Based on Jessica's comment, it'll be with the upgrade for life discount. Then you can sell your 40% off card when the XMR-1 comes out or buy the XMR-1 with it. :) Geez, if you sell it for close to...

If there is ONE guy at Emotiva you want to avoid talking to.... it's Chad.

The UMC-1 is not a generation 3 processor. So yes he can save his 40% off card, but he will need to pay $1850 ($1800 if he is in the e-club already). Then he will be in the upgrade for life program....

No, just showing that you have to USE the 40% off card to be enrolled in the upgrade for life.

I don't want anyone to be misinformed. It's a quote from Emotiva's upgrade for life policy.

That makes no sense at all. As posted earlier Emotiva stated that even if you bought one of their original processors (DMC-1?) well before the 40% card was created you would be entitled to Upgrade...

I don't think you are auto enrolled in the upgrade for life. You have to use the 40% off card to be enrolled. Big Dan misspoke but he can change the ruling too :).

Looks like you are in a great position.

If you can wait it out (who knows how long)... I think the discount card will garner close to $1k meaning you can get the XMR-1 for a little over $2k....

1. Don't buy a pre pro until it offers something new that my existing unit does not. i.e. Wait until mine is obsolete.

That's solid advice to wait until 2016.

The xmc-1 will not get Atmos, that's been comfirmed.

It'd be a miracle if the Marantz sounded anywhere near the level of the XMC-1. But for the...

Believe me, I wish you were right. I haven't lost more than 150 on any of my old Emotiva gear, however I knew this would be different.

I actually made $25 on an XPA-5 I bought used.
