Really? I wasn't aware that

Really? I wasn't aware that product had been released, I thought it was still under development.

You are right!

Not released yet. I guess they want to get it right after the debacle with the UMC-1 and Parasound, Outlaw, Integra and Anthem having issues releasing unstable or not releasing announced preprocessors.

Tantalizing but, afaik, it

Tantalizing but, afaik, it has not yet been released nor is Emotiva's track record with the predecessor UMC-1 encouraging.  Still, there's no competition for it at that price range, if they can pull it off.
