Entry level pre/pro New UMC-1 or used DHC 9.9 or DHC 9.8 (or other suggestions)

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.

It is not only the bugs in

It is not only the bugs in the Emotiva that would bias me towards the Integras but its lame roomEQ that is not in a class with the Audyssey in the Integras.  There ain't much to choose between the 9.8 and 9.9 except for Audyssey DynamicEQ which some find useful for TV/movies.  For music, imho, either works fine.

I am, however, kinda skeptical about those warrantees.  Who covers them?
