hi, i come back with my listening comparison between DSP and Analog(bypass) in Cary 12.
mainly, for DSP, i tried HDMI to Cary12 from OPPO95, and XLR to Cary12 from OPPO95(but with INput 1 set to "DSP" Mode")
for analog, i use XLR to Cary12 with Cary 12 INPUT1 set to "bypass).
repeated same music track for several times, i got following feeling, under DSP mode, Cary's gain is not enough, i must raise volume till -11DB to get good listening volume. and comparing to bypass mode, i feel warmer sound with more precize "positioning", more focusing, feel more comfortable.
for Bypass mode, gain is much biger, sounds more mighty, but harder. but the ingegration of low/mid/high frequency is much better, since under "DSP"mode, Cary is doing bass management based on my setting "Xoverpoint" together with my Sub.
except the unsatisfying low frequence area perfomance, i'd like to be more like the DSP mode sound.
