    The DEQX PreMate

    Just curious if anyone has used this piece? Reviews sound good and it looks interesting. I have no knowledge of this type of gear but would like to learn a bit more. Thanks.
    May your journey be free of incident.

    Well, if G.T. uses these they must be pretty good. Expensive, but good.

    If I were to try the DEQX gear I think I would opt for the HDP-4. I would want to go all active with a processor like this.

    They do look really interesting.

    GT mentioned these at one of the Dome's GTG's and was pretty impressed with them.
    Always fun learning more.......

    I'd be fully onboard with you until the time the invoice had to be paid, especially if you're going to add the Earthworks calibration kit.
    Out.

    Deqx

    Ken P ran his Westlakes with these and I used one with my 4345 ..... absolutely top drawer . Seems expensive , but look at what you get in that box ..... Pre-amp , DAC , Room correction (PEQ) , time alignment , Crossover .... thats good value for money anyway you look at it . Down side is you need to understand how to program it . If you have the money get the pro's to come and help you get started .

    I'd be interested in trying DEQX again. I used one of their first generation units for a few years when they were first introduced. The learning curve was pretty steep, but once you get the hang of it using the product made sense and was very good. I ultimately stopped using it because I didn't think the A to D and D to A was as invisible as I'd like, but that was over ten years ago and that technology has improved a hell of a lot since then.

    That said, whether you are using DEQX, BSS, DBX, Behringer, or any other DSP/crossover... there are only a handful of settings that will approach "correct" and an infinite or near infinite number of settings that will really screw your system up. You really need to know what you are doing and invest the time to get it "right".
