Yes, the reason is they didn't design the digital board - the HDMI board comes from MDS and until recently they didn't have a hdmi2.0a compatible board. They only had ones handling HDMI 1.4 (and thus hdmi2.0 via a hack).

I was inquiring about hdmi2.0a support a few months ago so that's how I know the HDMI board is a separate product. I had wondered since HDMI 1.4 would seem quite backwards for a product released today.

The optimal PRIR is measured through your own ears, and describes the room as heard by your ear/brain hearing system, which was affected by your seating location, speaker placement around you, equipment and electronics being used, floor/wall/ceiling baffles and treatments, etc.. The calibration microphones allow precise capturing of how your own unique ears and brain and skull process sound, as heard uniquely by you. The separately measured HPEQ (for a given headphone/amp) similarly describes how that particular headphone setup sounds to your ear/brain hearing system for all frequencies.

By combining the measurements digitally captured in both the PRIR and HPEQ and using them "in reverse", the Realiser can now play any new content back through those headphones and PRIR/HPEQ combination to produce the illusion for your ear/brain hearing system as if you were listening to that new content in the very original room described by the PRIR. This is the purpose and goal of the technology, to DUPLICATE the sound of a real room as it was heard by you through real speakers, but instead now using headphones, for any new content played back through the technology. That room can be good or bad or great or average, and the Realiser will DUPLICATE it. That's its job.

There really is only one right way for the digital representation of any particular unique listening environment to be properly created for your particular unique hearing system, and that is to have YOU go to THAT ROOM and sit for a "measurement" and come away with a unique PRIR file that digitally describes how that room sounded to your hearing system.

If you use somebody else's PRIR that was measured uniquely for them in some listening environment, by definition this really has to be less than optimal ideal. We all hear slightly differently, same as we get uniquely measured for prescription eyeglasses. You want to borrow somebody else's prescription eyeglasses? Can you even have an expectation that your seeing will be helped? It's probably not going to be as good as having your own custom-measured prescription eyeglasses, I think you'll agree.

Is borrowing a PRIR really the same as borrowing someone else's prescription eyeglasses? I can't really say. Does it "work"? Probably. Does it sound "great"? Probably not. And yet there is a sharing mentality in this user community suggesting it can really be done, although I myself don't participate and personally don't buy into the whole premise.

Trust me, you will never obtain maximum optimal results and enjoyment from this Realiser technology unless you are using a PRIR/HPEQ that has genuinely been custom measured for you and your own ears at a real listening environment. Same as with prescription eyeglasses. Anything else is bound to be sub-par, although "who knows how it will sound to you" and whether you will feel it to be "acceptable"?

And again, if you create a PRIR in an ordinary room with ordinary equipment that sounds pretty ordinary to you when sitting in that room, the Realiser will do nothing more than "duplicate" that same original true ordinary sound through headphones. It does not "improve" or "optimize" or magically produce the sound of a million dollar recording studio. It's job is to DUPLICATE the listening environment in which that PRIR was captured, and if it does that then it is working 100% perfectly.
It seems like there are two sets of data at play.

The first is the measurement of how you hear, which is obtained from sticking the microphones in your ears. This is the personalized part.

The second is the measurement of how a particular room and set of speakers sound, this seems like it should not have to be personalized, it could be obtained through a mic at a set position in that room.

By taking the data from the room/speaker measurements and filtering it through the lens of the personalized ear measurements, why wouldn't it be possible to recreate what it would sound like if you had actually been measured in that room? From reading on the Kickstarter page, it sounds like that's something they're going for as an option with this.

Taking it a step further it seems like it could be possible to even split it up into three parts: your own ear measurements, measurements of particular sets of speakers captured anechoically, and measurements of various rooms.

That would really be the ultimate application for this tech - an automated calibration that measures your own ears/head-related-transfer-function, and can then apply that to any set of virtual speaker and rooms you want to lay on top of it.

For example, you could measure your own hearing/head response, then download speaker data files to create a virtual surround system of B&W 802 D3s, Focal Utopias, Magnepan 20.7s, JL Gothams, or whatever other speakers/subs were in the database, then download the room response file for Skywalker Ranch's Stag Theater, the El Capitan, or whatever other room/theater you wanted, and have the Smyth unit apply the proper algorithms to make it sound like you're there listening to those speakers in that setting.

It doesn't sound like it's quite there yet, but possibly moving in that direction, and certainly pretty cool even where it is right now.

