Have the UMC-1 problems been generally cleared up? The DHC's are apparently still under warranty, the 9.9 for 1 1/2 years/$1000 , the 9.8 for 6 mos/$600
Ive got a very basic setup, KR Audio 6 channel amp (solid state, not one of the monster tubes), 5.1 with no ability or desire to move to 7.1. No desire for 3D TV, 58" Panasonic Plasma.
Probably 75% TV/DVD (music) and 25% music (CD right now but inherited a turntable I might hook up and see if any of my vinyl is any good).
I need a 2d zone for the Singlepower headphone amp I posted for help with, no crying need for a 3rd zone although adding wireless powered speakers to a deck might be in the future.
