Atmos processor with decent analog section?

Recommended Posts

Ok, I got confused.  Suggest editing your topic title to take out atmos.

Please note that 4K video support is only pass through and is the same capability on current AVRs/prepro.

What about a used receiver like these which have just been superseded ?

https://au.yamaha.com/en/products/audio_visual/av_receivers_amps/rx-v2083/index.html

they have quite a few Atmos receivers, but ofcourse there are other brands which could offer similar features.

and they do have amps on board saving the need for extra amplification purchases if you haven’t got them already.

The emotiva mc 700 is available at apollo hifi in sydney at apollo hifi for $1050.
Its 4k prepro without atmos.
 

The mc700 had some teething problems early on because it uses a hybrid 4k/2k hdmi pcb board solution@anewmission . Make sure you can return it if you plug in a combination of 4k and 2k sources and check the switching between them :) HDCP switching should be fine if you just feed it 4k sources ; gotta love hdmi ..

 

Otherwise its got its advantages over an avr ;  you get to keep your power amps when you upgrade . I had its predecessor UMC200 and was very happy with it ; heres a review

I just searched a youtube video of emotiva at ces feom earlier this year. The product rep said they are releasing another 3 processors based on their new atmos dsp this year. Ranging from 1000usd to 5000usd. So maybe i should just wait. Im guessing there will be a basx model. Here is the link.

That product rep is Dan Laufman ; he owns the company :whistle:  He has his plate full with the RMC1 ; then comes the XMC1 atmos board ; etc . It will be many many months before any 1k pre pro turns up ; named products like the RMC2 and the XMR1 avr  top of the line will be 1st ..

If you can find a reliable NAD and upgrade with an am230 card and vm card for uhd sources you can do it in stages . But make sure you have a reliable version ; some were quite flaky before the current 758v3 etc :)

If its a reliable one . Good its a masters series . You would need a vm module as well if you want to pass UHD sources . You would need the AM17 card ;the AM230 dirac card is incompatible . Some circuitry is incompatible with earlier models so

Please confirm with your dealer/distributor for all upgrades before purchasing.
