While I said they were first with Trinnov (and incorrect) I believe their HT Pre if it has a smooth launch will be a game changer. What may happen is some other offerings from Onkyo/Integra/Marantz etc may come down in price and force a new price point for that type of Pre-Pro.
So that would be more succinct for me to say. That is what I would consider a game changer. If it doesn't than that simply means Emotiva has a market pretty much to themselves.
I think the Marantz 7701 comes closest but does it feature XT32 and SubEQ?
