I was one of the first to own and report here of the Foundation. I unfortunately had to part with mine. But I loved it so much I will definitely be buying another. Even if there is 15 other processors out there to choose from.
I had never found that perfect balance of sound from deep bass to the highest highs. The Foundation gave that to me.
It really is stunning how it can be so dynamic but so smooth at the same time. I have never heard a component that could do this.
And don't get me started on the dialog intelligibility. I have said it before, but it really is absolutely incredible.
The bass is awesome. Along with very good soundstage depth.
The only faults are owners manual is a joke. Finicky eq, and that cheap mic.
I had no problems with setup. To me it was pretty straight forward. I actually loved the remote. I used it fine while watching movies. I actually like the quality feel of it. And the button layout was good also.
I am not lying when I said I cried when I boxed it up after I sold it.
I have shed tears after reading the reviews. I knew I had a great product that many were saying was cheap china made emotiva junk. Way overpriced and so forth and so on. I didn't really care if I was the only person that ever bought one. I knew what I had and I am so so glad that the world knows now also. That is 6 reviews now and every single one has been simply fantastic. I I agree with all of them.
I would like to thank Kal Rubinson for sticking with the review of the Foundation. I know it took a long time to get one in for review. A lot of people trust your opinion more than most. So it meant a lot for you to give the Foundation high marks. So again thank you for the review. I would like to think I helped a little with the taping the mic to the stand part.
Again anybody that wants a great sounding processor for music and movies try the Foundation I guarantee you wont be disappointed.
