I certainly wouldn't disbelieve what you are saying. But my personal experience with Emotiva staff including the owner and things weren't always "transparent". The staff at Emotiva could be telling you certain things that might not be totally accurate. In other words their side of things and not Dirac's. Emotiva can spin the current issue with Dirac anyway they wish. I just look at a company that has a long history of over hyping and under delivering as far as release dates for components and needed upgrades for those components.I spoke to one of the principals at Emotiva a while back but that’s as far as I am going to say about who.
Dirac said they were going to write the interface code, but they didn’t have time. They probably had their hands full with their own Dirac Live 2.0 & 3.0 (speculation). Then Dirac outsourced the work to some contractors in Croatia (I believe) and that didn’t workout so Emotiva with their already slim crew of developers who were already tapped with trying to stabilize the RMC1 firmware had to go all hands on deck to get Dirac solutioned.
If there are folks in the forum that do not believe me, it’s ok. I don’t know you and you don’t know me. If one of us died later today the other would be none the wiser. Just move on to the next topic.
