Chop, truly exciting stuff.
I apologize if this has been covered, but any build thread or links regarding the acoustic design elements of the room?
You and I have discussed processors, has the Xilica offerings fallen behind BSS London platform? Or is that merely an apples to oranges thing, and not fully comparable. Xilica doesn't really offer the drag and drop config style of the BSS, but the full size XLR I/O are attractive. Are your preferences software based only? I've stripped and terminated thousands of connectors, I've got no issue with that, it's just so nice to have the full size chassis mounted XLRs.
Also, you're absolutely right about the EP4000, .. clipping creates very odd, unpredictable and most importantly unstable behavior. In some scenarios they can "dump", whereby they appear to lose all damping and control of CEMF. Feedback topology? Anyway they're a solid solution within their means
. I've got two of them myself. Somewhat like the Nelson Pass' Adcom 555 in the 90's, and the David Hafler 500 before it in the 80's, .. everyone seemed had one at one time or another,.. affordable, powerful.
Not really significant, however I believe the EP4000 was measured at 450w/ch@8ohms.
When you dabble into the custom, bespoke world, it's always a good thing ... as seen here
