I couldn't recall why I though the QSC's latency was much faster than the Xilica's, so I looked it up again. The Xilica XP's latency is actually 1.5ms, but that's with the FIR filters 'off'. With...

Aside from the number of channels in the piece (up to 24 for the Datasat, up to 34 for the Trinnov), I'm not sure what the EXTRA $20k-$28k buys over the total cost of a 9.1.6 preamp (when they are...
