Was there any mention of what one of these new CBIII/HD's are going to cost and then the price just to add this optional HDMI card and whatever optional DACS one might want or to be able to afford?
I mean to say, the new CBIII/HD will already be built new, not needing any work other then to, what I would imagine is to simply slide in the new video type card that also has all the other audio goodies attached to it.
Or just the cost of the optional 4 port AES/EBU digital output card, in which case no internal DACS would be required and I suppose that would simplify the process of adding some sort of a room correction device.
I'm guessing, ballpark, that sort of configuration should "ONLY" run about
25g's+ over the cost of getting 2 Xtreme DAC cards but instead you get 8 channels of those glorious sounding Gen VIII's and a way to use room correction! Of course you'll also need a whole nutha rack too.
Or is there gonna be some other (less costly) way of using room correction with the new CBIII/HD or whaterever it'll be called?
They didn't need it to do video processing because there are plenty of other options available to accomplish that but what of room correction? Is it possible to accomplish that without degrading the performance of Xtreme DAC cards?
Whether they'll be a way of using room correction with the new CBIII/HD or not without having to go with all Gen VIII's, they should at least come up with a name for this thing in the not too distant future.
This way we'll have a way to differentiate between which units we're talking about, the new generation of CBIII's or the old.
As surely, internally they must be laid out somewhat differently and their capabilities will be dramatically different. But that's just my opinion. I still want it no matter what the name is.
