    Great story. My bet is VR55 as it has tweeter adjustment.

    Well I was right about my guess, the Pipedreams went because of the lack of TacT. This should be considered a major victory by all those who advocate DRC, and should be seen as an opportunity to try it out by those who are against it.

    Adjustability of frequency response is desirable for Marty. While it is given with your Vandersteen speakers, it is not with Magico and Rockport.

    I second that question. . From all reports, it worked extremely well in Marty's system.

    Time to bump some thread on DSP/DRC

    I guess he wants pure analogue sound. No ADC.

    The tact broke. It was a modded tact and could not be fixed

    Surely other DSP engines around , would be simpler than swapping speakers .
