Item: DEQX HDP-5 (Black Gloss) Location: Sunbury, VIC Price: $4900 Item Condition: As new in original box with standard power IEC cable, and remote control. Reason for selling: Not being used. Payment Method: EFT/Paypal (+ fees) Extra Info: The HDP-5 is DEQX's flagship preamp/processor. It's a specialised product that is best described by them: https://www.deqx.com/products/hdp-5/ It's running a relatively recent firmware that includes Roon Ready and streaming. There's likely a newer firmware now though. I remember I had Alan from DEQX here a couple of years ago and after hearing A/B corrections on some little speakers, I proclaimed "every system needs a DEQX". I still maintain that however, I'm simplifying my system and the DEQX is just not being used right now. I had the HDP-4 which I used extensively, however since I upgraded to HDP-5 I really haven't reintroduced DEQX to this system. So essentially, it's a new unit. It is packed away but presents as new. Here are some photos borrowed from @Galactic Soap in a previous listing. Pictures:
Item: DEQX HDP5 Location: Northern Beaches, Sydney, NSW Price: $4,400 (Original owner paid $6,495 for the unit for DEQX in March 2016) Item Condition: MINT Reason for selling: Dedicated acoustically treated listening room Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: This unit was originally purchased in early March 2016 (classified listing noted below) by @Tubularbells who then sold it to me for the price listed in this ad. Since taking delivery of the unit it hasn't left its box/packaging. I purchase the unit because I was looking to mitigate the inherent constraints that exist when it comes to optimising a two channel setup in a room that isn't acoustically treated, which is the case when it comes to my current listening room (read: lounge). Since I was running an Accuphase integrated & Chord DAVE I was specifically after a HDP-5, HDP-4 or Pre Mate + as I only wanted to utilise the DEQX's timing and speaker correction functionality via the digital inputs and outputs as opposed to its (apparently very good) DAC & Pre-Amp. However upon picking up the unit things have moved quicker than anticipated re: plans to knock-down and rebuild our place. We'll be demolishing in two months time, and hopefully in our new home (and me in my new listening room) by early 2018. Between now and then it will be apartment living for me which means I'm in the process of selling quite a lot of my gear as I'd rather move it on and start afresh in 2018. I won't go into too much more detail on the product, because as the saying goes: "if you're looking at this add you know what it can do.." The unit also comes with a free DEQXpert calibration session as per the original listing which can be accessed be clicking HERE Pictures:
The July 2016 meeting of the Sydney Audio Club sees us meet once again for an afternoon of fine music, great sound and amicable company. Each month the Sydney Audio Club presents an excellent high end audio system for our members and guests. Feel free to bring along your own music to test the capabilities of the system or to just share with like-minded music lovers in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. For July, we are very pleased to have a return of DEQX (http://deqx.com/). Alan Langford of DEQX will present the DEQX speaker correction and room correction system. DEQX last presented to the club at least 5-6 years ago â€“ much has changed and improved in its product line since then. So another presentation is long overdue. Details of the systemâ€¦. DEQX HDP-5 preamp processor. The HDP-5 (http://deqx.com/product-hdp5-overview.php) is the flagship of the DEQX line. It performs powerful speaker and room correction/calibration. It can do everything youâ€™ll likely ever want to do. It can accept your XLR and RCA analogue inputs. It can accept your USB, SPDIF coax and BNC, AES/EBU, Toslink digital inputs. It handles source switching and volume control. It has its own DACs and can provide analogue output on RCA and XLR. It provides digital outputs for thru, bass, mid/full and highs allowing you to handle active cross-overs inside the DEQX. Itâ€™s the ideal tool if you have your own speakers and youâ€™re looking for the ideal active cross-over. (If you donâ€™t need the active cross-over ability you can opt for the DEQX Premate+ instead â€“ it is the same as the HDP-5 minus the active cross-over.) The DEQX units also sport audiophile grade components. And they include their own microphone for taking your room measurements. Just being released now is a Roon-Ready UTP interface. There is a lot in the box for the money.

Fast, clear and clean. This is a prototype and not yet for sale. But hopefully its tantalizingly close â€“ maybe you can spur Alan on to getting it to market. Refer to: Sorry, no links as yet. Epos ES11 speakers. These speakers hail from the 1990â€™s. These older speakers open up a good opportunity to use DEQX speaker correction. Alan will demonstrate the benefits of speaker and room correction.

Weâ€™ll have two of these subwoofers such that Alan can demonstrate the bass cross-over functionality. Refer to: http://www.rythmikaudio.com/F12SE.html Oppo BDP-105D Universal player. We will use the coax digital output of the Oppo (into the DEQX) primarily for our BYO session. Refer to: https://www.oppodigital.com/blu-ray-bdp-105/blu-ray-BDP-105D-Overview.aspx and http://www.whathifi.com/oppo/bdp-105d/review. The second half of the music sessions will be our popular BYO. Members and guests are welcome to offer music to share with us all. So bring along your favourite music on CD/SACD or flash/USB drive. (Sorry, no vinyl this month.) All we ask is that the music and recordings be interesting. We'll ask you to tell us a little about the artist/recording before it is played. Tracks over 6 minutes will be faded out, to give everyone a fair go. Whether you are a novice or a seasoned veteran, you will have the opportunity to listen, learn and share your experiences with others. Feel free to come and hear the capabilities of the system, or to just share the experience with like-minded music lovers in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. Guests are always welcome â€“ we are a very friendly club so you don't need to know anyone to join us for an afternoon of fine music and sound.
