The Megaliths are now running the updated dspMusikLCD digital crossover for their new placement and MS-3 RoomEQ room correction.  OH YEAH!!!   :thumb:

Let me know if you want to come down for a listen.  You might never be the same. :shock:

The conversion from ChipAmps to Parasound Halo A23 amps is underway.  Waiting on the shipment of 10 amps to replace the prototypes I built.

These should make for some interesting listening sessions.

The Parasound A23 amps arrive Friday.   

Then unboxing and connection to the system for checkouts. 

Once amps are checked, time to try the new room correction mic system via the dspMusikLCD ADC to USB output.  The dspMusikLCD becomes its own measurement system with RoomEQ as the crossover and HiRez DAC's are the sweep signal generator.  Measurements at 24bit/192KHz vs the 16bit/44.1KHz for the Dayton Audio UMM-6 USB mic.

The BlunderBUSS and TWL HAL power cables are about to get a serious workout.  :o

Just received word the 16 channel dspMusikLCD will be here on 3 December to run The Megaliths speakers with the Parasound A23 amps. 

The president of Danville Signal will be here for 3 days for discussions and listening trials as we dial in the system.  Will be teaching him speaker and room measurements as part of a technology exchange program.

Will post pictures once it arrives for setup and listening!

WOOHOO!!!  :thumb:

The 10 Parasound Halo A23 amps have arrived.

Unboxing and connections have started.

The sub module now has the woofer and new wiring installed and connected back to the 6x12 stack.

Two more black Parasound A23 amps unboxed and ready to connect to The Megaliths.  Match the color of the subs and Neo10's.

Using silver Parasound A23 amps for the GT Audio Works ribbons.
