· In 60 days or less, you will receive:
o Software update for Dirac on a USB flash drive
o Calibration microphone
o Updated user instructions
· Please note: Your XMC-1 is complete and fully functional in all other details
Since noe of us are XMC owners should we post in this thread?
Most know that I have the UMC-200 and am very satisfied with it. All Emo processors have bugs, however they do not have a negative impact on all users. IMO if you like their processors as you receive them they are the best bargain that I have found.
OTH do not expect much if anything beyond what you initially receive.
WTF would want to buy a processor that is missing the one thing that might make it stand out in performance?
For a start their track record with updates is terrible.
Did the beta units have Dirac? If not then the beta tests are useless. If yes then why can't the units that will ship have it also?
After Dirac is installed to make the unit whole as advertised will owners get another 30 days return privilege?
This is like buying a new car with 1000hp and no steering wheel and having it installed later. Who wants to just sit in the drive way and rev the engine until you can actually test the power on the road?
