Yes. And confirmed.

It's back!! Wine of the Week! Clos Martinet Tinto, Priorat DOCa, Spain ~$60. If you've not had a good Priorat, you've not truly tried Spain's smallest, yet most unique terroir.

I think I read where it will cost 29,999 pounds. If that's right, that will equal A LOT in US dollars.

It ain't easy being green.

^Bill,

Didn't Emotiva buy out Sherwood? Maybe big Dan next excuse to delay the XMC-1 is to include some features Trinnov? This will buy Emo a few years of time as the drama continues...

Yeah you don't have to us all 32 outputs. 16 speakers would be more realistic.

I'm thinking three up front with six surrounds and six heights would do in even the most enthusiastic of AVS'er.

You don't need 32 speakers to utilize 32 channels. Active bi-amping, tri-amping eats channels very quickly (and Trinnov is known to do it well also). Only the tri-amped front stage (LCR) already utilizes 9 channels. Add to this 4 bi-amped surround speakers, 3 front heights and pair of subwoofers (let's say DBA for the best possible bass experience) and you are already left with only 7 spare channels for 3 overhead speakers.

If they expect to sell no more than 10 units in total - yes, they are for sure.

My shopping cart just gets fuller and fuller. Let's see...

(1) Trinnov Altitude 32-channel preamp
(4) Mogami Gold DB-25 to 8x XLR snakes
(32) Goldmund Telos 5000 amps
(33) Silver SuperKord Signature -SD 2 power cords
(32) Kimber Select KS-6068 speaker cables
(32) Focal Grand Utopia loudspeakers

What am I missing?

why do you have such cheap Mogami snakes on your list? it's just 149.95. get a Chord or similar for 10x-20x the price to go with this great system. would also harmonize more with the Kimber Selects and give you more dynamics and tight clarity.

Just daisy chain a few of them together then.

I really don't understand it. For once, an "high-end" processor offers, at least in theory, more than ordinary AVRs. 32 speakers mean the possibility of very precise sound placement, with a very large sweet spot.

Why should anyone use it as a glorified crossover?

Most will opt for active crossovers, so if someone has 3 way speakers up front and 2 ways all around, you'd use through 26 channels with a standard 11.1 system.

It's back!! Wine of the Week! Clos Martinet Tinto, Priorat DOCa, Spain ~$60. If you've not had a good Priorat, you've not truly tried Spain's smallest, yet most unique terroir.
