     After buying my VT60 from Best Buy, I had Geek Squad install and program it along with the Emotiva UMC-200 and program my Harmony One.  They ended up sending 3 different teams to get it close to right. There is about 100 hours on the set now and two issues remain:   The motion blur/jitter is...
  3. Digital Hi-End Projectors - $3,000+ USD MSRP
    I have HTPC (nvidia GTX660) connected to a Emotiva UMC-200 and then out to a Sony HW50ES projector. I get sound and video but I lose some of the functionality of the projector. The projector sees the signal as 3d and turns the lamp brightness to high and no iris function. If I force the signal...

  6. Remote Control Area
    I've been looking at getting a nice universals remote for my setup. Pretty modest just a tv, projector, emotiva pre pro, blu ray player. I really liked the layout of the pronto tsu9300 just looks like a slick remote but I know it's been discontinued. Wondering if these are still usable with...

    I want to replace my Sunfire Theater Grand IV with a new AV processor. I love the Sunfire, but I want something that supports HDMI TrueHD audio. I don’t have a large budget for the upgrade, so the Emotiva UMC-200 is looking about perfect to me. Is there anything else I should be considering? I...

    The following is a completely subjective A/B comparison focusing strictly on perceived audio quality of 2 channel music reproduction via digital inputs. Many of the units compared are not equals of technology or price, but only a result of what I had access to and my own curiosity. THE...

     Finally building (hopefully) my dream theater/audio setup. For now, my questions are about the AV receiver/amp/stereo hookup. I will be using the system for 60/40 video/stereo. I "know" great sound/clarity and will be upset if Dark Side of the Moon doesn't floor me. Soooo I am about to...

    I have been happy with the A800, I upgraded to a stand alone amp last year, so I thought of looking at a separate processor as I am no longer using the amp in my receiver. Lots of good reviews on the UMC-200, any thoughts on the pro/con of doing this, or any other suggestions. Thanks!

     Long story short I need a new sound system. My old one was a 7.1 surround of beginner quality. After scouring the internet for speakers I came across Magnepans. I decided to wander down to a home audio shop to audition a pair as I had never even seen the before let alone heard them. Needless...

    Hi I was looking 1st at the Emotiva XPA-5 + UMC200, but I realized an AVR could be used as well (pre-out for the L/C/R) and AVR for surrounds What are your recommendations? I need upscaling by the way since I have a Wii and a PS2 And a 110V/220V power supply would be a plus.....but not a...

    All, Both are available for almost the same price point. Which one would you get? I don't need the amplifier section just the pre-pro THanks

     I wanted to share my experiences with Emotiva products and services in the hopes that others can avoid their highly questionable product quality and service. I purchased an XPA-3 in 2010. I live in an apartment (for now), so while I do enjoy listening critically, I haven't yet fully...

    I currently own a Denon 3311ci with Audyssey MultEQ XT and I picked up a Denon X4000 with no intentions of keeping it because I just wanted to fulfil my curiosity if XT32 would be any noticeable improvement over XT in which I had my doubts because of most people on here commenting it was mainly...

    About to go the separates route. Basic needs: - 3 HDMI input devices - Analog multi-channel SACD player - Current speakers are bi-amped - and I'd like to keep it that way, so I'd like a 7.1 processor that can do 5.1 with the fronts b-amped. - 5 speakers (FCR). Front and centers are 4 ohms...
