As if DSP is not bad enough, bring in the junk pc power supply and all the circuit board interferences into the Audio.

The only reason this product exists, like most the products in this business, is an opportunity to make $$ from the gullible.

Thanks brombo, looks very interesting.

Nothing wrong with really good DSP crossovers sound with modern DACs as far as I can tell listening to it with very good classical recordings.

It'd much more interesting if it worked with multiple two-channel DACs instead of requiring a multi-channel DAC...

My bad. Couple of programmers with free time.

Let me tell you a story.

In 1980s and early 1990s, there was a huge demand for engineering graduates with MS in computer science in IT field. The rational is, 4 years of engineering trained the person in analytical and problem solving skills. That was the era of mostly low-level programming languages, c being the most popular. The programmer is often required to write the algorithms in a resource efficient way. Starting late 1990s started changing the paradigm with the advent of Java. Java is a high level language. It came with Automated optimizations and classes for most if the algorithms. Over the next few years things changed. Now, a programmer need not know anything how computers function or write algorithms. All he/she has to do is learn how to use the pre-written classes. This is definitely a product of the later class of programmers. OTOH, REW, ARTA, HornResp are examples of real programming and products with a purpose.
