Cool, the speakers are not even 1% of the system cost at $18K….My guess is a CHR-70….

Since the dustcap does not resemble the CHR-70 (any generation), but does look like that of the A7...

The drivers look like Alp 7 to me also; the way they are installed - a bit deep inside the baffle - that should not be particularly good for dispersion.

Oic, the dustcap does look different. Chr-70 has a glue trace while the Alpair is seamless.

And is a different shape... ;)

Here's a rather poor-quality picture I snapped yesterday (Sunday) with my phone. Initially, I thought I was hearing the multi-function unit playing a vinyl rip, but apparently, it was just doing DSP and amp duties (as there was a turntable far off to the left, if I recall correctly).

I like this general approach of using DSP to flatten a driver out. I'm curious if the multi-function unit is also a preamp doing the RIAA eq.

For me the A7.3 don't need much in the way of flattening throughout most of its range - certainly not as compared to say an FE126E - but even in something like the latter, I'd be wary of EQ'ing too much to smooth response curves - it's not all that difficult to flatten the life right of the music in the search for + /- 3dB from 20/20K .


Where DSP appeals to me is XO, room correction, and of course many current HT receivers incorporate auto-calibrating DSP functions that are so easy to use that one can forget all that is happening in those little chips.

I think DSP-based room-correction processor is a good idea.
