It is RAW.
I do boost it, but it still loses SQ details, and is still down many db up high.
Undoubtedly the BA-750 would be a better for the SEOS's but at $150x3 just to get a few more Hz... that I'd still have to boost, doesn't seem practical ATM.
The BA-750 is flat to below 1kHz which WOULD be handy from a SQ perspective.
I will eventual upgrade beyond the DNA's, but until then, these Fostex's will have to do.
If they do well I might keep them for a few years, or if they do really-well I might keep them forever.
If the FT17H's suck then I won't use them... they have to provide more benefit than the hassle of implementing them is, that is my threshold.
I'm using almost 100% processor power on my 3 DCX's to make all the subs + 3 mains flat. I hate how the DCX is processor limited in this regard.
I'd rather use tweeters that don't require EQ and free up some horsepower for more bass EQ.
Ideally I'd use no EQ at all, and a 64ch digital-XO box with a -120db (or better) noisefloor, that is flat to 1-3Hz and can process Dolby Atmos; but without a $10k price tag. LOL
