And its 5 plus the 2 shelf filters. But as others have said, depends what the OP room needs and how far they want to go.Yes it is. What you show is a fixed 5 band GEQ.
I think you need to find articles on using parametric eq. Simply put, for each of the bands you tell the device what frequency to vary, by how much and what gradient the curve is around that freq (how steep or broad the "hill" is around the freq)
The FPGA’s extraordinary capability enables a number of key sonic benefits, including significantly improved timing and the best noise-shaper performance of any known DAC. DAVE’s technology delivers music with unmatched reality and musicality, with an unrivalled timing response.
They claim it has sonic benefits, unmatched musicality and realism.
Haha sorry, but I'm not really interested in debating who says what and why. Let's get back on topicWhat do you believe is concrete or specific about claiming ‘sonic benefits’, ‘unmatched musicality’ or ‘realism’? I posit that these claims are in absolutely meaningless. Do you disagree? If so, I’d be genuinely interested as to why.
If you want more EQ options, check out the Motu interfaces that can run as standalone units. The ultra lite MK4 is quite powerful, and within budget.
Edit: also the Motu only has a limited number of EQ’s available it seems is otherwise much more powerful though.
Fair enough, I’m certainly not debating it or questioning your right to discuss any of thisI’m merely pointing out that chord haven’t actually made a claim that their dac sounds better than anyone else’s, but the fact that you feel that there may be some reason based on science and engineering to look more deeply at the fully resolved question if whether a dac can in reality be measured accurately demonstrates that they certain left you feeling that there is something in what they are saying I’m not sure what should damage Rob Watts reputation as an engineer more, a sincerely held belief in magic, or an insincerely stated one to sell dacs.Haha sorry, but I'm not really interested in debating who says what and why. Let's get back on topic
How much maths have you studied?Ok, that's what I thought. How does taps differ from resolution? And can you point me in some direction to where I can find info about taps and what number is considered to be audible or not?
Right. To that I can only ask, "how come". Is the premise of Chord's scaler, besides insanely overkill, also a marketing lie? Or is what Stereophile measured basically the target they intended...?It should also be noted that in the M-scaler tests published by Stereophile, it doesn't come anywhere close even to the second filter shown above, so all those taps are essentially wasted.
The big issue is that my room has extreme bass dips in frequency at my listening position. It might help, at least Moore than my qutest.
It would be nice, but getting 4 subs and keeping my DAC, don't think I can afford that. My budget is already brokenWouldn’t it be much cheaper to just get 4 subwoofers? 2 below the ceiling 2 on the floor in the middle of each wall instead of fixing the dip for just one person?
