Indy Audio Labs Acurus Act4


Hello all,

Has anyone here had a chance to hear this new processor.  Im trying to decide between this new offering and the Marantz, or the McIntosh Mx 160.

Mark Seaton was using the Acurus in his AXPONA demo room this year, the room sounded very good. 

Thr big problem with it though is that it’s room correction features are incredibly basic.  The new Marantz has their best version of Audyssey, and the McIntosh looks like it licenses Lyngdorf’s RoomPerfect which is very highly regarded.  

Another I’d take a look at is the Anthem AVM 60, ARC room correction is again very highly regarded and any Anthem gear I’ve seen is built to a very high standard, plus they’re offering 20% off through the end of the month if you trade in any old electronic piece (hell, just buy a $20 t-amp off of Amazon and trade that). 

Depending on your urgency, ATI has a 16 channel unit coming out with Dirac built-in, and the Emotiva RMC-1 with 16 channels and Dirac for only $5,000 is on the horizon.  
Thanks for the feedback.   No rush in getting a processor at the moment, I'll just continue to focus on putting together the two channel components in the meantime.  
Hi
Have made any choice about a Home Theater Processor ?
I just learned that Acurus ACT4 `s   room correction device  cost 3000 Euro. But the dealer can lend it to the buyer for free for a couple of days.

It would be a 4 microphones  room correction device , primary for the use of dealers and integrators .
A more professionnal room correction  device than you usualy find .
According to a dealer…..
I am currently using the Act4 and it is just incredible the sound quality it provides even with just two channel listening.  I had the NAD and did a head to head comparison in my living room and the Act4 was quite a bit better in terms of sound quality.  There are quite a few features that the NAD had that the Act4 doesn't, but anytime you listen, it's well worth it.
I've had my Act4 now for 15 days and am still amazed at the sound and video quality it presents. Did some minor setup in my room and am beyond thrilled with my purchase. No I would not say that it has all the features or settings that many other brands include but to me, after 15 days of auditioning, there is nothing I've heard past or present that comes even close to the performance of the Act4. I am constantly amazed at the attack, response, purity, clarity, depth and width I discern in musical performance of all genre's I've tried. All instruments sound as they should in the performance. Indyaudio certainly has developed one outstanding product in the Act 4. There may be equal to or better units out there but I have not heard them and would not be able to afford them if I had. The Act 4 really delivers.

I am glad I took a leap of faith with this purchase.
Customer support has been superb as it should be for a product of this caliber.  Jim S CEO of Marketing is working with me personally to get my unit upgraded with the latest firmware as nearest dealer is several hundred miles away. 

For those who are in the market for a superb processor, Do not pass up auditioning the Act4, unless you are deaf you WILL be amazed by what you hear.
