    Right now, I don't think the XMC-1 supports Atmos. I found this on the product page: https://emotiva.com/products/xmc-1

    The Path To The Future

    Home theater technology has made rapid strides since the XMC-1 was first introduced, and the technology in the XMC-1 has advanced apace. We've just released the first major hardware upgrade for the XMC-1, which added support for HDMI 2.0b video, including all the latest 4k UHD formats like HDR and Dolby Vision. All future XMC-1 units will include these capabilities, and the upgrade will be available for every XMC-1 we've ever sold. The next major upgrade we have scheduled will add support for Dolby Atmos and DTS-X - the newest object-oriented surround sound formats.

    i dont understand the xmc is 7.1
    but with the upgrade you can do atmos and dts x
    i am a bit confused does that mean it can do more channels than 7.1

    You mentioned wanting Dolby Atmos. As it stands right now, the XMC-1 cannot decode Dolby Atmos. If you read what I posted, Emotiva says that Atmos is a planned upgrade but they do not give a timeline as to when this additional upgrade will be available for the XMC-1.

    Having 7 channels or even height channels is not the same as Dolby Atmos. If you want Dolby Atmos I would either wait until Emotiva releases the XMC-1 with Dolby Atmos decoding included, or choose another pre/pro.

    Here's a link to the Dolby site that deals with Dolby Atmos. Maybe it can explain the difference in it and simple height channels. https://www.dolby.com/us/en/brands/dolby-atmos.html
