MCA-C5 or ACA-E5 SPHERE?
I need some advise about the sphere system. I purchased one awhile back for a steal, and then found out there is absolutely no way to configure yourself....ever. The reason I like the SPHERE is for the extra source inputs, and I like that you can use the composite video ports to distribute coaxial SPIDIF to any zone you want. I'm at the point where i'm almost ready to just bring someone out to program it for me, BUT I have a couple of important questions I need to answer first.
Is the ACA-E5 compatible with the touchpoint? Full metadata, coverart, etc?
Is the ACA-E5 compatible with the DMS? metadata and all of that available at keypads? through touchpoint too?
Should I just scrap the whole SPHERE idea? I really like that the MCA-C5 is fully configurable by the end user, but I really hate to give up those extra source inputs on the ACA-E5
If anyone knows anything at all about this stuff, PLEASE help me out (no one ever wants to talk about SPHERE stuff, lol) Or if you can recommend a SPHERE integrator in the DFW area that would be great too....
