Finding info on the shipping status of the UMC-1 is as hard as chinese arithmetic, especially on Emo's site.


They say some have shipped, but has anyone gotten theirs yet? If so, when did you pre-order?

I know that some have shipped. Just not sure how many, and how far down the pre-order list they have gotten. Emo is being really tight-lipped about how many have shipped, and when pre-order-ers might get theirs. Is it ten? a hundred? a thousand? Is it a week? A month? A year?


It also seems that there is some frustration among some pre-order-ers about being pushed back in line if they want to take advantage of Emo's 40% off upgrade program. Is this in fact true?


Very little info available on Emo's site or their forum, so I thought I would ask here.

I preordered mine at the beginning of May 2008, a month after the preorder list originally started, and I just received mine.

They said the are now through the first pre-order list and have been working on the second since at least last week. This does not include upgraders w/40% deal coming, those are being sent out as 20% of each shipment.


I am on the first pre-order list as a upgrader and was also on the second pre-order list from within two hours of when it opened.


I have not received an e-mail about my upgrade unit but did get notified last week for my full retail order and received the UMC-1 yesterday!




Oh and it ROCKS!

Breathing life into an old thread. Anyone else gotten their UMC-1 lately? When did you get on the preorder list?


I've been on the list for well over a year, and still not a sound from Emo.


Has anyone ordered one "from stock" and gotten it?

I was on the second pre-order list & I got mine several months ago. I believe I signed up some time last fall.

Well, I went to the Emo site a few minutes ago and it looks like you can buy one from stock.


I never got notice that my pre-order number came up.


Not cool.

Probably saved you some frustration in dealing with firmware that did not work. It seems to be better now. But they are still making changes for some known issues.

rtart,


Have you emailed Emo directly and told them that you're just a little ticked? What was their response?


And I have to agree with Michael on this one, probably saved you some headaches, though I know how you must feel. I get pretty antsy too when I am waiting for a new toy.

Thanks guys. Good advice. My point, however, is that I thought the point of a pre-order list was to get in line and get mine before someone else who ordered later gets theirs. Maybe I am still in line ahead of others, but if that's the case, then someone placing an order today is going to be unhappy. Unless, of course, I get the email today...


I was initially very excited about the UMC-1 to go with my XPA-5 and UPA-2, but waited, and waited....and finally bought a Onkyo PR-SC885 well over a year ago. I was planning to buy the UMC-1 and sell the 885, or at least try out the UMC-1. Based on the initial bugs of the UMC-1 I've hear about, and the handling of the product intro, I may just pass. I really like my 885, and it's feature set is more like what we've heard about the XMC-1. And it works..


BTW, what is so difficult about sending me an email once in a while telling me where I am in line? Why has info been so difficult to get? (That's why I started this thread!!)

I received my E-Mail last week asking for credit card info.I ordered early this year I believe,maybe January.

I will pass on the unit,too buggy for a not so tech savvy person like myself.

Not to mention the update process which can be a REAL pain in the posterior.

I like the feature set but there are some bass issues which I do not care for.

I know its a good price for the unit,but too many issues still at hand.I want to enjoy a unit, not do workarounds and be on the phone with tech service all the time.

I don't mind spending a few extra dollars for a proven brand.Yes,I know,all avr's and pre/pros have their bugs.
But with careful research you can obtain one with minimal quirks.
