The UMC-200 has some known quirks and flaws which will probably never be corrected by Emotiva - see post 1. The only feature really justifying the investment is PEQs.

I would disagree. I have a Harmon Kardon AVR 8000 and a couple of Sony ES SACD players that work fine. The HK is a beast and probably their last great receiver with a heck of an amp and the sacd players don't have HDMI, of course the HK doesn't have HDMI either. I am leaning towards using the pre-inputs on the HK to drive the amps on the receiver and the Emotiva would successfully incorporate my older and still going strong components with it's own pre inputs and I would finally be able to stop using digital outs and HDMI at the same time and simplify the wiring. The Outlaw doesn't have pre inputs and I don't want to spend over a grand on a receiver that has them.

I haven't made up my mind but the Emotiva seems to solve my puzzle. Unfortunately, I have heard to many Onkyo horror stories which includes a relative.

That's a special case but it would work. I guess you already know that the UMC-200 can't process the 7.1 analog inputs.
