Page 1 Page 2 In my ten-plus years of writing reviews no brand, ever, has been more polarizing than Emotiva. You either love the brand or you hate it. Those that love Emotiva and the products the company makes are willing to defend their honor in ways that would make an Apple fanboy blush, whereas those who abhor Emotiva simply dismiss the products as cheap Chinese-manufactured junk. Rest assured, I had no preconceived notions nor ill feelings going into this review - I just wanted to see what all the excitement, good and bad, was about.

Calibrated measurement microphone included. Microphone input 3. Emotiva is betting you can. For connectivity to an amplifier, the UMC-1 has unbalanced 7. As far as inside the box.. The on-screen display is full color and will overlay overtop of video via HDMI.
Bass management is pretty sophisticated, and you can set different crossover points and slopes for each speaker group the main channels, center, surrounds. In terms of audio, the system is equally flexible and we liked how you could customize how it treated each signal type.
Remote Control The remote is totally audiophile Lets face it, Emotiva hates everyone who it gives this remote to.
They hate you. Why else would they go all the way back to to engineer a remote? The only thing we really liked about it was the trim controls and tuner section.
Having to grab a screwdriver to replace the two non-standard "N" batteries? Not so much This is a very compelling buy from a company that has been producing value-priced products that consistently outperform their higher-priced counterparts. You owe it to yourself to at least check out the UMC-1, especially since they offer a day money back guarantee.
The FFT plot was very clean 6. Max unclipped output for the main channels was 5. Again these are excellent figures. With all channels acting as the noise source or disturber driven via the HDMI input, I measured each idle channel one at a time to determine the worst case channel to channel crosstalk via the analog outputs. We rechecked the results via the analog inputs and the UMC-1 produced similarly good results.
