Am curious, how immediately noticeable do you find the C2's imperfect TM during actual movie/TV watching?
Is it something you always notice without even thinking about it, or something that you have to consciously listen FOR in order to recognize?
I have the Emotiva C1 with the "matching" B1, but to be honest I never noticed anything wrong when I had the C1 with my Wharfedale 10.1 which have a very different sound signature.
~ Are you a "geek hobbyist" obsessed with squeezing out that last 5-10% improvement? The economy will thank you...especially the Chinese one. Or are you more of a get-set-and-forget "casual user" who simply wants to increase your enjoyment of movies, TV and gaming? Relax, HT isn't rocket science, nor does it have to cost an arm and a leg---especially if you ignore the aforementioned vocal minority. And remember to smile...it's just a silly hobby, after all. :)
