You'll get a shipping notification. Other than that, I don't think there's any way to know for sure. Most people are seeing right around 2 weeks, but a few have seen longer times, and a couple got...

The last couple of people to receive the XMC-1 have received it with the mic included, and the manual has a comment about the ability to upgrade to the full version of Dirac Live. Dirac isn't...

Funny you should say that. Just minutes ago I posted on the Emotiva forum saying, "Dirac, as wonderful as it may be, isn't magical."

I was happy (subjectively - no measurements, unfortunately)...

I logged on to the lounge for the first time in a couple weeks today. When I saw Flavio's post, I got so excited! Needless to say, I was bummed when I saw the content. I'm still a bit skeptical of...

As long as they don't duff the mic...i'm concerned about the no calibration file comment. My hope is that Dan is just mistaken. I'm not a dB variance here or there, but once we get to 3 or more,...

I guess my thought is that in the end, all that matters is which processor can give you the best sound in your room. The various different tools the processor has at its disposal are a means to an...

Wy wouldn't Krell's auto EQ vs. what you can accomplish with the XMC-1's PEQ be a valid comparison. In the end, it's about which processor can get you closer to your ideal, right? Granted, we'd...

I'm not sure about the how they connect, but a couple people found that cable came loose, and reseating them fixed the problem:

Nicely done. For folks without a fully functional PEQ or a processor that doesn't do bass management correctly (like what I had previously), this is a huge deal. Steam with full room correction FTW!

I'm not sure about that. miniDSP has designed their system to work with their mic only, yet the umik-1 mic works wonderfully with REW. In fact, it's the mic of choice for many people (myself...

I'll try to take a look at it this weekend, but I believe we'll also require an update on the XMC-1 side in order to import and export filters. Right now I can backup or restore all XMC-1 settings...

I'll let other, smarter guys help you with evaluating the measurements. I'll just point out that the two graphs that say "No Smooting" in the title are indeed smoothed.

I'll just point out that if you decide to purchase the XMC-1, do your self a favor and join the e-club fof $50. It'll gain you a 10% discount on XMC-1, for a net savings of $150. I'm assuming that...
