The next spate of processors will probably follow in the wake of G2 Blu-ray with 4k video and who-knows-what 3D audio. In the meantime, I am eagerly awaiting Carl Huff's DiracLive outboard unit, the DL2.
The guy I talked to on the phone wouldn't elaborate except to say that other units have had the problem. Very tight lipped. Blown cap was just that, a defective component. One moment I had sound, next it was gone.
Saw a demo of the Redray player and have seen a lot of 4K video in the course of my work -- it's supercool but I'm a bit of a resolution freak. Not sure how important it will be to the masses unless/until costs are similar to today's HD sets. I wonder too whether who-knows-what audio, if it requires more speakers, will ever get much traction. That said, hearing Quantum Logic at Cedia '11 had me scheming about bolting four surrounds to the ceiling.
Why the DL2 vs., say, a Trinnov unit, 2 ch DSP anti-mode, etc.? Or simply an RS20 and skip the A/D/A?Edited by rblnr - 12/28/12 at 8:41am
