Great post Park, thanks for the answer.
It is also worth adding you can feed in via a USB (from for instance a PC or Mac) and then back out with optical to an external Dac if that has an optical input, or use the internal Dac and feed out via phonos. As for the quality of the internal Dac that would be a subjective matter, personally I feel it does the job of a Dac very well and use this for digital streaming, I still use my Audionote transport and Dac for cd replay though this is because at the moment I do not have a Dac with optical in. I am looking around for a good Dac to stock which fits in with my current product range.......
I have another 3 coming in this coming week, pre orders being taken now, the factory are trying to keep up with demand!
Now in stock, credit and debit facilities available on this fantastic product.
I've a (stupid?) question. If you have an amp with tone controls, would you be able to plug the unit in and adjust the tone controls on your amp to match what the unit acheives, then remove the unit from your system, or does it do other things to affect the sound?
No, it is not the same as tone controls. The levels are varied through the frequency.
Thanks, obvious really. Unless you're a thicky!
No not at all
The unit measures the in room response with a mic and then automatically reduces or increases the levels to produce a flat bass response at the listening position, you can set quite a few different profiles so it's possible to measure and fix at all the seating positions if you like and flick through them with the remote. You can also adjust everything manually after if you prefer a different eq to flat, I for instance have a little lift at the top and bottom as I prefer the sound, all switchable via remote. It's a breeze to use, I challenged the wife to have a go and she cracked it first time.
The unit needs to be left connected for it to work.
Great product and I would wish u good luck with it but I feel that's not necessary, looks like they are selling themselves
I have one question which if I've overlooked the answer on here somewhere I apologise.
Does the unit (dual core version) produce better results in the digital domain or analogue?
between SB and Dac or Dac and amp?
Hi Danny, good question, the Audiophile lurking inside me likes the idea of running the digital through it and then in to a Dac. Mine is connected between the pre and power amps though, its an easy connection solution for me and at the low frequencies I'm dealing with I'm not so sure you could hear a differenc between the connection methods.
This looks a brilliant little device and I'm very tempted, however, with my system I run a turntable and digital sources into an integrated amp. Having read the various posts, do I take it that I'd need 2 of these units running in line with each source?
No just the one, you would connect from the Squeezebox to the Dualcore then to the Caiman, the Whest to the Dualcore then to your amp.
I have DRC in my system (care of a Tact 2.2x).
DRC is fecking brilliant!
People fret & sweat over a dB or two in the chain, spend buckets on boxes & cables, yet if you do an in room response curve it will look like a cross section of the Alps. For a couple of hundred quid this DRC will pretty much sort that, despite the naysayers.
If it ain't going in, it ain't coming out
I'm very interested in this (dual core stereo version). Is the volume control digital or analogue, and what's the output level of the balanced outs? Is the SPDIF input only optical? Is there the possibility to trial at home? Thanks!
I was wondering about a KRK ergo, but this isn't much more and I've read the ergo doesn't reclock as a dac, but this does?

One more question Jack, are all the analogue outputs active regardless of which input is used?
I'll look into your questions later guys, we're on our holidays in Cornwall this week but I've got wifi back at the holiday home so I'll look through it all later.
