I need some information. I got an Emotiva UMC-1 about a month and a half ago. While powering down, although it doesn't happen all the time, I noticed speakers pop right before the amp shuts down. Now, it's now a loud "POP" where it would cause damage to the speakers, but it's defnitely audible and it's getty very annoying.
When I contacted Emotiva, they told me that the trigger should have a delay, meaning it should power on the amp couple of seconds after the processor powers on and should turn off the amp just before powering down (to avoid any spikes). Well, the trigger delay seems to work during powering up process, but while powering down, there doesn't seem to be any delay. If there is one, it's way too short.
Any other Emotiva UMC-1 owners out there who's experiencing this problem? Yes, I did read other threads stating that they wouldn't recommend UMC-1, but for now I just want to solve this problem. If this is normal, I would deal with it or come up with some remedy. I just want to know if my unit is defective or not.
Since I passed 30 day mark, I can't exchange for a new unit. I would honor their warrenty though. That means I would be without a processor for who knows how long...
Any info would be greatly appreciated.
