Nice to see SL finally embracing dsp to its fullest.

Considering the complexity of some of the xo's he's had to come up with for his designs, seems a no brainer to me.

Over time, most of us will embrace DSP.

I am sure that with minidsp SL will get many new fans and customers!
If one learns to measure speakers it is also quite easy to modify the design for different drivers, and LX521 versions to come.

As you're aware, DSP is a good platform to tweak transfer functions. Perhaps this is just an interim solution until he's able to construct a "Super ASP".

I actually sort of enjoy dealing with the circuit implementations/modifications/etc/etc of analog projects. There's a certain romance and tactile satisfaction to firing up the soldering iron and making modifications that is non-existent when just flashing some new code into a nondescript black box. The SPICE program on the computer gets less use. The oscilloscope is cold more. I could go on. In that sense, the DSP direction takes some fun out of the efforts.

And, I believe, there is still a chunk of DIY'ers that would not allow DSP gadgets within their playback systems for any reason. So, it's a double-edged sword.

Since I was one of the guys who advocated the DSP direction to SL, I'm mentally torn now. I think I may need some professional help to deal with it.

That said......John, I can find out what the latest effort is if you want to re-engineer it before SL announces it.

Dave.

I met SL in Helsinki at AES 55th, Aug 2013. I asked him if he has new projects bubbling under and he said NO, LX will do... Then came LXChallege for minidsp configuration and LXMini, now this. A dog can't stop his tail! (I introduced to him my AINO dipole project with minidsp...)

I have zero skills to tweak analog crossovers or ASPs. Minidsp UI is so easy that it is funny! Davey, did you know that there still are guys who solder their tube amps today? Perhaps ASPs will survive too!

You bet I do. In fact, I just repaired a Dynaco Stereo 70 for a fella the other day. Good fun.
