I think there's room in the segment, but not sure about another me too product. I like what Shiit has done by allowing you to buy piece by piece and build a system, but that's for 2 channel and headphones. However miniDSP has their dirac unit which is nice and I can see something more modular with smaller units then these big ass AVR's and processors that are replaced year after year. Of course Emovtiva has their modular RMC-1, but I worry about installing the modules and future flexibility, plus the initial outlay is fairly large.

I think something like this would need to be software based OS with an ARM processor and DSP chips or something, but this is me just fantasizing.
