I have a Sunfire UR which can do 5.1 or 6.1 and will add the Side Axis. I have tried an AVM-20 (AVM-60 in queue), an Outlaw 975, Denon X3100, Onkyo PR-SC5530. The quest continues. 
 
Does anyone have opinions/experiences with an Emotiva XMC-1?

The Onkyo went back to Crutchfield. Emotiva XMC-1 (HDMI 1.4B - upgradeable to HDMI2/HDCP) next.

Forget the Emotiva.

Get a Marantz or Denon.

I'm fairly happy with my Denon 4100 AVR, but if I could have afforded the Marantz 7702 I woulda got it..

The Marantz 7702mkII is being replaced by a Very similar unit that looks like only adds their wireless music system. They have slashed the price!

The MkII is 1200, the 7703 is 2200. I will try the MkII last, will save me some shipping contortions, if I decide to keep it.

Save some cash... Accessories4Less has both for under 1k shipped with a manufacture warranty (once they get back in stock that is).  

Yes, they are refurbs, but who cares at those prices...
