, room acoustic compensation levels have no effect on all the channel outputs. When I reset the mode to either Direct, Stereo, Dolby, Dts, etc, the issue is gone, and I can hear the level differences.

I did not know that. Thanks for clearing that up!
