I'm going for 9.3.8. I'm wired for that already...and I just need 4 custom bamboo enclosures and one prefabricated crossover from DIYSG to finish all 17 speakers. Ohh yeah... I also need to build one large sub enclosure (I have 8 Exodus Audio Anarchy drivers sitting around so I'm going to out them under my couch ).

I have one XPA-5 Gen 1 and three XPA-5 Gen 2 amps. I've I bought the Gen 1 new and the other three used over the last year while waiting for the RMC-1. Right now I have three HTM-12 speakers for LCR and six Concentric-8 for front wide, side surround and and rear surround. Although not installed yet, I have a eight baffle only Concentric-8's that will be installed IB style. in the ceiling. For subs I have four IB 18" up front and four sealed 12" as nearfield in the rear. I still have to build the enclosure for the Exodus Anarchy drivers.

Sweet and beautiful!!!
Love the look.
And.... another front wall IB sub guy
Wish I could have done dual line arrays, but my backchamber is a utility room that stops just a few feet behind the front wall.

Well, I've got to think if there is any chance the RMC-1 is delivered, shipped or taking pre-orders (for a later shipping date) we would get a podcast today. While I'd be disappointed if Emotiva misses this date, it won't be the end of the world. I'm still enjoying my theater with my Marantz 7704 and wishing for the days I can get a Emotiva processor back in the rack.

*fingers crossed for some sort of communication today*

They announced this over in one of the Lounge threads a couple days ago:

“I think Nick is keeping you all posted that the 11/15 date is still a go. To make it fair, we decided to not take pre-orders on or offline. We're simplifying the ordering process. We'll have runs of RMCs that we'll release on the website, and when they sell out, we won't take orders until the next batch is ready for us to sell. We won't have a rolling pre-order system which is much more streamlined. The best way to stay up to date on the latest news and updates about the RMC is to sign up for the dedicated RMC interest email on the product page.”

I wouldn’t expect any additional communication before the 15th, but I could be wrong.

@bmcleod Thanks for that update. I didn't see that post despite trying to keep up with all the RMC threads.

Has anyone who has signed up for that list received an email? I attempted to enter my email address on the product page a few weeks ago and received a message I was already signed up. But I have not seen a single email about the RMC yet.

I’m also signed up and haven’t received anything, I’m thinking they don’t want to say any more until they’re ready for sale. Hopefully they’ll send an eMail blast to people on the list the same time they go live.

Didn't you get the memo from the Mayans - the world ended 21 Dec 2012. The only ones left are those waiting for Emo to hit just one deadline and then we too can pass on.

Exciting news that they are shipping Nov 15th. They made it!!!

Still wish they provided a few more details on the product or sales process for anyone with discounts (upgrade for life or 40% off cards). Would be interesting if the Holiday store credit sales includes the RMC-1. Could mean an extra $200 off (if you want to buy more stuff within 6 months).

Just contact customer service directly like I did - if you have a 40% off card, they ask that you send it in, they confirm it for the RMC-1 and will send an invoice when they are taking orders. The UFL process may be the same.

Question for the Emotiva guys...

With this promotion they have going on now (up to $200 off a future purchase), how do you get the reward and how long does it take to get the reward? I bought an XPA-3 today and need to order another AMP as well (XPA-7) so I was going to use the $200 reward/credit on that. And, does anyone know if you get another reward/credit on the new purchase (that used the previous reward)? I'm also very interested in the RMC-1...thank you!

They said in the podcast that they would be sending out an email the moment it is available for purchase on the 15th. Available only to US customers until January-ish in case of show-stopping product recalls or last second emergency firmware patches.

So if you don't want to be an early adopter / Emotiva RTM beta tester then I'd suggest you wait until Janurary or not until reviews have come out and people seem mostly-happy and not bug-ridden.

All I know is that the XSP-1 is rock solid, the UMC-1 was a hunk of junk.
No idea what the UMC-2 or MC-7 or XMC-1 has been like.
and god only knows how the RMC-1 will be like...

