To set up a discussion....
Now that Axiom has powered speakers
Seems like the next step would be to add a DSP.

- what kind of improvements could we expect with an active crossovers?
- would the future of audio be to send the signal to each speaker digitally?
- does Room correction and surround processing need to be done centrally or can some of it be offloaded to a DSP enabled speaker?
- would adding a mic at a speaker help with speaker/room calibration (like apple's unit)?
- would the extra cost be worth it?

Just off loading some thoughts as I search for a pre-pro and attempt to redesign my room (for the Nth time ... )

I anticipate within 5 years we won't need speakers. New headphone technology will displace speakers. Imagine the disruption!

It sucks that all your beloved audio equipment will become worthless, eh Blair?

Mojo ... why stop there ... I mean why would you need speakers when the chip in your head can feed the signal directly ...

The chip in the head won't happen in 5 years. That will come in 2035.

That will be the satellite dish inside Mojo's head so he can watch British sitcoms and Italian variety shows from Europe. grin
