  1. I'm curious, what is the typical operating temperature of the CPU etc in this case?
  2. How to configure multichannel, for a multichannel device: https://help.roonlabs.com/portal/en/kb/articles/multichannel
  3. Some more info; Via Convolution you need to create the EQ filters in Audiolense, or rephase or similar. =: https://help.roonlabs.com/portal/en/kb/articles/dsp-engine-convolution Procedural Implementation: https://community.roonlabs.com/t/procedural-eq-mix-not-working-active-speakers/25558/2 It seems you need to ensure the channel layout is 7.1? in the player device settings, obviously this is an older Roon interface: Room 1.8: Procedural EQ has a mix function: It seems you can then apply Eq to the correct channels.
  4. Ok, so you need to create a convolution filter? This handles both the routing and filters. Is this your understanding? That means calculation of filters using either using REW, Rephase, Audiolense etc? Do you know if procedural EQ can be used with the Okto Dac8 pro, using a 3/4 way setup? I know this would work with a Pro Interface which provides routing control.
  5. I was wondering if there were any SNA members using Roon as a source (PC USB), running active DIY speakers using a multichannel USB dac OR USB interface to handle software based crossovers. For my application I am considering using either a pro USB interface (Focusrite -Scarlett / Clarett) which allows for an excellent range of connectivity and routing, or a multi channel USB DAC (Okto Dac8 pro) to create a flexible 3/4 way active speaker solution. Obviously each solution has its pros and cons. Signal chain would be, something like this: Roon PC/Endpoint(USB)>Multiw
  6. I purchased a Pi2Aes and love it. Its a noticeable step up over my laptop, or RPI USB output. I power the RPI board via an ifi power x 5vdc SMPS, and the Pi2aes hat is powered by a Meanwell 24vdc SMPS. It sounds more "real", transparent, dynamic V's a standard Nuc//laptop/PC/RPI source. It murders the Cambridge CXNv2. It demonstrates the a clear detail/clarity advantage over the RPI usb output into a transparent system. A true bargain for $150usd. I suspect you would need to spend many thousands, $3000+ to get something better.
  7. The first of the Isotek line to offer braided shielding. I have one connecting my amp. No complaints.
  8. Seems like a great price for a beautiful integrated. Pure class A that doubles output into 4 ohms.
  9. The build quality is amazing. I thought this was DIY. lol. Anthony does nice work.
  10. I sent you a link to the included software. Cheers Steve
  11. I have the software, so I can see what it does. Its basic, similar to the DBX. I'm not endorsing the unit, as I haven't heard it yet.
  12. which one? I have the software if you are interested in the second link....
  13. Yes, I suspect its identical. After conversing with the owner of the store, I believe Green Audio produce these units for DBX. My circumstance is different to most, I have access to wholesale buys on most pro sound (and some Hifi) gear, so I would probably just buy locally for warranty. But the saving is decent, and provokes thought. Reading online, a few Venue users have reported reliability issues. So that needs to be considered. So much of what we buy, is made or rebadge Chinese product. I suspect this item would be perfectly fine.
  14. That's perfect for a 3way active build. How old do you suspect this would be? Seems to be similar to this old add:
  15. Interesting comparison. It doesn't surprise me the Holton performs more favourably than the NC122MP. The MP modules are a definite step down from say the Hypex NC400 or even Purifi 1ET400a amplifiers which would be 'more' comparable in price to the Holton kit. Ready made, no DIY: https://holtonprecisionaudio.com/collections/class-ab-power-amplifiers/products/holton-one-zero-one-power-amplifier
  16. Seems to be the same device, without the DBX price markup. https://www.alibaba.com/product-detail/GAX-360-Complete-Loudspeaker-Management-System_62541991411.html?spm=a2700.galleryofferlist.normal_offer.d_title.77d332f0rlsV5j&bypass=true
  17. Dirac will be the easier solution. But if your willing to learn Roon PEQ could also be easy, (the challenge is knowing what to correct for) the next step would be convolution filters FIR/IIR. maybe start here.... https://community.roonlabs.com/t/a-guide-how-to-do-room-correction-and-use-it-in-roon/23800
  18. This would suit your needs and definitely simplify things. https://www.minidsp.com/dirac-series/ddrc-22d But Roon is free if you already have it. I know there are a few guides detailing how to do room correction in REW/Roon. You could also use simple Roon PEQ to correct response. works well and is easy to implement. Do you have a measurement microphone?
  19. Do you use Roon? You could implement room correction using REW to measure and Roon to implement. There are two digital minidsp units for sale atm. If you are a DSP novice, Dirac would be easy to start with.
