The styling does look quite similar to ToneWinner's AD7100HD/7100PA if you ask me. The glowing blue strips, the ever so slight two-tone color that corresponds with the unique shape. Even the units sitting next to the AD7100HD look in many ways like the pro-line.. the volume knob, case shape etc. Sure they swapped a few thing around on the front panel and added a few custom touches... this is not hard for a electronics producer to do. I like the looks of the EmoPro better but regardless they still look like they were birthed out of the same mother (Chinese factory). Same blue LEDs for each amplifier channel. I'm willing to bet dollars to donuts this is a Tonewinner. I haven't seen any processors or AVR come close this XMC-1/PCM spec wise but I am positive the details will leak. I have my doubts about Emotiva building this thing from the ground up so quickly.. I'm sure they are standing on someone else's platform and I'm perfectly fine with that 'if' things turn out better than the UMC-1. Given Emo's track record my eyes are on Winner/Sherbourne
