Yes you can. Just use the generic EQ setting in REW. That what I do with the XMC-1 which has a robust PEQ.

Okay, so here's my attempt to get you at least some of the information you asked for. Take a look at it and let me know if I did things correctly. First of all...let me admit that I hadn't bothered...

I'm happy to do this, but I'm not sure how. If you can give me steps to follow, I should be able to get it done. The sound card I'm using to measure is pretty simple, and doesn't have XLR inputs or...

I previously did some measurements of the loudness compensation at the sound card (rather than in room like you) for a user on the Lounge to see how it was behaving. I went from 0dB to -40dB. ...

The date for Dirac is unconfirmed. The going theory is end of September, but with any date and Emotiva, the best policy is to grab a glass of wine, take a deep breath and enjoy some music. ...

A couple points:


If you send a PCM signal to the XMC-1, that's what it'll play. It won't play DTS-HD MA or Dolby TrueHD unless you change the PS3 setting to bitstream. Regardless, it's the...

If you use the mode button of the XMC-1 remote, can you change it from PLIIx, to surround mode? Also, when you go into the setup menu for the input your using (say, HDMI1), change the default...

I've posted before on the Lounge that Emotiva needs to hire an experienced release manager. It's impressive how badly the release has been bungled for what is really a pretty good product. And this...

My point is, you still need something to do volume control, bass management and AD conversion. The nanoAVR is a piece you have to add to another processor or AVR. It can't stand on it's own. ...

You're mistaken on both counts there:


You'll need more than amplification. You'll need full processing. I think we can all agree that, at a bare minimum, volume and bass management are...

Won't Dirac in the XMC-1 make the DSP controlled subs redundant? Assuming, of course, that Dirac in the XMC-1 works as well as Dirac on a laptop.

Al understood the point I was trying to make, even if I didn't word it perfectly. Emotiva is trying to provide a high value version of what folks like Krell, McIntosh bring.

The latest "curve" is unsubstantiated at this time. I'd recommend not getting too spun up until there's something more substantive.
