So… hooked up my DS SR to the Elac Navis.
Not blow away.
Moved to more of a nearfield position and getting a much better sound. Navis about 4 feet from listening position.
Thinking of returning thre Navis and getting Genelec 8341 + the Genelec 7360 Sub.
Heard the DSP is astonishing.
The issue is the analog from the DS SR get converted again in the Genelecs… does this defeat the purpose.
analogue inputs are digitized to PCM192kHz
I am convinced that DSP is about to go mainstream big time with active speakers. The nice thing about the Navis is they are analog and therefore the DS SR would seem like a great match.
However from my understanding the Genelecs destroy the Navis and are also quite a bit more expensive. Zeos the youtube reviewer loved the Genelecs but hated the Navis.
Problem is I am wondering if the DS SR is completely wasted with the Genelecs using their GLM room correction DSP.
Darko said he noticed a difference with the Genelec hooked to DS SR… but I dont trust that guy… he is a shill(gets his gear from mfg)… Zeos is not(gets his gear from fans).
Anyone here have any experience with this setup?
It would seem actives with DSP and internal DAC are better served with a streamer/preamp combo than a streamer/dac/preamp combo.
any opinions paul?
this is a brave new world and where the mass market of hifi is going.
