I asked Glenn some questions... here is his response (my specific questions in bold)
"How does it compare to prism sound DACs ????
I don't own or currently use Prism Sound DAC's
Glenn.. what was the pre-pro you are comparing this to (i.e. what have you been using to listen to your work?)
For home use, I was using the Emotiva UMC-200. Prior to that, Sony ES product. In studio, Avid HD IO, Avid 192 Analog IO, Avid Omni IO, IZ Radar all clocked to Apogee Big Ben.
And what have you used in the past for listening to consumer content?
What are your sources and how are they being fed into the XMC?
Kindly see signature below.
And you didn't say if you had run a Dirac setup yet.
Dirac not currently implemented."
Here is his equipment list:
"Emotiva XMC-1 • Emotiva XPA-5 Gen 2 • Emotiva ERC-3 • Polk CS400i Center Channel Speaker • Polk PSW450 Subwoofer • Polk RT-20P Front Speakers • KEF Q60 Rear Speakers • Apple TV • Sony Blu-Ray • Samsung 65" Smart TV"
On another note...
Dirac isn't going to be ready when the units start shipping, nor does it ship with the microphone needed for calibration... they give a time frame of within 2 months.
Guess the first owners will need their own SPL/setup solution..
