UMC 200 Feedback

Hey everyone,

So I am thinking of purchasing the umc-200 and the xpa amp as part of my living room setup. I always wanted the "separates" look to my system and read some really good things about Emotiva (too bad that you cant demo them at any locations) Again, nothing but good feedback about the amps, but getting mixed reviews about the processor. Some say the biggest downfall is that the firmware updates take forever or that picture quality running lets say an oppo through it, doesn't do the oppo it's potential. I understand that the UMC 200 doesn't have any video processing, so would you recommend using the processor for audio only and bring the sources directly to the display??
I understand that it's entry level av equipment and that there are plenty more options out there, but anyone who has had experience with this setup, feedback would be greatly appreciated!!!!
in addition, does anyone know when the new 7.1 balanced pre/pro is coming out (kinda really want that lol)

Owner of a UMC200! Its a great unit and also appealing as can be to look at!!

There's a new firmware update that I notice is available at Emotiva and hear it fixes some bugs that some are experiencing. However in my case no issues and works great!! Since you are an owner of the Emotiva amp, the UMC200 would be a great match, but if that does not matter to you I am sure the other choices will work out fine also.

As for the Oppo 103 as I own one too, I just use it as a BR player and running an HDMI cable from the oppo to the UMC200 (nothing fancy), but works great together.
