DEQX HDP-3 awarded Star Component Award in Audiophilia review

by Nyal Mellor April 12, 2011

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>
<p>Acoustic Frontiers is an authorized DEQX dealer. <strong><em>Note the DEQX HDP-3 and DEQX HDP-Express have been discontined and replaced by the <a href=HDP-4, HDP-Express II and Mate.