It’s a new promotion so I don’t know for sure, but the credit should be available in your account right after your purchase, or be contained in the eMail receipt you get. If you don’t see anything you should call.

Thank you! Just sent someone there (not sure if it was you or not?) a PM w/ an offer.

I think the reason I did not qualify for the promotion credit is because I already used my military/veteran discount (10%). Kinda bummed because the promotion is 20% on a $1K purchase. Oh well...

The rmc-1 looks like just what I need in my homecinema (2 rows, 540 sq ft, 11.2.6 already installed). As long as Dolby Atmos will be played, everything is ok, but what happend to the speakers if not? Will they be silent? What do you think?

You might want to check out the last couple months of the Dolby Atmos thread, you will have the Dolby Surround Upmixer.

I'm still not convinced that it will actually happen. too much 'hoop-la' over the past 2 years to put any confidence in some arbitrary number thrown out there yet again during CEDIA 2018, let alone from CES 2017.



They have until tomorrow to ship... probability.. 0% , but it's still possible though..

They have until tomorrow to ship... probability.. 0% , but it's still possible though..
Since there’s only one more day we don’t need to speculate too much. They’ve stated that they’ll only take orders for product they have in stock, and when that runs out they won’t take more orders until they have more product.

So they should start taking orders tomorrow and ship shortly after, maybe even tomorrow. I don’t think getting a box out the door tomorrow is the measure of meeting the 15th date, but the first batch should be headed that way.

You provide a 0% probability, but still say there is a chance. Wouldn't that mean your 0% probability is wrong?

Are you aware Emotiva announced last Friday they are planning on shipping tomorrow? They have been taking and answering questions all week about the ordering process and have given no indication there could even be a one day delay. The only thing to note is they said they have a limited number of RMC-1 for the first run, and there will be another limited number of RMC's for the second run in December. They hope to then have full manufacturing Q1 of 2019.

Probability = The likelihood that a given event will occur. (will occur)

Possibility = Potentiality for favorable or interesting results (can occur)


Now don't take me the wrong way.. I do appreciate the effort that Emotiva is putting forth on stipulating limited runs, and batches, but please realize, Emotiva does not have the best record on meeting the schedules they've put forth in years past, even so close to actual plan release/ship dates.


I really do hope those that have pre-ordered get the gear that they have waited all so long to experience. I just hope that it lives up to those consumers expectations for what they've waited for, (including you deewan.. absolutely... I give you kudo's for sticking by them after so many missed promises...)



The AVS'rs with the hands on experience will help those of us not willing to take the plunge, or wait for them to get released, to get a better feel for the actual capabilities and the experience that can be provided.


Like I have said in previous posts, I do hope that it (RMC-1) lives up to the expectations of the industry at the bang for the buck price point and capabilities...

I don't need to argue about definitions of words, just found it interesting you seem to say there is a no chance it will occur, but it has potential to occur.

There is no pre-order list. Not sure what list you are referring too. Emotiva has only accepted names for the RMC for those who want to receive communications. It is not a place holder for purchasing a unit. Emotiva certainly has not collected any money for the RMC-1.

I don't need any kudo's for sticking with them. When I completed my room and needed a processor so I purchased a Marantz 7704. The processor I really needed wasn't available at a price point I was willing to pay. So I kept up-to-date on the release of a product Emotiva said they would release. That took very little effort and no money. Emotiva's delays has not cost me a dime while I've stayed informed nor have the delays caused me to have a non-functioning system.

All that said, I am very excited for a new piece of gear in my room. The next 30 days should be fun with new processor and new projector.

FYI


the first AVS member who actually receives an RMC-1 has the right to start an owners thread....

please take the high road in every post:do not respond to or quote a problematic post: report it

Heads up... Dirac will not be enabled at launch. It will come at a later date via firmware update per Keith at Emotiva.
