I must say, things are getting very interesting in the word of Audio Video Processor
And also moving so fast
I am looking to purchase an AV7702mkII (all I need to do Atmos/DTS:X, for home theater only), to replace what use to be a Flagship (AV8801)
Due the CDN$, I can look at it two way, the AV7702mkII will go do down in value for the stock leftover, at the same time, my beloved AV8801, will have very little re-sell value when I am ready
All that said, I am glad to see Emotiva to get in the game
I do not own any of there products, but very much respect the name.
I am wishing them the Best, and also not to get any road block, as when Outlaw Audio tried to develop a 7.1 AVP (many years back from the manufacture in China, due to pressure from the bigger boys).
