Emotiva Audio Corporation will make its CEDIA Expo debut in September, with a live demo that features several of its most recent product introductions, in addition to the first public demo of the highly anticipated 16-channel RMC-1 A/V processor.

The RMC-1 (SRP: $4,999) is a no-holds-barred 16-channel processor that supports full 4K UHD video, with high speed video switching, in addition to the latest Dolby Atmos and DTS-X object-oriented surround sound formats.

"A significant number of our dealer friends on the front line are entrenched in the custom channel, and an increasing number are specifying Emotiva for installations that call for a true high-performance sonic solution," said Dan Laufman, President and Founder, Emotiva Audio Corp. "It's what makes Emotiva a favorite among installers who need audio equipment that sounds great and is reasonably priced."

The centerpiece of Emotiva's demo room will be a 7.4.4 demo, featuring the best-in-class RMC-1 A/V processor, with 16 fully balanced channels, including an all-analog preamplifier section, precision 32-bit AD/DA conversion, and an advanced 4K UHD video management system. Eight HDMI inputs and dual HDMI outputs support 2.0b and HDCP 2.2, ensuring theater-like video quality from all 4K UHD HDR10 sources and equipment.

Sonically, the RMC-1 features a full 16 channels of Dolby Atmos and DTS:X surround sound (7.3.6 channels), with a decoded audio signal for each channel that is processed by a separate high performance AKM Verita 32-bit DAC, operated in precision balanced mono mode. Support is provided for native audio decoding of single- and double-rate DSD digital audio signals, accepted from either HDMI or USB sources. (Auro 3D is supported with an optional license.)

Another Emotiva component making its debut in a live demo is the BasX A-5175 five-channel power amplifier (SRP: $799), which brings the best of the company's design prowess to its BasX series of audiophile-grade electronics and loudspeakers. Highlights of the new model include a heavy duty linear power supply, high-current short signal path Class A/B amplifier modules, and industry standard unbalanced audio inputs.
