Erik, just make sure I understand. A DSP between my transport and DAC will convert with it's own DAC, do its eq, then convert back to the undecoded format (ADC). Then my MHDT will see it as before.
Alternatively, the Loki is at the end if the chain and will do it's own internal ADC, process, then DAC on the way to amp.
Seems either way, it's another DAC/ADC or ADC/DAC! I'm guessing theres no free lunch and you get what you pay for!
I'm leaning towards a little Left on the balance knob, even though it's full spectrum. The lows are less easily located so less to disrupt the imaging.
As someone who's built similar speakers, is placing a reflective "extension" on top of the left speaker going to do anything of consequence? I think the xo is 2500hz so that's perfect.
Thanks all Agonners for the input. This is a prime example of folks just trying to help and sharing insights. I'm traveling right now and may report back with news if its constructive.
