I agree wholeheartedly...unfortunately I bought before I heard about any of these issues and had been watching it for months. As I understand it is a sibling to a Marantz or other big name unit with the addition of balanced (not truly) outputs so I thought it would be good to go. Oh well, worse case I'll give it to my dad and never buy Emotiva again. Best case, I'll finally get it hooked up and it'll be great for my needs...and maybe even get a firmware update. One can only hope.
