Ultimate-Preamplifier by Analog-Precision / Re: Please Read !

Considering that DEQX have never published a set of laboratory grade measurements in their life, its very hard to tell what you will be getting. They have been making the old ones for over 10 years and I have never seen anything to verify their claimed specifications for those ones so who knows.

On the other hand there is a full set of verified measurements on the UP here. https://analog-precision.com/forum/performance-and-measurements/

DEQX have been selling the same old box for 10 years based on 1995 technology. Bear in mind its only an announcement they have a new model coming.

Ask DEQX to put a complete set of measurements up, REAL ONES, NOT EXPECTED ONES. Get them to send one to Audio Science Review for independent testing and see how they come up.

If you look deeper into the UP you will see that even DEQX new model won't do what the UP+ will do.

So basically DEQX have been flogging the same bit of old rope for years without bothering to upgrade it until they really couldn't get away with it any more ! To bad if you were one of those that recently bought into the last of their old outdated stock not knowing that they have been working on something in the background that they claim is "so much better" than what they had been selling to gullible customers ! Not a good look :(

How would you compare new DEQX to UPA? I have been researching and waiting, but new announcemnet looks good.
(Edit: removed inappropriate link. For more info please read Stereonet completely censors out Analog-Precision from its forum/search ! )

What actually were you waiting for ??

Something I looked into doing a while ago but for some reason the API for the Audio Weaver BSP package does not provide this information except through the host PC interface.

Audioweaver / Re: Phase corection, invert phase, balance
« on: July 25, 2021, 09:39:50 PM »
Hi David
In audio weaver ,
1. We can adjust delay (time align), but Can we adjust phase (phase correction) ?
2. Invert phase (I try invert phase but not effect, may be I choose wrong function ? (I try some tab invert , but no effect
3. Can we adjust balance on a stereo channel (for example mid high, the power amp for mid-high not balance ?)
Tks David

1. I believe there are some all-pass filter blocks I believe you can use to adjust phase.
2. There is a phase inversion block.
3. You would have to do this with attenuation blocks.

cheers

Can you change from default to simple ? That should emulate mac user remote.

Hi Phuong

For people used to Apple R/C's you can change the button mapping in the user settings from 'Default' to 'Simple' ie [ Main Menu ] -> [ Setup User ] -> [ Setup RC ] -> [Default/Simple]

Have you tried different R/C's as some might be stronger than others ?

More free plugs for another chinese branded non sponsored product - in fact 46 pages worth !! Try and get this much exposure on this forum if you are a local vendor without getting an email from the owner wanting you to cough up the $$$ ! I think not :( BTW starting fee is 2k a year and beyond that it varies from 1k a month to 5k a month unless of course you are a certain local amplifier manufacturer that gets a lifetime of free plugs from the mods :(  China-Hifi must be laughing all of the way to the bank thanks to stereonet. Ozzy ozzy ozzy - oi oi oi ! :D LOL

Just more censorship from the king of censors. Don't like the comment then delete the comment and ban the poster !! 

"Rude and disrespectful" :D LOL

The truth of the matter is stereonet has never been successful outside of Australia and the apparent success in Australia is now questionable in light of the activities above. Profiting out of playing one vendor off against another is not a viable business model and is abhorrent. If you had ever visited their UK forum before it was dismantled you would have seen that it was threadbare with little or no activity. Before the Asia forum was pulled it had no more than a dozen users online at the one time and this was purchased from an existing forum operator !! The entry into the US market has been a total flop and non existent too. If it wasn't for purchasing the databases off existing forum operators in NZ and Singapore the only way stereonet has managed to survive is off the back of fickle Aussies who put up with their crap !

OPINION: MATTER OF TRUST I HEAR YOU SAY?

I take it with Focal Loudspeakers being the front and centre picture in this article that Rushton wrote about a distributor "Transgressing the normal relationship", is Busisoft. Seems like Hell have hath no fury like a woman scorned!

https://www.stereonet.com/au/opinion/opinion-matter-of-trust/

He has a hide to talk about "TRUST" when his moderators have been undermining paying sponsors for years. Perhaps Busisoft got tired of his constant pushing of Harmon products and thought their sponsorship payments weren't really getting them any value for money.

Who knows, but TRUST does not appear to very high up the list of priorities. Look at what he has been allowing his moderators to get away with. Its all there people, dates, names, comments, everything.

I've heard the other side of this story and it's at complete odds with what is written in this article, so much so that it reminds me of an episode of Minder :D LOL This article smacks of sour grapes over someone who was no longer willing to pay their protection money to the stereonet coffers ! Good on them for standing by their own principles and not let themselves be bullied by thugs !!

cheers

We have split this thread up into two threads because we though the remaining posts deserved their own thread and rightfully so !! Click here to see the other thread

We have split this thread into two topics and put them in the Dark Room because we felt some of the content deserved its own separate thread for reasons which will become apparent !

Stereonet completely censors out analog precision from its forum/search !

The worst case of anti-competitive behavior we have ever seen in this industry !

With over 60,000 posts to their name he or she should have been banned and not demoted. Anyone else spruiking or continually plugging a particular brand would have been pulled up very quickly by the owner and either warned or banned outright according to their own forum rules and yet nothing happened even after complaints were made years ago :( I too more or less got banned for only writing two sentences that the owner of stereonet did not like as well as having the only thread on my product completely removed so go figure !! He guards it like a hawk and yet this is allowed to go on for years :(

Do these people honestly think that Australia is like the wild west and they can do what they like with impunity and absolutely no accountability ?

And that other monsieur coffee making character that appears to have written that damning PM with his phone number on it doesn't get let off the hook either !! He's up to his neck in it as well. :(

cheers

Which ever way you cut it these are still electronic devices which process electrical signals and need to be treated as such no matter how many flashing lights and buttons or how much they cost or how easy to use !! Without valid measurements these types of reviews are not worth the paper they are written on and are no more than someones opinion and likewise with the nonsense that is published by stereonet. There are only a handful of publishers that possess the relevant test equipment needed to evaluate equipment properly such as stereophile, ASR, Australian Hifi and to a lesser extent HNRR. The rest of them are either a waste of trees or internet bandwidth with stereonet no exception :(

Honestly speaking reviewing an amplifier without at least testing its power output and/or distortion, FR etc is like reviewing a car without driving it. There is only so many times you can wheel out the same old sound stage width and depth cliche before people wake up to the fact that they are just reading propaganda designed to suck then into buying something which is what websites like stereonet are designed to do :( Some of the best reviews I ever came across were from Audio magazine which would not only measure and listen to equipment but more often than not would often discuss the underlying technology using either a full or simplified schematic diagram provided by the vendor ;)

Having said that there are still some uses for a plain vanilla descriptive write-up of gear even if it is ones own opinion especially if there are some decent pictures of both the insides and outsides but I wouldn't really call it a full review unless it was accompanied by some decent measurements in order to confirm the manufactures specs ;)

I didn't know moderators were supposed to be in charge of sales ? I thought they were just supposed to police a forum and not get involved with promoting selected brands at the expense of others but this betty boop character just can't help him or herself :( The question here is how many prospective sales have been lost because of the continual promotion of this one competing brand by this particular mod ?

cheers
