Yeah, I'd be curious to know if those are paid endorsements. I also found a video where he raves about the Emotiva Stealth speakers (which I agree are quite nice). If you look at the equipment list...

How important is the shape of the room to get decent sound out of Atmos? I have a very strange room (it used to be a garage that the previous owner turned into a den). The ceiling above where my TV...

Is the idea that 1 set of speakers could handle both front and height channels? That could be pretty useful for people with limited rooms for placing additional speakers.

How would the reflective...

Yes. You probably won't get much benefit, but in theory it should work with everything from soundbars on up.

My guess is that Dirac was included in the mythical April shipment, and a defect was found there. Early on I stated in one thread or another that if "The first Emotiva XMC-1s shipped in April..."...

Interestingly, the XMC-1 also has 4 processors, I believe. I'm not sure why they need so much horsepower, unless Dirac is real beast.

The point is, with a larger company like, Dirac would have had much less control/influence in the partnership. With Emotiva, things are on more even footing.

Because the $2k (or $1k or $500) market is so much bigger than the $20k market. If Dirac's plan is to swoop in and replace Audyssey as the de facto room correction software on the market, they can't...

With the UMC-1, firmware updates were certainly necessary. I think he's assuming the same will be true for the XMC-1.

Until we know how the $100,000 is billed (lump sum or $10k a year), it'd be hard to even guess. Even then, there are a number of ways this could be put on the books, and since Emotiva is a private...

To be clear, the EMC doesn't equal money for nothing. Emotiva is entering into a contract that pre-sells 10 years worth of good. They're goods that I don't think anyone wants that badly, but they...
