I was in the market to upgrade my very nice Rotel 5 ch system. During my search I came across a couple reviews that praised Emo products especially their amps. So, for our 27th anniversary my wife encouraged me to get what I wanted. Our system is a 7.1 ch consisting of (2) xpa-1, upa-1, (2) upa-2, along with the umc-1 & erc-1. The speakers are Paradigm Studio 100's and a SVS-PB13+sub. What an amazing sound system! Powerful, clean, dynamic, musical, etc. I went to a local theater a few weeks back. The screen was obviously larger, however, the sound did not compare to my new home theater featuring EMOTIVA!
;D Recently added a second sub, svs pb12+, to fantastic Emo electronics...now a 7.2. These anniversary gifts/approvals from wife are much better than shirts & neckties. Not sure what's next, maybe an ERC-2?
