XMC-1 Enhancements

The XMC-1 is fully modular - which means that, as home theater continues to evolve, and new technologies and features become available, we will be continuing to offer enhancements that add new functionality to your XMC-1.

At this time, we are pleased to announce the first set of enhancements which we will be offering for the XMC-1:

XMC-1 Technology Enhancement 1: HDMI 2.0 and HDCP 2.2 (V2)


XMC-1 Technology Enhancement 2: HDMI 2.0b and HDCP 2.2 (V3)

Replacement HDMI board (V3) upgrades ALL HDMI inputs and outputs on the XMC-1 to HDMI 2.0b with HDCP 2.2; including full support for HDR10 and Dynamic HDR.

  • Hardware - replaces original XMC-1 HDMI board or HDMI (V2) board.
  • Will be included standard on all units shipped after the board is available.
  • Supports HDMI 2.0b, with HDCP 2.2, and the full 18 Gbps data rate on all ports.
  • Supports standard 4k UHD video, HDR10, and Dynamic HDR on all ports.
  • Installed by Emotiva (at no cost - recommended)
  • Available late summer 2017.
  • Available as an upgrade to current XMC-1 owners for $499 (including shipping).

SPECIAL NOTE: The original HDMI (V2) enhancement upgrade was provided at no cost to XMC-1 owners who had purchased their XMC-1 from us at the full $2499 retail price. Many chose to take advantage of this offer, but some chose to wait. We are pleased to be able to offer the current new HDMI (V3) enhancement upgrade AT NO COST TO OWNERS OF AN ORIGINAL XMC-1 WITH HDMI 1.4b, WHO PURCHASED THEIR XMC-1 FROM US AT THE FULL $2499 RETAIL PRICE, AND DID NOT TAKE ADVANTAGE OF ANY PREVIOUS HDMI (V2) UPGRADE OFFER.



XMC-1 Technology Enhancement 3: Dolby Atmos and DTS-X

Replacement processor/decoder board adds support for Dolby Atmos and DTS-X

  • Adds support for Dolby Atmos (up to 7.2.4) and DTS-x.
  • Hardware - replaces original digital processor decoder board.
  • Repurposes Mix Outputs and Zone 2 Analog Outputs
    (after the upgrade Zone 2 will be available via digital outputs).
  • Installed by Emotiva (at no cost – factory installation REQUIRED).
  • Available late summer 2017.
  • Available as an upgrade to any XMC-1 without Atmos & DTS-X for $599
    (including shipping).
  • The Dolby Atmos & DTS-X upgrade REQUIRES the latest (V3) HDMI board
    (any XMC-1 with a (V1) or (V2) HDMI board must be upgraded to the (V3) board).

SPECIAL NOTE: The Atmos and DTS-X enhancement is considered to be an OPTIONAL upgrade for the XMC-1. Once the enhancement upgrade is available, the XMC-1 will be available in two versions - with or without the enhancement upgrade. The retail price of the XMC-1 WITHOUT Dolby Atmos and DTS-X will be $2499; the retail price of the XMC-1 WITH the Dolby Atmos and DTS-X enhancement factory installed and tested will be $2999.

SPECIAL OFFER: Because shipping is included in the cost of each enhancement upgrade, if you choose to purchase both at the same time, a discount of $100 will be applied – so the total price for both, if purchased at the same time, will be $998 – including shipping.
