Digital outputs? DB-25?


That's $21.5K USD!

It's a cut down version, so I don't think it has digi outs or db25 connectors.


Also, £10k equates to $16557. But almost certainly this will be less in the states than in UK as is always the way!

13.2 outputs, IR remote. Auro extra. £10k inc vat is a very nice price point.

Yeah, as I said on one of the other five thread we both seem to be posting on Nick, I was probably missing the VAT off the RS20i price when comparing in my mind. Andy says that the LS10 has no Dirac though also, just PEQ . . .

Unfortunately, we still do not yet seem to have an Auro-3D capable AVR or PrePro at a price point likely to sell sufficient units to create a real demand for Auro-3D BD movies...?!

That'll take time . . these things take a while to trickle down . . . I remember when 50" TV's were £8k each, now you can get them for a 20th of that. This is how new tech works . . .

Well storm / dms / auro have their new avr. And there was mention of Auro working with Denon and a few others. So I say in a year we will see some more reasonably priced offerings for the masses.

Auro Technologies 1/7/2014 Press Release (link) says "Over 50 international movies, 100 music albums recorded in the Auro-3D® format, and 2 blockbuster games will be released in the course of 2014" . . . so I do think we might see Auro-3D decoders priced around $2000 MSRP within the next 12 months...

Looks the goods - I note preliminary specs indicate HDMI 1.4a. Will be interested in seeing just how much is different (if any) to the RS20i around DSPs, DAC etc.

Is there any further word on the Storm Audio SSP-16-3D processor. I believe the retail on this piece is around $10,000. Might be a good alternative to the RS20I, and LS10, for 3D auro.

The StormAudio website also lists (but without details|pictures) an SSP 12-3D processor...

Shame they still don't offer the old Datasat .... the $6500 price tag was alot easier to swallow.

I think the AP20 is still available for "professional use"

You still have to find someone willing to sell it to you for "professional use".

I remember speaking with one of the guys from Dirac and he was explaining that the version to be found in the new Emotiva product is a limited, cut down version that fits within its processing abilities.


I guess that Datasat feel that they want a slice of the £10k market but would rather offer a very power peq to that of a cut down version of Dirac.


With the LS10 one could add a Trinnov, albeit using the analogue inputs, and come close to the cost of the RS20i. This would also bring up the dac stages to be somewhat comparable to the RS20i.


Or of course Carls DL2/3 when it finally ships.
