The second scenario will be I have a few too many drinks one night between now and the 31 and I just end up buying a XMC-2.
Really whatâ€™️s the worst that could happen I order the XMC2 get the Emobucks use them to order an amp. If I donâ€™️t like the XMC-2 doesnâ€™️t it have a 30 return window? Further more Iâ€™️m sure I could sell it here in the classifieds outside of the return window and still have an amp to use with an alternate processor of my choosing.

If you do decide to buy the XMC2 then you have until 30 days AFTER Dirac is delivered by Emotiva to return. So if it takes them until July to deliver Dirac then you have a few months to decide to keep it.
I bought my unit at the end of August last year and I can still return it if I want, not that I’m going to. I’m very happy with my XMC2 and i use it daily with no issues. Also, frankly I’m actually having thoughts that I’ll be disappointed with Dirac because my stuff sounds so good right now. I did use REW and loaded the filters.
And you will have $900 in emobucks. Nice!
All the other brands that are competitive with the XMC2 are more expensive. Just keep
in mind that the XMC2 is NOT the RMC1. Its not $5000 with expansion slots that may or may not ever be useful. It’s a $3000 ($2100 w emo bucks) processor that does 9.1.6 and is also fully balanced with DACs in “Mono” mode across the front 3 and fully balanced on the other channels (no mono mode). It’s reference quality electronics imho.
I’m using mine as the front end with my Revel F228Be and ATI 4000 amp so with the ATI fully balanced too - the sound quality is simply spectacular. I don’t have a dedicated preamp and a fully balanced outboard DAC for 2 channel and I don’t need it. It’s that’s good.
Yes I’m still a bit annoyed with how long Dirac is taking, but I just want to make it clear - you are not buying a dud - this a high quality unit...sans dirac.
