Process up to 16-channels of the highest quality home cinema sound, with the Emotiva RMC-1.

Designed to grow with you
For ultimate flexibility, the RMC-1 is Emotiva’s most flexible and configurable AV processor. In addition to the already impressive standard spec, the RMC-1 features three hardware accessory bays. These handle everything from an optional MM/MC phonostage to extra (12) output channels – taking the total number of outputs to a mind-boggling 28.

Processing for up to 16 channels
With 16 output channels, the RMC-1 has the processing power for the most sophisticated home cinema systems. Add suitable power amps and you’ll be able to decode Dolby Atmos and DTS:X signals, right up to Dolby Atmos 9.1.6 – enough for the largest home cinemas. For best results, pair with the Emotiva XPA Gen3 power amps.

Top quality sound
The RMC-1 is designed to deliver reference quality sound – in stereo or multi-channel. The fully balanced Reference Stereo path combines with the Reference Stereo Mode to make this an impressive choice for stereo sound. Audiophile grade, AKM4490 Verita DACs (Digital to Analogue Convertors) operate in fully balanced mode on all 16-output channels, making this equally impressive in home cinema mode.

Balanced XLR outputs
For the highest quality signal transfer, the RMC-1 uses 16 XLR outputs. More usually found in studios, XLR balanced sockets offer excellent noise resistance and a ‘locked in’ connection for the lowest distortion and most secure connection.

Selectable operating mode
Five selectable modes give you the best balance between sound quality and control. Stereo Mode and Surround Mode use dedicated bass management and room correction settings for optimised sound. Direct Mode reduces the processing to a minimum but retains bass management. Reference Stereo Mode is the purest stereo mode with no bass management used.

Dirac Live, for the very best sound in your room
For the very best sound in your room, RMC-1 includes powerful room correcting technology from Dirac Research. This uses a microphone and dedicated software to take multiple readings around your room and feed the information back to the amplifier for a completely bespoke response (professional set-up recommended).

Enjoy fully-immersive sound, with Dolby Atmos and DTS:X
Bringing the cinema home, Dolby Atmos and DTS:X decoders provide truly immersive sound through ceiling or up-firing speakers. The RMC-1 offers both systems, delivering Dolby Atmos up to 9.1.6 and DTS:X up to 7.1.4.

Wide-ranging connectivity
Featuring eight HDMI inputs and two outputs, the RMC-1 handles the most complex AV systems. The HDMI2.0b sockets are compatible with HDCP2.2, making it suitable for use with the latest TVs and 4K HDR and Dolby Vision sources. Nine digital and 3+1 analogue inputs are ample for a wide range of audio components – such as CD, streamer and pre-amp equipped turntable. There are also optical digital and analogue outputs – ideal for recording or looping sound through the processor.

Create a true cinema at home, with the Emotiva RMC-1.
