I returned my JBL Synthesis SDP-55 today. Just too many issues with the firmware right out of the gate and I guess I am not patient enough to wait for them to be resolved. I sold my Marantz 7705 before getting the SDP-55 so now I am without a processor. I really wanted a processor with Dirac room correction and so I'm taking a look at the XMC-2. I realize the support for Dirac is not there yet but it is coming. Is the XMC-2 firmware stable at this point? I'm okay with a few bugs but I do not want to be rebooting the processor constantly. I do not have a dedicated HT room. The processor will be used on a daily basis watching TV, movies, and live sports. Music is much more important to me than movies. I typically listen in stereo with my Revel F228Be fronts along with my 2 Rythmik subs. I would mostly stream Tidal and Amazon when I had my Marantz 7704. The XMC-2 doesn't appear to having any streaming services built into it. How are people streaming internet music who have the XMC-2? My surrounds and surround backs are Revel W783 in walls. I sold my Revel C208 center and am looking to replace it with a Revel C426Be center channel. I have no height speakers and don't plan to get them so when I watch movies its in 7.2. I'm a bit concerned with the XMC-2 and doing room correction with my 2 subs. An alternative to the XMC-2 would be the Marantz 8805 but I'm intrigued by the XMC-2 and I'd really like to go with Dirac room correction and not Audyssey. Apologies for the rambling, just looking from some thought from current owners. Thanks.
Maybe get an older 7704/7705, refurbed Denon x6500 or Marantz 7013 to hold you over?
