DEQX HDP-3 awarded Star Component Award in Audiophilia review

by ct_acoustic_frontier July 06, 2022

Martin Appel of Audiophilia has written a short but sweet review of the DEQX HDP-3 which concluded with the unit being awarded the Star Component Award. The HDP-3 is a digital crossover, loudspeaker correction and room correction device that can be integrated into an existing system in many, many ways as described fully on our DEQX page. /></span></span></p>
<p>Martin's conclusion?</p>
<p>The bottom line is that Kim Ryrie* has improved an already outstanding  product** and created one that blurs the line between digital and  analogue. Detail without edginess, unbridled musicality, transparent,  dynamic and a level of involvement with the performance that is simply  stunning. I’ve tried to describe, using some of our audiophile  terminology, what one hears with the HDP-3 processor in your system and  words don’t do it justice. It behooves you to try one — once in your  system, you won’t let go. Removing it from your system will return you  to a duller, two dimensional stereo that’s lost its magic. My system  would be lost without it.</p>
<p>* Kim Ryrie is the founder of DEQX.</p>
<p>** The HDP-3 was compared by Martin to the outgoing PDC-2.6 in the review.</p>

Room Correction: A Primer

by Nyal Mellor July 28, 2022 0 Comments

Much confusion still exists about what a room correction product does, what problems it can (and cannot) solve and therefore its 'place' in a modern high quality sound reproduction system. Part of the challenge of understanding room correction is that it requires a reasonable level of understanding of sound quality, acoustic science, acoustic measurement and psychoacoustics (how humans perceive sound). The majority of the articles I have read online or in print magazines do not cover the fundamentals in enough depth to allow the curious and committed reader a chance to understand room correction on anything more than a cursory level. By the end of this article I hope that you will have learnt enough to judge for yourself what room correction can and cannot do and how best to apply it in the context of a world class music or home theater system.
