Have any of you used your RS20i to time align multi driver speaker enclosures? If so I would appreciate hearing your comments. One thing that concerns me is if the RS20i time delay incremental adjustments are fine enough. The Rane units allow for adjustments to hundredths of a millisecond.

Thanks and best regards,

I had Carl Huff help me align the multiple drivers in my system. Dirac live did a great job of EQing them as well.

Couldn't pour water out of a boot with instructions on the heel.

Do you know what Nemesis means?

Mike Schurzak (to be corrected) from Datasat visited Prometheus to discuss auro and yes atmos upgrade path for that room. YOUTUBE Post 2 here shows how the datasat adapts to the different speaker configurations while communicating the correct edid to the blu ray player.

I didn't wanted to post Datasat vs. Storm Audio because both brands ooze quality and rock in .

However a comparison between thse 2 sets would be something useful.

Datasat has a storng Processor, the RS20i with the lateast (and the oldest) decoding we can ever demand, and besides it has empty slots for the future. In terms of Amps, their amps are Class A circuit.

Storm Audio has also an amazing processor with lots of decoding (not so much for the old ones we need once a while) and in terms of Amps they went to Class D.

Well Datasat Amps are rated like 300 watts per channel, and the Storm Audio provided us a strong 350 watt per channel.

Question is:

- How does Class A vs. Class D compares in terms of performance?
- Is this the technology of the future or Class A will continue to rule?

P.S: Athem Statement Line of Amplifiers are truly remarkable also and i don't know in terms of directly comparisson if they are even superior to Datasat RA7300

I think from a company size, pedigree, ongoing support, and product viability the datasat will outsell storm 2-1, the company is largfer and has a huge client base, their software upgrade record is best in inbdustry. The current vs future offerings Storm appears to have zero advantages, class a sound is rich and warm class d does not offer velvetty upper range like class a.

I also share that opinion right now.

To make Auro 3D there is the need for a ceiling speaker, so te best is to combine for example a Datasat RA7300 with a RA2400 right?

Or for example an ATI Signature Amplifier, guess the quality should be the same with their Signature Line.

I think Datasat amps are class AB but I could be wrong.

As I know Datasat Power Amplifier RA-7300 & RA-2400 are the same units of ATI AT-6000 Signature Series , only few things differ from original designed . The ATI AT-6000 Signature series suppose to be Class AB designed same as AT-3000 Series . Actually we can't say which designed Class , A ,AB ,A/AB or D will made sound better , it depend on and varies from one to the another brand .

I actually think the Datasat units are a little different to the ATI signature series - at least their rear architecture is different, their configurability is different, some of the internal components are apparently meant to be different, active cooling is apparently also used on the Datasat units, their specs are a little different and their prices are also quite different!

Yes, I'm agree with you that price is extremely different between ATI AT-6000 Signature Series and DATASAT RA-7300 & RA-2400. The main reason is Manufacturer cost might be lower than marketing cost
