I'm not close to any review. In fact, it took the weekend to get the control down on my iRule and RTI systems.. As you know, I am transitioning out of RTI to iRule. Just picked up an iPad yesterday to do the duty.
I hope to get it into the rack tonight and get it going later in the week. I am going to initially run it with my QSC DSPs in place until after CEDIA. Before I get an audio calibrator to do the audio, I want to see what the story is with the new TEQ-8 DSP at CEDIA as I may go right to that and skip the PEQ. We'll see...
However, I ran my Halcro with the QSC DSPs in place and it was the best sonic experience I've had in any theater. The QSCs are very clear. I will get a good indication of the ADA sound with them in place and things will likely improve once all EQ is done internally (be it PEQ or TEQ) once I decide the route to go.
For now, I can say the unit is esthetically gorgeous, the fans are quite quiet, and the programming software is as extensive as I have ever seen. Anything is possible. There are over 300 RS-232 commands for the most precise macros and control. Unlike the Halcro, the RS-232 commands are lightning fast to execute. You can save the set up configuration to a computer file so as to save your set up which is always nice in case of a wipe out of the memory. Also, you can change speaker crossovers and EQ on a PER INPUT basis. The flexibility is remarkable. You can set limits on a per input basis of EQ, bass output, max volume, anything.
The lan port works for feedback while programming.
I can't say enough for the ergonomics and sophisticated programming that is possible. This is a modern SSP unlike anything else that is out there.
It has to sound good, and that is the big question at this point. Stay tuned...
