-DAC?? AKM4490 Verita DAC like RMC-1??
-is the USB DAC Roon compatible/tested??
As far as availability, I'll believe it when I see it. Emo isn't exactly accurate with their estimated release dates. Take their estimated time to release, double it and add 6 months and you'll have a more believable date.
Please forgive my cynicism.
-I believe it will run at 96k.
-It will likely be LE, with a $99 upgrade to full, just like with the XMC-1.
-Dirac has announced that they are the cause for delay, as they’ve run into some snags on the code for the chips, and the delay is not only affecting Emotiva.
As for the delay cynicism, it’s warranted, however I’m optimistic that delays will decrease, with Emotiva’s new system, which basically is a line of processors that will run on the same software/firmware, with the primary difference being what hardware is installed.
The latest XMC-1 firmware is the exact same file used for the RMC-1, meaning they are now developing a single set of code. Once the flagship is cleaned up and working properly, they simply need to produce the hardware variations and install it. SHOULD make things pretty slick. ONCE it is locked in and functioning properly.
