Well there's the one that's been seen in the wild in Hong Kong, although it was a recorded disc and not an 'official' one - although no idea where they got the content from. It was nicely packaged. I...

Well, we'll know soon enough. By my reckoning, XMC-1s should have Dirac by mid-September, if the '60 day' timescale is adhered to. I hope Emotiva manage to keep to this deadline. Their credibility on...
