Then I didn't understand what you were trying to say.

I am thinking of purchasing a UMC-200. Can anyone help with these questions:

1. I currently have a Onkyo 707 acting as a pre/pro (with parasound hca-1000 and hca-855 amps) and I often use the THX2 Cinema mode for movies which among other things expands 5.1 content to 7.1 content nicely. what options does the UMC-200 have for expanding DD 5.1 to 7.1?

2. I use magnepan speakers for my fronts and mirage OMNIpolar speakers for center and rears. How does the EMOQ 2 work with dipole, bipole, omnipolar type speakers? (In fairness, Audyssey has problems with these type of speakers as well).

3. I biamp my magnepan speakers using a DIY PLLXO (passive line level crossover). The PLLXO has to be customized for the Zout (output impedance) of the preamp and Zin (input impedance) of the power amps. My onkyo 707 has a Zout of 470ohms. What is the Zout of the UMC-200?

Any other general comments from anyone that has gone from a Onkyo 707 to a UMC-200? I have a minidsp that I use to PEQ my subs. I am very familiar with REW and am looking forward to trying my hand at REW and the UMC-200.

thank you

EMOQ will get your distances and levels set properly, but I'd recommend taking measurements with REW and feed them into the PEQ in the UMC-200 yourself. The PEQ is the UMC's greatest feature. With REW you should be able to get great results with the UMC.

Is the standard full range target curve in REW a good target to set the UMC-200 PEQ filters too?

I have used REW previously , but only for the subwoofer PEQ's on my minidsp.

It's a good start. Nevertheless setting PEQs or room correction in general is a pretty complex topic. Here's a good read: http://www.dirac.se/media/12044/on_room_correction.pdf

I'm not sure I understand your thinking. I have yet to run bass management on my unit. Therefore, it is at factory default, other than I set the front speakers to large, which would imply to not use bass management for 2 channel. I'm not even sure what direct even implies when the signal is digital. What I did notice is a definite difference in the sound between stereo and direct with an analog source.

If your speakers are set to "large" then you won't run into problems.

When you select "Stereo" mode then a 2 channel analog signal is routed through bass management, EQ and delay. That's probably why you hear a difference.

And since I have revealed myself to be a new owner of this model, does anybody have any insight as to why the pass through standby mode is barely usable? My display won't reconnect to HDMI once I turn it off, even leaving the satellite receiver on. This has necessitated connecting the box directly into the display instead of the preamp and using an optical cable for the sound instead, and even worse, require that I switch the HDMI input on the display to the preamp to do anything that is too difficult to use the front panel for.

Very happy!

As i only use the HDMI connection, the UMC200 fulfills all my expectations.

As long as you are aware with the limitations that Marcus discovered, and be sure that the Emotiva performs flawlessly on the functions you seek, its an amazing piece of hardware.

Does this have any volume leveling or "midnight" mode that still provides balanced sound and surround at lower volumes?

It will be a bit difficult to provide more feedback than the detailed analysis that has been done in this topic.
If the "problems" reported don't apply to your configuration (they don't apply to mine), you know how to use REW (or want to learn in the future), the UMC-200 is very hard to beat for the price.

I am happy now, with caveats.

I am a two-channel guy, and when I first used it, my digital source was a Squeezebox Touch via S/PDIF. The S/PDIF input of the UMC-200 is very problematic. It cuts off the beginning of songs that have a small amount of leading silence, and when playing playlists having a mixture of 16/44.1 and 24/96 material ripped from DVD-A, there are major audible hiccups when it changes resolution/bit rate. The combination of Squeezebox Touch and Denon 3312CI was flawless with S/PDIF.

I have since switched to an HTPC as the source, with an HDMI connection between HTPC and UMC-200. I'm using the same server software as before (Logitech Media Server), and on the HTPC side, I'm using the Squeezeplay client-side software that emulates a Squeezebox Touch, configured with WASAPI driver. Operation has been flawless so far: no cutting off the beginning of songs, and seamless transition from one bit rate/resolution to another with mixed playlists.

If you need a pre/pro that works properly with S/PDIF, consider something else. HDMI has been fine for me so far though. I am using firmware 1.52.02.47.

Well I sent my UMC 200 back for a refund.
My unit had a HDMI issue that caused constant audio cutouts when using my cable box. It happened on HDMI input 2-4 and with 3 different cables.

I was pretty disappointed with the response I got from tech support. Basically they said to use the optical or coaxial for audio from the cable box because cable boxes inherently have audio issues via HDMI.
Nothing mentioned at all about a possible problem with the unit itself.

I had previously used the same cable box with a Marantz 7001 and a Integra DTR 40.3 receiver with no dropout issues.

Not sure what I am going to buy now, though I am leaning toward the Denon X4000 .

