Product Description

The Emotiva MC-700 is a high performance Home Theatre Preamplifier/Processor at a ridiculously low price. It features both HD & 4K UHD HDR video, superb sound quality and a wide selection of advanced features, including Emotiva's latest generation Emo-Q automatic room correction and loudspeaker equalization system.


BasX from Emotiva is the foundation of a superb audio system. The goal of putting together an exceptional audio system is to enrich your life with outstanding sound. It’s all about playing the music. It isn’t about spending a lot of money, or solid gold knobs or jewel encrusted remote controls. And you don’t need all sorts of complicated features you’re never going to use. The key to building a great audio system is to use well-designed components with excellent technical performance and superb sound quality. Every Emotiva BasX component has been designed from the ground up to be part of an excellent audio system. They incorporate the latest cutting edge technology and all the features you need to give you the best possible listening experience.

Why is BasX so special? As a leading manufacturer of home audio equipment, Emotiva noticed that a lot of people still don’t have high-quality audio in their lives. Some folks don’t have the budget to buy good equipment, while others don’t have the time to spend trying to figure out how to use it – and that’s exactly why Emotiva developed their new BasX products. The BasX components combine great sound quality, a carefully chosen set of genuinely useful features, and rock solid performance, with a simple yet elegant design.

This unique combination allows Emotiva to offer a combination you just can’t find anywhere else – great sound and great value. All of the components in the new BasX line are priced to be within reach of every music lover. You don’t need to be rich to afford them, and you don’t need to be an engineer to figure out how to use them. They’re carefully crafted to give you many years of reliable and trouble-free service, and they’ll look great in your living room or on your audio rack.

You can build a complete music system out of the BasX components that will give you a true audiophile listening experience. Or try adding one or two BasX components to round out your existing audio system. Great sounding audio doesn’t have to be expensive or complicated.

BasX Features & Simplicity: BasX MC-700 is a high-performance surround sound processor that supports 4K UHD HDR video and all the current 5.1 and 7.1 channel surround sound formats. The MC-700 includes six 4k HDMI video inputs, including three that support 4k UHD HDR video – with HDMI 2.0 and HDCP 2.2, as well as multiple analogue and digital audio inputs for your other audio sources. The MC-700 can be operated via the simple front panel controls, or by the included infrared remote control, and the intuitive menu system makes it simple to configure and operate using either the large bright blue VFD display on the front panel or the clear, concise on-screen display.

BasX Performance: BasX MC-700 is the perfect choice if you’re searching for a way to upgrade the performance of a receiver-based home theatre system. It also provides the perfect path to enter the world of high performance, yet affordable component level home theatre. The MC-700 delivers fast clean switching for both HD and 4k UHD HDR video, superb sound quality, and a wide selection of advanced features, including Emotiva's latest generation Emo-Q automatic room correction and loudspeaker equalization system. Paired with a good power amp, like the BasX A-500 or BasX A-700, a subwoofer, and matching speakers, the MC-700 will deliver the sort of sound quality and control you never thought possible at anywhere near its modest price.

BasX Bluetooth Connectivity: Along with 4k HDMI HDR video, the BasX MC-700 comes standard with a variety of analogue and digital audio input options. In addition to that, if you want to play music from a smart phone or other Bluetooth-enabled wireless device through the MC-700, Emotiva offer an optional Bluetooth receiver module. This module plugs directly into the back of the MC-700, and supports the latest Bluetooth CD quality AptX audio standard.

BasX Quality: The BasX MC-700 not only sounds great, but has been built to last, with a heavy-duty steel chassis, solid milled aluminum faceplate, and high-quality parts and construction. We expect you to enjoy your BasX MC-700 for a long time – and we back that up with a full three-year warranty.
