Answer from Kevin V:

There is no analog pass-through. We have found that modern A-D and D-A converters do not warrant one. But you can set presets that are useful for this, such as a 2.0 or 2.x...

Wow. We agree almost down the line. Having switched from a Firehawk to a StudioTek130, there is no way I'm going back to an ALR screen tho. Even the slight shimmer of the StudioTek130 occasionally...

As always, pick your compromise :)

IIRC ARCOS has a specific EQ setting tailored for the Stewart Microperf screens. I assume the SDP75 will have the same.

Honestly not just trying to talk you into an SDP75. Point being that you can save the $7K for the SDEC, plus 7.1.4 = 12 channels, close to the max of the 16 channel unit anyway. Plus you have all the...

No. But keep in mind too that you will be able to load speaker profiles like the M2 / 7 series into the SDP75 so you can use any amplifier you like (with the appropriate power output, of course).

No, the SDEC will be around for any Synthesis system that does not use an SDP75, which should be a fair number of them.

The mic should list out around $700.
