Cool, Amie!

Quote:
Where that cancellation typically takes place is also in the particular frequency range which helps us in our mind create the ‘image’ – a location of where the sound is coming from. In a typical bipolar with these cancellations, the image gets very washed out and indistinct.

But what happens if the listener himself is bipolar? Does the imaging get more indistinct, or is it the most amazing listening experience ever? grin

Seriously, nice explanations.

So the future DSP option for the M80s and M60s simply flattens the frequency response of the speakers even more.

Maybe this has been asked before, but can the DSP algorithm be updated in the field? And can a DSP be tailored to particular room acoustics?

Go back and listen to Quadrophenia again. That should answer most of your questions.

If i remember correctly mark, the parts Andrew was looking at to have an "in the field update" would have been considerably more expensive.. So they will update the DSP at the factory, and also put the box on the test bench after the update to verify everything took prior to returning the unit.

I believe this has been partially addressed with the implementation of a boundary compensation switch.

I thought it would be ultra neat if they could literally custom code the DSP for you if you provide them with all of your wall to speaker distances, but the switch is the next best thing.

Why not have a switch with more than one distance option (instead of simply greater than or less than 2ft)? Possibly because the've already tested and found that going more percise or with smaller increments didn't make any, much, or enough of a difference.

I wasn't thinking about room dimensions alone, but also whether a room is "live or dead".

I'm not sure if the 'infinite number of room dimensions' would be the same as 'infinite number of monkeys on an infinite number of keyboards' . . . but I have shot the thread to Andrew for some insights. Interesting question!

Fixed that for you.

Amie, you are doing a wonderful job with the blog.

Thanks for giving us a little more insight on the new speakers, Amie. Can't wait to get these babies up and running, then I will give you guys some pics of my setup.

Also, when I ordered my speakers, there was no option for the three board DSP (VP160) so I think I still owe you some money for that and want to make sure that it's added.Thanks

Good point. I've also asked about an option to support two centres (VP160/80) and Andrew hinted that they might produce an LFR centre.
