I sat next to JA at the demo in NYC and, in general, share his views albeit with a bit less enthusiasm. The latter is only because, as has been observed, they offered no comparisons between the MQA...

No. The Oppo is still sending DSD regardless of what the processor does with it afterwards. The only way to know is to (1) get a digital output from the processor after EQ or (2) ask the...

No. I do not believe that REW will not tell you if there is a PCM conversion?

As does NAD with Audyssey, Krell with ARES, DataSat with Dirac and Meridian with MRC. Those also include all channels. Might be others.

I can add that when I had to choose between higher rez output and Audyssey with downsampling, I preferred the latter. However, only the user should make this choice and try not to be prejudiced.

That is not adequate evidence. Sure, the Foundation now accepts DSD but I would like to hear from Krell that they are actually processing DSD for ARES. If they are, it is a first in the entire...

Mebbe. Ideally, and accomplished in some setups, the distance/delay and levels are set individually for each woofer but the overall EQ is shared. Can the XMC-1 do that?

The amp is quite sweet and smooth. Detailed does not mean bright or etched but resolving and it does so better than the earlier digital amps I've used.

My recollection is that it is 24/96 but, although I still have one, it is too tedious to test it out. However, the fact that it is analog in/out puts it at a disadvantage compared with EQ, built-in...

That is not what I was referring to. Pro kit users are presented with 3 target curve options during the calibration process and before corrections are calculated.

I still have one. No DEQ, no VC and no IR. In fact, it is hard, for me, to distinguish the color changes on the emblem that indicate EQ vs. Bypass. :)
