And why does it always degenerate into a p!ssing contest over Apple/MS? I use my choice for my reasons and others use theirs for their reasons. Period. End of discussion. Those who are not lemmings will make this choice on utility, not hype.

No p¡ssing contest on my behalf, just correcting a wrong analogy.
There is some stuff that is not available on Mac yet. If you really need one of those programs, off course you should use windows (or Linux for that matter).
I use dual boot and an old win 7 license I was given, works like a charm (whether you want to pay for windows is of course a matter of how much you'll use it, and how much you want to support a product that you are really using more out of neccessity rather than choice).

I use win 7, and Win XP pro at home, I use an I pad 2 because laptops suck. Both platforms have great software and both have problems.

In the engineering department of an Chicago based audio company I once worked for we had a sign that read; BOSE, NO HIGHS, NO LOWS!

yep a favorite quote of people who have never heard 901's properly set up.
I refer to the 2 way 15" woofer big tweeter home stereo systems as boom hiss speakers. Or to twist the popular saying;
"If you only hear highs and lows those aren't bose speakers"

The majority of music is in the mid range, only recently has the kick the drum become a lead instrument.

As a former employee of a certain august MA audio company (in their minds anyway) I must correct you all it's: "No highs, no lows, must be B*se"

Some of us play both sides of the field and have fun. See pic
System 1:
Speakers: econowave with Eminence Beta 12LTA + QSC wave guide / Dayton DE250 compression driver . Enclosures are gutted realistic mach one cabinets operating as sealed & stuffed boxes
Amplification: biamped with Mcintosh MC2100 on the woofers and Push Pull 2A3 on the horn tweeters.
Crossover/EQ: minidigi/minidsp
DAC: coax digital output from a hifimediy DAC
Source: Pogoplug hacked to a squeezebox client and server (squeezeplug)


System 2:
Speakers: Bose 901 series ii
Amplification: Behringer INuke 3000 DSP
Crossover/EQ: Using the DSP on the behringer . Used REW to generate correction functions for starters and implemented them via the PC interface. Still tweaking but almost there. I have the Bose EQ module but the DSP approach is much more flexible.
DAC:analog output from a hifimediy DAC

My 901's are powered with a Carver PM700 amp off the ext amp outputs of my Yamaha RX992 Receiver.

I had a BBE 442 and a rane ac23 crossover bypassing the 901 EQ and using a
samson s2000 amp for the EV sb18 sub for awhile when my PA wasn't being used. That was louder but didn't sound as good as normal listening levels.

Default Thread back from the dead...

Last two guys: do you find the INuke gives enough volume? I am ok with a NU3000 or NU6000 and my 901s but gain staging has been a problem sometimes.
