      16 CHANNEL 9.1.6 DISCRETE DOLBY ATMOS & DTS:X CINEMA PROCESSOR

      The Emotiva XMC-2 is a state-of-the-art surround sound processor – designed from the ground up to serve as the nerve centre of a modern home theater or surround sound music system. The bit-perfect video switches in the XMC-2 ensure that you’ll get the best possible image quality from the latest HDR and Dolby Vision 4k UHD discs, and the advanced audio decoding engine, audio processing hardware, and room correction options guarantee you true audiophile sound quality and performance. Unlike other surround sound processors, the XMC-2 is not only a superb home theater processor, but also a true audiophile stereo component. When we set out to design the XMC-2 we had some relatively lofty goals. We wanted to design a processor that would support the latest Dolby Atmos and DTS:X object oriented surround sound formats, with plenty of channels to fulfill the needs of our most demanding customers, and sound quality and performance equal to or better than the best stereo equipment currently on the market. And, along with that, it had to deliver superb bit-perfect picture quality, and support the latest HDR and Dolby Vision 4k UHD video content. And, finally, it had to be relatively simple to configure and operate, so that our customers would actually be able to take full advantage of its advanced performance and capabilities.

      Designing a surround sound processor that includes all of the features you need in a modern home theater system, while still delivering superb sound quality, is a truly formidable undertaking. Most AV receivers and pre/pros offer plenty of features, but include serious compromises in sound quality. And most audio gear that offers true audiophile sound quality is limited to stereo, and offers very few features. Our plans called for a platform that could deliver both.

      To make all this possible, we started by developing a whole new hardware platform, which combines powerful new cutting-edge processor technology with painstaking analog circuit design to deliver the best possible audio performance. Running on this hardware platform, our proprietary operating system powers the menu system and all of the advanced control logic. This new platform was first introduced to the public in our highly successful XMC-1. The XMC-2 takes this technological innovation to the next level, with the latest 4k HDR and Dolby Vision UHD video switching capabilities, improved audio decoding and processing, the latest digital to analog conversion hardware, more channels to fully support the latest object oriented surround sound formats, and even more room for future expansion and upgrades. The XMC-2, the ultimate expression of our new design philosophy, is finally ready to be unveiled.

      The XMC-1 eliminated many of the compromises and expanded the boundaries around what was possible for home theater and surround sound. The XMC-2 takes it to the next level… and is the perfect way to start building a truly state of the art home theatre, surround sound, and audiophile stereo music system.
