Since a couple people indicated that they were interested in seeing the difference between the raw room response and the the EQ'd room response, here goes. For each measurement I'll post the...

That's pretty much my take as well. They seem to be having a hard time with that basic OS. If Dirac works, all will be forgiven, and I'll deal with the weirdness, since it works well for me, and...

The LFE sweep *should* look the same (although for some reason, in your case it doesn't), but 10dB SPL higher. If everything is working the way it should, if you run a sweep of HDMI1 with all...

There's nothing to account for, as LFE is supposed to be 10dB hotter than redirected bass. Only when you're doing sweeps is the LFE signal the same as the redirected signal. This was recently...

Output on HDMI4 should be 10dB higher than output on HDMI1. The LFE output is 10dB hotter.



I've found something similar happens to me from time to time, although nut just when I'm running...

That's precisely what I did for my starting point. Obviously, I adjust from there, based on the in room response, and my own opinion of whether a filter is needed.



Nothing to forgive. I'm...

Now that you've had it for a while, we'd love to hear your thoughts. I know a lot of us are coming to the XMC-1 from the UMC-1 or UMC-200. It would be good to hear from someone coming for a highly...

I was under the opposite impression. I thought with the included version of Dirac, you get what Dirac gives you, rather than being editable. Of course, it's all hearsay right now...

Movie night was an absolute blast. I finally picked up Jurassic Park on Blu Ray, and since my (5 days short of) 10 year old son is obsessed with dinosaurs, I picked that as our movie for the...

As far as I know, no review units have been sent out. A few have been committed, but I'm pretty certain Emotiva has no intention of letting a review unit out into the wild until Dirac is out. It...

I didn't think Kris had a review unit. I thought his comments above were about testing his SSP to see if it also exhibits the input bleeding issue.

That's why I was willing to take a flyer on the XMC-1. I also had a 40% off discount, so at $1200, a process with Dirac is a worthy risk. I've got my fingers crossed that they get Dirac sorted out...

Wait...if you have HDMI out from your computer, why are you doing anything with the green 3.5mm jack in the back? Pass audio over the HDMI cable. I apologize if I didn't understand you correctly.
