The analog mods also seem cool, along with clock mods for the DEQ. I wonder how many people are aware they can mod these units.
Even with that said, the cost of a DEQ and DCX + Mods or factor in a high end dac like the Apogee and ur already up to about $3500-4500 (modded) bucks total. Already on your way to a Dolby Lake unit.
I probably don't need a Dolby Lake unit ever, since it's only as good as the operator who sets it up; but id sure love to take a crack at it haha. The computer software for control just looks awesome.
The only thing I don't like is the user does not have an option for Auto EQ / RTA Mic; but I guess you buy a piece like that you don't want software telling you what to do either.
Id love to hear a comparison review against expensive audiophile DACs might give me the push to want to experiment with something like that. Have you had any experience with configurations using 5.1 or 7.1 home theater with mains that require a 3 way active crossover?
When using the Lake, what are you using to get your measurements and tests? TrueRTA?