Did a quick search and it doesn't appear anyone has posted their impression of the emo versus the similar nuforce unit.

I realize this is the emo thread so there's probably not a lot of love for the nuforce! smile.gif

But could a few owners play devils advocate and tell me why I might want to pay an extra four hundred bucks for the nuforce?

Other than these routing choices, which would make it less than ideal for a headphone user, what are the other gotchas here?

"Less than ideal"? You're very polite. That implementation is utter nonsense. Either someone is completely clueless or did it on purpose. Don't know which is worse.

For other gotchas please see post #1.

This is semi-interesting to me. I've had 2 tech support people that were very helpful. The first solved my problem with dropouts happening when I played 3D movies. The processor was not powerful enough when I had the colorspace output of the BD player set to 4:4:4. He had me switch to 4:2:2 and the problem cleared up.

The second problem was more troubling. I ran EmoQ repeatedly only recognized my subwoofer every time, and only once one of the surround sound speakers. All other speakers were not "heard" by the unit. The tech recommended that I restore the factory default, and then run EmoQ again. Same problem, but much worse. The HDMI handshake would only work after restoring factory default. Switching off my TV and cable box or the unit would result in my having to restore the default again. The tech admitted defeat and they sent me a replacement. The new one does not do any better as far as EmoQ is concerned, I have to hold the mic about 3 feet from each of my 5 speakers to register them in the first phase. Then I can put the mic on my tripod and go through the remainder of the setup. The tech thought the problem was the quasi-omnidirectionality of my Ohm Micro Walsh Tall front mains but the center and surrounds are conventional boxes.

Nevertheless I'm keeping the replacement, as I can't deny that it sounds pretty good.

Ha! Well, two things about the headphone implementation:

1. I have learned that sometimes when I learn why something happened, my initial reaction that is was wrong or dumb gets changed -- ie, that given the situation I would have behaved the same way. I'm not saying that is the case, here, because I have not and won't dig into it because of reason #2.
2. I don't care. My use case has the unit in another room, and I'll not be using the headphone output.

The other CONs are interesting:

Cons
- Price (expensive compared to AVRs with similar feature set) -- I guess I cannot find any unit with parametric EQ for cheaper. Is there one?
- No parametric EQ for back surrounds -- Annoying for sure, and though I don't have rear surronds yet, thats not to say I won't one day and this would be a deal killer at that point.
- Only 3 parametric EQs for the subwoofer channel vs. 11 for all other channels (except back surrounds) -- I've actually never seen a room measurement where more than three bands of EQ for a sub were needed. In fact, two bands have usually been enough for my purposes. So this could be a problem in other installations, but my situation won't be harmed.
- Distance settings allow only for 0.3ft (10cm) steps - No a problem for me. I move my head more than 10cm during the course of a movie anyway....
- No upload of EQ settings, EQ has to be set with remote (takes about 10 minutes per speaker) -- annoying for tinkering but acceptable for a set and forget situation.
- Only rudimentary manual/documentation available -- annoying
- After startup volume ramps up to last used setting which can create problems with universal remote controls -- is this the thing where surround mode must be manually selected every time? That is actually a real ergonomic problem and would make me choose another product with similar features at the same price, if there was one.
- No changelog for firmware updates -- yep, bad
- On-screen volume display hard to read on light backgrounds -- I tend to disable this.

No IP control. I know it's not in the list, but this is actually another feature I would loved to have seen. I'd trade the multizone feature for this.

Anyway, not a perfect unit, but almost a perfect fit -- and from what I can tell, I have to spend 2k+ to solve the annoyances.

Hello, I just bought a UMC-200 to replace my Sunfire THIV and have a question about programming a Harmony 880 remote. I am trying to configure the Harmony for the "Listen to CD" activity and there isn't any option in the Harmony database to select the "Analog 1" stereo input (it only shows HDMI1-4, TV, Radio, and Bluetooth as input options). The Emotiva remote doesn't have an "Analog 1" input button, so it doesn't look like I can use the learn function either to program the Harmony.

Is anybody using a Harmony remote and how did you get it to select the analog stereo inputs?

I don't have the UMC-200 but I wonder if the remote codes for the UMC-1 are similar? It's a long shot but you could try it to see if it works. Or you could teach the 880 that command from the UMC-200's remote. If not I'd post this question over at the Emotiva Lounge in the Processors sub forum.

Bill, My UMC-1 codes did not work with my UMC-200. At least the ones I already had in the remote didn't work.

The Emotiva remote doesn't have an "Analog 1" input button, so it doesn't look like I can use the learn function either to program the Harmony.

Is anybody using a Harmony remote and how did you get it to select the analog stereo inputs?

Are you using all 4 HDMI inputs? If not you can assign one of them for CD. Then go into the UMC-200 menu and set audio as Analog 1.
Hope this works for you.
