We're trying to develop a rack mount solution, but there isn't a solid timeframe for it right now, but I do hear the concern.
Or send it to Middle Atlantic so they can make a custom face plate to add to their database so anyone can order it for their racks.

It's partially your fault Enrico! Think of all of the headaches the HDMI w/OSD has caused for Emotiva and their owners. How can you abandon them and not trade-in for an RMC-1 or XMC-2? You helped make this bed.

J/K, I suspect they would be in the exact same place trying to develop a web or VNC interface.

Really like what I am reading so far about this unit as someone who is also considering the RMC-1/RMC-1L line.


I like how this unit is including Auro3D, Dirac and fully differential/balanced XLR. Is there any confirmation if Dirac will run at 96khz or 192khz and if it uses the new Dirac 2.0 version?
Noticed in the Q/A on Monoprice's page that a Staff replied that IMAX Enhanced will not be supported. Is that set it stone or may change in future?
And doesn't IMAX Enhanced contain an "updated" DTS codec and is that at all related to DTS:Pro? Is DTS:Pro coming to this unit? If so, v.i firmware update or part of HDMI 2.1 upgrade?
Finally, does this unit have XLR L/R inputs or only toslink/rca? Was looking to use the ERC-4 which has XLR L/R outputs into the HTP-1.

Standard DTS:X decoding is used for IMAX Enhanced soundtracks (which are 7.1.4 channels). IMAX Enhanced is unrelated to DTS:X Pro (Pro just means more than 11.1).

Controlling brightness levels and being able to black out completely are two different things. The Yamaha for instances dims but doesn’t allow to black out the display like @gsr listed. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE offer a blackout option!!!!

This please!!
1) Ensure there's a setup option to disable the blue LED on the power button.
2) Ensure there's a setup option to turn the display off completely, turn the display on briefly when there's input from the user, and a mode that leaves the display on all the times.

This would greatly enhance the attraction of the HTP-1.

With Dolby prohibiting DTS:Neural processing to get Front Wides on Dolby soundtracks, I'll likely go for a Lyngdorf MP-50, which allows matrixed wides for all sources.

@MonolithGuy - a cool feature which somewhat relates to the comments above is the ability to have different speaker "mappings" saved as templates which can be quickly recalled for different surround modes. This is a common feature with higher priced SSP's like Datasat or Trinnov and greatly increases the flexibility of how the speaker layout is used.

Some examples of use cases I've seen people deploy with other processers:

- Being able to designate the height speakers as "Top Front + Top Rear" for Atmos playback, but having a separate template where they are designated "Front Height + Rear Height" for DTS:X or Auro3D playback.

- If you have a x.x.6 layout being able use a single pair of "Top Middle" speakers remapped as a dual mono array for the Auro3D "Top Surround" speaker (aka "Voice of God").

- If wide matrixing is not possible, having a saved template with the Surrounds + Wides designated as an array for SL/SR signals so the speakers are still used to broaden the surround immersion, while still having the standard template that can be used for native Atmos tracks

- Bonus points if the above scenario can happen with templates saving more detailed settings like level/delay... I know of Trinnov users who have a template where they feed the Front Wide speakers a copy of the FR/FL stereo signal but with some extra delay and reduction in level so they are sort of producing a synthesized lateral reflection to increase envelopment and keep those speakers in play vs. sitting there silent.


(also if you need another beta tester down the road in San Diego, I wouldn't say no )

That's a very generous use of the word "matrixed", considering that there is no matrix processing going on. Instead, each Front channel and Side channel are copied to their respective Wide speaker. Sending the same channel to two speakers isn't matrixing any more than a Y-splitter is.

With all the special request posted in this thread the RMC-1 will be out of beta long before the HTP-1 will see the light of day.

6.5 inched deep is really amazing!


If you in the marker for veteran beta testers, the Oppo beta group comes highly recommended
They are discreet, experienced, and bathe regularly.

Thanks, that will be a perfect fit on my AV stand.

I hope your UK branch will stock these in the future.

I'll avoid the RMC-1 jokes but all the stuff in @batpig s 's post (for example) could be included in the future. Get the unit stable including Dirac shipping within a couple months of the scheduled release and it will be a winner.

That 6.5 has to be a typo, it actually would look silly at 6.5. The original first post in this thread said 12" for depth. The pictures certainly make it look closer to 12 or maybe 16.5?

I think a Kuerig attachment should be a release priority. I can't stay awake till the end of most movies. What good is a processor I'm not conscious to appreciate? (Oh, and it should have the new latte frothy thingy included)

In pro-audio this is called matrix mixing. ADI and StormAudio use the same term. They aren't pulling the wool over anyone's eyes. That's just what it is.
From the Lyngdorf MP-50 manual:
Quote:
Matrix-Generated Extra Channels
The decoder in the device will decode a maximum of 12 discrete channels. However, for Atmos setups it will be possible to use up to four additional speaker positions which will then be generated in the switch matrix. Using the 12 discrete channels, the largest possible setups are either 5.1.6, 7.1.4 or 9.1.2. With the 4 extra positions, setups up to 9.1.6 are possible. When creating the larger setups, the switch matrix can generate Front Wide positions by mixing together Front channels with Surround channels and it can create Top Middle positions by mixing together Top Front and Top Rear channels. In the maximum possible example of 9.1.6, the decoder will use the 12 discrete channels for L, R, LS, RS, C, LFE, LRS, RRS, LTF, RTF, LTR and RTR.
• LW will then be generated as a mix of L and LS
• RW as a mix of R and RS
• LTM as a mix of LTF and LTR
• RTM will be a mix of RTF and RTR.

Not to take anything from the suggestions above but I don’t think this unit (and it’s ATI cousin) are targeting the same AV enthusiast demographic as the Altitude 16/32 does for price point.

Even the Alt16 is more than $12k and talking $20k plus for the Alt32-16. For the sub $4k target this is pointed for those are different customers, imho. I say this as a follower of both threads. In this thread I’m a future customer. In the Altitude thread I’m a dreamer/window shopper.

Great to read that finally we'll see a linear power supply onboard against an ordinary PSU one (less audio oriented)!!

This HTP-1 seems more and more promising!!

I'm sorry if this has already been discussed but I searched and didn't see it. I haven't read all 15 pages of this thread.
I wish this processor would offer standard outputs in addition to XLR especially for the subwoofers. I have the Monolith 7 amp which has XLR inputs but my subwoofer amp doesn't have them and I love my sub (an old ACI subwoofer)! I suppose I can always buy XLR to RCA cables.

Even $4k is a bit of a stretch for me. Half that would be more of my ballpark but you never know.

Performance need not be measured by the pound.
A switching power supply can match and even out-perform a linear power supply when properly implemented.
BenchmarkMedia products provide reference performance using switched supplies.

Any specifications on output voltage, signal to noise, and distortion (with and without processing enabled)?

Has it ever been stated if HTP-1 is a fully balanced design? As the real competition is going to be the RMC-1L (if they ever get the firmware stable and release it) vs HTP-1 most likely for me (as they are at the same price point), and the thd advantage of running the dacs in mono is a compelling feature.

That said mono balanced isn’t everything. I’m just curious. It would actually be an interesting comparison as if I remember right HTP-1 has the dac model above the rmc which would negate some of the noise advantages of running the dacs in mono mode. Then it would all come down to power supplies and firmware :P

The Description says ‘16 Balanced XLR Connectors (primary)’ for the audio output - are all of these truly balanced?
