I looked hard at the AV8801 but here in canuckville cheapest I could find was 3600.00 which is above my pay scale. I just got a 40% upgrade card for 200 bux so that will save me 800.00 if and when I buy one. As for Atmos , I personally am not interested in it so I am ok with that. I really hope the XMC-1 is was good as they say because I just want a basic processor without too much window dressing ,plus I like the idea of the PEQ. The UMC 200 is already works with REW and hopefully the same will happen with the XMC-1. Its not made in Canada but it is made in North America. Also it has those pretty blue lights to go with my amps.
