Emotiva cuts the cost of high performance home cinema

Renewing Emotiva’s promise to deliver serious AV performance, features and build quality at truly democratic prices, Karma-AV is delighted to offer two new Emotiva products to the UK’s home cinema builders/upgraders.

The BasX MR1 cinema receiver combines a high performance 13.2-channel immersive surround sound processor and an audiophile quality 11-channel amplifier in a single chassis. Delivering 100W RMS/channel at 8 ohms and 130W RMS/channel at 4 ohms, continuous, all channels driven, the MR1’s linear Class H power supply (featuring a massive 1,000 VA toroidal transformer), places prodigious reserves of dynamic power at the disposal of the latest Dolby Atmos and DTS:X immersive surround sound formats. Line level audio outputs support up to 13 main/surround sound channels and two subwoofers (with balanced connections).

Exceptional video quality with fast error-free switching is enabled through six HDMI inputs, all of which support HDMI 2.0b and HDCP 2.2, 4k UHD video, and HDR (including HDR10, HDR10+ and Dolby Vision). There are twin HDMI 2.0b compliant HDMI video outputs, the primary output supporting both ARC and eARC.

Audio inputs include four stereo unbalanced analogue, two S/PDIF coaxial, twin Toslink, USB audio and an integrated Bluetooth receiver with aptX.

The MR1 is supplied with a measurement microphone and the latest version of EmoQ, Emotiva’s well-regarded automatic room correction system, while control options include a full-function illuminated infrared remote control providing direct one-button selection of audio and video sources, access to the MR1 Menu System and for added convenience, real-time channel trimming on the fly.

The Emotiva BasX MC1 is the processor section of the MR1 designed for system builders with existing power amplifiers or a preference for pre/power systems. Housed in a slender (79mm) chassis it features the 13.2-channel AV processing power of the MR1, an identical input/output design, EmoQ automatic room correction (mic included) and the easy control/system configuration options offered by the MR1 receiver.
