From Emotiva
Emotiva Audio Corporation, the company that continually proves high-end audio doesn't have be high-priced, is reinforcing that point with the delivery of their new BasX MC-700 surround sound processor.

The MC-700 (SRP: $599), which will be a highlight of Emotiva's CES display, is making its debut prior to the show due to increasing demand for a BasX surround sound processor that supports 4K UHD HDR video, and all current 5.1- and 7.1-channel surround sound audio formats, at a far more affordable price than competing models.

"We call BasX our 'aspirational line,' but a powerhouse processor like the MC-700 crushes competitive models at similar price points," said Emotiva's President and Founder, Dan Laufman. "The combination of 4K UHD High Dynamic Range (HDR) video, high resolution surround sound audio, and the latest generation of our highly acclaimed EmoQ automatic room correction system, makes the MC-700 the best choice for anybody who wants to take their home theater experience to another level, but without paying the high prices of typical audiophile gear."

In addition to its six HDMI inputs, including three that support 4K UHD HDR video, the MC-700 offers two analog audio inputs and three digital audio inputs, including Bluetooth, to accommodate all currently available audio sources. The MC-700 also features flexible bass management, a high-quality built-in headphone amplifier, fully configurable manual parametric equalizers, and a full function IR remote control.

Emotiva's engineers designed the MC-700 to be easy to operate. The MC-700 can be operated directly from a few simple front-panel controls, or the included IR remote control, and an intuitive menu system guides users through the entire process on the bright blue VFD front-panel display and clear concise onscreen menu.
