UMC 1 vs. UMC 200; differences?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I know a lot of people really dislike emotiva, but for the people who have owned these two, is it worth it to pay a bit a more for the 200 over the 1?

I've searched for a lot and can easily find specs on the 200, but nothing besides reviews for the 1. I know most of the bugs have been ironed out by now, but is the 200 significantly better?

I know people will respond with neither, but I only have a choice between the 1 and 200.

So any advice?

Thanks.

My Brother in Law has the UMC-200 and REALLY likes it. I helped him set it up and was amazed at the features for the price. Sounded pretty good hooked up to his Parasound amp. Can't help you with the UMC-1 but I too read it was laden with bugs that were supposedly fixed with the UMC-200.

Good to hear!

The difference is a bit, but that's good to hear.

I replaced the UMC-1 with the 200. I prefer the 200.
SQ is about the same. 200 has much better HDMI switching and sub integration. I never experienced bugs with the 1, however they existed on many units.
I have owned most high end AVR's in the past two or three years and the 200 is superior to units I used at $1000 to around $2000.

With the use of a good calibrated microphone for full range measurements combined with REW, the P-EQ in the UMC-200 is a very powerful tool.

I've owned both and currently have a UMC-200. I had two UMC-1's and both had the same very slow HDMI switching and audio dropouts - especially with satellite tv. Every thing else seemed to work fine. The UMC-200 switches HDMI faster and does not have audio dropouts.