I believe your thoughts here are absolutely on target, as to how the math behind all of this really works and what the true potential is for creation of a PRIR from its underlying fundamental raw elements.

While the current "analog" method of PRIR creation is derived from the sum total of how the calibration microphones "hear" the sound of the room and speakers and equipment, as interpreted by your own head and ears, in truth there really are those three separate and discrete components working together for what makes up this single "analog" result:

(a) your own hearing/head response to any sound, which is truly unique to you (i.e. your hearing "corrective prescription ear-glasses", giving you "20-20 reference hearing" no matter what your auditory characteristics are)

(b) the "pure" anechoic characteristics of the electronics, cabling and speakers which are reproducing the sounds you are hearing, and

(c) the "colored" characteristics of the listening environment room/theater/auditorium, its size and shape, floor, wall and ceiling materials and treatments, sound baffles, horizontal/vertical speaker placement around the listening chair location position, etc.

I think you're absolutely right, that the above three "independent tracks" obtained separately and uniquely can be "mixed together" digitally, producing a PRIR that reflects precisely how you and your own head/ears WOULD HAVE HEARD sound from those electronics and speakers, in that listening room environment, if you had actually been there with calibration microphones in your ears and created a PRIR the old fashioned "analog" way.

Seems completely plausible that (b) and (c) can be "acquired" or bought, independently, and then "mixed" together with (a) your own "prescription ear-glasses lens filter" that is the precise description of your own personal auditory hearing system. Voila! A PRIR is born for you.

The math involved in a PRIR clearly makes this possible. I had Smyth correct my AIX 7.1 PRIR, because Lorr had mistakenly set one of the speaker angles incorrectly in the A8 Realiser setup prior to my calibration session. He keeps his own personal copy of the PRIR's he measures for people, and in reviewing it noticed that one of the speakers was set wrong. In theory, the "playback" through this PRIR would have simulated that speaker at the incorrect virtual location. Smyth was able to "reverse out" the mathematical effect of the incorrect speaker angle setting in the PRIR, accomplishing a "virtual relocation" of the speaker over to where it really was relative to where I was sitting. So now sound coming from that "virtual speaker" in my headphones appeared to be coming at me from the proper angle. Amazing! PRIR post-processing.

It's completely reasonable that the above three "tracks" could similarly be captured separately, mixed together, and even manipulated as desired or required (e.g. as is already possible playing back through a given PRIR, to add or remove "room reverb" as desired or required).

Does it measure the frequency response from user's headphone? Reason I'm asking if I'm using HifiMan headphone instead of Stax, will it sound the same?

And the ability to do 7.1.6 and possibly 9.1.2 for the Atmos/DTS:X decoding. Selectable, if you want wides over heights or more heights.

As a Kickstarter backer I can't wait for its release, this is going to be so awesome.

Optical out of A16 feeding external DAC (of my own choice) with balanced outputs, which feeds the headphone amp. Perfectly acceptable cost-effective decision. For example, the Oppo 05 vs. 03 player options differ by $700, with or without high-end DAC and XLR.

Given potential A16 cost impact and overall flexibility and options, I'd rather avoid the likely price of an audiophile DAC and increased physical size for the XLR components in the A16. With my A8 today I feed my own external Audio-GD NFB9 DAC via optical, which then feeds XLR to my Stax SRM-007Tii amp. With my upcoming new second location A16 I will be using a new Oppo Sonica DAC (SDAC-3), again fed via optical from the A16.

There are I think 16 analog inputs and 16 analog outputs... I wonder if they can be used for Atmos out. If you don't want to use the headphones ...

I'm new here. I saw your question just now. Since you posted it 3 months ago chances are you know the answer by now but I'll give the answer anyway:
The Realiser A16 will have an AV amp mode in which it can function as a surround processor pre-amp.
You will be able to set 32 band parametric EQ (PEQ), level and delay for all channels, and assign one of the 2 headphone volume knobs to do the master volume.
The only thing missing (I think, although I hope not) will be automatic setting of PEQs, levels and delays, so you will have to figure out a way to set them yourself.

The last update from Smyth was in November. Still no shipping date. They haven’t even submitted for Dolby certification yet. If I had to guess best case is that it’s at least March until they ship anything.

Interesting news... Dolby Atmos certification passed, so they're going to be shipping like that.

DTS X support to be added as a future firmware update once certified.

But an interesting thing that was never mentioned. - Auro 3D support, once certified as well! Would be interesting to try, I suppose.
