I was told by Emotiva staff they were going to be on the heels of the XMC and RMC releases so hopefully soon, also I remeber them going to have either an Auto on feature or a wired trigger connection.
They will have a standby mode. The initial pictures of the monitors had shown them with red LEDs, which is what one sees when it is in standby. I don't recall if anything was said about a trigger, though.
I've not heard anything. It's been pretty much nothing but news about the RMC/XMC line for a long time and not much else.

It would be cool to redo the powered monitor. Use the same ASC300 as used in the PA-1, (2X per speaker) cross it over about 350hz and have a mid / tweeter with conventional crossover.
Some additional functions to 'tailor' the sound....high cut / boost? LF cut / boost? Maybe a pluggable port?

Yeah a killer desk rig with a pair of PA-1s, Emotiva Subwoofer and your favorite desk speaker you pick and source and Preamplifier. Those PA-1s are my new favorite product of Emotiva along with the T2. RMC-1 of course is King. But so much cool around for all. I am curious too about the next chapter of the Airmotiv Powered Monitors saga.
You can't be brave to succeed unless you are not afraid to fail.
