I've read that, but has anyone posted a comparison yet? I have a DMC-1 and I'm very curious to see what other DMC-1 owners think of the UMC. Perhaps, I'll have to order one to find out.
That is what the 30-day Evaluation period is for. You need to hear it in your own home with your gear to know if YOU think the UMC-1 sounds better than your current processor (DMC). Nobody knows how it will sound in your listening room; at best, they can only tell you how is sounds with their gear in their listening room... which may not sound the same as in your room.
