Holm Acoustics DSPre1: The Absolute Sound Review

by ct_acoustic_frontier July 06, 2022

The Absolute Sound has recently published a review of the Holm Acoustics DSPre1. From my interpretation of the specifications on their website and the user manual this unit is pretty much the equivalent of a DEQX at significantly higher cost. The Holm unit is priced at $8500 for a 'one way', which is to say that it only provides correction for one pair of inputs and does not provide any digital crossover capability. This is over twice the cost of a HDP-3 and four times the cost of a HDP-Express!

I would be very interested to hear from readers who have used the unit and even more interested in anyone who has compared it to the DEQX units.

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.
