The new AV processor offers advanced immersive audio support.
Emotiva has announced plans to demo its upcoming RMC-1 AV Processor at CEDIA 2017. The show will be held in San Diego from September 5-9.
"The RMC-1 is, quite simply, the ultimate expression of our design expertise," said Dan Laufman, President and Founder, Emotiva Audio Corp. "From the outset, this project was a mission to build the best AV processor in our company’s history. Of course, we're talking about Emotiva, so the price is drastically lower than what you would expect for such an extraordinary product."
The RMC-1 is a 16 channel AV Processor with an all-analog preamplifier section and precision 32-bit AD/DA conversion. Likewise, the unit includes an advanced 4K UHD video management system with eight HDMI inputs and dual HDMI outputs supporting 2.0b with HDCP 2.2 for 4K UHD HDR10 sources and equipment. In addition, the device is capable of supporting 7.3.6 Dolby Atmos or DTS:X immersive audio systems with a decoded audio signal for each channel that is processed by a separate high performance AKM Verita 32-bit DAC. At CEDIA, the company plans to demonstrate the processor as part of a 7.4.4 speaker setup.
Other features also include the Dirac Live 13.3 automatic room correction system, native audio decoding of single- and double-rate DSD digital audio signals through HDMI or USB sources, a Reference Stereo mode for 2 channel playback, 11-band parametric equalization on every channel, a 64 x 256 front panel OLED display, and support for Auro 3D via an optional license.
The RMC-1 is set to carry an MSRP of $4,999.
